Layers Of Blue!


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for May 2017. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our 2017 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are “stepped up” by using textures or fun techniques. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects

Hello Inkers!
My texture project for today’s hop includes several lovely Layers Of Blue!

 Layers Of Blue! Inker's Workshop - Pals Blog Hop May 2017

Today’s project is made entirely of Dapper Denim & Whisper White!

One of the reasons I chose Dapper Denim is so I could use this great scrunchy ribbon
one last time, sadly it retires at the end of May.

Layers Of Blue! Inker's Workshop 2017 texture details

Did you count the layers?

There are eight layers to this card, that may seem like a lot, but each one is in small doses,
so it doesn’t look too heavy when put together. If each layer were large in size, it would
tend to be overwhelming.

Let’s start from the bottom, shall we…
• 1st layer, card base (of course), is Whisper White Thick card stock.
• 2nd layer, is the blue brick. using the Brick Wall embossing folder, edges torn.
• 3rd layer, a piece of 3″ x 4 1/2″ stamped with the largest splatter from the
Touches Of Texture stamp set, in Dapper Denim, of course.
• 4th layer, the long background stamp from the same set, with torn, inked edges.
I forgot to get a pic while adding layers (oops!) but, if you look closely under the doily, you
can see the edges peeking out.
• 5th layer, doily with edge cut off, sponged with ink.
• 6th layer, banner stamped with greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set, edges inked.
• 7th layer, stamped flower from Touches Of Texture stamp set, cut out with Stitched Shapes
Framelits Dies, popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals (my fav!), and a small rhinestone for a touch of bling!
• 8th and final layer, Dapper Denim 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon, tied in a knot.

The brick looked a little …well, blah…so I added a few smears of  white Craft Stampin’ Ink
around the edges and grout lines, with a Sponge Dauber, and that pulled it in perfectly!.

A little ink on the envelope flap is always a good thing!

Have A Fabulous Day!

  1. Love the way that you focused on just the “blues” – a dramatic and classic feel…and the envelope, the perfect finishing touch!

  2. Love, love, LOVE!!!!! your project 🙂 Dapper Denim is one of my favorite colors and it works great with your technique and contract with Whisper White. Thanks for sharing.
