Stampin’ Up! Bunch of Blossoms Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Happy Thursday to you all.  Today we had a color challenge using Pool Party, Old Olive and Calypso Coral.  I was inspired by the Whole Lot of Lovely Designer Series paper which helped me in my design.  I did end up using Tangerine Tango instead of Calypso  Coral because I liked it best with my DSP but this could easily be switched if you prefer Calypso Coral better.

Stampin’ Up! “Coffee Cafe'” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, I took a week off while we were on vacation to the beautiful state of Alaska.  I had no internet service to link my blog which is why I was missing from the hop last week.  All last week I craved my Starbucks Mocha and had to wait until we were in the lower 48 to treat myself to my cup of joe.  Funny how I picked the Coffee Cafe’ stamp set this week for the hop.  Enjoy my share and know that I am probably sipping my coffee as your read my blog.  Today we have a sketch challenge and I am loving this new set and matching designer series paper that matches.

Stampin’ Up! “Affectionately Yours” meets “Eastern Beauty” Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, The end of May is the closing of the current catalog at Stampin Up.  That means just a few more cards using some of my old favorites before I welcome in some wonderful new products in June.  Today I am playing with the Affectionately Yours Designers Series Paper one last time before it retires.  My share today also has a small sneak peek of what is coming in the new catalog, the new stamp set Eastern Beauty.

Here is the sketch:

I turned my card from vertical to horizontal today and added ribbon in place of the two strips of paper.  That is what I love about a sketch, you can literally copy the sketch or use it as a jumping off point to create your design.

Here is another card.  It is exactly the same except for the sentiment. I made over half a dozen different sentiment designs and just could not settle on just one.  For the blog I decided to keep it simple because the paper is so busy. The card below is one of the other designs. Which one do you like best? Simple or more detailed?
