CardMaker + Lil' Inker Designs Blog Hop



Happy Friday, crafty friends! Welcome to the CardMaker and Lil' Inker Designs blog hop. I'd say this is an awesome way to end the week, wouldn't you? You should have arrived here from the super talented, Jessica Frost-Ballas. If you get lost at any point along the way you can find the complete list of hoppers on the CardMaker blog.

I have three cards to share with you today. All of them feature the Sweet Celebration stamp set/dies and the Celebrate word die. I had so much fun creating with these and hope you enjoy what I have to share!


For my first card, I die cut my heart in two colors, hot pink and bright yellow. I first adhered the hot pink outlined heart onto my card base and then attached the yellow heart on the inside. Next, came the embellishing.


I die cut 'Celebrate' in orange and attached that to the front of the heart. I then die cut the banner, from the Sweet Celebration die collection, and stamped the rest of the sentiment before attaching it with dimensional foam. I finished this card off off with a few stamped flowers, leaves and sequins.


Card #2 : Celebrate YOU using more of those sweet hearts, flowers and sequins!


A closer look at the second card. I chose to include the inside of the letters in 'Celebrate' for something a bit different.


And last, but not least and probably my favorite out of all three. I cut strips of happy and colorful card-stock, attached them all to another piece of card-stock and then die cut the heart using that. So simple, but it just makes me smile!
