Kaboom (June SOTM Blog Hop)

Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the Kaboom stamp set.  Whether you are creating a scrapbook layout of your Fourth of July memories or creating a fun card for someone, you have a great assortment of stamps in this set.   See all the images in the picture at the bottom of this post.    

If you have come here from Melinda's If You Bling It blog, you are on the right path!  Blog 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!  

Red, black, and white may not be traditional Independence Day colors, but they work great for a glittery card.  Using a sentiment and a rocket image from Kaboom along with a background using the Dot Embossing Folder, this card is "ready for take off" to someone special.  A bit of glitz was added using some black Glitter Paper along with Silver, Red, and Black Shimmer Trim.  The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge was used to cut the "burst" shape for the sentiment.  Remember, any stamp image shown with a red outline has a corresponding shape which can be cut using one of the exclusive CTMH Cricut cartridges.     

Place a $50 minimum order this month (June 2014) and you are eligible to purchase the Kaboom stamp set for only $5.  

Now "Hop" on over to 'Crafty Lalia' to see her work.  Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting inspiration and other fun ideas.  

If you get lost along the way, the complete list of participants is available on Melinda's 'If You Bling It' blog.  

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

    1. Thanks, Susan. Glitter paper is so great to work with!

  2. I am amazed in how great this card looks in my favorite combo of black, red and white! You should see my closet! Love it!

    1. Thank you, Adeline. Wanted a slightly non-traditional color combo so it wasn't necessarily a Fourth of July card.

  3. Love the colour combination. It pops at you! Kaboom!

    1. Thanks, Michelle. Thought it would work for a birthday card.


Thanks for your comments! It is always nice to hear some feedback. :)
