Hello and welcome to this edition of the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – a gathering of creative minds from around the world! You are currently visiting me, Joanne Cantrell! I live in a teeny tiny town nearly smack dab in the middle of the United States!
The theme of this month’s hop is cards and projects for kids and babies.
The card I have for you today is one that I created for a recent card swap that I participated in. I think it would be perfect for a kid of any age! Let’s take a look!
I was inspired by a card created by Lisa Ann Bernard. This card features the Zoo Globe Stamp Set. I love the little animals that this set includes. Especially the elephant, but I didn’t even use him on this card.
Let’s see what I did use…
It appears I used all the other animals except the elephant!
I did the coloring with a variety of Stampin’ Blends and Stampin’ Write Markers. And, used the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the balloons in the corner. I thought they went well with the ones in the giraffe’s mouth!
This is a simple fancy fold card. The basic instruction is to cut the card base 5-1/2″ x 11″. Then score at 4-1/4″ and 2-1/8″. Then you turn the card in your trimmer and shave off the corner.
You know what… why don’t I just give you a printable project sheet?
And here is a special link that can put everything in your Stampin’ Up! shopping cart – everything except adhesives!
Well, I hope that you have been inspired by my card. It’s time to hop along to see what the rest of the blogs have for you!
Until next time… keep it simple, Stampers!
