Stamp of the Month Blog Hop {Wonderful Friend}

It's time once again for our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring June's Stamp of the Month,
Wonderful Friend, Set of 9.


If you've come from {Amy's Blog}, you're on the right path. We have over 60 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This month, I had a little more time to play.  I love the layout done in the Idea Book for this stamp set, but wanted to use the Passages Level 2 Papers, as that is the kit I'm featuring this month.  So, I put my own little creative twist on the layout and this is what I came up with...


Pattern: Reflections - Main Frame - Quilt Blocks
Techniques: Direct-To-Paper, Heat Embossing, Generation Stamping

Here are a few close up shots of the details:

The watch was stamped in VersaMark on Cocoa Cardstock. I embossed it in Gold Embossing Powder. For the clock face, I used the Embossing Pen to color it in, then heat embossed in Clear Detail Powder.  After the image cooled, I trimmed it with our Microtip Scissors.


I cut apart the verse in the stamp set, then lined it up one one block and stamped it all around the outside edge of the main frame.  I used Pewter Brads to separate the verses.

The "tab" is the frame from the stamp set stamped in Cocoa Ink and trimmed.
I will add the date/year when I figure out which photos to add to this page.

I inked the edges of all the pieces with Cocoa ink, except for the Garden Green square, which was swiped with Brown Bag ink.  I took the ink pad and literally swiped it across my cardstock to get the effect.

Now "Hop" on over to {Carla's Blog} to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! The complete list of participants is here. Remember, the June SOTM is only available until June 30th! Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this stamp set at a discount or even free!


Until next time...
