CTMH June Blog Hop Time!

Another month has passed so that means it's Blog Hop time again!  This month, CTMH features a very usable set called Jubilation.  It contains 24 stamps covering a wide variety of Holidays and Celebrations.  Several of the stamps are just perfect when used with the 1 1/4 inch punch!

If you've arrived here from LeAnne's Blog, you're on the right track.  I wanted to come up with something "fun" so I altered an "Iris" brand card organizer.

The mat card stock is Olive and Outdoor Denim and the pattern paper is from Lucky.  I used Irresitables sponged in Sunset for the word "Cards" and the flourishes.  The leaf was sponged in Olive.  What is fun about this set is look closely at the 3D flower.  The petals are one of the stamps.  I merely stamped it 3 times, cut it out and poked a brad through the center.  :o)

I always make a card for these blog hops so here it is...

The card is also made using the reverse side of a piece from "Lucky."  The base is Colonial White and the torn piece is Outdoor Denim that has been scored.  To make the mat for the snowflake, I punched 5 scallop circles using the CTMH 2 inch scallop punch.  I sponged the edges, glued them together and then glued the stamped snowflake that was punched out with the 1 1/4 punch.

It's time to head off to Judy's Blog to see what she's done with the great stamp.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
