June Blog Hop

Welcome to the
JUNE Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
You should have hopped on over from the blog of Chris Shouse. Don't you just love all these ideas! Well here's another one for you to try out!

As you can see, there are a variety of really great images in this set. I used the tie to create a funky background using Sweet Leaf and Twilight inks. LOVE that color combo! You know, as I look at it, I think with a bit of trimming that tie could look like a canoe paddle, too! I'll have to give that one a try! But I digress. After creating the background I stamped the frame and message, a strip of the argyle and a single argyle. These pieces are layered with black cardstock to make the colors POP! It's hard to tell in the photo, but I also added a bit of our new Glitz Glitter Glue in Stardust on the cross lines in the argyle. You NEED to try our Glitz Glitter Glue! It's so easy and adds such a nice accent to just about anything! No fuss, no muss!
