INKspired Blog Hop #INK017 - Crazy About Watermelon Wonder

Hi there! It's so great to have you back hopping along to another INKspired Blog Hop. You may have arrived here after visiting with the lovely Cherie who has designed a wonderful card for us :)

Here is the sketch we all worked from:

With this sketch, I jumped straight in and started stamping and then realised I had best jump right back out again!  My card just wasn't working :( You know how it is, when you think, "OK this isn't great, but if I just keep adding more elements it'll all come together in the end."  Well ... not this time! Too fussy, colours refusing to harmonising with each other and too many elements!

So I decide to use the KISS principle, and this is what happened ... One colour, clean lines and one happy stamper :)

What do you think? Plain Jane, or Simply Sweet?

Stampin' Up!s new Annual Catalogue launch is just around the corner. Uber exciting, hey!! Every year SU bring out 5 new In Colours and this year's colours are fresh and flavourful with delicious names to match: Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon. Here's a little sneak peek ...

Are you salivating yet??  Be sure to subscribe to my newsletter and I'll let you know when you can get your hot little hands on them :)

This card uses my favourite colour from the new In Colour range - Watermelon Wonder - with coordinating embellishments in the same colour. Aren't the little resin flowers gorgeous? The scalloped edge ribbon is just beautiful, too! The flower stamp I used is from the  Crazy About You stamp set and the congratulations sentiment is from the Bravo stamp set and is heat embossed in white.

OK, it's time to go and see what the talented Maree has created. Happy hopping!

Thanks for visiting my blog.

I hope you have a wonderful day.
