June SOTM Blog Hop!!

Welcome! (If you have just arrived here from Shirley's blog, then you are on the right path!) Our June 2010 Stamp of the Month is D1422 Wonderful Friend. I really like this stamp set, so as you can clearly see here, I have already been using it A LOT!! Most of my creations this time feature the Passages Level 2 paper pack X7126B with Barn Red, Cocoa, and Garden Green inks (unless otherwise noted). Remember you can click on all of my photos to see the details up close if you want to!
My circle card (below) uses liquid glass to do the "cracked glass" technique! The pocket watch is first stamped with timber brown Staz-on ink to keep the image from running/bleeding when the wet liquid glass is added!
The cutting dimensions and directions how to create this easy standard size "double pocket card" (below) can be found on Splitcoast Stampers!
You may recognize this card (below) as the NEW title topper for my blog (up top) that I made for the H2H8 challenge and told you about in the previous blog post before this one!
And finally, this 4x4 criss-cross card features our Splendor Level 2 paper pack X714B (one of my absolute favorite new papers - I just LOVE this cheerful color combination! - Goldrush, Heavenly Blue, Moonstruck, and Topiary, and I added Cocoa too).I hope you feel inspired by my artwork
and if you'd like to see a photo tutorial on how to make the "Crescent Moon Paper Flower"
on the last card shown above, simply scroll down
to my blog post dated May 22nd!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Now, you can continue on with the hop by visiting Deb Young's Blog next!! Enjoy!
