June Stamp of the Month: A Flowering Bunch

June is a busy, busy month at Close to My Heart...a few great specials, a fabulous Stamp of the Month set and the event of the year, also known as Christmas in June...the CTMH Annual Convention! I'll be sharing more about the June specials and Convention in later posts, but for now let's focus on the fabulous Stamp of the Month set!

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month blog hop! If you've arrived here from my Canadian friend, Brae Montgomery's blog, you are on the right track., If this is your first stop, following along is simple...just click on the links at the bottom of each blog post. When you arrive back here you are sure to be inspired an ready to get creating! This month we have over 60 talented consultants participating - that's a whole lot of creativity heading your way!

The June Stamp of the Month, A Flowering Bunch is a unique set of 10 stamps including two sentiment stamps. The two large flowers and the leaves coordinate with Close to My Heart's exclusive Cricut Artiste cartridge!

I just adore the fresh and funky color combination of the new Claire papers...Sunset, Hollyhock, and Outdoor Denim - so fun! For this card,  drew my inspiration from a card by the amazingly talented Vicki Wizniuk. The flowers from the stamp set are random stamped in Outdoor Denim ink on Colonial White cardstock. The banners were cut with the Cricut and the Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon adds the finishing touch!

Remember, the June Stamp of the Month is only available through June 30th, so head on over to my website and order yours today. A Flowering Bunch is $17.95, or just $5 when you place a $50 order!
 Time to move along and see what Maria Myers has created to share with all of us! Thanks for joining sure to check back soon as I have even more fun artwork featuring the June Stamp of the Month to share.
