Welcome to the July 2022 Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. Every month we “hop” with projects created to meet a color challenge or as inspired by a photograph. This month the colors were bold and bright. Here’s the image meant to inspire us (and you!)
The card that I created in response to the color challenge is a perfect layout to use up scraps. I chose to use Blackberry Bliss, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade. I love both Pacific Point and Smoky Slate but felt that the four colors I chose worked really well together.
I chose a layout that would use up some of my scrap pieces of card stock that I save. The strips are all cut 1″ x 3 1/4″ and the Basic White mat is 5″ x 3 3/4″. I stamped each of the 1″ “scraps” of card stock with a flower from the Simply Fabulous stamp set, using the same color ink as the paper. The sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set is stamped in Poppy Parade on a Mango Melody scrap die cut with the long, thin banner from the Stylish Shapes die set. The leaf is stamped in Daffodil Delight on Daffodil Delight paper and die cut with the corresponding die, also from the Sending Smiles stamp set. I finished the card off with three Pale Papaya (you’d never know they weren’t Mango Melody if I hadn’t told you) opal rounds from the 2021-2023 In Color Opal Rounds pack of embellishments.
