June SOTM in Smokey plum and olive

Here is the last of the cards which I made using the June SOTM - I folded paper circles on 2 sides and then put 5 of them together to make the flower - I used smokey plum and olive as the colors for this card - I was really happy with the way it turned out - especially  the torn and rolled edge of the cocoa cardstock - Hope you like it too :O)

Hello everyone :O)

I thought I would post a little note to let you know that yet again I haven't fallen off the planet!  I have worked the last 20 days and evenings without a day off so things are just a little crazier than usual.

Leo started Marching Band today - so I took him to his 1st rehersal - I can't believe how time has flown by - it doesn't seem 2 minutes since Robyn was doing Marching band. So between Leo and then with ELliott taking up an instrument and will be doing MB too - I will have another 7 years of this - bring it on!!

I am still creating frantically for my teaching at our coporate event in Washington DC - 2 weeks tomorrow - aaghhhhh. Just when I think I have finished, I then decide to put another piece together just in case I don't have enough LOL

I have used a lot of liquid glass in the last few days - it makes such a fabulous adhesive - for attching buttons, ribbon, sealing the ends of hemp. The list is endless - I think it is my favorite product (this week anyway) so here is a question
What is YOUR favorite CTMH product???

June SOTM - Blue

Everyone who has seen this card really likes it - it is only small but very effective - Indian corn blue cardstock and ink and desert sand cardstock heavily diestressed with the same colored ink. I used the piercing tool and mat to make the holes and then threaded natural hemp through. I added the same colored hemp through the natural buttons.
Hope you like it :O)

June SOTM - Pink and Black

Hi everyone - I am so sorry I have not posted anything for a week or so -I have been more stupidly busy than usual. You all know I am teaching at our annual Convention in Washington DC so I have been busy preparing artwork to show at convention.  It is taking rather more time than I anticipated - well that is to be expected when I took a weeks vacation half way through to go to Europe LOL :O)

Anyway here is a card which I made with the June stamp of the month which everyone tells me is for boys. Not so! I used bubblegum and black and even stamped the argyle stamp onto one of the flowers. I used the new glitter glue on the spots on the present and I love how it turned out - very girly :O)
Hope you like it too :O)

June Stamp of the month card

I absolutely love this stamp of the month - it is very much my style and I think the images are great. Perfect for any man in your life, Dad, brother, Uncle, husband. I used olive cardstock with New England Ivy ink to give a good contrast. Then added black and desert sand inks and heat embossed the clock in silver, I am thrilled the way this turned out - hope you like it too :O)
