Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we’re featuring the June  set A Flowering Bunch, a set of 10 stamps. If you have come here from Elizabeth Mindemann's blog, you’re in the right place! There are more than 50 independent Close to My Heart consultants sharing artwork made using the Stamp of the Month and other great Close to My Heart products. Hopping is simple to do – just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one.

The Blog Hop is a great big circle. Start here and work your way around. If you get lost along the way you’ll find a complete list of participating consultants here. You can use this list to pick up where you left off.

Off we go!

I love the style of this stamp set, like someone just sat down and started doodling. It's fun and playful and has so many possibilities. On the other hand, as much as I really like this set, I wasn't sure how I wanted to use it. I started out by placing the stamp set next to various papers and knew when I saw it with this pink pattern from the Chantilly paper pack that this was it.

The flower offered a great opportunity to use several different colors, as well as a chance to use up some of the buttons I have collected over the last few years. I found that the delicate lines of the flower needed some help in standing out from the background, so I layered each one with cardstock of the same color.
