“Love” Card with the CTMH September Stamp of the Month

CTMH September Stamp of the Month – “Love” Card

Today I got a little crafty with the CTMH September Stamp of the Month, “Family is Forever.” Rather than just inking and stamping the large tree image, I used my sponge daubers to dab on 3 colors of ink. Dabbing on the ink made a softer, muted look, and varying the colors made the tree look a little more like fall.

The colors that I used came from Color Dare this week: Barn Red, Sunset, and Honey. After I stamped the tree image, I used my dauber to add some Sunset color to the base of the tree and then stamped individual leaf sections from the tree onto the “ground.” The “Love” sentiment was stamped with the September promotional stamp set, #30yearsofhappy, and then popped off the card with some foam tape.

  1. Great card! Love the “soft” stamping and the random leaves at the bottom of the card are a fabulous touch. I will definitely be trying out this technique hopefully soon. Thank you for sharing with us at Color My Heart Challenge Blog.

  4. I love the softness of the colors and how you blended them using the sponge daubers. The sponging and leaves along the bottom grounds the tree and is a nice touch. Thank you for taking the Color My Heart Color Dare!
