INKspirations Blog Hop - Color Challenge - Feb 2022

Feb 2022 Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop - Color Challenge

Hello stamping friends,

Welcome to the February Inkspirations Blog  Hop, and this month we had a color challenge to craft with. 

Take a look.

COLOR INKSPIRATIONS for February 2022:

Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Fresh Freesia, Bumblebee and Garden Green

We were challenged to use at least 3 of the 5 colors.  For my project, I opted for three colors: Bumblebee, Garden Green, and Polished Pink.  I used the Timeless Tropical stamp set and coordinating dies, because honestly, I’m really needing some beach days! It’s been too long since I had sand between my toes, and warm sea breezes on my skin.

I really enjoy using vellum layers in my projects.  That is what I used here for my background panel.  Really easy stamping for this project too, relaxes, just like if we were at the beach right?  The sentiment tag is all die-cuts and some simple stamping as well.  Enjoy the tutorial-short I have for you, and you can find all the products and written tutorial at the bottom of this post.

Okay,  now that you have visited with me, and are thinking of the beach… it’s time to send you along to the next crafting blog.  Leave me a comment below, let me know what you think of my project today.  Then remember, leave comments for the rest of us who inspire you too.

Enjoy the next project.  You are visiting  Karen Henderson  next.  The full list of blog hoppers is also found below.

Happy Stamping,

Project Tutorial


  1. Cut a 11” x 4 ¼”  piece of Basic White cardstock. Score at5 ½ ”. Fold in half to form a card base. Burnish crease using a Bone Folder.

  2. On a piece of Vellum Cardstock that is 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the large blossom with Polished Pink and the leaf image with Garden Green.  LET IT DRY!

  3. From Basic White cardstock, 2” x 3”, die-cut the large Stitched So Sweetly Die for the sentiment.  With Bumblebee ink, stamp the weave texture from the Natural Textures stamp set, to cover the cardstock. 

  4. Die-cut from a piece of scrap Garden Green cardstock, the pineapple top and the “aloha” sentiment.

  5. On a piece of scrap Basic White, stamp the small blossom with Polished Pink ink, then color the blossom with a Blender Pen.  Now die-cut with the coordinating die.

  6. Adhere the die-cut “ALOHA” with liquid adhesive to the sentiment tag.  Then add the green die-cut leaves and the small blossom.

  7. Adhere the vellum cardstock layer to the card.  I put liquid adhesive behind the pink centers of the blossoms, and the center where the sentiment will be added.

  8. Add the sentiment tag with dimensionals.
