I came across this Stamp Something blog today and thought it would be fun to do a monochromatic card, which I love. One color, in various shades, is a no-brainer to me! I just purchased some Fall Flowers DP, so I picked out a subtle Groovy Guava stripe and decided to use that Pick a Petal I just had to have, and haven't inked up in months!
The petals are stamped & cut out, as is the center. I stamped a little element from Little Pieces (retiring, boo hoo) and added that in the center with a dimensional. I took the scoring blade on my personal cutter and added some scorelines above & below the sentiment.....it is hard to see in this picture, but it complements the lines in the designer paper. The little circles are from All in a Row (retiring, again boo hoo), and were lined up using a Stamp-a-ma-Jig, stamped in White Craft ink, then filled in with our white gel pen. I also added white stitch lines around the petals with the same pen. Finally, I added a little flowery squiggle on the end of the "wish big", which was stamped in Pumpkin Pie.
My cyber-friend Dana sent me some really cool Cuttlebug "presents". I had just gotten these neat glossy notecards in the Dollar Bin at Mike's, so I just embossed a birthday sentiment from Hugs & Wishes in White Craft ink & White Embossing Powder, then added some color to the "bow" with markers that matched the stripes, then adhered the "present" to my card! Sweet! Thanks again, Dana!
Finally, I just came across this blog, Stamping and Stuff, and this sweet creative designer is offering FREE digital paper for scrapping and cardmaking. Plus it comes in SU colors! Be sure to check it out and give her a big cyber thank you!
Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
