Same Set Syndrome October Hop

Welcome back, my friends! This month we are doing something special… kinda a Wild Card month with projects using one of the sponsors we have previous showcased… Joy Clair, Not 2 Shabby, Create and Inkspire, and Kat Scrappiness. To make it interesting, we decided to make this a technique month so we are all making fun shaped cards! And as a reminder, at the end of the hops (last one is in November), Allison Kulka who has organized the hop, will be drawing a winner from all the blog posts for a $50 gift card to the hop sponsor of your choice! To have a chance to win, leave a comment on as many of the hop stops along the way! For my project I opted to use the August Create and Inkspire kit!

Using my Silhouette, I selected a palette shape, sized it to be approximately A2 size, and cut it twice from 110 lb cardstock as a card base. I could have welded the shapes together but I prefer to score the back piece along the top and attach it to the front piece using Score tape. Next I stamped and heat emboss my sentiment, which is a combination of stamps from the C&I kit. The kit also came with a fun stencil of various splats which I used to add my ‘paint’ to the palette. I used hybrid inks from Impression Obsession and blending brushes for my paint splats, and that finished my card! Here is a view of it standing up.

The next person in the hop is my friend, LeeAnn McKinney. Don’t forget to leave a comment here before hopping along to have more chances to win!
