Inky Friends: All Occasions Blog Hop: Humming Along

Welcome to the Inky Friends Blog Hop! I love these hops! They are so much fun to see what everyone creates. The ideas are always fabulous and amazing. This month we are focusing on the items in the All-Occasions Catalog. There are some awesome products in this catalog. Oh, who am I kidding? Stampin' Up! always has awesome products!

My Inky Friends have all been linked together so you can just keep clicking forward, or backward, and see all the wonderful creations. You can see the list of bloggers HERE. If you are hopping forward, you got here from Cindy's blog, Heart's Delight Cards. Didn't Cindy do a fabulous job? You could be going backwards through the hop. In that case, you go to me from Kris's blog, Paper Fairy Kris, where Kris is highlighting the stamp set Meant To Be. Kris did an awesome job!

I chose the stamp set Humming Along to work with for this blog hop. I chose this set because of the humming bird in it. My mom was a humming bird lover. Her whole living room was filled with humming birds. My dad doesn't know what to do with all the knick-knacks that mom had. Anyway, this set is one that reminds me of my mom. I miss her everyday. This is a great way for me to remember her and share her with you, through this stamp set.

My first card is rather simple. I stamped the humming bird with Bermuda Bay and then used an Aquapainter to pull the color from the outline to color the bird. I did the same with the flower but used Flirty Flamingo and Pear Pizzazz. The bird was die cut and is popped on dimensionals.

I wanted to feature just the flower on the next card. I used the Blends to color in the flower. The Garden Trellis is on of my favorite embossing folders.

I love the looks of this last card, but then purple is my favorite color! This bird is water-colored. The tufted embossing folder adds a soft texture to the background of this card.

Of course, I had to do a double scrapbook layout with this gorgeous set. I also used some of the Floral Romance DSP for these pages. I plan to post more about these pages next week.

I hope you enjoyed my projects. You are now off to see Kris's or Cindy's projects. 

Happy Stampin'!
