The Dandy Garden Suite features the best product in the January to June catalog…the Dandy Laser Cut Papers! There are 2 sheets of laser cuts in a package. I used the top middle laser cut on my design today.

See how the laser cut dragonfly adds instant wow…

Mat the Blackberry Bliss cardstock with Soft Suede cardstock and add a Ladybug trinket as shown in the card are on the right. Or leave off the card for a simple stamping look.

Paper Crafting Blog Touch of Ink

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you showcasing exclusive, free products you can earn with qualifying orders. You may have arrived from Nancy’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

I paired the Touch of Ink Sale-a-bration stamp set with the Forever Flowers pattern paper from the annual catalog.

I used a modified Rock n Roll technique to color the hummingbird. Ink the image in Crumb Cake. Then Rock n Roll Shaded Spruce on the belly and Night of Navy on the wings. Yep, ink is transferred to the acrylic block. Just wipe with a tissue to keep your fingers clean.
