Fundamentals Creative Collection Blog Hop



Welcome to a special blog hop from the Stamp of the Month Consultants! This hop features the Fundamentals Creative Collections found in the Close To My Heart Annual Inspirations Book. There is an incredible amount of variety and possibilities with these paper packs! There are coordinating Compliments and ribbons, too! See the links at the end of my post for a peek at the paper packs!

Now let's get busy! If you've come from Tracey Pierce's blog you're on the right path. It's one big circle so just keep clicking on the links in each post. It's that easy!

For this hop I decided to go with the Whimsy paper pack. I haven't used this pack for a while so it was calling to me. Here I'm showing you two ways of using the papers. You can use the patterns in a monochromatic way like I did in the first card. The second card shows a mix of colors from the same pack. The design is from a Mojo Monday pattern featured last month. I varied the cards a tiny bit with embellishments and techniques. Card 1 has ink distressed edges on the cardstock and I colored the Clear Sparkles with a marker so they matched the theme. Card 2 has Edge distressed cardstock on the sentiment layer. I did a bit of ink splatter on the background with a water brush and ink from the stamp pad lids. The third photo shows this a little better.
