Stamping Inkpirations Blog Hop – Taco Fiesta

Stamping Inkspirations Blog Header

Hello and welcome to the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop for February. We have got a colour challenge this month using So Saffron, Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis and Shaded Spruce.

So Saffron | Sweet Sorbet | Tahitian Tide | Orchid Oasis | Shaded Spruce

As soon as I saw the colours I thought of the Taco Fiesta stamp set. I created a stamped background using the large chilli image which I coloured with Sweet Sorbet and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends. Then I ink blended the entire panel with So Saffron which gave the chillies a more orangey tone.

I then took a strip of the Balmy Blue striped sheet from the Dandy Designs Designer Series Paper and went over the lines with Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis and So Saffron Stampin’ Blends. I felt the So Saffron wasn’t dark enough so again I ink blended over the So Saffron areas with a Blending Brush. Although I did go over some of the blue areas, it didn’t alter the colour greatly and I was pleased with the result.

A layered up sentiment and a small fussy cut chilli complete this spicy card. Perhaps a fun take on a Valentine’s card?!!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have enjoyed this card. For more inspiration please click on the Next Blog button to see Susan Webster’s creation.

Birthday Card with Altered Laser Cut Paper

It’s been a full week and I’m so glad that I’ve got this wonderful craft to keep me relaxed. It’s my happy place and I get a lot of joy in sharing it with you. When most of our regular activities get taken away, it’s lovely to have something we can do in the comfort of our own homes – plus it’s relaxing – so that’s a bonus.

Happy Birthday Stamp Set, How to Colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers

The Happy Birthday stamp set has been a favourite of mine from the Sale-A-Bration rewards. With coordinating dies to cut out the images, you can create your cards very easily. The laser cut background paper is from the Botanical Prints Medley. This sheet is Pretty Peacock on one side and white on the other. I coloured the white side with a Dark Pool Party Stampin’ Blend to alter the colour and this gives it more versatility.

The scalloped felt under the sentiment is actually a scrap piece from the the embellishments in the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit – no wastage. I stamped the sentiment from the Label Me Bold stamp set in Night of Navy on Coastal Cabana cardstock. This set is one of the stamp sets that have gone unnoticed a little bit in the catalogue. Those bold sentiments really pop and the background images can be used many ways.
