Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – Birthday Surprise

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell from a very tiny town in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the United States. I hope you enjoy the projects/cards I have to offer you today.

Our theme this month is BIRTHDAY SURPRISE! It should come as no surprise that Stampin’ Up© offers a plethora of stamps just perfect for birthdays…  all ages, all genders, all personalities… it’s all here for everyone.

Well, with it’s bold images and perfect sayings, it is no wonder that BEAUTIFUL DAY (145912/145915) is fast becoming one of my favorite sets of all times.

I decided I wanted to do something a little different so I went with a corner fold card.  It’s can be a little tricky to do, but there are several tutorials to be found.

I choose Pool Party, Fresh Fig, and Daffodil Delight for my color scheme.

(Sorry for the blurry photo…)

Between the flower and the butterfly, it was really hard to decide which to do on this card.  But, once I made the decision I stamped it with Fresh Fig and used the Dark and Light Daffodil Delight Blends to color it in.

I then stamped the sentiment from the set on to a strip and cut it out as a banner.  A little piece of the Fresh Fig behind it sets it off just a enough.

I hope the projects you’ve seen here on my blog today have inspired you and brightened your day. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell. Please see the list below and hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don’t want to miss any!
