Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop - June 2021 Splish Splash!

Nigezza Creates aka Gez, Independent Stampin' Up® Demonstrator 


Thank you for visiting my blog, I really do appreciate it. Tonight I am hopping with the Stamping Inkspiraitons blog hop. The theme this month is Splish Splash ... so I took this theme and used water in my card. I created a water colour block background to this simple bright card. Not quite a rainbow but wanted something multicoloured so I used the 2021-2023 in colours. I thought this lovely bright card was perfect to celebrate Pride Month and I used masking tape to create Mr & Mr from a Mr & Mrs sentiment stamp. I shall be sending this card to my son and his partner as they celebrate their first Pride month together.

Measurements and Materials

  • Card Base - Thick Basic White card stock
    • 8 1/4" x 5 7/8"
    • Score @ 4 1/8 on the long side
  • Each clear block was tapped in a different In Colour ink pad to cover it with ink
  • They was then spritzed with water and then laid on the Basic White card stock
  • This was then die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die
  • A frame was cut from Fresh Freesia using the same Stitched Rectangle & one 2 sizes bigger to form a thick frame
  • The flower from Quiet meadow was stamped over the colour blocks in black
  • A small tag added with a sentiment

  4. Creating the background with the blocks is a great idea, and the InColors really work well together. I like the tag too.
