Stamp of the Month Blog Hop - June: Kaboom!


Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month we’re featuring the June set Kaboom!, a set of 16 stamps. 

If you have come here from Gina Brandstetter’s blog, you’re in the right place! There are more than 50 independent Close to My Heart consultants participating. Click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move through the Hop.

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!

My first instinct when looking at this stamp set is to do something for the 4th of July; however, since I used the Jubilee papers for last month’s Hop, I really wanted to do something else.

I started thinking about different color combinations I could use and was just going to use cardstock when I remembered the Paper Fundamentals. Ah-ha! The black would be perfect! Add in some Cranberry and Honey and I had just what I was looking for.

I stamped the TNT on a piece of scrap and then cut it out, removing the fuse from the end. I replaced that with a piece of frayed twine for a fun bit of texture.

Here is what I used. All products are Close to My Heart:

S1406 Kaboom! stamp set
Z1939 Paper Fundamentals Basics Assortment
1385 White Daisy cardstock
1272 Cranberry cardstock
X5668 Honey cardstock
44751 Archival Black Exclusive Inks stamp pad
Z2116 Cranberry Exclusive Inks stamp pad
Z2162 Honey Exclusive Inks stamp pad
Z1751 Baker’s Twine Harvest Assortment
Z1151 3-D Foam Tape
