CTMH Stamp-of-the-Month Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  Happy Easter, again.  I hope you're having a wonderful weekend with family like we are.  If you came from Mary's blog, you're on the right track.  If this is your first stop, then just keep hopping until you get back here and you will have feasted your eyes on every bit of loveliness the CTMH consultants have created for your inspiration.

The stamp set we're spotlighting this month is called My Sunshine and as soon as I saw it, I fell in love!


Isn't it adorable?  Those red lines around some of the images mean they can be cut on Cricut, with our Artiste cartridge.  Here is my project:


If it looks familiar, it's because I just used this same frame for an Easter project.  I just swapped out all the bits and created this fun summery frame.  To stamp the balloon, I used sponge daubers to ink up the image with Lagoon, Sunset and Honey ink.  The sun is stamped with Honey as well, the centre being done with a second generation technique.  The sentiment is in Black Archival ink.  The balloon was cut from Lagoon cardstock at the suggested size, 2 3/4".  Then I cut it again from White Daisy, at 2 1/2" and stamped it so there would be no white edge.  I used Lagoon, Black and White Daisy cardstock.  Here's a close up of all the layers:


Now, it's time to hop on over to Traci's blog and discover another way to use this stamp set.  I'd love to see what you create with this set over the month.  

Happy Creating!
