Inkspired Blog Hop 49

Good evening everyone and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop! You may have come from Lissa who makes lovely cards.

Here is this fortnights sketch:

It is another square card and here is my interpretation:

I needed a birthday card and thought that the recipient would like the Lift Me Up stamp. I stamped the balloons using Versamark on Basic Black and embossed the images using the Copper Embossing Powder. I then used my heat gun and the Up & Away thinlits to cut them out. I used Mint Macaron for my card base (a six inch card) and the Carried Away Designer Series Paper for the background. I thought it looked a bit like snow or rain (not that I would want to be in a hot air balloon in the rain or snow!). I then attached the Peekaboo Peach Ruched Ribbon before attaching the patterned paper to the front of the card. I stamped the sentiment in Peekaboo Peach  mounted it onto the reverse side of the patterned paper.

I decided to do a couple of things that I don't always do. Firstly I decided to decorate the inside of the card:

I cut a couple of strips from the DSP and lined the Whisper White I placed inside the card.

The other thing that I did was make an envelope for the card. I admit normally I just buy them!

I used the 2016-18 Envelope Paper and Envelope Punch Board to create the matching card.

Next on the hop is Maree. I can't wait to see what she creates!

Until next time,
