Both cards today feature June’s Stamp Of The Month, Kaboom!

Card #1

CTMH: June SOTM Kaboom

 I started by inking up the two smaller firework images in Lagoon Exclusive Ink™, Creme Brulee Exclusive Ink™, Juniper Exclusive Ink™, and Honey Exclusive Ink™  by using the rock ‘n roll technique on piece of White Daisy Cardstock. {If you’re not familiar with this technique-you stamp the image in the lighter color ink first and then roll the edges in a darker color ink. When you stamp the image it will appear to be two-tone} To keep the White Daisy Cardstock from blending in with the white card base, I used a Sponge Dauber and Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink™ around the edge of the cardstock

I used the Keyboard Uppercase Stamp Set in Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink™ for the happy birthday sentiment. I overlapped the letters slightly to give the appearance that the letters are connected, and I added a strips of 3D Foam Tape to have the sentiment literally pop off the card!! The little star is also from the June SOTM and is stamped in Creme Brulee Exclusive Ink™. For the finishing touch I added a couple Durables Triangle Studs.  {Card inspired by this card by Sweet Stamp Shop}

Card #2

CTMH: June SOTM Kaboom {inspired by Lisa Henke}

Starting with a white card base, I added a layer of Outdoor Denim Cardstock followed by another layer of White Daisy Cardstock. On the top layer of cardstock I used the Distressed Backgrounds Stamp Set in Champagne Exclusive Ink™ followed by another firework image from June’s SOTM in Sorbet Exclusive Ink™. The tag was cut in White Daisy Cardstock using the Art Philosophy Cricut® Cartridge. I again used a sponge dauber and Outdoor Denim Exclusive Ink™ around the edges of the tag for more definition. The sentiments come from two different stamp sets; the “congratulations” sentiment and the star are from the Casual Expressions Stamp Set and the “you’re amazing” is from the Cricut® Artiste Collection. To give the tag a little texture I used the Chevron Embossing Folder and tied a bow using the Harvest Baker’s Twine at the top of the tag. {card inspired by this card by Lisa Henke}

Tip: CTMH’s dry embossing folders are 5″x7″ and have a slit cut at the top of the folder making it easy to slide your cardstock through the folder which is what I did with this tag.
