My Inky Friends All Occasions Hop

Welcome to a new edition of the Inky Friends blog hop. This week we are featuring items from the recently released 2019 Occasions catalog. The sign ups for this hop were a couple months ago, and I immediately called dibs on the Climbing Roses bundle!

First of all, because I love roses, and the images and sentiments are so sweet. But the other HUGE draw was the Rose Trellis Thinlits. I mean look at them! The trellis is beautiful (and can be used with other stamp sets), the pierced label is gorgeous, and there's even a die for the tiny single rose. What's not to love?!

The larger group of roses was heat embossed on Shimmery White cardstock and then water colored with an Aqua Painter using Calypso Coral and Mossy Meadow.

After cutting the Basic Gray background with a Rectangle Stitched die, the greeting was heat embossed.  The trellis and colored roses were cut with their respective dies, and the whole thing was assembled, saving the roses to be popped up on dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by! Up next is Shelley over at Miss Mad Stamper, who is featuring Humming Along, another fave of mine.

Or, if you're traveling the opposite direction, the previous stop was Sara's blog, Lily's Ink Pad, where she is featuring the awesome masculine set, Geared Up Garage!


  1. Oh, Cindy! This card is stunning! I haven't done the watercoloring on shimmer paper in a long time. It's so pretty!

  2. What a beutiful card Cindy :-) I love the watercoloring. Very pretty :-)

  3. This is such a gorgeous card, Cindy! I love the colors you used!

  4. What a gorgeous card! I love the Basic Grey background with the Calypso Coral roses. I don't use that color as a base very often, but I'm gong to start now! Your water-coloring is just beautiful.

    1. Thanks, Kris! I don’t either, but it just jumped in my head to try it, and it turned out!


Thank you for visiting - I'd love to hear from you!
