Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - May 2022 - Bottled Happiness

Time for another Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  This month we are sharing projects featuring products from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.  I used the Bottle Happiness Stamp Set for my card in some of the new In Colors.  This stamp set features 2 step stamping.
