Ink & Inspiration May Blog Hop


Welcome to the first Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell from the United States. I hope you enjoy my cards showcasing my favorite product carrying over into the new Annual Catalog.

I have chosen to highlight the Guy Greetings Stamp Set (138825-w / 138828-c / 137178-p).  As you will see, you can mix it with other sets or leave it by itself.  And, as you scroll through, you may notice a thing or two you don’t recognize… those are new products from out of the new catalog!!!  Does that whet your appetite?


This card features new In-Colors Fresh Fig and Tranquil Tide.


What a studly guy… perfect for your husband!  The star embossing folder used is retiring, but check out that mini chevron ribbon… that’s NEW!


Once again, I have used that Tranquil Tide.  I think it will be my new favorite!  But, did you notice that Designer Series paper in the background?  That’s new as well.  It’s part of the Wood Textures DSP Stack.


For this card, all I used was the sentiment from Guy Greetings.  The leaves and branches come from a NEW suite called Color Theory.  It’s on page 146 in the new catalog.  Check it out!!!  You’ll fall in love… I promise!


Nothing new on this card… But, I am in love with it!

And, of course, what would playing with Guy Greetings be without using the anchor?


Yes, this is my favorite card to make with this set.  It is the one that I made nearly 200 of for my son’s co-recruits at Navy Boot Camp last fall.  I cased it from someone, so it’s not my creation.  But, I can whip them out like nothing now!

What card do you tend to recreate?

Well, that’s my showcase of my favorite returning item in the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!

  1. Wow what great masculine cards! I am so glad this set has carried over! Your cards have inspired me to pull out my set and make some masculine cards!

    1. Thanks, Janneke! Masculine cards are hard to come up with. I am glad we have a great set to work with! Happy to be on the team with you too! It’s going to be great fun!
