Hello everyone! I’m so glad that you’re visiting today and hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop again this month! We are sharing inspiration from this lovely summer Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. You will find the list to follow along at the end of my blog post.
I was inspired mostly by the colors and used all of them! I really liked the idea of the sailboat too.
Creating the Card Yourself
Start by putting the Rays of Light stamp in the Stamparatus. Using a Sponge Dauber, apply the ink starting with Daffodil Delight Ink around the center of the rays. Next apply Mango Melody Ink in a circle around the Daffodil Delight Ink. Follow with Poppy Parade Ink. Finish up by applying Blackberry Bliss Ink on the edges of the stamp. Huff on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp onto a 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White card stock. Repeat this process on a second 3 3/4 x 5 inch Basic White CS. You will use the second stamped Rays of Light card piece for the inside of the card.
In Smoky Slate Ink, stamp some birds around the center of the rays of light. Use the Smoky Slate Ink to stamp the sentiment “Adventure Awaits” onto a 1 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch strip of Basic White card stock. Use the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut out the sentiment.
Stamp the sailboat in Blackberry Bliss Ink onto a scrap of Basic White card stock. Use the Sailboat Builder Punch. Stamp each sail in Blackberry Bliss Ink and use the Sailboat Builder Punch. You will end up with 2 sails and a boat with a mast and flag.
Stamp the water in Pacific Point Ink onto a 2 x 6 inch Basic White card stock. Fussy cut.
Putting it all together
Adhere the Rays of Light card piece to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Blackberry Bliss card stock. Then adhere the combo to the Pacific Point card stock card base (4 1/4 x 11 inches scored at 5 1/2 inches).
Trim a 1/2 inch strip off the right-hand edge of the second copy of the stamped Rays of Light. Adhere this to a 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White card stock. There will be a border around it. Adhere the card piece to the inside panel of the Pacific Point card stock card base.
Trim the stamped water to 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the water to the bottom of the card front.
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment. Finish by adhering the boat followed by the sails-all on Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I hope this card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day. There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee-USA. Be sure not to miss anyone!

Step 1- 3D Technique
Start by using the White Craft Ink pad to drag it across both Shaded Spruce card stock card pieces embossed with the Whimsical Woodland 3D embossing folder. The “before and after” is pictured above. The White Craft Ink really helps the tree design pop! Set aside to dry.

Take the center out of both of the Basic White card stock Fabulous Frame die cuts to stamp on.
Use Soft Suede Ink to stamp the “trees for sale” sign on one of the Basic White card stock card pieces. Stamp a sign on a piece of the Masking Paper. (I used a pink sticky note so you could see what I was masking a little better)
Fussy cut the sign from the Masking Paper. Cover the trees for sale sign on the stamped card piece with the Masking Paper sign.

Use Memento Ink to stamp the string of lights. Color the lights with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.
Stamp some snowflakes and the paw prints in Balmy Blue Ink.
On a scrap of Basic White card stock, stamp the dog in Soft Suede Ink. Use the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to add some eyes, a nose and some spots to the dog. Fussy cut. (I cut the bottom jaw off because my dog did not look right with the jaw on)
Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the dog to the scene.
Stamp the sentiment “Christmas Greetings” in Real Red Ink on the 3/4 x 3 inch Basic White card stock strip.
Step 5-Stamping the Inside

I also used the Label Me Fancy Punch to round the end of the sentiment strip
Tip #1: to get the best results with stamping a stamp with a large solid area like the ladybug and leaf, use the Stamparatus so you can stamp over the image a few times.
Tip #2: Be mindful of how you position the stamps for the ladybug body and wings on the Basic White CS so you can use the punch.
Stamp the body of the ladybug in Memento Ink onto Basic White CS.
Using a second piece of Basic White CS stamp the ladybug wings in Real Red Ink. Use Memento Ink to stamp the spots.
On another piece of Basic White CS stamp the leaf in Parakeet Party Ink. You will need to Fussy Cut the leaf.
Use Real Red Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the 3/4 x 2 1/2 inch Basic White CS.
Insert the left end of the sentiment strip into the left side of the Label Me Fancy Punch to round the edge. Cut a banner edge on the right end.
Adhere the Real Red CS to the Basic White CS card base. Then adhere the Basic Black followed by the pieces of DSP.
To make the ladybug appear as though it were flying, use a Stampin’ Dimensional on the tail end and adhesive on the head.
For the wings, use the Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on the tips and adhere the top of the wings to the ladybug body with adhesive.
The leaf is adhered by using a Stampin’ Dimensional on the base and adhering the tip with adhesive.
Adhere the sentiment.
Apply the Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels as desired.
