In Colours 2020-2022 - Touches of Ink Blog Hop

 Hi Everyone,

Today I am taking part in the Touches of Ink Blog Hop and I am using the Pierced Bloom dies and the Sentimental Swirls stamp set in 4 of the 5 In Colours (I don't like Cinnamon Cider so never bought that one!). This set of In-Colours will retire when the new Annual Catalogue is launched in May and a new set will replace them. It's sad to see them go as they are so bright and vibrant but I am excited to see what they will be replaced by.


1 piece of Misty Moonlight card 5 7/8" x  1/4"
2 pieces of basic white card 3 7/8" x 5 5/8"
Scraps of Magenta Madness, Bumblebee and Just Jade card for the die cuts
Misty Moonlight ink
Magenta Madness ink
Sentimental Swirls stamp set
Pierced Bloom dies
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Simply Scored
Paper Snips
Bone Folder
Multipurpose Adhesive
Mini Glue Dots
Iridescent Rhinestones


On the long side score the misty moonlight card at 4 1/8" and fold and burnish to make the card base.

Randomly stamp the large swirl in misty moonlight on one of the pieces of white card (see picture).

Die cut some of the larger flowers and flower centres from the scraps of magenta madness and bumblebee card and some leaves from the just jade.  I have added magenta centres to bumblebee flowers and vice versa.  Arrange the flowers and leaves across the centre of the card diagonally, some glued down and some on dimensionals to give some variety.

Stamp some magenta butterflies around the flowers and then adhere this piece to the card front.

Stamp more butterflies on the remaining piece of white card and adhere to the inside of the card.  Stamp a sentiment on a scrap of white card and trim with paper snips if required.  Add this in among the flowers using a mini glue dot on one end and a dimensional on the other.

Sprinkle with rhinestones and the card is complete.
