Thanks for joining the Sparkle N Sprinkle Monochromatic blog hop.If you have arrived here from April's blog then you are in the correct spot.If you haven't and you want to be eligible for prizes, then please start at the beginning at the Sparkle N Sprinkle blog to be eligible for some fabulous prizes.
Our theme for this blog hop is monochromatic and I am so excited to do a monochromatic card because I hardly ever do them. I guess I really never think of a card in all one color family. Each and every time I see one done that way, I just love the look and the outcome. So the first card I chose to do in the monochromatic theme is in the green family.
When I designed this card I decided to punch (or you can cut) 1 1/8" squares. I stamped 3 of them using the brocade stamp in set 398. I also stamped 2 more on the 1 1/8" squares using the small swirl butterfly in set 437. And last, I stamped the verse ( in set 437) onto one more 1 1/8"square. I stamped and glittered the butterfly and fussy cut it out. For the complete instructions to make this card, click here.
You know, summer will be here before we know it so I used stamps that are in a beach theme. This next card showcases some of the Ocean Treasures stamps in set 404 using a beautiful blue card stock. I decided to use embossing powder on the sea grass and I used the poolside ep (ep393) and was really pleased with the way it turned out. I cut squares and used a corner rounder on opposite corners to add a different look to the squares. That twine adds an additional element to the card, too.Click here for more info on this card.
