Hello There - Full of Love - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop July 2022

Hello and welcome back to my blog. You are visiting Ann Alexander from Australia. Today I have a card for the July 2022 "Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop".  

Now this month's inspiration image (see below) was another challenging one for me as some of the colours are ones that I rarely use except for (no surprise) a colour challenge. The full set of colours for this month's theme are Pacific Point, Blackberry Bliss, Poppy Parade, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight and Smoky Slate.

I was inspired by the more neutral colour palette of the yellows and greys and exchanged the Poppy Parade for Sweet Sorbet and added a little green to balance out the card. I used the Full of Love stamp, colouring with Stampin' Blends and I used the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes both for the card base and also used an envelope to provide the patterned paper layer.


- Use one of the Sweet Sorbet Tea Boutique Cards for the base. Layer with a piece of Smoky Slate and then a piece cut from an envelope of the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes.

- Stamp the image and sentiment from the Full of Love stamp set using Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White. Colour with Stampin' Blends (Sweet Sorbet, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Old Olive).

- Stamp some additional floral images using Mango Melody ink onto Basic White and fussy cut as well as stamping directly onto the card. Apply Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to complete.

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