Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop

Hello friends! I am taking part in another blog hop created by my friend Angie at Stamping Inkspirations. We hop the second Saturday of each month. This month there are 17 of us taking part and this month's theme is to make a monochromatic card using blues.

Initially, I thought I would use the blues of the new In Colours but as I started my card, they didn't work with what was in my head. I wanted to make a tryptic using the Sun Prints DSP and the page I chose had Night of Navy as the blue. That is how I ended up with this card.

I started by choosing my piece of DSP from the Sun Prints DSP pack. I chose the piece that had the dandelions and ferns on it. I cut my strips of DSP and then matted them with pieces of Pacific Point cardstock. To be honest, it took me a while to choose Pacific Point. I kept trying to use the new blues but they just didn't work. I went with Pacific Point because I love it with Night of Navy.

I added my three pieces of matted DSP to a piece of Night of Navy cardstock using dimensionals. I wrapped a piece of White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon around this piece and tied it into a bow.  

I used a Pacific Point card base and on top of that I added a piece of Basic White cardstock. I added my Night of Navy piece to this using dimensionals.

I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Basic White cardstock using Night of Navy ink. The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp. The entire sentiment says "Thinking of You on Your Special Day" but I only wanted the top part that said Thinking of You. I used my paper snips to trim around the portion I wanted and added it to my card using dimensionals.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed my card. Click on the "next blog" button and head to Leonie Stuart's blog post to see what she has created.

Stay well and keep creating!
