INKsoired Blog Hop #45

Hi there! I'm so happy that you could join us for our fortnightly INKspired Blog Hop.

I hope you've had a wonderful weekend with family and friends - or maybe time alone with your crafting supplies is what you've been hanging for ;)

If you have hopped here from  Nicole's blog, you're in the right spot! Just remember to keep on hopping until you seen all the projects we have made to show you. You won't want to miss any of them.

Here is this week's sketch ... 

As soon as I saw this sketch, I knew that I wanted to heat emboss the flower motif stamp from the Flourishing Phrases stamp set over two different coloured pieces of cardstock. I've been using this stamp set a lot lately, I think it's my absolute fave out of the current Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. 

The tricky part was deciding on a colour scheme, but I couldn't resist the temptation to use my fave SU colour with my fave SU stamp set! So ... out came my beloved Bermuda Bay and I paired it here with Dapper Denim, a hint of Pool Party and a spattering of silver embellishments to give my card a little extra sparkle. 

The Thank You sentiment is also form the Flourishing Phrases stamp set - I really love the elegant font. After attaching the banner with the sentiment, I thought the card needed a little something more. 

As my Papillion Potpourri stamp set hadn't had a showing in a very LONG time, I dusted it off and stamped out the larger butterfly in Bermuda Bay and the smaller one in Pool Party. I had forgotten how sweet these little butterfly stamps are and how well they layer together.


I hope you like my card and that I've given you some ideas you can use in your craft room.

My beautiful friend Marlene is next in the hop. Let's hop over and see what she has created for us.  

Thanks so much for hopping by.
