InkOn3 Blog Hop

Welcome! It's an exciting week over at InkOn3. It's time for a new release!!!
And to kick it off, we're having a blog hop! Guaranteed, you will see lots of beautiful projects. 

This new release features Hollyhocks 4x6 stamp set and coordinating Hollyhock dies.



How beautiful is this hollyhock stamp and die set??? It's just gorgeous, isn't it? And the sentiments and fonts are amazing. I know I'll reach for this often, even just for those. So, let's get started!

Comment on each blog post to be entered into a drawing for two 25.00 gift certificates.
The giveaway will close June 20th at noon CST. The winners will be posted at the InkOn3 blog.

Here's what I created for today. Hope you get some inspiration.



I wanted the outside of my card to be plain Jane, you'll see why. I pulled out an old embossing folder that had a spot to stamp a sentiment. I trimmed it down and matted it with silver glitter cardstock. I stamped using Juicy embossing ink and backed it with the same silver. I foam mounted it and added a few silver gems.

Ready to see the inside? First, I get a lot of inspiration from YouTube crafters. Jennifer McGuire did a shadow box card awhile back and I loved it! So, kudos to her...I copied, lol.

This is the reason for a somewhat plain card front. I wanted it to "go with" the inside sentiment...are moments to remember. And hopefully they'll remember this inside, lol. I kinda wanted a surprise when they open it.


I stamped my image on watercolor paper and embossed with white embossing powder. I then pulled out my new Avery Elle liquid watercolors. I LOVE them! So, I painted this in several layers, building up the color saturation. I then went around the entire floral with pale blue for some sky.
I then created the card base per Jennifer's instructions. It's easy! I'll link to her post for you to see.


See the box style at the top? It folds up just fine, but it really does look like a shadow box! It's fun, and a change of pace to a regular card. Perfect for the recipient to leave on display for a bit. 


I covered the "box" front with some glitter paper from my stash. I stamped a sub-sentiment to go with the card front and mounted it with a bit of foam tape. Scattered around some silver gems and it's finished!

This stamp set is keeper for me! I love florals and this one is stunning!

Head over to the next person in line and don't forget to comment! That's a great giveaway!
