In the mood for a blog hop?! Well, grab a cuppa and head around the 11 stops on this SaleABration themed blog hop that some of my stamping buddies and I are having today.
Let's Get Hopping!
You might have arrived here from the blog of the always lovely and very talented Christine Blain - Happy Heart Cards, or perhaps you're starting out from here.
Punch Bunch: Masculine Card
I've used the happy birthday stamp from the SaleABration set Punch Bunch for my masculine card.
This stamp fits the Scallop Square punch. Punch and stamp combos make card making so easy I think! I've stamped it in Wild Wasabi ink on Naturals Ivory cardstock.
Base card: Wild Wasabi spritzed with Early Espresso using a marker and spritzer. This card is 4 3/4" square and fits inside the Stampin Up medium square envelopes on page 123.
Feature: Chocolate Chip cardstock cut with the Scallop Square die and embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder (both from the Summer Mini) plus a piece of the woodgrain patterned paper from the Woodland Walk DSP (pg 125.) A couple of loops of hemp twine to give a masculine finishing touch.
And a nice super simple inside - just a few extra spritzes of ink plus another punched Happy Birthday scallop square.
Do you ever find you're using the same colours a lot? The colour scheme for this card was from the Woodland Walk DSP. Check out the coordinating colours for each pack of Designer Series Paper in the catalogue - a great way to find some new colour schemes to try out if you find yourself in a bit of a colour rut.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have lots of fun on the rest of the hop and get all inspired for some crafting happiness this weekend.
