Ink.Stamp.Share Showcase Blog Hop...

Good afternoon and welcome to the Ink.Stamp.Share Showcase Blog Hop.  I have taken a rest from the Christmas crafting to share a birthday duo with you.  I have several family birthdays in December so it is always a nice welcome break from the Christmas craft (as much as I love it!).

For my penultimate class for 2022 we used the beautiful Abigail Rose suite.  I adore this suite and the Designer Series Paper is amazing with so many images you can colour in or leave as they are, it is truly stunning.

I decided to use the tulip paper for my projects today.  I have mixed it with the beautiful Petal Pink stripe paper.  The only sad thing is that they are on the reverse of each other so I then got torn which side to show off!

I started off with a simple square of the tulip DSP and very lightly watercoloured the flowers and leaves in Petal Pink and Pear Pizzazz ink.  Once dry I cut a strip from the left hand side and flipped it over to reveal the stripes.  I love the simplicity of this card whilst it also being very striking.  I then made a matching envelope from more DSP.

The inside required a little dressing up too, how pretty do Early Espresso and Petal Pink look together!

Then to the gift.  I created this gorgeous box to hold a little gift which came unpackaged and needed some tlc.

I followed exactly the same colours for the box and kept it nice and simple.  I love how the stripes compliment the dark tulip paper.  I also love this sentiment which is taken from the Graceful Tiles stamp set.

Here are the projects together, ready to gift.

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else is showcasing with us today.  You can follow the hop by clicking on the next blog button below.

Have a great day,
