Take 2 - June 2021 Stamp of the Month (SOTM)

Here's my 2nd set of cards I created using the June SOTM S2106 Outdoor Borders.  This set is so much fun to play with.  This time I used some leftover papers, stickers, stamps and PML cards from the retired set Summer Vibes.  Search for Summer Vibes on my Shopping site, and there maybe some items still available in limited quantities.

Below are my 3 cards I made using the Outdoor Borders, with more cheery, bright colors.  I have to make this post short, as I need to get to an appointment, but please let me know if you have any questions about the products used, I am here to help.

Used a PML card, trimmed to size, paper and a watermelon sticker

PML card used with a Popsicle sticker popped up

Zip strip, sentiment and watermelon stamps, colored with my Tri Blend markers

Hope you enjoyed my cards.  Do you have a favorite one?  Let me know in the comments.

Have a great day and as always, thanks for coming by,

June 2021 Stamp of the Month (SOTM)

 There is still is 2 more weeks that you can place a qualifying order and get the June SOTM for $5.00, don't miss out!  The set is called Outdoor Borders S2106, and there are 9 outdoor, summer borders you can use on cards, or your scrapbook pages.  You can view the details HERE

How fun is this set?  Need some inspiration?  Check out my cards below that I created using the June SOTM, along with the stamp and thin cut set D2019 Take a Hike I made these 3 cards using cardstock and inks in the following colors:  Blue Belle, Mink, Black, Toffee.  The patterned paper is from our current May-June Mix-In paper pack item # X9028 You can also see that these stamps can be used to make great card backgrounds. To finish the cards I colored the images using my Tri Blend Markers, wooden shades, which I rubbed them in toffee ink to color them, and some gold sequins, sparkles and mink twine.

All 3 cards together, and you can take a closer look below of each one

You can view the products on my shopping site, and please let me know if I can answer any questions.

Did you like the cards that I shared?  Which is your favorite? Leave me a comment and let me know.

I am glad you stopped by today - I will be back later this week to share 3 more cards using some more of these borders.

Craft Roulette #65

Another good spin of the wheel over at CraftRoulette.live this past Friday. Having a blast playing along every Friday, you never know what will come up on the spin, but boy is it challenging.  I love digging through my stamps, papers and supplies, trying to figure out an idea, one that will meet all the parameters for the week.

Here's the spin from Friday - June 11, 2021

Project: card with patterned paper

Colors: Any 4 colors

Element: A Smile or Smiles

Random: Tone on Tone



For my patterned paper I used a floral pattern and black/white strip found in Perfect Match paper packet, limited quantity still available HERE 

Colors were Pink, Blue, Light green and Red for my 4 colors, the Close to My Heart cardstock colors are as follows: Ballerina, Carolina, Mint and Candy Apple, find all paper HERE

For my Smile, I chose to use a sentiment from a retired stamp set S2002 Cherishing Her, an older Stamp of the Month (STOM) from February 2020

And for my Tone on Tone, I used my Flamingo Shimmer brush to splatter the background on the Ballerina cardstock. Check out all the Shimmer Brush colors we carry HERE

To finish my card, I added 2 Candy Apple red Stitched Hearts (thin cut die) added a mint ink splatter image behind the sentiment, cut this out with Stitched Brackets (thin cuts die), then last of all, some black dots. 

Check out our Thin Cuts selection, these dies match perfectly with many of Close to My Heart stamp images.

I think I nailed it, meeting all the parameters for the challenge, and making a pretty fun card too! Easy card pattern, and I was able to use up some scraps from my stash as well.  

What do you think of my card? Please leave a comment.

Thank you for stopping by today
