Welcome to Club Scrap's monthly Blog Hop.
This month the name of the kit is BLUEPRINT.
Hope you have arrived here from Tricia's blog

I decided to make some cards this time
I really need. As we have some people
moving house I need a few of those and
some tags for the flowers I am going to give.
Also I made some matching evelopes with
that wonderful stencil that came with the kit:
The stencil measures 8 x8 inch and is perfect for
a normal size card. So I lay down the stencil,
took the 4 matching colors of the kit
(Topaz,Leaf, Earth and Saphire)
and with a blending tool I colored the paper.
Took out my envelope punch board and started making
envelopes according the instructions on the board.
Here the finished envelope with the card.
To make it easy on myself I have made some quick
and fun backgrounds using the gelli plate with
matching acrylpaint colors to the kit.
You wil notice that the text I have used on all my cards
are not on the stamp sheets. I needed some other sentiments
this time,so I downloaded the matching
fonts to this kit and printed my own sentiments.
This mont's fonts are
The houses you see in the background are a
Tim Holtz die and is perfect for these
kind of cards.
The heart on this tag is a stamp
by Michael Strong.
Here the sentiment is a stamp
from the kit.
Not only do I need some moving cards,
I also need some cards for the
Jewish New Year
which is starting tomorrow.
For these cards I also made the background
with the gelli plateand matching acrylic paints.
I have cut out a pommegranate from paper
and added this to the paper to get the shape.
Using some stencils on top for fun effects.
Here are the finished cards. The hebrew text is from my stash and
is the hebrew for Happy New year.The colors of the kit
were just perfect. The golden paper has the color of honey that we
eat on the apple to wish each other a very sweet year.
Here are two tags I made for the flowers. The pommegranate
is cut out and added with some foam tape to the tag
and little red rhinestones are the pips in this fruit.
Wishing all my Jewish craft friends a very happy,
healthy, crafty New Year and let's hope
for a little more Peace to the world.
Now on to the next blog and see what
