Welcome to this months Creative Inking Blog Hop! This month we are featuring a sketch challenge. Sketch Challenges are great – especially when you are in a little bit of a creative challenge. Here is the sketch we are working with;
This blog hop occurred at the perfect time for this sketch challenge as I was preparing for the new annual catalog and was making card packets to sell with my remaining designer series papers. So, I have a ton of 1″ strips of DSP. Thus I had a hard time deciding which ones to use for this hop. Hope you like the ones I chose!
The Daisy Delight bundle is what I chose for this card. This bundle will be retiring at the end of May – but the Daisy Delight stamp set and the Daisy punch will continue – just not the 10% savings when you purchase as a bundle.
The Delightful Daisy designer series paper is the perfect match for this bundle. It has been one of my favorite papers. In fact, the Daisy Delight class I offered to my customers was uber popular. The tutorial is still available here.
The Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper makes this card have a rich feel with the jewel tone colors set off by the subtleness of the blue. The coordinating stamp set for the Whole Lot of Lovely paper is called Lots of Love and it is retiring. If you haven’t yet checked out the Last Chance list, you can see it here.
The retiring items on this card are;
- Lots of Love stamp set
- Tangerine Tango
- Soft Sky ribbon
- Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper
This card also features the Whole Lot of Lovely designer series paper. I took a little liberty with this card moving the focal point to the bottom of the card front. It certainly switches things up just a bit. The greeting comes from the One Big Meeting stamp set which is also retiring. And I am sad to say the Black solid Baker’s twine is retiring too.
If you are wanting more retiring inspiration, I have been sharing a Goodbye Tour – here are the items featured;
- Garden in Bloom
- Butterfly Basics
- Rose Wonder
- Definitely Dahlia
- Watercolor Wings
- Daisy Delight
- Birthday Blooms
- Pop of Paradise
- Happy Celebrations
