Nina B. Designs April Blog Hop

Welcome to the NinaB Designs Blog Hop! The theme of this month's hop is Stamping Techniques. Nina challenged the team to do a technique, which could be as simple as coloring, die-cutting or more involved like emboss resist, making your own embellishments, etc.

I'm not really the most technique oriented person, so I stuck with what I know....and that is stamping on patterned paper.  This probably isn't really considered a technique, but it is about as technique oriented as I get.  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from oatmeal cardstock.
2. Cut aqua dotted paper slightly smaller and adhere.
3. Cut two matching floral strips and adhere to the aqua block.
4. Fussy cut the journal card from patterned paper and adhere to the middle with foam adhesive.
5. Punch a border to pink patterned paper, and adhere to the bottom of the journal card.
6. Cut a banner edge to light patterned paper, and stamp the sentiment to it and adhere.
7. Layer flowers to the right of the sentiment banner, then accent with a brad.
8. Add a cluster of diecut embellishments to the lower right corner of the journal card, popping the heart with foam.
9. Tie a twine bow, and layer to the heart with a jewel to finish.
