Good Morning Stamping Friends!!! I am super excited to share this weeks project with you for the HSS Monochromatic Challenge Theme. I had an idea for some time now for a project like this and thought that this challenge would be a great time to make them and showcase them for you all! So lets see what I have...
I have been meaning for sometime to put together a pack of different cards. Some for Birthday, some for Thank Yous, some for Christmas, some for any occasion... I was looking for a layout that would be easy to reproduce and mass-produce at the same time. I am putting together a gift basket of these cards (all kinds) for my kids principles to hopefully get them more familiar with what I do and to hopefully allow me to offer classes to their teachers... so we will see. :-)
Here is the DAFFODIL DELIGHT card, I textured the back ground card stock with my texture plates and my Big Shot. Then wrapped my sentiment with some 1/4" grosgrain ribbon and added a Fifth Ave. Floral image finished off with a coordinating button.
I love this sentiment set, it has 4 different themes and I love the different fonts on them, they are such a great focal piece for any card! I used water color paper for my flower. I stamped the flower with Black Staz-On ink and then went over the entire flower with my aqua pen to get the paper wet. I took my So Saffron Marker and laid down a base color and then took my Daffodil Delight Marker and came in to add shading and depth. After the two colors we on I took my blender pen and pulled them together to fade into one another.
This cute card showcases the Birthday Wish card where I used a gift instead of the floral image. I used my triple layer floral punch to make the bow on top of the gift, super easy and I plan on doing a tutorial on that soon...
Check out that bow, yeah it's pretty perfect! ;-) Want to see how to make them too, check out my tutorial HERE - it is seriously easy!!!
I used VersaMark Ink and my brayer on the textured piece of this card, I know it is hard to see the water mark effect on this pic, sorry.
I layered some going gray card stock on this card for some subtle contrast and used my scallop edge punch. I love the little holes that it punches out. :-)
Here is the last one, and it is a Christmas themed card. I used White craft ink for the textured piece of card stock for this card. I also used my ticket corner punch for my textured piece as well, just in the corners. I used my ornament punch and some Christmas DSP for my focal image. Before I placed it on my card I layered it on a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and hand cut the piece mimicking the shape of the punch.
I just LOVE this font in this stamp set, don't you!!! I can't wait to finish up the rest of the cards for these sets. I have a slew of colors that I am going to make... when I finish them all I will show them to you, heck maybe I'll even make a quick video of them all for you. ;-)
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my fun project for this weeks HSS CHALLENGE, pop on over and submit your project. We love seeing what different ideas are shared!!! I can't wait to show you the rest of my fun projects and posts for this week. Have a great day and until next time~
