Stampin’ Up! Bottled Happiness Card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, I am back to blogging after a month off while we traveled to visit family and friends the month of May.  Today for our hop we have a color challenge at least using 3 of the newest in-colors.  Our choices were Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party, Sweet Sorbet, Orchid Oasis and Starry Night.  The colors are all so beautiful but I choose, Sweet Sorbet, Parakeet Party and Tahitian Tide for my color combination.  I also paired this color combo with the Bottled Happiness stamp set and matching punch.  Enjoy the hop and please stop by our team members blogs today and see what they created with the color challenge.

The challenge:

  • On the art piece, stamp the flower bouquet from the Bottled Happiness stamp set in Sweet Sorbet Ink above the Tahitian Tide stamped bottle
  • Stamp the leaf image from the Bottled Happiness in Parakeet Party lining it up with the floral stamped image
