In-Colour- May Creativity Abounds Blog Hop

Welcome to Creativity Abounds Blog Hop.   We are a group of very keen Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that are coming together to share our creative ideas with you.  We are happy that you can join us and hope that we can Inspire you to make creations of your own.

In-Colours & Expressions in Ink

The Theme for our Blog Hop this month is “In-Colour” & I have made a gift pack of Birthday Cards using the 5 In-Colours – Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Evening Evergreen, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya.

I also used the Artistically Inked Bundle (stamps and dies) along with Adhesive-backed sequins from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera pack and the In-Colour Ribbons.
