To get the blended look on the popsicle, I inked it up first with the lighter ink, then I did the rock and roll technique, making sure to hit only the top part, then to ensure the inks blend, I inked up the lighter ink over top. I've done this so many times, and I've never notices an ink transfer to the ink pad (although I always do this in the same colour family)

Although this sketch is super simple, I found myself stumped. I kept wanting to use stars, but told myself to use something other than the shape from the sketch. As I sat there contemplating, a colour scheme came to me, and from there, I found the right stamps!
Stamps: Blooming Button Bits, Women of Life, Beautiful Blooms
Ink: Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Limeade Ice, Dark Chocolate
Paper: Lemon Tart, Simply Chartreuse, White
Accessories, etc.: Brown grosgrain, corner rounder

I hope you're ready for our second take of sketch #2! This one is extremely simple and is great when you want use a larger sentiment
I thought a baby card would be a good idea for this layout. It ended up being a bit layered, but I still really like the overall effect. I started my stamping one of the Petal Power background prints in Sweet Blush. It ended up being too bright, so I softened it up with a layer of vellum. I added my sentiment to that layer and then finished off the card with a brown scalloped edge and some ribbon.
