Stampin' Up! Petal Park ~ Casually Crafting Blog Hop

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today I'm taking part in a blog hop with the Casually Crafting Design Team!  We are an international group of Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who want to share our take on casual crafting.  We will share what we love with you monthly.  Be sure to check out the rests of the design team's projects using the links at the bottom of this post.

This month we have a color challenge, inspired by the photo below.  Such a sweet little bird!  The colors in the challenge are Pacific Point, So Saffron and Soft Suede.  Other than Pacific Point, these are not typically my 'Go To' colors.  However, I do really like this combination. 

My Stamp Set of the Week is Petal Park this week, so that's the set I'm using for this challenge, also.  Sometimes decisions are hard. (lol)  It's nice that I didn't have to decide which stamps to use, or even what colors for this card.  

I stamped the outlines in Soft Suede, then used the other colors for the fill in stamp.  I also used a couple of drops of Pacific Point Ink Refill & a tiny bit of alcohol & water to dye my ribbon blue.  It turns out the best adhesive when adhering ribbon you have dyed is Stampin' Seal or Stampin' Seal+.  A lot of trial and error went into getting it to stick well on my card and tag.  I did also attach some Stampin' Dimensionals under the tag to pop it up. 

I hope you enjoyed my card and were maybe even inspired by it.  Now, take a few minutes and 'hop' on over to the rest of the blogs in the list below!  

Happy Hopping! (and Stamping!!)
