I am excited about this month’s stamps, and have had a blast playing with them. Before I share my card, let me just give you the details of the hop:
- The hop will run from 8am EST Feb 1 until 8pm EST Feb 2
- Winners will be announced on the ODBD Blog on Feb 3
- There will be THREE prizes: One $20.00 Gift Certificate, One $40.00 Gift Certificate, and One $60.00 Gift Certificate for STAMPS in the ODBD Store!!!
- To qualify for one of these prizes, simply hop to each designer, leave a comment on each blog, and return to the ODBD Blog to tell us you completed the hop, noting if there were any problems along the way. That’s it!
I started by black embossing the Chalkboard onto white card stock, then used a brayer and a melon rainbow ink pad to roll on the colors. I think it’s a great way to get a lot of color with very little effort. I also like how it reminds me of some of those restaurant chalkboards written with the neon chalk. I brayered another piece of white card stock and stamped the Honeycomb Background on top. With the big, bold solid centerpiece image, I wanted a more open image for the background so the honeycomb really fit the bill. After black embossing a smaller white piece with the Antique Labels Designs and Happy Birthday sentiment, I die cut it using the matching Antique Label die. I left the die in place and since it’s a much smaller piece, I sponged on the ink. I added a white layer behind the chalkboard, a yellow bow and my 4.25 x 5.50 card was finished.
Now I’ll send you on to the blog of the wonderful and talented Chris! Thanks so much for stopping by!
