September SOTM Blog Hop ~ Random Acts of Cardness

Welcome to the Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!! This month we are featuring September’s stamp of the month ~ RANDOM ACTS OF CARDNESS (S1909) a set of 17.

If you are coming here from MELISSA ROBINSON’S Blog, then you are in the right spot ~ Welcome!  The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way around.  If you get lost along the way, you can find the complete list of participating  consultants on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 20 consultants participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

This stamp set is wonderful as there are so many great sentiments. I decided to pair it with Sunflower Sympathy Stamp Set.

I made two different cards using this wonderful sunflower!

I created my own plaid paper using the Build a Plaid Stamp Set. I used Sapphire ink on Daisy White. I paired it with Saffron, Paprika and New England Ivy. I wanted to add a bit of shimmer to the card, so I added Gold Shimmer brush to the tips of the butterfly. I also added few Gold Glitter Gems.

For this card I used Gold Embossing powder on Kraft paper. I then use my watercolor paints to paint in the yellow. I used Sapphire Pigment ink to stamp the sentiment and then added a bit of Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped Paprika on Paprika for the centers. I then went over the centers with Clear Shimmer Brush.

If you love this stamp set you will want to be sure you purchase it this month as it is only available the month of SEPTEMBER and if you spend $50 on qualifying product it could be yours for $5!!

    I love the different effects acheived based on the techniques. I love the build a plaid card, but love the effect of the gold embossing on the sunflowers for the end card.

    Great cards! Love the plaid you created. I don’t have my sunflower stamp yet, it should be in my next delivery. Now I see that I will need the Build a Plaid set too.
