April Stamp of the Month - Country Livin'

The winning stamp set for April was Country Livin', I just love this set; it isn't a big confusing set but if you are a little bit country or just country at heart, this is a set to add to your collection.  The April Stamp of the Month kit comes with the Stamp Set and Everything that You Need to Make 4 Cards.

Card #1 - Country Boots for Her
 What a fun and simple card, I love how this card came together.  I lightly stamped the flower bunch from the stamp set Birthday Blossoms on the Whisper White cardstock in Pool Party.  Stamping and coloring the boots in Soft Suede and Die cutting the flowers from Jar of Love, add some gold twine and white enamel dots and you have a great card for that country gal.

Card #2 - This Old Truck
 For this card I just wanted the old truck to be the highlight, I stamped the Hardwood Background stamp in Tip Top Taupe on Tip Top Taupe cardstock.  I am going to miss this color, I have used it so much in the last two years, but it is retiring on June 1st.  I then stamped the truck onto Very Vanilla cardstock in Chocolate Chip ink and sponged some ink around the edges.  Added this to a layer of Chocolate Chip cardstock and added a loose twine bow.  Great Masculine Card!

Card #3 - Fancy Fold Card with the Old Truck

 As you can see this old truck is great on it's own or it can be colored with markers or watercolor pencils which is what I used.  I added the sentiment and layer and the card was ready to go.  It doesn't take much to make a great card it is the little things!!

Card #4 - Sing Me a Song!
The last card featured the guitar that is in this stamp set, I paired it up with some designer series paper that I had, some twine and silver stars.  I also added some Gorgeous Grunge to the card to make it look less white in the background.  I really love how this card turned out.

Like our Stamp of the Month cards, I will be announcing the May Stamp of the Month set on Thursday.  If you already have the winning stamp set, you can order the card kit of four cards from me for $5; it comes with everything that you need to make the cards including detailed instructions and colored pictures.

Happy Stamping!
