National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps!!

Hello and welcome!!  Today on the Right at Home Blog we are celebrating National Craft Month!!  Wow, a month dedicated to the love of crafting! Nicole has an awesome giveaway so stay tuned to the end of the post for all the details!



I love all things crafty. And all things DIY, which I think is kind of the same thing.  I love painting (walls, that is. I only wish I could actually paint landscapes or florals!), cross-stitch and I occasionally dabble in a bit of sewing, VERY BASIC sewing!!  But my crafty addiction is paper crafts.  Especially stamping and card making.  So it's no surprise that I made a card today!

I used the fabulous new stamp set made especially to celebrate our love of crafting!  This set is going to be one of my all time favorites, I just know it!  I started by stamping a bunch of the images onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with a waterproof black ink.  I tried something a bit different in the way of colouring today.  I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pens but instead of blending them out with water I used a Dove Blender Pen.  It gives quite a different result.  I then fussy cut them out.

For my card panel, I used the smallest rectangle die from the Find the Beauty Die Set and white cardstock.  For my card base, I used grey cardstock, stamped the Watercolored Background Stamp in Versamark Ink and used Hologram Sparkle Embossing powder from Wow.  It is so sparkly!!


As you can see, this set is full of crafting or hobby images, it is so fun! And the sentiments are amazing. For the sentiment strip, I combined two dies from the Folded Gift Tag Die Set.  This was an experiment and it worked.  Love the way the scallops look underneath the fishtail banner!


I added a ton of Clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents to certain parts of each image.  Before adhering the buttons and sentiment, I balled up some silver thread and placed it underneath each so the foam tape could adhere it down.


I hope you like what I've created today because it was sure fun to make!!  Now, who's ready for a giveaway???  For a chance to win this stamp, all you have to do is leave a lovely comment on each stop of the hop. Easy, right?


Here is the full list of lovelies participating in the hop:
