Stampin' Up! Positive Thoughts for the Happy Inkin' Blog Hop


Welcome to another HITBH! If you came from Mary's site, I'm glad you are continuing the hop. If you haven't then I hope you'll continue to hop using my links below. No matter what, I'm glad you're here. Today we have a sketch challenge and here is what I created for it...

and here is our sketch...
I stamped a panel of Basic White with Daffodil Delight Ink splatters from the Daffodil Daydream Stamp Set. I created a mask for the butterfly from the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set (retiring) and stamped it three times right side up and three times upside down. I felt like I was creating a Rorschach Test!

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set in Bumblebee Ink (a retiring color) and cut it out with a die from Scalloped  Contours. I cut the scalloped backing with the largest die in that set. I used Bumblebee Cardstock for that. I adhered the art panel to the scalloped piece with liquid glue but wish I had used Dimensionals. The sentiment is adhered with Dimensionals. Three retiring 2020-2022 In Color Square Gems finished the front.
I love monochromatic cards AND I love yellow. 

The inside is quite simple with a sentiment and the butterfly from Positive Thoughts. The sentiment is stamped in Bumblebee Ink and the butterfly in Daffodil Delight.
