INKspired x Pinkies: Congratulations - Stampin' Up! Everything Is Rosy

Today is a really exciting day, you are either hopping over from Teneale’s blog or if you are a regular to my mayhem then you picked the best day to stop by! As you will all know I’m loving the Everything is Rosy Product Medley; it’s everything you could possibly ask for in one box. Well I’m not the only one who is loving it. To celebrate the INKspired & Pinkies are joining together in an epic Blog Hop.

For my project, I really wanted to showcase the floral stamps. There are just precious and such a unique design. I started by taking a piece of Melon Mambo Card Stock measuring 9.7cm x 14cm and coordinating Melon Mambo Ink, I choose not to stamp direct onto the card stock because this can be really intense. I stamped off just once to give the card that softer effect for this ground. 

I think what makes this Product Medley extra is the colour combination, I personally would have never paired Melon Mambo and Night Of Navy, like who would? Well Stampin’ are incredible and give us the opportunities to go outside of our comfort zone. This colour combination is better seen  than explained which is why there is pre made embellishments (you can get crafting start away). The embellishments also mean extra little bits for us to be frugal with! I used some of the little foiled dots from one of the frames to add a little something extra to this card.

Now there’s only one way to go from here and that’s over to Narelle Macey’s blog, I won’t lie to you a spent a good few hours yesterday scrolling through her blog and I honest don’t regret a single minute. She’s very talented; click the button below to hop over.

I’ve got a lot of different things to be getting on with now; new catalogues will be going out with a little thank you card... which has lot of heat embossing. Why do I do it to myself? I’ll power through and I just hope my customers open it with a smile.

  5. Martin, I have to admit its the first time I heard of you, your got me in, I am going to check out your blog more. I remember thinking even though I love Melon Mambo I wasn't that keen with the Night of Navy. Love your stamping on the Melon Mambo after stamping off. Thank you so much for hopping with us.
