Hopping Around The World

Hopping Around The World – My Favorite Stamp Set


Welcome to my first ever blog post as part of an International Blog Hop!  If you’re visiting from Maureen Rauchfuss you’re on the right path.  We are a small group of demonstrators from around the world just sharing our love of card making on the last Saturday of every month.  Come back each month and see what wonderful ideas we’ve all come up with.


Beautiful Friendship

My card features #simple stamping and a one layer card.  I created this card for my swaps for OnStage in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada this past weekend.  Because I was doing several cards I used the stamparatus to make it much quicker.  The Buffalo Check stamp was aligned in the stamparatus to stamp the bottom 2 inches of the Whisper White cardstock in Rococo Rose.  I then aligned the focal flower image in the stampartus and stamped twice in Blushing Bride and then a light layer of Rococo Rose.  I stamped the side flowers once in BB and one in RR.  The leaves were stamped with Pear Pizzaz.  I then cut a quick mask to cover the flowers and leaves and then stamped the background with the all over pattern in Smokey Slate, stamped off once.  I finished off the stamping with the beautiful sentiment “I LOVE OUR beautiful friendship” in Rococo Rose.  The ribbon is the  Very Vanilla Scalloped 3/8″ lace trim.

The card front is then mounted on Blushing Bride cardstock.
