West Coast Creators Blog Hop (January 2020)

It's blog hop time again with my crafty West Coast Creators teammates!  And even better, the January - June mini catalogue is now live AND it's Saleabration time!

I actually made this card more than a month ago but I have yet to share it or write the blog entry I had been intending to!  

This card use the stamp set Enjoy the Moment.  It was included in our swag bag from attending On Stage at Home.  It's one of those sets that I look at and think I don't need but I've seen incredible projects with it and I had SO much fun creating this design.

There are a lot of different elements so I'll start from the cardstock and work my way out to the detailed images.

I chose a Cinnamon Cider cardstock base to which I added a layer of Early Espresso cardstock (4"x5.25") topped with a layer of Whisper White (3.75"x5"). 

Now for the images, I chose to stamp in versamark and heat emboss in white. I did this on the smallest Stitched Shape Square die cut on Whisper White.  

Each image was then sponged with a different ink colour - Petal Pink, So Saffron, Pool Party and Soft Sea Foam. Each image is then backed with a scalloped square layer in the coordinating cardstock. 

I used Sponge Daubers to create this look but now that the Blending Brushes are available, I'm looking forward to trying this again using the brushes. To finish it off, I stamped the greeting using Early Espresso.

I am so pleased with the end result of this card and can't wait to use this stamp set to create more beautiful designs!

Thanks so much for visiting my blog. Be sure to 'hop' to as many of the others as you can!
