Welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop! This fun and talented group hops on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Every hop has a theme and this month we have a Color Challenge!
In Stampin' Up! lingo the colors are Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Bumblebee, and Garden Green. The challenge is to use at least 3 of these colors on our project. We were also given the option of using Basic White, Very Vanilla, Basic Black and/or Crumb Cake.
I used Blushing Bride, Polished Pink and Garden Green on my card. True Confessions time-I purchased the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Masks as soon as I could and this was the first time I really played with them! It was fun and easy using the Blending Brushes with Blushing Bride and Polished Pink to make a soft design. I am inspired to play with them more so stay tuned!
One thing I noticed it was difficult to put the masks back into the plastic bag they came in. There are lots of cuts and openings on the masks so it is easy to get snagged on the other masks. My quick solution was to put them in one of the Standard Stamp Cases (page 145 Annual Catalog way at the bottom). I slipped the envelope the masks came in on the front so I can see what's stored inside.
Now it is easier to pull out the masks to use and to put them away. Depending on where I end up storing the masks, I might also put a label on the spine. Hope that was a helpful tip and now back to the card!
The cute scalloped edge was cut using the Penned Flower dies. Are you wondering what set that sentiment is from? It is the Special Moments stamp set, a Sale-A-Bration choice. It seem like since i got it I have been using it non stop. So many great sentiments to choose from, 21 to be exact. Remember, Sale-A-Bration ends this month.
I had to a few (ahem, 13!) Iridescent Rhinestones. They are so sparkly and pick up the colors around them. I also added the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to "tie" it all together and add a little more sparkle.
Now it is time to hop on over to see what the oh so creative Angie McKenzie has created for you.
Here's a list of all the fabulous stops on the hop!
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
