Welcome to the August Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! You will be amazed and inspired with all the wonderful artwork from this group of Close To My Heart Consultants. If you've come from Katy Donaldson's blog you're on the right track. Enjoy!
D1424 Something Splendid is only available during the month of August. This is a stamp set you'll use over and over again! Here are several different looks all from this one set!
This card features the Faux Velvet technique (from the Technique Junkies newsletter) in the background. I also made my own "glimmer mist" with our Close To My Heart reinkers, Create-a-Shade Pearl Paint and some rubbing alcohol. Colors are Juniper, Creme Brulee and Petal.
I love the look of this card, too. B&T is from the Passages paper kit paired with Cocoa and Colonial White cardstock. Barn Red ink was used for the flower. Dry embossed lines on the Colonial White cs add some subtle detail.
D1412 Noted Background. The B&T strip of paper is from the Twitterpated kit and is layered on a piece of Chocolate cs. Inks used are Sorbet, Sweet Leaf and Chocolate. It's hard to see, but there is a touch of Liquid Glass on the center of each flower. Across the B&T layer is a piece of the Chocolate ribbon with the white dash. Just pull on the white part and the ribbon gathers up for a great look on cards and layouts!
