InspireInk January Blog Hop - Birthdays

Hi everyone,

Welcome to the InspireInk monthly blog hop for January and this month our theme is "Birthdays"

My card for this month's hop uses some of the products which can be earned for FREE throughout our Saleabration promotion (until March 31st). I have used the Thoughtful Blooms stamp set (available for FREE with an order of £45) and the Small Bloom punch (available for FREE with an order of £90).

I started out with a card base of Coastal Cabana and stamped it with three of the stamps from the set in Versamark to make a subtle background. The bottom half of the card is covered with a piece of patterned paper from the Subtles colour family stack.

The scallop edged mat is die cut  from Gorgeous Grape card (it looks kinda dark on the photos) using a die from the Stitched So Sweetly die set. 

Then I just stamped the stems and leaves in Shaded Spruce on a Whisper White panel. And stamped some flowers in Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather, before punching them out with the Small Bloom punch. Easy!

The sentiment is from the Little Ladybug stamp set which can be earned FREE with a really big £275 order!!
