Welcome to the February SOTM blog hop! This month we have almost 70 consultants sharing their fabulous artwork with you! You should have arrived from Katy’s blog. if you started here, great! It’s a big circle, and you can continue on through until you have gotten to everyone! If you happen to get lost along the way, Melinda has the list posted here for you. Now, let’s get started, shall we?
I started with a simple CAS card, but I couldn’t get it to look how I imagined it. So, I started going another direction, and then I ended up here! I really like how this turned out!
This card is still somewhat simple. I uses few supplies! There are three ink colors (Chocolate, Cashmere, and Desert Sand), and only 2 card bases used. I repurposed the first one that didn’t turn out how I liked, by using the stamps for the 4 squares, and the back side for the strip that is behind them.
I inked the edges of the squares and the band behind in cashmere ink that was directly from the pad. This gives a nice border, but there is no matting involved. I ended up cutting the sentiment apart, initially to make it 2 lines, but then I decided that I liked just the hello part!
This fun mono-chromatic card turned out quite nicely, I think!
Remember, the Stamp of the month is only available during that month, so you will want to get it before it’s gone! Just $5 with a qualifying order!
Thank you so much for stopping by! Next up is another Michelle! She’s sweet, and her project is too! Go check out her blog, and all the rest as well!
I hope you have a crafty day!
