Beloved Bouquet Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the first blog hop for 2016!

If you've landed here from Lauren Moore's CTMH Craftings, you're in the right spot.

For this hop, I decided to team up the January stamp of the month Beloved Bouquet and the new Charlotte paper pack to create some sympathy cards.

This stampset is beautiful! I layered 1st and 2nd generation stamping to create this card. I quite like the effect that the layered stamping gives. I haven't tried this technique before and I'm rather impressed. :)

I decided to try some of the other images on this stampset and create a more generic/male sympathy card. This is what I came up with. The delicate spray image blends nicely with the patterns in this paper, creating the perfect base.

I used these materials to make both cards: Charlotte paper packet, Beloved Bouquet sotm, Black Slate Hollyhock Sweet Leaf and Topiary inks, Gold Sequin Assortment, Gold Foil Tape, Originals Card Confidence Program, Trimmer, Versamat, Bone Folder, White Daisy Cardstock, White Card Value Pack, Non-stick Micro-tip Scissors, 3" X 3" My Acrylix® Block, Spritz, Scrubber, Adhesive.

I'd love it if you'd leave a comment before popping over to Maz Wood's Inky Fingers.
