Welcome to our Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! We will be featuring November's SOTM, which is called It's the Little Things, a sweet set of 15 stamps. If you have come here from MELISSA'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.
For this hop I decided to play with this week's Mojo Monday sketch. It's Tall & Skinny week, so my card size is 3.5 x 5.5 inches. My table top was still covered in Halloween Goodies, so when I saw that this week's ColourQ challenge would fit the Scaredy Cat papers I knew I wanted to make a non-Halloween card using that awesome bright color combo. I chose Black, Gypsy, Sunset, Pear, and White Daisy. I toned down the Halloween feel by sanding all the Cardstocks and even the B&T paper.
I love me a cute little floral set that's easy to cut out and layer to death...but I wanted to stretch a bit and work towards a layered look without lots of fussy cutting. So I inked the large flower image by swiping it across my Sunset pad (removing most of this ink), then rolling just the tips back into the Sunset ink. I layered on the heart flower in sunset ink, then added the dots using Gypsy ink. I made a simple mask from a post-it, then stamped the leaves over top in Pear Ink. I trimmed my sentiment stamp into individual words (one reason I love clear stamps!), then added a word to each square. I backed my Baker's Twine knot with a snip of purple shimmer trim...and then I finally gave in and fussy cut a tiny flower to top off my knot. I just had to be me!
