Stampin' Up! Nothing's Better for the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop


Welcome to the Happy Inkin' Thursday Blog Hop. This week we have a sketch challenge.

Here's what I created for it...

I used the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set for the images and sentiments.

My card base is Just Jade cardstock. The scalloped circle is a pattern of Just Jade from the In Color 2020-2022 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. I stamped the cocktail in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored it with my Granny Apple Green, Just Jade, Polished Pink and Smoky Slate Light Stampin' Blends and a Dark Granny Apple Green. I used the Layering Circles Dies to cut out my circles. 

Using Memento ink, I stamped the "Cocktails" on a scrap of DSP I had laying on my desk. Apparently the sun had bleached it so it's a tad lighter than the circle, which made me happy! I used the Banners Pick A Punch to punch the end.

I embossed a panel of Polished Pink cardstock using the Tasteful Textile 3D EF and the Hello EF from the Thanks & Hello EF. I adhered that to the card front with liquid glue as I did the scalloped circle. I ran my Polished Pink Stamp N Write marker around the edge of the Basic White circle and adhered it with Stampin' Dimensionals. Part of the banner is adhered with liquid glue and partly with Dimensionals.

I kept the inside clean and simple...
