Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!
We will be featuring February Stamp of the Month, which is Sunny Thoughts. If you have come here from Danielle's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around. (If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.)
This month we have 27 talented Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one. Leave a comment, if you like what you see. We love to get your feedback. Here we go!
This month's stamp exudes spring. It's been pretty cold & dreary here lately, so I couldn't wait to bring a little sunshine in my craft room as I designed these cards. I decided to try a monochromatic card this month; I've seen many consultants do it & think it looks fabulous! But never tried it myself. I used a gate fold card, which worked really well with my design & is very easy.
You simply cut a piece of cardstock 4 1/4 x 8 1/2. And then score it at 2 1/8 & 6 3/8. You can find the full tutorial here.
I chose bright & vibrant colors from the Adventure palette; Pansy, Pacifica & Raspberry. I used the versatile Basics Fundamentals paper for the backgrounds. The final touches were a little bit of Silver Glitter paper & Clear Sparkles to add just the right amount of bling. I can't wait to send these sunny birthday greetings out!
