Wishing You a Speedy Recovery Happy Little Things Card. Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop May 2024

  Good Evening Everyone,

Today I'm taking part int he Stamping INKspirations Monthly Blog Hop and our theme for this month is a sketch layout.

I love a Sketch, it helps focus an idea - but you have the flexibility to make it your own. I swayed away for copying the sketch exactly a little by creating a horizontal card and using one less strip (the sentiment) 


Petunia Pop Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"


2024-2026 In Color DSP 

Pretty in Pink

1pc - 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"


Take the Petunia Pop card stock and fold along the score line to create your card base, adding the Basic White piece to the inside and the DSP panel to the card front.

Ink up the Wishing and You outline images in Petunia Pop ink and stamp onto some scrap basic white. Use the solid word stamp to fill the word in using Pretty in Pink ink. Carefully fussy cut out all the letters.

Using another scrap piece of Basic white and the banner die from Happy Little Things and run it through your Cut & Emboss Machine. Stamp the sentiment in Petunia Pop ink.

Add dimensionals to all the cut out letters and the banner.

Arrange the banner straight, and then the letters to create your sentiment - I added them a little higgledy piggledy to add a little more interest.

Finally add a few Rhinestone Jewels for a little bling!

I love how this card turned out - It's easy and would work with so many colour combinations.

Please do take a few minutes to continue through the hop and check out all the other projects that have been designed following this sketch layout.
