Congratulations - Lovely & Sweet - Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop - December 2023

Hello and welcome back to my blog. You are visiting Ann Alexander from Australia. Today I have a card for the December 2023 "Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop".

This month we have a Sketch Challenge. I used the Lovely & Sweet Stamp Set and Nature's Sweetness Specialty DSP from the upcoming Jan-April 2024 Mini Catalogue available next week, letting the DSP do all the work for the sketch and finished it off with some Adhesive-Backed Cork Rounds (retired).


- Use a piece of Basic White card for the card base and layer with a piece of Pebbled Path card.  Use a piece of Nature's Sweetness Specialty DSP with single images and use a cutting knife to cut around some of the leaves to allow another strip of the Specialty DSP to be adhered under the leaves. 

- Stamp the sentiment from the Lovely & Sweet set using Pebbled Path ink onto Basic White card and adhere. Add some Adhesive-Backed Cork Rounds to complete.

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