June Stamp of the Month Art - 6

Art by Shannon Law

If spiders can be cute . . . . this is the way to do it! A black button with some waxy flax makes a great little eight-legged critter on the corner of this card. Partnered with stamp images from "Jubilation" - - it's a Happy Halloween!

June Stamp of the Month Art - 5

Art by Tina Dupin

These vertical lines create a wonderful contrast to the circular look of the stamped images on this card. They are created by embossing the paper and then sanding. That's what Close To My Heart's white-core cardstock can DO for ya!

Not too spooky . . . just a little! The little bat image and the teeny eyes come from June's Stamp of the Month set. The triangular arrangement of circles creates a great focal point.
