April SOTM Blog Hop – Scandinavian Folk Art Greetings

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Blog Hop!

If you are coming here from KRISTA HERSHBERGER’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 Makers on Melinda’s blog HERE.  This month we have around 13 Makers participating this month so you are sure to be inspired.

I will admit this was a challenging stamp set. I had to do some searches on Pinterest for ideas. Then inspiration hit. I am really happy with the cards I created for this hop.

I designed to two cards. I used a circle and a heart as my stencil to stamp in the open space. Here is the circle stencil I created.

I went in to Circut to create this stencil. I then overlaid this cut image to Daisy White Cardstock and then stamped with in the image. I used the same method for the heart too.

WIth this card I used Avocado, Peacock, Toffee, Canary, and Paprika. I cut the fox using my Cricut, it is part of my Cricut subscription. I added a few Bitty Sparkles.

For this card I used Sage, Desert Rose, Blue Belle and Pewter. I did add a couple Blue Bell Glitter Gems.

    You have really captured the Scandinavian feel with these cards, they are beautiful. I love how you used a stencil to create your heart & circle shape out of the stamped images. It is a great tip and one that I haven’t used in a few years. I need to do it again.

    Love, love, love! Fabulous cards. I love how you curved the stamp to create your “borders”. Beautiful cards!

  5. What a terrific idea – that heart outline is so perfect I had to go back and look at the stamp to see if I just missed that image! Great work 🙂

  6. So cute! I love how you created your patterns.
