Love You Miss You - Very Best Occasion and Rays of Light - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop August 2022

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

This month's inspiration image (see below) was a fun one. The full set of colours for this month's theme are Balmy Blue, Pale Papaya, So Saffron, Soft Seafoam, Pear Pizzaz and Evening Evergreen. This month I was more inspired by the image although I did end up using the So Saffron and Pale Papaya and a variety greens to represent the greens from the Challenge image.

I used the Very Best Occasions stamp set, the Rays of Light stamp set and the Today is the Day Memories and More card pack. I also used the Wonderful World DSP from the Wonderful World Bundle (a Sale-a-bration item which you can get for FREE for spends over AUD$180) as well as the retired 2021-2023 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP.


- Use a piece of Basic White card for the the base and layer with a piece of Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP. Stamp the Rays of Light onto Basic White using So Saffron Ink and layer on top.

-  Use a punch or circle die to cut multiple circles from the Today is the Day Memories and More card pack and use one of the stickers from the pack to create the layers of circles on the front of the cardFussy cut one of the flowers from the Wonderful World DSP and cut apart to place behind the circles on the front.

- Stamp the sentiment from the Very Best Occasions stamp set using Flirty Flamingo ink on Basic White card and adhere. 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.
