Hello and welcome to my Crafty Wednesday - June Challenge right here on my
blog! Hard to believe it's already June!! Thank you all for joining in last month, there were many
wonderful creations and as always you can see my top picks at the end of this
This Month's Theme:
For the month of June I selected the theme of ...................
Clean and Simple
(or Anything Handmade Goes)
Remember, the themes are now optional and you may share anything handmade (it does not have to be a card), old
or new and any entry will be considered as a top pick.
This post may include some affiliate links, meaning I may earn a small commission if you purchase something through the links. As always, this is at no cost to you. Thank you so much for supporting this blog!
And here is my card!
Both stamps I used here are very old and sadly retired but occasionally can be found on
eBay or Etsy.
Message from Above by Penny Black and Sentiment from a Stamp set by
Flourishes (this company is no longer in business).
The sentiment from an old Flourishes stamp set (which I had purchased a couple
of years ago from eBay) has been stamped using Versafine Onyx ink
I did stamp the image again onto the card front to include the small flower which I hadn't fussy cut. Since this is a wood mounted
stamp, I had to use an old
tool to ensure correct
alignment. I can't believe I actually found this tool as it's been many
years since I last used it!!
I didn't really plan on adding a ribbon, but I found it on my desk already tied in a bow as I was finishing the card, so I added it.
I'm linking up here:
Last Month's Top Picks:
I will continue to add my favorites to the dedicated Pinterest board, but going forward I will once again showcase the top pick's creations
with links to their individual blogs, which will be removed at the start
of each new month's challenge to remain in compliance with GDPR.
Choosing favorites is never easy but something that needs to be done and
here are my top picks in the order of entry.
