Stampin' Up! Handwritten for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to our weekly blog hop. This week Amy gave us a sketch challenge and I hope you will be excited to see all the different cards that our team members have created. But, first let's take a look see at the sketch and what I created...please!

Here is what I created...


I began with a Powder Pink card base. I stamped a mat of Whisper White with the Handwritten stamp in Powder Pink. I adhered that to the card front. I then cut two banners from the Tropical Escape Designer Series Paper and adhered those to each other and then to the mat.

I cut a circle from the Floral Romance Designer Series Paper (the vellum pattern) and then a circle from plain vellum. On that I stamped a sentiment from Floral Frames using Fresh Fig ink. Because the ink was so juicy, I was able to sprinkle Clear Emboss powder over it and heat set it. I adhered it to the floral vellum with mini dimensionals. I added three pearls to make it look like a design behind the pearl!

Now for the inside...


I used my Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Write Marker to ink up the sentiment that is attached to the koi from the All the Good Things stamp set. I added the Happy Graduation in Fresh Fig. That is from the Well Said stamp set. I finished the mat by punching each corner with the Detailed Trio punch. Marsha has an Occasions Challenge at Watercooler Wednesday. I've been waiting a long time for this particular graduation and it happens in May!

Since my card is mainly pink, I'm also playing at Creations In Pink. If you love pink, that is the place for you to visit!
