Spring is Coming!! - Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop


Welcome!! Annette here for those of you who are new to my blog.  This is a BRAND NEW Group of stampers and an Exciting new Blog Hop Group!!! So Excited to be asked by Angie MacKenzie to participate!! Grab your favourite drink..sit back and hop along to see all the Gorgeous Inkspiration we have planned for you!!

Easter or Spring is this month's theme!

Spring to me is all about the sun shining for days at time, birds chirping happily in the mornings, and watching the world turn green and my gardens come to life.  And as we prepare  for Spring the grocery stores fill up with all the spring flowers, hyacinth, tulips, easter lilies and hydrangea's. The Hydrangea Haven Suite recently arrived in a brown box delivery and I can't believe I was not going to buy it!! I have been having so Much Fun!! If you check out my Facebook live this week I made 4 cards.  The paper is gorgeous and so is the Stamp set and dies.  So enough is what I made for you today.

As I was watercoloring I thought I would put a soft wash of soft seafood over one of the die cuts to imitate a white hydrangea.  Have you ever noticed the hint of green?  To add little dimension I also used a sponge dauber to add more colour.  
The White layer is 4 1/8 x 5 3/8" and I stamped a hydrangea in the top left corner and bottom right corner.  The horizontal piece is die cut using the ornate frames dies and I put a piece of Soft Seafoam cardstock.  The center piece is a scalloped rectangle of soft seafoam and a rectangle cut to fit so that I could emboss it with the Parisan Embossing folder.  The stem and leaves have been sponge daubered with soft seafoam ink.  The bow is crinkled white seam binding.  I wrapped it twice around the band and then I coloured 2 extra piece of ribbon with a mint macaron blender is light and the other is dark and then I added polka dot tulle ribbon.  The sentiment is thank you and it is on a punched out circle, the sun was shining so bright when I took this photo it is hard to see!! Welcome Spring!!

I hope you enjoyed my card today and it has inspired you to stamp and create.

  7. This is also wonderful for keeping your scalp and strands hydrated, especially if you've been using The Macujo Method, which includes a lot of drying treatments that might irritate your skin. Cocamide MEA: Because of its capacity to penetrate the many levels of hair strands, this is derived from coconut oil and is found in most hair follicle detox shampoos.5 inches. So, once the THC metabolites get embedded in your hair follicles, these may show up on a test conducted within the next three months! That is why, of all the different types of drug tests, the hair follicle test is the most difficult to pass. The pills contain a powerful formula that will work to eliminate all toxins within the body, not just THC. The ingredients within these detox pills are completely natural and contain no fillers, animal products, or synthetics.
