Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we feature a different card technique. We’ve assembled a team of card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas.
We all love our stamp sets and our patterned paper. Well, this month we’re combining our two loves by stamping ON patterned paper for some unique projects. It will be fun to see what stamps and papers our team decides to pair together. And, if you would like to check out our past technique hops, you can do that here:

Now to my projects:
My first card was made using all Stampin’ Up products, both current and retired. I’ve always loved this Love is Kindness stamp and I’m glad I got the opportunity to use it.
Next up, I heat embossed an image from the Sky is the Limit stamp set on an old world map I found on the Internet. I used several other stamp sets to complete the card. I don’t know if this happens to other card makers, but I was satisfied with the card until I looked at the pictures I took for my blog. It was then I discovered the greeting should really be down further and a bit to the right to be more balanced and pleasing to the eye.
My plan is to follow-up with another post sharing details about the construction of both cards…but you know how it is with plans. If you happen to have a specific question, just ask in the comments section and I’ll be sure to answer.
Now you’re off to visit with Wilma, whose projects are always a delight for the eyes. I hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by. See you next month with another technique!
