A couple of cards for the weekend...

I wanted to show you that you can use the June Stamp of the Month in a different way.

Here, two of the vases in the set make up the lamp.

Colors: Dutch Blue, Olive, Goldrush
Stamps: With Love, Treasures of the Heart
Papers: Rustic Outdoors

For this card, I created the crumpled flowers by cutting three different sizes of each flower on my Cricut machine (George cartridge). In this case, I cut 1 1/2", 2" and 2 1/2" flowers. Spritz each layer with water and crumple. Uncrumple the flower very gently and repeat with 2nd and 3rd layers. Stack on top of each other and crumple them until you get the desired effect. Use a brad to hold the layers together.

Colors: Watermelon, Ocean and Hydrangea
Stamps: With Love
Papers: Whoops A Daisy paper pack (new from the summer catty!)
Accessories: White Daisy Bigger Brads
