June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - A Bushel and a Peck



Close To My Heart 

June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop



Welcome to our June stamp of the month blog hop.  A blog hop is just one big loop of fun, creative ideas. Glad you could join us today.  If you are coming from Alayne's blog you're on the right path. If you are starting here, just look for the link to Vickie's blog at the end of my post.  Each blog you visit will feature a link to continue following the hop.   If you get disconnected somewhere along the way, you can find a complete list of blog hop participants here.

This month's stamp set, A Bushel and a Peck, features 15 stamps and is available only through the month of June.  You can purchase this set for $17.95, or get it for only $5 with a qualifying order of $50 (US) through your Close To My Heart consultant.



My project is a scrapbook page using the stamp of the month along with 
papers from the Beautiful Friendship paper pack.  You might have guessed that 
this layout is earmarked for pictures of my little blondie granddaughter.



Let's take a little closer look.


The images were stamped with black Momento ink and then colored in with the following ShinHan Touch Twin markers: Marine Blue, Cerulean Blue, Barely Beige, Carmine, Light Orange, Clay, Bronze, Golden Yellow, Leaf Green, and Sap Green.

Here's a close-up look at some of the stamping.

The lemon slices were stamped with canary ink and shaded with
ShinHan markers.



The straw was stamped with Pixie ink and shaded with the Tender Pink ShinHan  marker.  I slit the rim of the jar at the top line and the bottom line, and then again at the level of the lemonade.  I shaded the lemonade with yellow markers listed below and then stamped the lemon slices with Canary ink on top of the coloring.

CTMH supplies used  
Cardstock: White Daisy, Pixie, Canary, Glacier
Paper:  Whimsy Fundamentals paper collectionPixie circle print, Canary, Pixie, and Glacier prints
