Let’s Set Sail for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – July 2022- Scene and Color Inspiration

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!
