INKspired Blog Hop #44

Hi and thanks for joining us in for our 44th INKspired Blog Hop. I hope you've had a lovely weekend and managed to squeeze in some craft time.

If you have hopped here from seeing Nicole's amazing card, you're in the right spot!

Here is this week's sketch ... 

My first card features the Merry Medley background stamp that I stamped in Read Red onto Whisper White card stock. I then used Real Red and Cucumber Crush card stocks for the base of my card. I isolated a section of the Merry Medley stamp for the sentiment inside the Layering Circles framelits. The sweet little holly and berry stamps are from the Hang Your Stocking stamp set. Add a little silver ribbon for a bit of bling and Santa's your sweetheart.

I also needed a birthday card for a friend and thought this sketch would work wonderfully with the Number of Years stamp set. I was delighted with how simple it was to create this card using the floral stamps and sentiment in the set. The colour scheme in this card is Dapper Denim, So Saffron and Mint Macaron. I am so in love with all of the striped ribbons in the 2015-2016 In Colours, and this one in Mint Macaron is really lovely.

Marvellous Marlene is next in the hop. Let's go see what she has created for us today.  

Thanks for hopping by,  I hope to see you again next time.
