April SOTM Blog Hop

April SOTM

Welcome to the April Stamp of the Month blog hop.
If you arrived here from Amy's Blog you’re on the right track.

The April Stamp of the Month D1409 FLOWER POT is perfect for simple outline images but it can also be colored in as I did here in the Sorbet flowers on the rectangle. I made this card from a pattern in Wishes. On the Edge is a 5 ½ by 4 1/4 standard sized card with the fold on the left. The paper is Caboodle and the color scheme is Sweet Leaf, Sorbet, and Crystal Blue. I stamped the word thanks on a slightly smaller than 2” circle and layered it on a 2” circle of the crystal blue paper from Caboodle. The large circle is cut from a Spellbinders Large Pinking Circle die cut. I random stamped the tiny flower clusters all over everything in all of the different inks. All of my edges were inked with Sorbet ink using a finger dauber.
The center of the flowers on the rectangle have tiny spots of glitter added.

Now, hop on over to Dawn's Blog and see what she has in store for you.
