It’s Your Day to Sparkle SOTM Blog Hop

Welcome to the It’s Your Day to Sparkle Stamp of the Month Blog Hop where we will be featuring the June It’s Your Day to Sparkle stamp set.MissCarriesCreations-SOTMBlogHopS1906 If you have come here from Kathy Burrows’ blog, you are on the right path!  When you are finished reading my post, you can click on the link at the end to move to the next blog. This blog hop is simple, fun, and full of artwork created by some very talented consultants.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

Recently, I have fallen for the color sage. I am not sure if it because the color has been so prevalent in the papers I am using lately, or if it has something to do with my ever-changing moods. Either way, sage has been on my favorites list and, this week, I chose to use it as a backdrop for a simple anniversary card I created using our It’s Your Day to Sparkle stamp set.

I chose to use a pattern from our True Love papers and pair it with Lilac, Sugarplum, Eggplant and silver. After stitching the background layers together, I repeatedly stamped the sentiment onto some Sage cardstock and layered it behind a Sugarplum Stitched Frame. (If you would like to recreate this card, I have listed the supplies I used at the very bottom of this post.)

The cake image was stamped with Intense Black Ink, then shaded with ink. (yes, ink) I “smooshed” the ink pads so that some ink was applied to the inside of the lid and used my Waterbrushes to shade the layers of the cake. This is a simple way to ensure your image matches your papers.

I added some loops of Silver Embellishing Thread, hearts from the True Love cut-apart page, and Bitty Sparkles to finish the card. I hope that this card inspired you to try something new and that you post what you created in my VIP Facebook Group.

Now ‘Hop” on over to Gina Brandstetter’s blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their blogs to get some great crafting tips and other fun ideas.
