Get Inky! Blog Hop

If you are arriving here for Hiding In My Craft Room's weekly challenge, please click HERE.

Hi, all my crafty friends and family!!!

Welcome to the Get Inky! Farewell and Welcome Blog Hop.  You should have arrived here from Julie's blog.  If you happened to have stumbled onto the hop mid-way, be sure to start at the Get Inky! Challenge Blog for a chance to win a fun prize.

The blog hop is saying "goodbye" to our previous team members and welcoming our current members . . . some of whom are new to Get Inky!

For my project, I decided to use some scraps I had leftover from The Paper Temptress who is the current sponsor for my Hiding In My Craft Room Design Team challenge . . . I used the Black Mica/Metallic, Red Mica/Metallic and White Leather.  The paper is just marvelous and such GREAT texture . . . and it worked wonderful with the Get Inky! stamps I decided to use from the "Sew Sweet Cupcake" stamp set.  So in keeping with the  "Clean and Simple" style, here's what I came up with: 

Here's a close-up of the card so you can see the texture of the mica and leather paper:

As you can see, the leather paper does have a texture . . . so when stamping on it you want to have a "cushion" behind it and make sure your stamp is good quality so you can put pressure on it without it smudging.  Get Inky! stamps were PERFECT for this!!!

Now for the fun part . . . Leave a comment on each blog along the way and you will be entered to win one of three year-long Inky Moonbeam memberships!  To see what the club is all about, visit

I am so glad you stopped by and look forwar to inspiring you further.  Now off you go to La-Vie to check out what she created.

Goodbye Hello! Like the "Sew Sweet Cupcake" stamp set. This is a great "Clean and Simple" style with lots of texture for a different slant on things. TFS.
