InspireINK Blog Hop – For a Special Lady

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s InspireINK blog hop. If you have joined me from Jill’s lovely project, you will know the theme this time is…

Please be sure to click through all the projects in the hop by clicking the next button at the bottom of this post.

So for me, every special lady deserves flowers, and what could be better than stunning orchids.

I made the orchids first using the Climbing Orchid stamp set and coordinating dies. I chose Daffodil Delight and So Saffron inks for the petals. These were put together with Multipurpose glue.

The card base was made from Whisper White card stock. A panel was embossed using the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing folder. A strip of So Saffron card was added over the top.

I added the orchids and slipped a Starburst cut from vellum behind them.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the sentiment from the Part of my Story stamp set. This was cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. I secured this with dimensionals.

Some rhinestones finished off the card with a sparkle.

Incredibly Proud

Hello Everyone,

So today’s card is for an “uplifting” theme in a Facebook challenge.

I have used the Incredible Like You stamp set. It has amazing Sentiments that we’re perfect for this project.

I used the group of lines and Soft Sea Foam ink to create the background.

I used the same ink to stamp the leaves knowing the sentiment was going at the bottom right.

I added the flower stems with Shaded Spruce ink and used Mango Melody for the flower heads.

Before adhering to the card, I added some Polka Dot Tulle. A knot was tied on the left hand side.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento ink and Die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die. This was added to the card with dimensionals.
