Crafty Collaborations 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Blog Hop Banner | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

Happy Friday, y'all!  I'm so glad that you're here and hope you are having a fantastic day!  Today I am hopping with some crafty collaborators along the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog Blog Hop and we are sharing lots of inspiration from this awesome new publication.  There are several of us hopping today - you will find the list to follow along towards the bottom of my blog post - so sit back and enjoy your favorite coffee, tea, water, or smoothie as we share some handmade projects with you!

Today's Project

I fell in love with this new catalog the minute I saw the front cover...  it is such a refreshing look and makes my heart happy!  Today's card features two stamp sets that I was unable to purchase on preorder... and I knew I had to have them as they are both my style... meaning that if I were to walk into a stationery store, I would be walking out with stationery styled this way.  Honestly, I haven't purchased stationery since I've been creating cards... as I am able to create my own.  And these two stamp sets will be much loved by me!

Project Details

If you follow my Weekly Digest blog posts, you will see where my inspiration for today's card came from!  You can click here, if you want to take a look.  I love watercolor... and to think that we can have amazing stamped watercolor images now without water and the dry time, well, let's say I'm a happy stamper! 

The Artistically Inked watercolor image was inked in Daffodil Delight and stamped in the center of the Basic White cardstock layer.  The image was reinked, rotated 180˚ and stamped opposite the first stamped image.  The stamp was cleaned and inked in Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay following similar steps of stamping and rotating until the layer was completely stamped.

Originally, the Biggest Wish sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay and heat embossed with Black Stampin' Emboss Powder directly onto the stamped cardstock layer.  However, after sleeping on it, and waking up with sunshine this morning, I decided it wasn't quite the look I wanted.  I'm sure you've had days like that, right?!  I had even tried heat embossing the "FRIEND" in white, but wasn't happy with that either... so that layer became the inside layer!

I was much happier with what I decided to do this morning...  the bold sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay ink with the script sentiment heat embossed with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder on Basic White.  The panel was layered up three times and adhered to a Bermuda Bay panel.

The inside was revamped, too, to better compliment the cheerful envelope.  The three flower image was inked in Daffodil Delight and randomly stamped along the bottom edge of the Basic White card layer.  The splatter image was inked in Bermuda Bay and generation stamped randomly between the flowers.
