"Stamping on Cardstock" CTMH Technique Blog Hop


Welcome to our October Technique Blog Hop where we are "Stamping on Cardstock". There are so many ways to incorporate the two and I can't wait for you to see the awesome creations from our participants. If you are coming from Maz's Blog, you are on the right track. You can find a complete list of participants at the bottom of this post. 
I've had my eye on this card pattern for some time, from the Make It From Your Heart Volume 5 How-to Book, and decided to put it to use for this handmade card. To create it, you cut squares and rectangles of different size and then cut from the center to an edge to create the v-shape. By layering coordinating cardstock together, you get this result. Isn't it great?! 

I felt the need to add a bit of dimension and did so by stamping with Mulberry ink on Mulberry cardstock (the darker side), for "tone-on-tone" stamping. That is one of my favorite techniques to do on cardstock. I love being able to create my own patterned paper. 

The cardstock colors I used are: Mulberry, Capri, Harbour, Paprika and Shortbread (what the images are stamped on).

After stamping the images from the Pumpkin Treats stamp set (+ Thin Cuts), I used Tri-Blend Markers to color them in. I debated on what I wanted to use for the whip cream - Paste, Embossing Powder, etc. - and decided on using our NEW White Gel Pens. A little bit of Thin 3-D Foam Tape and some Blue Belle Loose Sequins were all I used to finish off this card. 
Oh! The sentiment comes from one of my favorite new stamp sets, "For All Occasions". I love the variety provided as well as the different fonts that are included. 

I appreciate you stopping by and encourage you to continue making your way around the hop to see what the others have created to share with you! Now, head on over to Cat's Blog and enjoy your weekend! Happy hopping!
