INKspired Blog Hop 22

Hi and welcome to INKspired #22!  Did you get here via Louise Sharp or are you starting here? Either way, grab a cuppa, sit back and be amazed! I hope you are enjoying our fortnightly challenges and getting some INKspiration from our team of talented stampers. This weeks sketch is amazing!  I think it's one of the most versatile sketches we've had yet, as you can tell by the team's' cards this week! I can see so many "big sentiment" cards being made with this, especially Christmas!

As you can see I have made another baby card.  Firstly because they are so cute and secondly because  the "Big News" stamp set has the biggest sentiments that I own.  I am totally in love with the colour, Lost Lagoon, it pairs so well with Pool Party and I'm sure it loves me too because every time I open the stamp pad I end up with lost lagoon fingers or "spots" on my hands!  Luckily it hasn't yet ended up in my lap (touch wood!).  I embossed the Lost Lagoon panel with the Lucky Stars embossing folder, you can't see it very well but it is there.

I have used a silver foil layer under the Lost Lagoon. It's not that easy to see in the top photo but you can see it in the second photo.  The "Cherry On Top" paper stacks are so cute, Kabrina has used some of the other designs on her invitations, this one has spots and little squiggles - C.U.T.E.! You can also peak at the embossed stars on the inside (I only did two corners of embossing on the inside)


Maree McIntosh  next up, I can't wait to see what creation she has this week!
