HSS Monochromatic Challenge #82

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~
