Kaboom! The June Stamp of the Month

Kaboom and here we are starting the 6th month of 2014!  In blog-hop-land it also means that I get to introduce you to the next stamp of the month from Close to My Heart!  This month I’m joining 50 Close to My Heart consultants to showcase art from the June Stamp of the month.  From my blog you’ll hop through in a big loop and in the end you’ll end up right back here!
If you’re already on the hop, you should be coming from Shelia's blog.  If not, just hop on through the whole hop and you’ll find her as you complete the circle.  If you get lost along the way hop on over to Melinda’s blog for the MASTER BLOG HOP LIST.
Now for some fun! This set really is called KABOOM!  It features 14 stamps including 4 that match up with shapes on the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. 
Let's Celebrate, You're the Bomb, Pow, Kaboom, What a blast, Party, Independence Day, Fourth of July CTMH, SU
I grabbed this set a week ago to whip up this card below. 
You're the Bomb Swing Card

It was super fast to put together if you’re not afraid of a little background stamping. 
The card base is from Artiste.  It’s a swing card and can be found under the “S” key of the handbook.  Clever, eh?  There’s a few of these little tricks on this cartridge.  How about Movies & Mustache?  Where could we find them?  Psst… look on the M button!  I digress… but you should take a peek!
I used Crystal Blue cardstock along with scraps of Buttercup yellow patterned paper from Babycakes paper pack & the Lagoon striped from the Skylark papers for the dove-tailed banners.  A bit of Ruby Washi tape added some fun and tied the elements together.
I fussy cut the TNT sticks and popped them up with 3D tape.  I stamped the same image below so I would have perfect glowing TNT fuses.

If there’s ever been a card that has really been enhanced by sparkles, this is it!  Those fireworks just glow!  

I designed this as a Father’s Day card for my Fun & Fab ladies on the 4th Friday workshop.  I think you’ll understand that I like patterns and mnemonics.  (They really help me and my Fabulous ladies).  I may make a couple extra and send them as thank you cards.  
That’s all I have for you tonight.  I will have more posts up this month using these stamps so please hop on back!  For now, please hop on over to Judy's Blog check out her project.

Here's a list of everyone in the blog hop this month.

  1. I love the Artiste swing cards. Makes short work of getting a fun interactive card done. Great choice and fun card.

  2. Great swing card! ....easy and quick using scraps of supplies!

  3. Another fantastic creation! Love that we have these cuts available at mere pushes of buttons on our cricut. Great work.

  4. I love that you turned it into a father's day card!!

  5. Amazing...using this as a Father's Day card!! Thanks for helping us "think outside the box"! :)
