Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. We get together the 4th Thursday of every month to bring you inspiration and fun with our color/photo challenge. We can choose to be inspired by the colors listed or the photo for each month. We hope you will be inspired, too!
Here is this month’s inspiration:
I was immediately drawn to the colors listed on the right side of the photo so that is what I chose. Here is the card I created using the Tropical Leaf stamp set and punch. This is an online exclusive and won’t be found in any catalog.
Instructions for Tropical Leaf Color Challenge Card
- Cut a Blueberry Bushel card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and score at 4 1/4″. Fold and burnish.
- Adhere 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ mat of Coastal Cabana to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ Basic White mat. Center and adhere to the front of the card base.
- Cut a piece of Basic White 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″ and stamp the stems about halfway up in Granny Apple Green ink.
- On scrap Basic White, stamp one each of the large leaves in Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral. Stamp the veins in Crumb Cake. Punch out the leaves.
- Stamp the sentiment “Thanks so much” in Coastal Cabana ink in the lower right hand corner.
- Adhere the Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight leaves flat on the card front. Pop the Granny Apple Green leaf up with dimensionals.
- Add three Blueberry Bushel gems from the Tinsel Gems Four Pack.
- Stamp a small leaf in Blueberry Bushel ink in the lower right hand corner of a 4″ x 5 1/2″ Basic White mat. Adhere to the inside.
