StampnPlus Stamp Of The Month Blog Hop!



Welcome to StampNPlus Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!!

If Bonnie  sent you over for a visit then you are exactly where you are meant to be. If you just happen to be visiting then you should head over to StampNplus  for the beginning of this fabulous hop!

I first would like to tell you all a little about myself. I am the Admin for StampNPlus Team . I started on this Team a little over two Months ago. I wanted to help our Lovely Design Team Leader (LuAnn Hale) to make positive changes to her Store and her Blog! Her store is still a work in progress so please be patient with it!
If you have never used StampNPlus stamps you are so missing out! Her stamps are Great Quality and when you put the Ink on them they never smear and the images are always crystal clear!
The StampNPlus Team are so talanted and all have unique styles!

So on saying that here is my Card that I have made using the Stamp Of The Month!

(Marine Life F1273)

Ingrediants:

StampNPlus: Stamp Of the Month (F1273)

DCWV PAPER: Spring Fling and Summer Days 12x12 Mat Stack

Marth Stewart Ink: Black and Turquoise

Stazon Ink: Timberland Brown

Color Pencils: ColourPro Collection

Sentiment: Micheals Dollor Bin Deal

I started off with a regular Green 5 1/2 x 4 1/2 card base. Then I took my DCWV paper and cut my scrap too 5 x 4 and place it on the Green Card base. Then I cut a plain White scrap paper and cut that to a 4 1/2 x 3 1/2 and added that on top of the DCWV paper.
I inked the StampNPlus featured stamp of the month  with Stazon ink. I took my sentiment stamp coated the top part of the words with Martha Stewart Turquoise Ink and the Bottom with the Martha Stewart Black ink and gave it a two tone effect to it. I then used the Color Pencils and colored the frog and the branch!
Then last but not least  I inked and rounded the corner of the card to make it look more professional.
