Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators and me. This month, we are featuring projects created with guys in mind. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Tricia Butt’s blog and her fabulous project.

The Tranquil Textures designer series papers has a few options that look like water. I picked the pattern with a little purple so the fish could be accented with purple.

This card design was in the March Card Buffet line up. The supplies used to create the card were contained in a plastic tub lid and passed around the stamp table. Blender pens were used for coloring the fish. I wrap a piece of scrap paper around the cover at one end to indicate which pen should be used for which color. The pens won’t need to be “brushed out” of color until after the event. This might also save my ink pads from being accidentally dipped with the wrong color:)

Hold on to Hope How To

I shared this card in a Spring and Easter blog hop yesterday. Today, I am sharing assembly tips and supplies used.

3 2018inkbloghop5-001

Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut to 3 1/8 x 5 1/2 inches forms a mat for the 3 x 5 inch Painted with Love dsp. Gold foil sheets cut to 1 x 3 inches and 1 1/2 x 3 inches form mats under the sentiment and cross respectively. A whisper white 1 3/8 inch circle accents the center of the cross.

The butterfly on the banner did now show up well in the above photo. Here is a close up showing that our mini-dimensionals are the perfect size to flutter this butterfly on the banner.

Make one pass through the Big Shot as shown in the photo below. Nest 2 of the crosses towards the bottom of a 3 x 5 1/2 inch Painted with Love Specialty designer series paper. Both crosses will be cut. I opted to assemble them nested as well. The piece of Painted with Love dsp that has the crosses cut from it is used as a layer on the card.

After passing through the Big Shot…3 2018inkbloghop8-001

Use the regular sized dimensionals to secure the nested crosses. Use glue dots to secure the powder pink shimmer ribbon and linen thread.

The inside is stamped with the same flower image that was stamped three times on the outside of the card too. A piece of 3 x 5.5 inch whisper white provides space for a personal message.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Hold on to Hope

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog. My hop design is below.

I am featuring the Hold on to Hope stamp set and framelits to create a hand stamped greeting card. The Painted with Love specialty designer series paper has gold accents so pairs well with blocks of gold foil sheets. I’ll be making several of these so they are ready for mailing as needed.

The dsp also has painted looking stripes of rich razzleberry and powder pink. So the mat is rich razzleberry attached to powder pink cardstock. Linen thread and powder pink shimmer ribbon encase the crosses.

The inside carries over the stamping on the right border with a whisper white liner to write a personal message.

Beautiful Peacock

I shared this design in yesterday’s blog hop. Thanks for hopping back for the design details. I started with the Tutti Frutti cards and envelopes. Bonus is that they are already cut, scored and have tone on tone “v” design printing. 2 24 2018bloghop3-001

The first layer is a diagonal striped rich razzleberry print that is part of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack. It was originally sized at 4×6 inches. A 1×4 inch piece was cut off so it would fit on the card front.

Next, our delicate white doilie was cut in half and adhered as shown.

2 24 2018 bloghop1-001

Close up of the peacock stamped on a piece of 3 x 3 7/8 inch whisper white cardstock. One of the circle stamps was used to create a daffodil delight inked border along one side and then one opposite corner. The “beautiful friend” stamp was cut using the lemon builder punch layered with a 1 inch circle punched rich razzleberry cardstock piece.

2 24 2018 bloghop5-001

Sponge daubers were used to add daffodil light ink to the wing and head feathers. Crumb cake ink daubed underneath the peacock grounds the bird.

The lemon builder punch was used to create the sentiment.

2 24 2018 bloghop6-001

Stamp the inside of the card with a sentiment from the Lovely Friends stamp set. Decorate the envelope back with daffodil delight inked peacock feathers.
