Stampin’ Up! Pansy Patch Card for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hello Stampers, today for our hop I am using the Pansy Patch Stamp Set and matching Pansy Dies.  Because of our move to Kentucky, I did not get to ink up any of the new stamp sets that I purchased from the annual catalog.  So until my order comes with all the new products from the Mini Catalog, I thought I would use all my “new to me sets”  until then.  I loved cutting out all the papers and adhering the pansies together with a touch of ink blending to give the flowers some real depth.  Enjoy the hop and make sure you stop by and visit all the members of our talented team to see what they created with the sketch challenge
