Smitten and Sweetheart Release Blog Hop- Day 1

Hey there, crafty friends. Today’s card set is part of THIS Blog Hop celebrating THIS new release…

To create this card set, I stared by stamping the three layers of THIS stamp set on a white A2 panel using three colors in the same ink family. I did this to create a monochromatic look for each card. Using that same stamp set, I stamped a different sentiment along the bottom of each card. I stamped a coordinating cardstock with THIS text and cut THIS die from the center to create a frame for each card. I adhered it on top of the stamped background and finished off the card by adding THIS die cut sentiment. I added some of THIS on top of the die cut sentiment for some sparkle.

Here’s a closer look at each card…

I hope this inspires you to create a monochromatic card set.

There is much more inspiration to see…
