June Close To My Heart Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

It's that time again....the monthly STOM Blog Hop! In June, CTMH will be featuring a My Acrylix Stamp Set called "Wonderful Friend." While the 9 stamps are perfect for Father's Day cards, they are also useful any time of the year. Check out my website for complete details on how you can purchase or even earn "Wonderful Friend" for free.

If your got here from Antoinette's blog, you are on the right track. For my first project, I wanted to show off that the set doesn't have to be used for Father's Day cards....I made a Treasure Box! I had a cigar shaped box that I covered with paper from the newly release paper packet called "Passages." I accented the project with Tulip ink and cardstock. I also used images from the set called Travel Postcard Series and Childhood Portrait.





I also made a traditional Father's Day card with the set. Forgive the picture, this is a picture from a Craft Fair a few weeks ago. The card is tucked away safely in someone else's home awaiting June 20th. :o)


This is a 6 x 6 inch card that I also featured papers from Passages. The tie was stamped in Brown Bag ink, cut out and popped up with 3D Foam Tape. The frame and Dad are two separate stamps. I love clear stamps! :o)

It's time to hop on over to Kimberly's blog and check out what she did with the June STOM. For now, Happy Crafting!

Love the treasure box!

So vintage! I love that script in the background, it looks like an old love letter or war letter. Very masculine in an elegant kind of way. Thanks for sharing!

Love the addition of Tulip to the Passages papers. The sentiment and hearts work perfectly together!
