Stamping Inkspiration Blog Hop...Sketch Challenge

StampingInkspiration hop

I have been away from my craft cubbie for about 2-1/2 weeks.  When we got home I was ready to get back to stamping.   I was looking forward to playing with some new products from the J-J 2022 Mini Catalog and the J-F 2022 Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  

Measure_of_Love-Rainbows&Sunshine-1

It was harder than I thought it would be.  I recycled a lot of starts,  questioned myself whether something was good or not, and when I look at what I made I am still not sure.  It is a strange feeling.  I still enjoyed the process and know that I need to flex that creativity muscle and use it and it will get stronger.

Thank goodness the January Stamping Inkspirations blog hop is a Sketch Challenge.  It made it much easier to create the project.  

Measure_of_Love-Sunshine&Rainbows-front

I used the bright and happy Sunshine & Rainbows 6" x 6" DSP.  This pack of paper is one of the Sale-A-Bration choices which means it is Free with a $50 purchase.   I used 3 different designs and you know I like stripes and polka dots!  

The adorable cupcakes are from the Measure of Love set.  Love the little cupcakes, each decorated with a little flower and pearl.

Measure_of_Love-Sunshine&Rainbows-side

I used the Stitched Rectangle dies to cut the DSP. The squares were cut  using a retired die set, Stitched Shapes.  I know I am not alone in wishing that the Stitched Shapes would come out of retirement and re-appear in the Stampin' Up! catalog.

Measure_of_Love-Sunshine&Rainbows-border

The ric-rac shape on both the outside and inside of the card was created using the Basic Borders dies.   This is a fun way to dress up the inside of the card and use the little strips of DSP.  The Sunshine and Rainbow paper is too cute and I don't want to waste any of it.
