Translucent Florals for the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop-September 2023

Hello fellow stampers! You are visiting with Theresa McEntee-author of Theresa’s Treasures Paper Crafts. I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop today. There are several of us- you will find the list to follow the hop at the end of my blog post. Please stop by and visit everyone!

The Ink & Inspiration Challenge this month is both an sketch & a color challenge. I was inspired by the sketch primarily because I was already playing with the Translucent Florals Bundle and I could envision using the images in the sketch. This bundle can be found in the Stampin’ Up! 2023 Holiday Mini Catalog.

And this bundle has a coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) only available in the Online Exclusives. The Delightful Floral DSP has vibrant colors and gorgeous designs. I also couldn’t wait to try out the Online Exclusive Gold Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper!

These colors & designs just make me smile. I love flowers and plants. My house is filled with plants and my front yard is filled with flowers!

The Gold Adhesive-Backed Glimmer Paper was so easy to use. Stamping the flowers on vellum cardstock was a little tricky. Using the Heat Tool to help set the ink helped. Also using tweezers to move the flowers helped me avoid getting ink on my fingers, too much! Later I learned a Hot Tip from my Accountability Partner, Christy Gridley, that using Clear Emboss Powder over the ink makes it so you won’t get the ink all over the place.

For the inside, I stamped the images on Basic White cardstock. Much easier!

If you would like more information on how to make this card for yourself, let me know in the comments.

Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 30 years. I am a retired Family Physician. I love having time now to create and craft, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator more than 5 years and am having a blast! Not only do I get to craft, I meet new friends from all over the world! Crafting gives me something positive to do and to share with others. I love to have my monthly Zoom Card Making Classes so others can craft with me. I have so much fun creating the cards for others to make! My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper in order to help others get started stamping on their own at home. If you need information to get started, look for my first blogs. My more recent posts have been cards and projects for Blog Hops and challenges. Stop by to see my projects and those of folks from around the world! Add more creativity to your life today!
