Quiet Meadow - Inspire INK colour challenge blog hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the InspireINK group and we have a colour challenge - Bumblebee, Misty Moonlight and Soft Succulent. I have used the lovely gingham dsp from the Pansy Petals and the Meadow dies. Let me show you how I made it.


1 piece of thick basic white card stock 5 7/8" x 8 1/4"
1 piece of soft succulent card stock 3 7/8" x 5 5/8" 
Scraps of bumblebee, misty moonlight and soft succulent for the die cuts
1 piece of dsp 3 5/8" x 5 3/8"
6" piece of soft succulent ribbon
Misty moonlight ink
Quiet Meadow stamp set
Meadow dies
Stampin Cut and Emboss machine
Simply scored
Bone folder
Multipurpose adhesive


On the long side score the thick basic white at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Die cut the flowers, butterflies and the sentiment label from the scraps of coloured card.

Adhere the dsp to the soft succulent mat layer and then adhere the flowers and butterflies in place.

Wrap the ribbon around this layer and fix on the back with some sticky tape, then fix this layer to the card front.

Stamp the sentiment on the label using misty moonlight ink and I have stamped the large floral image on the inside of the card.  Add the sentiment over the ribbon using dimensionals.

I hope that you like my card and will give it a try.
