June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

Thank you for stopping by to enjoy our June Stamp of the Month
Blog Hop featuring this month's SOTM: 
  A Flowering Bunch S1306 
If you've just arrived here from ANGEL'S BLOG,
then you are on the correct path.

Standard-size card #1. Colors I used include Black Archival (44751) and Smokey Plum ink pads with Creme Brulee, Olive, and Smokey Plum alcohol ink markers. Papers I used include Black, Colonial White, and Smokey Plum Cardstocks with a B&T duos from the Chantilly paper pack (X7163B). The lace border image I stamped through the middle of the background is from a retired stamp set...Simple Memories D1472...sponge-daubed with Smokey Plum ink around the edges.

Standard-size card #2. Colors I used include a Black Archival ink pad (44751) with Indian Corn Blue, Olive, and Smokey Plum alcohol ink markers. Papers I used include Colonial White, Creme Brulee, and Olive Cardstocks. Simple design, but so fun to stamp and color-in with our markers!
Finally, here's a view of all of the images included in this Stamp Set:
(and remember, the large flowers and leaves that are outlined are the ones that have
a corresponding shape that can be cut using the Cricut Artiste cartridge!)
