My last post was a monster and went on a little, that is not happening today my friends. It is time for a new INKspired blog hop which happens every second Sunday, the amazing group of cardmakers are members of my Stampin’ Up! Team. I set a new challenge normally it has been a sketch but we are getting brave and now doing colour challenges and coming soon scrapbooking pages, this round we have a sketch and I really really enjoyed this design, I design all the sketches but I still make myself wonder!
I am into fussy cutting at the moment and I knew I wanted to use this flower design from Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP). That meant I needed to get chopping, I totally cut more than I required but being positive at least I have a head start on another card. The sweet dot paper is from Bird Ballad DSP, this was the one element that I was not sure on as I started out using Whisper White cardstock as I wanted the flowers to stand out but I found it was just to plain.
For the greeting, I stamped “Always Thinking of You” from Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set in Versamark Pad on Crumb Cake A4 Card Stock and white embossed it. Over the top, I lightly stamped the border image from Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set over the embossed greeting and finally a light water wash of Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink Refill.
Inside the card, I have more the fussy cut flowers from behind an oval which had the same treatment as the greeting on the front of the card, the greeting is from Woven Heirlooms Cling Stamp Set.
Next stop on the INKspired blog hop is our newest member Sharon Arklay I am delighted to have her creating with us each fortnight.
