Inky Friends Hidden Gems Blog Hop



Welcome to the Inky Friends Hidden Gems Blog Hop!  We're showing off some of our favorite sets that we think may be overlooked.  If you'd like to check out the list of participants, they are here: My Inky Friends Blog If you'd like to chat, our FB page, My Inky Friends is available.

You may have arrived from Betty's Bloon which she's showcasing the Window Shopping Set. I loved her bright and creative designs as well as her technique with designer series paper!

I chose the Tranquil Tulips hostess set from the annual catalog.  First, I have this card made with the Black Magic/Chalkboard technique. You simply emboss with white embossing powder and color with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers.  I also used the Celebrate You thinlits with it.



Next, I have this card stamped with Wild Wasabi and Melon Mambo cut out with the largest Lots of Labels framelit.



Finally, I thought a narrow card (which still fits in a regular A2 envelope) might be fun. I stamped, cut out and popped up the Daffodil Delight colored flowers on Dimensionals.



Now, let's continue and see Shelley's work with the Sprinkle of Life set on her Miss Mad Stamper Blog. What cute cards and great scrapbook pages!!!

Rhonda, these cards are just gorgeous! I especially love the chalk look card--so dramatic.

I love the chalkboard technique card! The black and Calypso Coral is so striking together. Using the label to frame the tulips on your second card made for a very pretty layout. But my favorite is the last narrow card with the addition of the other flowers. Pretty cards!

Love the chalk technique on the first card! Really make the blooms pop. The Garden Trellis embossed background on the second card is the perfect background for the tulips. I think my fave is the narrow card - it just fits the image so well, and I completely forgot about the other flower images in that set! Thanks for the reminder. :)

I loved that first card with the chalk technique. All your cards are pretty. Need to pull mine out. Still new, never used it yet. TFS

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers. Your cards are wonderful! The first is my favorite. You could mail any of them to me, and I would be thrilled!
