October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop: Wildflower Friendship

Welcome to the October Stamp of the Month Blog Hop featuring the adorably on-trend set called Wildflower Friendship. If you've been out shopping for home decor at all, you've seen similar items everywhere.


A little blog hop business before we get to my card. You should have come from Darlys's blog, but don't worry if you started here. The hop is a circle, so just keep going until you get back to where you started. If you get lost along the way, head over to Melinda's blog for a full list of participants.

Now if you've been around my blog at all, you know how much I love using tags on cards. The new Buildable Tags Thin Cuts came to my new house, and I just had to use it with that cute fox.


I started by stamping the library card image from the "Date Stamp" stamp set in Mink ink, but instead of using the thin cut that's part of that set, I used one from the Buildable Tags to cut it out. I then added some splatters using my Black Shimmer Brush and set it aside to dry. 

I also a couple other thin cuts. The background is As You Grow paper with the Stitched Rectangles thin cuts and the sentiment is Ballerina paper through one of the banners that's part of the Waterfall thin cut. I also made the tag hole from Ballerina and looped Gold Embroidery Thread through the hole.

The fox was actually really easy to color. I just picked a handful of colors that matched the background paper and started coloring. There's no shading because the images are too small. I only did a little shading on the fox. Once I had her colored, I built my card up in layers, adding foam tape behind the fox to give her a little more dimension. Gold Loose Sequins were added with Liquid Glass to tie in the gold from the tag top.

Honestly, I wasn't completely sold on this stamp set when I first saw it, but it's really growing on me. I can't wait to hop over to Wendy's blog to see what she and everyone else has created to inspire us.

Until next time,
Becca
