Stampin’ Up! Nature’s Prints Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our hop we have a sketch challenge.  The Natures Prints stamp set and coordinating Sun Prints DSP  were a great choice for this challenge.  I love the organic feel of the leaves in the stamp set and the paper is gorgeous with all the deep blue tones.  This easy, fast  design could be done in any color. If blue is not your color, how about Just Jade or Parakeet Party?  Any of your favorite colors would work.  Try a few colors and let me know what your favorite is.

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream Card for the Happy Inkin” Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, today for our blog we have a sketch challenge.  With this sketch there is lots of space for some big stamping and the Daffodil Daydream stamp set seemed the perfect stamp set to create a springtime card.  My focus for this card too was to keep it simple.  Sometimes there is not time to spend hours on one card and with this design, simplicity was the main focus.  (No “Kristi” bow or extras on this card)  and with the Daffodil Daydream stamp set this design works!

The Sketch:

Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Daydream:
