June Stamp of the Month Blog Hop

Welcome to our CTMH Australasian blog hop if you arrived here from Vandra's Virtual Craftroom  you are in the right place. If you arrived here by chance, I am very happy to see you and to continue the hop click on the link at the end of the post to see more great ideas.

This stamp set, "A Bushel & Peck" S1806  is simply the cutest, the images and sentiments are just gorgeous. This stamp set can be yours for just $7.50 with a qualifying order or for $27.00 on it's own.

This is a Shadow Box card and I love how simple it is to make yet it looks amazing. You use 2 pieces of cardstock 4.25" x 5.5" the usual size of a card. The front is Crystal Blue and the back is White Daisy. Both pieces of cardstock are scored at 1/2" and 1" from both edges. There is a great tutorial here  which shows you how to make it.

You need to mark the circle so you know where to place your sentiment and other items on the inside. I stamped the front with the leaf spray image in Crystal Blue ink and I think it looks really nice. After fussy cutting the stamped images I adhered them with a double layer of foam tape. Use a strong adhesive to glue the front and back of the card. This card will lie flat to allow you to mail it and it will stand up easily without any aids to be  displayed. It will fit in a standard envelope.

It's lovely looking back on photos from years ago and seeing the changes in the children in my family. These two lovely young girls are so special to me and I do really love them "a bushel and a peck" and even more. These little girl images worked so well with this layout.
