February Stamp of the Month Bloghop - A Happy Hello

Welcome to February's Stamp of the Month Blog Hop! This month, we are featuring the stamp set "A Happy Hello" - a set of 15 stamps. There are flowers galore in this stamp set, along with stems and branches plus a happy hello sentiment, and many uses for this set as the bloggers along this tour will show you, so sit back and enjoy the tour. You should have arrived here from Donna Digby's blog. If you get lost, a list of all blogs can be found here

The stamp set looks like this.

I chose to create a card using this set. I used every stamp except one in the set, so 14 stamps in total. 
As soon as I pulled out this set, the colours of pink and purple called out to me! I knew that was going to be the focus of my card. 

This is a 5x7 card and I chose to layer many of the flowers. I used some of our ShinHan markers to colour in parts of some of the flowers as well. The sentiment has been stamped in pigment ink and embossed although that is hard to see in the photo. 
The centres of all the flowers are sparkles but they look darker in my photo than they do on the card itself. I also stitched around the outside of the card, just to give it some added interest and I embossed the background of the card using the Floral embossing folder. 

I hope you enjoyed my project. The next blog on the hop is Wendy Coffman's blog. I'm sure she has something wonderful to share with you!
