Life Is Tweet: June SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop.  If you are joining me from {Karen Fullam's blog, Enriching Memories}  , you are on the right path.

This is a CUTE stamp set and I could not wait to get to play with it!

I have long admired artwork that uses rainbow color schemes.  I created a few variations on that theme with this months Stamp Of The Month. I used the eyelet border stamp on all three creations.  For this first card I stamped mirror images of the border in a progession of rainbow colors onto White Daisy card stock.




The embellishments I added are from my stash, some are CTMH some not.  I am pleased with the way this card came out.

For my second creation I used a masking technique.  I cut Flower 5 at 2.25 inches with my Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge.  I secured the flower to White Daisy Card stock and stamped in ROYGBP pattern.  When finished, I removed the flower cut and stamped the Life is Tweet sentiment in the negative space.  I added a bit of Tulip card stock and layered it all on a treat bag cut from Art Philosophy.
Last but not least, I could not NOT use the stamped flower that I had removed from the project above. I HAD to use it.  So, I made a simple 3x3 card.  I cut the center circle from the "Life is Tweet" sentiment stamped in tulip on White Daisy and layered it on to my stamped flower. The stamped flower is mounted on a 2.25 x 2.75 Indian Corn Blue Card stock and then on to the 3x3 white daisy card.

Color My Heart: Dare #1

Fellow Close To My Heart consultant Sarah Stone has started Color My Heart,  a color dare blog.  I am excited to participate.   Color Dare #1 is to use Amethyst, Petal and/or Smokey Plum  on a project.  I chose to create a card.

Most of color on this monochromatic card is Smokey Plum.   I stamped my sentiment Butterfly (A1120)  in Petal on White Daisy card stock and then mounted it to petal card stock.  I stamped the sentiment again in Smokey Plum, so I could cut the butterfly out and pop dotted it for depth.  For the ribbon detail, I dyed CTMH's color ready seam binding with Smokey Plum re-inker.


 Here is a close up side view of the card...
Thank you Sarah for the Color Dare!

Life Is Tweet: Paper Piece

So, this is a bit of a sneak peek of the June Stamp of the Month.  When I first saw this stamp set I thought the sentiment looked like a sun.  That is where this card began.


I used scrap paper from several retired CTMH kits to paper piece this scene together.   The pink birdie is from the current Lucy Paper Kit.  A quick run in the sewing machine and I was a happy camper :)
