My Inky Friends Creativity Is Calling Blog Hop: Rustic Retreat

Welcome to the Lily Ink Pad stop on the My Inky Friends Creativity is Calling Blog Hop! We've gathered together this month to showcase the new stamp sets and other products from the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog, just released June 4. Did you just come from Shar's work with Floral Essence? Maybe you came from Cindy's Free as a Bird? Or perhaps you are starting here. No matter how you got here, enjoy my post and then click next or previous to move on in a big loop of blog posts!



I've chosen to use the Rustic Retreat Stamp Set, which Mary Polcin (of Shawano) helped design as part of her 2 Million Dollars in Sales Award. She wanted to reflect life in the Northwoods with a Wisconsin deer. I love it!



For my first card, I used the Birch Background in Early Espresso on Gray Granite Cardstock. I am in love with it. I stamped the images in Memento Ink and then colored using my Blends. I layered them and added a Happy Father's Day sentiment inside. Not difficult, but perfect for my own dad.



My second card was created because I wanted to play around and color. I used a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of cardstock and stamped a scene. I then used my Blends to color. I added a Happy Birthday sentiment. 


My cards are quick and simple this month- as that's an ok card for my supportive Dad!

That's all I have for now, but as the summer goes on, I hope to be creating a lot!
