Papertrey Ink's February 2013 Blog Hop: Marvelous Monograms
I am here tonight to share cards I made for Papertrey Ink's February 2013 Blog Hop: Marvelous Monograms. Here was the challenge image to inspire our creations:
I pulled out a stack of Papertrey Ink stamp sets and set to work coming up with some cards. I ended up with three, but I seriously could have made oodles more of them if I had started on this challenge earlier.
Card No. 1:
I stamped the townhouse from Boards & Beams in harvest gold, limeade ice, aqua mist and ocean tides. I then cut out one of the Half & Half dies from aqua mist cardstock. I stamped the townhouse on aqua mist on the aqua mist panel and then embossed the "s" in white embossing powder. I adhered the panel to the card using dimensional adhesive. Last is a sprinkling of white sequins.
Card No. 2:
I stamped the twiggy wreath from Wreath From All Seasons with dark chocolate and over-stamped it with the berry wreath in raspberry fizz and stamped the "s" in charcoal on kraft cardstock. On a piece of charcoal card base I adhered a strip of pink glitter fabric tape and over that I adhered the kraft panel with dimensional adhesive.
Card No. 3:
I stamped the feather from Happy Trails (love this stamp set!) in raspberry fizz, hawaiian shores and limeaid ice on a white card base. I cut out the Mat Stack 2 die from raspberry fizz cardstock and embossed one of the frames from Mat Stack 2 Collection in gold. I added an "s" from a gold glitter Thickers. The Mat Stack is adhered with dimesional adhesive. I added a frame using a gold leafing pen.
I hope you have enjoyed my takes on the Marvelous Monograms challenge. Thank you so very much for visiting!
