Stampin' Up! Zany Zebras and Sale-A-Bration 2021 Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday blog hop. You're in for a treat if you have never visited before. It's a weekly challenge and this week we have a color challenge.

I chose Old Olive, Pool Party and Early Espresso to make my card. You'll see a tad of Poppy Parade on the envelope front too.

My card base is Pool Party with a strip of wood grain DSP from the In Good Taste series. I have mats of Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Pool Party and the art panel. Measurements are listed below. I stamped the donkey outlines with Early Espresso and colored them in with my Early Espresso Watercolor Pencil and blended the color with a Blender Pen. I fussy cut one of them and adhered it to the art panel to cover up a smudge! The sentiment from Darling Donkeys (Sale-A-Bration 2021 January 5) is stamped in Old Olive as are the little doo dads.

This is the same fun fold that I did here.

The inside is simply a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Old Olive ink for the sentiments from the Zany Zebras. The party hats from the same stamp set are stamped in Old Olive, Early Espresso and Pool Party. The envelope got another piece of the wood grain DSP. 

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you'll have time to hop.
