May Stamp of the Month Color Dare

As a guest designer for Color My Heart's Color Dare, I was invited to create a project using Buttercup and Hollyhock.


On top of that, I challenged myself to use May's Stamp of the Month - You've Got a Friend. I went crazy with texture and trying different techniques with the stamp set:



Texture comes from the dot embossing folder, sanded Hollyhock cardstock and Kraft Artiste yo-yo. Stamping techniques include paper piecing - I stamped the image in Chocolate ink on the B&T paper and white cardstock, and in Buttercup ink on white cardstock, then cut out various parts to create a layered look. I also used a portion of the "Merci Beaucoup" image on some of the Buttercup cardstock - it almost just looks like lines because the letters are so tall and skinny. I love the mix of thick and thin lines on this stamp set!

You can get May's Stamp of the Month for $5 with every $50 purchased (as well as the National Scrapbooking Month paper pack!) Click here to start shopping.

I really did a double take with this card! I thought I saw a striped ribbon in yellow, then I read the post... What an awesome way of using a stamp! You go girl!!!

Yummy! I love this medallion and how you pieced it and stamped on patterned paper. I rarely do that and I appreciate you sharing this lovely idea!

Lovely card, Morgan! I like how you carried the ribbons theme throughout, with the rosette and the banners. You were very successful in dressing up the stamped image. Thanks for being our guest designer this week.
