Stampin' Up! Share a Milkshake ~ Ink & Inspiration

 Stampin Up Share a Milkshake Judith Patterson

Hey Stampers & Friends!  Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop.  I'm excited to be part of this fun and creative group sharing stamping ideas with you today!

Our color challenge and photo inspiration for this month can be found in the photo below.  I LOVE all these gorgeous bright colors, not to mention, THE BEACH! I am in desperate need of some beach time.  For now, these serene colors, this restful photo, and cheery ice cream card will suffice.

This is just such a fun color scheme, I truly do love to create with most of these, a lot!  Petal Pink is not my favorite of the pinks, but it's not terrible and works perfectly for my spoon.  Yellows are not my usual favorite, but I find myself reaching for Lemon Lolly ALL.THE.TIME.  It's just the perfect soft shade of yellow.

More and more, I'm a fan of simple card layouts and this one is pretty simple.  Only one, albeit large, stamp... and the rest was piecing together die cut shapes.  Heat embossing the sentiment gives this card a more finished look.  Plus, it's just fund to watch that embossing powder melt! 

I can't wait to see what the rest of our group did with this color & photo challenge!  Between the two, I'm already dreaming of having ice cream while sitting on a flawless beach somewhere.

Well, I'm off to check out the rest of this Blog Hop.  The links are below, so you can follow along!

Happy Stamping!
