Time For A Card - Again - Forever Friendship - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop September 2022

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

This month's inspiration image (see below) has colours that are lovely and bright. The full set of colours for this month's theme are Sweet Sorbet, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Pacific Point and Night of Navy. I was inspired by the colours from the inspiration image and used most of them although substituting the Garden Green with Shaded Spruce.

I used the Forever Friendship stamp set and used Stampin' Blends to colour the images. I combined it with the Gingham Embossing Folder and the 2022-2024 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP.


- Use a piece of Sweet Sorbet card for the the card base and layer with a piece of Sweet Sorbet 2022-2024 In Colour 6" x 6" DSP. Layer with a piece of Basic White embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder.

-  Stamp images from the Forever Friendship stamp set onto Basic White using Tuxedo Black. Colour with Stampin' Blends (Sweet Sorbet, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy). Fussy cut out and use a white gel pen to add accents to both the flags and cardigan. 

- Stamp the sentiment from the Forever Friendship stamp set using Tuxedo Black ink on Basic White card and mat onto Sweet Sorbet. Apply to the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots.

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