Happy Retirement - Senior Years - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop April 2022

Hello and welcome back to my blog. You are visiting Ann Alexander from Australia. Today I have a card for the "Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop".  

Now this month's inspiration image (see below) is a colourful one and definitely an interesting colour combination that I haven't used before. The colours for the theme are Pear Pizzazz, Bermuda Bay, Misty Moonlight, Rich Razzleberry and Blushing Bride.

I decided to use the Senior Years which is a retiring set and will only be available till May 2nd before the new Stampin' Up!® 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue becomes available on May 3rd. I coloured the image with a combination of Stampin' Blends and Stampin' Write Markers. I also used the Heart & Home Memories and More Cards and Envelopes.


- Use a piece of card from the Heart & Home Memories and More Cards and Envelopes. Layer a piece of Rich Razzleberry card onto it. 

- Use Stampin' Blends (Bermuda Bay, Misty Moonlight & Rich Razzleberry) to colour Basic White card and cut into 3/8" strips, and adhere to a piece of Basic White then adhere to the card base.

- Stamp the image from the Senior Years stamp set onto Basic White and colour with a combination of Stampin' Blends ( Bermuda Bay, Misty Moonlight & Rich Razzleberry and the new Natural Tones Stampin' Blends - 900 and 1000) and Stampin' Write Markers (Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride). Fussy cut out and adhere to the card front. Stamp a sentiment from the set using Misty Moonlight ink onto Basic White, mat with Misty Moonlight card and adhere to the card.

- Die cut the clouds from Basic White using the Brilliant Rainbow Dies and use a sponge dauber to add Misty Moonlight ink to the edges of the clouds and then adhere to the card.

I hope the card you've seen here on my blog today has inspired you to create something today.
