June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop--A Flowering Bunch

Hope you are having fun on your blog hop!  You have arrived from Tamra Pope's Blog  and seen some gorgeous artwork along the way.  Look for the link to your next blog spot at the bottom of my post
 I created an extra card for this month's Stamp of the Month class. Techniques are:
Tulip and Dress cards---Sponge the B&T paper with Buttercup ink to create a soft look and work with the Cricut Artiste cutouts
Flower Bunch and Thanks a Bunch cards--coloring with our Alcohol Markers Watercolor pencils.
Thanks a Bunch card--using the negative cutout from the Artiste flower to sponge Twilight color on the card and then stamp the flower image over it.
Please note several of the images in this stamp set can be cut with our Cricut Artiste cartridge.  Just cut several extra shapes and you will have them ready to make a quick card.  I will confess I learned to use the "Flip" button on my Cricut since the two leaves are different directions.  A simple thing but it is always good to keep discovering new things about our great Close To My Heart products!
Now keep hopping on over to Karen Fullam's Blog to see more fantastic artwork.
