Beautiful You Cards for blog hop

The Remarkable InkBig Blog Hop

Welcome to the Blog Hop for April 2017. This month our theme is “Retiring 2015-2017 In Colors"

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog – Cara-Lauren at, or may have come from the person previous to me in the list. If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the projects. At the moment you are visiting Cara-Lauren at

For my first ever blog hop I created two cards for you. Both use 2015-2017 In Colors.

The first card uses Mint Macaron and Tip-Top Taupe.  I made an unusual card base.

The second card uses Cucumber Crush, Delightful Dijon, Watermelon Wonder.  I made an Z-fold card base.

Techniques used:

  • Water color painting and ink pads,
    • first with Aqua Painters,
    • then with Clear Wink of Stella.
  • Altering the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper on each using different methods.
  • Stamping partial parts of the stamp on to 2nd  card.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don’t want to miss.

Remember that currently you are at my blog – Cara-Lauren at, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next in the list.
