Stamping With Friends Blog Hop- Monochromatic Card Theme


Thank you for joining us today for the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop where we are featuring a Monochromatic card theme.  This means you use as much as the same one color as possible.  We are Stampin' Up! ® Independent demonstrators from around the world who are here to show you our inspiration of this theme.  

I have chosen to use the Calming Camellia stamp set which is the FREE hostess set in the Sale-A-bration brochure through the end of February 2022.  My chosen color for my monochromatic theme is Gorgeous Grape with just a touch of Basic White for stamping purposes.  I also added a bit of the new Layering Designs Vellum from the mini catalog for a pop of texture somewhat.  

For my card base in gorgeous grape I started with a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and scored it at 4 1/4". I then cut another piece of Gorgeous Grape at 4" x 5 1/4" and  I stamped the largest flower image all over the background in Gorgeous Grape ink.  I then layered a piece of the sheer Gorgeous Grape ribbon around this piece.  I adhered this to my card base. 

My next layer of Gorgeous Grape paper is cut at 3" x 3 1/2" and layered with a piece of Basic White that is 2 7/8" x 3 3/8 and stamped the large image in Gorgeous Grape ink.  I then adhered these together and added a strip of that vellum that I tore along the right side and attached this whole layer with dimensionals to the base pieces.  

For the inside I used a piece of Basic White that measure 4" x 51/4" and stamped my sentiment and image in the lower right corner in again Gorgeous Grape ink. 

I hope you enjoyed my card today and found some inspiration to make one similar with a stamp set you have on hand and the color of you choice. Please continue hopping along with us by clicking the next button below to go to the next blog.
