June SOTM Blog Hop - A Bushel & a Peck

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

We will be featuring June's SOTM, which is A Bushel & A Peck, a set of 15 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 20 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 have recently fallen in love with making easel cards.  They are actually very easy to create.  I was hoping to create a video to show just how easy, but time crept away from me.  I used a few different images from the stamp set to create dimension on this card.  The images are very clean and easy to color with the Shinhan Touch Markers, and I used various colors to finish my images.  I also love to doodle, and though that completed the card nicely.

This next image shows the card open, and I carried the layers of mats into the inside of the card as well as the doodling.

The final image I'm sharing shows a close up of how to create dimension by layering images and using some 3D Foam Tape to pop the top layer.

The card base is Kraft Cardstock.  The layers of mats is Cranberry and Canary. I used Memento Black Ink to stamp my images so that I could color with the alcohol markers without bleeding.

Now "Hop" on over to Melissa'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 November SOTM is only available until November 30th!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount!
