June SOTM – Outdoor Borders Blog Hop

Welcome to the June Stamp of the Month blog hop!!

If you are coming here from WENDY KESSLER’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 15 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I knew I wanted to highlight these awesome borders. When I looked at this stamp set I saw two groupings jump out to me. I have been totally loving rainbow colors so that inspired one of my cards.

Here there are individually.

I went with most of the rainbow colors using the light side of Candy Apple, Nectarine, Canary, Green Apple, Bluebird, and Grape cardstock. I stamped tone on tone using the Outdoor Borders stamp set. Then using the Months of the Year – June for the sentiment and envelope. I also used the Stitched Bracket Thin Cuts. I added a couple of red dots from my stash.

For this card I used Avocado, Toffee, and Peacock cardstock and inks. I used the Stitched Fancy Bracket Thin Cuts for the sentiment. The sentiment and accents are from the Take a Hike stamp and thin cuts, I colored the backpack and water bottle details with my markers. The last detail was the Gold Glitter Gems.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of JUNE.
