June SOTM Blog Hop: Life is Tweet


Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring June's SOTM, which is Life is Tweet, a set of 15 stamps.  If you have come here from Jill's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants here.



This month we have 55 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 is the Life is Tweet stamp set (and one of my favorites) and the projects that I created for the blog hop.



Here is the paper pocket that I created using the Stella paper pack and Life is Tweet.
I got the idea and directions on how to make the pocket from Becky Robert at Inking Idaho and can be found in her 12 Days of Christmas 2011 Edition Tutorials on her sidebar.



I took two pictures so that you could clearly see the two pockets.  I added a Studio J gift card and my business card to the pockets, but this would also be perfect for a gift card and mini candy bar or treat.

Supplies used (all CTMH unless noted):

Life is Tweet (June SOTM)
Stella Paper Pack
Cocoa ink
Micro tip scissors
3D foam tape
Art Philosophy Cartridge (flower cut at 2.25")
Border Punch (SU...although you could use our corner rounder also)
adhesive
scoring tool
sponge dauber

And my second project is a simple card, inspired by the fantastic Deneen Treble at A Path of Paper for her Tip Top Tuesday Clean and Simple Cards.


Supplies used (all CTMH)

Life is Tweet (June SOTM)
Stella paper pack
Ruler
My Legacy markers

sponge dauber



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