Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to this month’s edition of the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop!

You have stopped here at my little corner of the web. I am Joanne Cantrell and I live outside of a tiny town in the middle of the United States. I am glad you hopped on over.

Let’s get this party started by taking a look at this month’s inspiration…

What a tranquil setting, don’t you think?

Well, I was inspired by both the setting (the tea cup actually!) and the color combos. And Stampin’ Up! was as well… a year ago! LOL

Here, I’ll show you what I mean!

This card features the soon (like very, very soon… in 3 days) retiring Tea Boutique Suite from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. The 6″ x 6″ Designer Series paper shown includes three of the colors from the inspiration photo: Sweet Sorbet and the retiring Garden Green and Blushing Bride. And the Teacup Dies pull in the teacup from the inspiration photo.

Here’s a sneak peek at the fun fold that I am absolutely in love with. It’s call a double flap card and I CASE’d it from Lisa Curcio.

Let’s see the inside of it…

But wait… there is one more layer! 🙂

I don’t not what I love more, the fold or that gorgeous paper! Let me know which you like best!

But wait… there’s still more!

So, I couldn’t really decide what I want type of fun fold I wanted to do. I made several birthday party invitations using this Double Flap so I had it in the mix. If you search “Double Flap Card” on Pinterest, you come up with several other double flap fun folds. I choose the two that I saw the more often and created two other cards with the same suite.

Here are the results…

Well, that’s all I have have for you this month! I hope you have found inspiration in my inky creations! It;s time to hop along and see how the others have been inspired!
