Hello Foxy - June SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to our Stamp of the 
Month Blog Hop!  

We will be featuring June's SOTM, which is Hello Foxy, a set of 11 stamps.  If you have come here from Melinda's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog

This month we have approximately 23 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

I was inspired by the artwork featured in the catalog for this Stamp Set.  For this card I started with the watercolor paper found in the Whimsy Fundamentals Collection and used the Circle Thin Cuts to cut the center out.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the cardbase in the center of the circle.  Then using Black Memento Ink I stamped the wreath and used watercolor paints to paint the flowers and leaves.  Now I enjoy fussy cutting, but it's not for everyone, so if you don't have the patience to do it, don't. I fussy cut the entire wreath out, and then using the Bonding Memories Glue I adhered it to the card.  I haven't decided if I need to add any embellishments, but I do like it as is......what is your opinion?

Now "Hop" on over to Brenda's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the June SOTM is only available until 30th!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!

  1. very pretty card! I like it! I appreciate the inspiration as I won this stamp and already have it!


  2. Very pretty. I had your dilemma, but I didn't want to add gems that might pull attention from the focal, so I added Liquid Glass to the flower centers - but I didn't re-take a photo to show it off. :-) Maybe that helps you?

  3. Cute and simple! Doesnt need embellishments!

  4. Great card! Love the simplicity.

  5. Pretty card. I enjoy fussy cutting, too. I find it relaxing.
    As to whether or not to add anything else, I'm not the best at knowing when to stop. LOL However, I'd probably use the clear shimmer pen to add a touch of shimmer to the centers. But I have a very hard time not adding something glittery to my artwork. Either way though, it's still a pretty card.

  6. I love your card Michelle! ...and I can always appreciate some good fussy cutting like yours! ;)


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
