Good morning! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. We had a really lovely time with lots of family in town. My husband is off work, so we’ve spent lots of time playing with the kids, playing games, watching movies, and stuffing our faces. As you do. Anyway, welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month we are showing sneak peeks from the new Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs that go live to customers January 3rd! There are so many fantastic new things in these catalogs!
My card starts with a Coastal Cabana card base, 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. I stamped the little sketchy flowers from the Hello Cupcake stamp set in Bermuda Bay along the top of the card base. The Hello Cupcake stamp set is a freebie during Sale-A-Bration — free with a $50 order. Then I added a piece of Gingham Gala designer series paper, 5-1/2″ x 3″. I love this paper! It comes in five springy colors, including Highland Heather, which I used here.
The cupcake is also from the Hello Cupcake stamp set. I stamped the different parts (3 different stamps to build the cupcake) in Gorgeous Grape, Flirty Flamingo, and Bermuda Bay on Whisper White cardstock, then fussy cut each part out. Then I also stamped the Gorgeous Grape sprinkles. I popped up all three parts on Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment in Gorgeous Grape on Whisper White, then flagged one end of the banner with the Banner Triple punch. I finished off the card with some Bermuda Bay 1/4″ Mini Striped Ribbon and a Gingham Gala Adhesive-Backed Sequin.
Inside I stamped a different sentiment from the same stamp set, plus two more flowers.
I hope you enjoyed my card today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way back to me so you can see everyone else’s projects. The designers on this team are so talented — you won’t want to miss any of the blogs!
