Inky Friends Love It. Live It. Share It.


The Inky Friends have taken the new Occasions catalog cover statement to heart, because we love it, and live it, and we're sharing it too! That's the theme for this hop, so be prepared for some fun ideas! If you are hopping from the beginning, then you just landed here from the very talented Sharleen's blog, Stamp With Shar, where she featured Petal Palette. I love that suite, and she made it shine! Just keep clicking on the links at the bottom of each blog to take the whole tour.


I decided to focus on Beautiful Day (on pg. 26), because the bold blossom and butterfly images gave me the opportunity for coloring, and you know how I love to color! Both of these cards have also been combined with items from the Sale-A-Bration brochure, too. Everything Stampin' Up! makes coordinates so well!

For the first card, the blossom was stamped in Memento ink so I could color it with Stampin' Blends. (I cut an extra leaf because I thought the one leaf looked lonely, LOL.) The greeting is from the Celebrate You Thinlits (a SAB item), and I think it pairs nicely with the boldness of the blossom. Because of the strong image and greeting, I thought it best to keep the card CAS and not add embellishments.

That gorgeous silver striped DSP in the background is from the Springtime Foils Specialty DSP that is part of the SAB Second Release starting Feb. 16th!

The second card features the butterfly heat embossed in gold on vellum. The trio of dots in the stamp set was heat embossed in clear behind the butterfly, and the greeting (also from the Celebrate You Thinlits) stands out on the Garden Trellis embossed background. That Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon is also a SAB item.
