InspireINK Blog Hop | Just Because with Free as a Bird

InspirInk Blog Hop Header Stampin' Up! team blog hop

Hello! Welcome to StampinByHannah and the InspireINK blog hop for April 2020. This month, with everything that’s going on, we thought it time to take it back to basics and create some Just Because projects that you could send to your loved ones, a friend, or even a colleague to let them know they’re not alone.

Just Because card using Free as a Bird from Stampin' Up! for the InspireINK Blog Hop with StampinByHannah

Earlier this month I sent my mother in law this card, along with a bunch of printed photos of Niamh. I also made one for my mum, which I shared a week or so ago.

I love a simple card, one that you can whip up in a hurry and get it in the post, and while this one is coloured with Blends, it was made fairly quickly. The Free as a Bird stamp was stamped in Memento Black ink, and then coloured with Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow Blends pens. I rarely use this “properly” and tend to just lay down flat colour rather than using lots of pens and blending, however if you had the time you could really go to town on this image.

The other reason I continue to love the Free as a Bird stamp set is the lovely background images. Those leaves, stamped in Pool Party ink on Pool Party card stock, just does something that makes my heart happy.

I finished this card with a sentiment from the Well Said Stamp set, keeping things simple so that it would travel well through the post.

Check out the rest of the InspireINK Design Team and their Just Because projects and I hope to see you again soon
