My Inky Friends "Love it. Live it. Share it" Blog Hop: Time to Celebrate

Welcome to the My Inky Friends "Love it. Live it. Share it." Blog Hop. This month we are featuring products from the 2018 Occasions catalog.  This stop features a cute animal set called We Must Celebrate. If you are already hopping, did you like Yapha's projects with Sunshine and Rainbows?

I fell in LOVE with this stamp set as soon as I saw it. I knew it would be perfect for cards at work!  As for LIVING, I decided to use the KISS technique on my projects this month--Keep It Simple, Sara. I have three cards with different designs, but the same focal image.  

I used my Stampin' Blends on Glossy Paper. I really love the effect. Bright, crisp colors!  For this card, I used the ribbon technique from our first My Inky Friends Design Challenge. I like it. The Bermuda Bay Ribbon from the Shimmer Ribbon Pack, which you can earn FREE with a $50 purchase. I used Bermuda Bay repeatedly with the confetti stamp in the set to make the background and added a bit much fun. 

My next card used the same image, but with a different flair.

I added a second element withe snail on the Circle Tab Punch and placed my sentiment on the Classic Label Punch in Basic Black with an added Enamel Dot for flair. The dot carries the dot theme from the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper. The circle of the snail also contributes to that idea.

My final card uses a brighter background:

Again, I used the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper. I just love the color combinations of this paper! I added a Basic Black Band for contrast and added my sentiment to a Washi Punch, which I just realized was retired. Sorry about that! Inside, I added a little fun with the mushroom family. 

Now, I am SHARING with all of you and the My Inky Friends Team! I hope you like my projects. Next up you'll find Tanya's AMAZING projects with the Waterfront stamp Set. Or, you could go back to see Yapha's Sunshine and Rainbows! 


Here is a supply list. Feel Free to CASE (copy and share everything) my cards!
