August Stamp of the Month: Framed

Hi everyone!  Welcome to our August Stamp of the Month blog hop.

If you arrived here from Jennifer Dykstra's blog, you're on the right track.  If you get lost along the way, you can go here to see a complete list of hoppers.
After my success with the last sunburst card project, I decided to try one a bit more advanced.  I won't lie to you:  it was a bit frustrating at first, but I'm SO happy with how it turned out!

I'm so pleased to introduce to you, not only the August Stamp of the Month, but our newest paper pack, Zoe, and our brand-spankin' new Close to My Heart Cricut Cartridge: Artistry which coordinates with this month's Stamp of the Month.

The cuts for this month's stamp of the month are as follows:
Tabbed rectangle at top:  1.75" p.32
Middle diamond:  2" p.13
Bottom label:  1.25" p.11

I'll be posting a tutorial on this sunburst technique next week, so be sure to follow my blog either by email or bloglovin' so you don't miss it!

Your shopping list for this project:

Now, hop on over to Haley Dyer's blog to see what she's created for you!
