Welcome to my blog!
I’m back with the Let’s Get Hopping crew & today we’re sharing our favourite occasions. You would’ve come from the talented Nina McMillan or starting with me, either way, be sure to hop right around to check out all the different occasions we’re sharing with you 😊
I don’t think I have a specific occasion that’s my favourite but I make mostly birthday cards. So today I’m sharing a couple of these cards with you.
Here’s what I created for today…
I was inspired by the sketch from Global Design Project #298 & have used it again for this project. I also wanted to play along again with the #loveyourstampinupcolors challenge my Artisan friends & I shared at the start of July. I dusted off my Blushing Bride & paired it with the new In-Color Soft Succulent. I also pulled out my Very Vanilla cardstock which tends to get very neglected 😅
The colour combo had a bit of a shabby chic feel so I distressed the edge of my card front to add to the look. I love a good fussy cut sentiment & the Playful Alphabet dies adds a fun touch.
Here’s a closer look…
The “YOU” was cut from the Soft Succulent Shimmer Vellum along with the little flowers. I lightly sponged the Very Vanilla card front with Blushing Bride ink then stamped the flowers also in Blushing Bride.
Here’s a bonus card that I had previously created using the same sketch from #gdp298 for my initial Instagram post for the July challenge…
For this card, I chose to use Cinnamon Cider & the pop of Polished Pink ribbon created a great contrast. The gold embossed sentiment added an elegant touch to the card. Here’s a closer look…
I had heaps of fun playing along with this sketch & as you can see, the same sketch can look totally different! It has also been a fun challenge dusting off my neglected colours.
I hope you enjoyed these projects & you’re inspired to create your favourite occasions. Do join in on the #loveyourstampinupcolors this July!
