Let’s Get Hopping 44: Favourite Occasions

Welcome to my blog!


I’m back with the Let’s Get Hopping crew & today we’re sharing our favourite occasions. You wouldโ€™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 ๐Ÿ˜Š

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 ๐Ÿ˜…

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!
