Stampin' Up! Sweet & Precious ~ Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I'm excited to be joining the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop today.  I love being a part of these fun Blog Hops with other stampers sharing what we love and create!  Links to all the other blog posts for this hop are near the end of this post! - be sure to check them out! Hopefully you will be as inspired as I always am seeing what everyone else creates for this month's challenge.

This month's challenge was to create a card using the colors in the photo below.  There were SO MANY great options for this card.  I can't wait to see what the rest of the stampers in this hop decided to use.  For me, I decided that a few of these colors were absolutely perfect for a quick card featuring Sweet & Precious stamps by Stampin' Up!

The colors in this challenge are: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Granny Apple Green, Crumb Cake and Azure Afternoon. I used all of them except Crushed Curry (but I was very tempted to add a sunflower to the inside of the card to get that in. lol)

To begin, I stamped the sloth image with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and colored it with Stampin' Blends.  Then, I used the 2nd largest square from Stylish Shapes Dies to cut it out.  While I had my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine out, I embossed a panel of Early Espresso Cardstock with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. 

The Granny Apple Green Cardstock was cut slightly larger than the embossed panel to brighten up the card a little.  To adhere the ribbon to the card, place Tear & Tape along all the edges of the ribbon, then adhere to the card.  The sentiment, stamped in Granny Apple Green, and the sloth square were attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Thank you for visiting my blog today.  I hope you are leaving inspired!  Click the image below to hop along to the next blog for more inspiration. 

Happy Stamping!
