INKspired Blog Hop #16

Welcome to the INKspired blog hop. We haven't had one for a little while due to Anzac weekend and also because of the South Pacific Stampin' UP! convention which was held in the Gold Coast, QLD. Those of us who attended the convention have been busily making our swaps for it which have kept us very occupied indeed over the past couple of weeks.
Welcome back to my blog. Hope you enjoyed visiting the talented Barbara Williams before hopping onto my blog.
With the excitement of a upcoming new annual catalogue ( and boy is it exciting! ) comes the sadness with the loss of some of your favourite stamp sets and in-colours from the previous catalogue.So this sketch today featured one of my favourite stamp sets which never failed to provide the wow factor with every use. It is floral, it is perfect for Mother's Day and it uses the effective 2-step stamping technique. Have you guessed which one it is yet? If you guessed Stippled Blossoms then you are correct!!!
Here is this week's sketch:
So I made two versions of this only by changing the sentiment. I made one for my mother in law using the mother's day stamp in the occasions catty and I also made an exact copy for a friend's birthday using a happy birthday greeting which I will show you here. That is what I love about owning sets with lots of different sentiments. You can change the occasion with one little stamp without having to design a brand new card each time.
Here is my finished product. Hope you enjoy the use of the beautiful stampset Stippled Blossoms.




I have also used some of my favourite ribbon on this card. Unfortunately this is retiring soon as well. It is is the 3/8" Stiched Satin Ribbon. Although it is sad that it is retiring it actually only the ribbon in the 2014-2106 In-Colours that are retiring not the actual type of ribbon. Excitedly the ribbon still features in the upcoming catalogue but in other colours. Isn't that cool? Don't forget you have up to the end of 1st June, 2015 to order any of these items that are retiring while stocks last!!!
