INKspired Artists Blog Hop #INK007 - You Make the World a Better Place

INKspired Artists Blog Hop #INK007
You Make the World a Better Place, Starburst Sayings

Welcome to another INKspired blog hop.  So glad you could hop by! You may have arrived from the very lovely Janelle who has designed yet another gorgeous card. I hope you can hop all the way around the blog hop and see everyone's offerings.   

The sketch we had to work with this time is very user-friendly and one which I know I'll come back to again and again ...

Whilst planning my card, I was tossing up between a floral theme and using the Starburst Sayings stamp and framelit set.  I have been eyeing off this super set in the Stampin' Up! annual catalogue for over 6 months now and purchased it only recently to make a special birthday card for my sweet son Matthew (Happy 11th Birthday Mattie xx). I'm a bit of a floral fanatic, so I thought I would move out of my comfort zone. I have to say that I'm pretty chuffed with the result ...

I like this card because it's simple to make with clean lines and an elegant, not too feminine feel about it. I think this card would be happily received by men and women alike, don't you?

Next stop on the blog hop is the amazingly talented Louise, I can't wait to see what she has come up with!

See you next time :)

    1. Maree, it's not the world stamp, but Letterpress DSP, making this card even simpler to make :)

  2. wow I love love love this Lissa. I never would have thought of using the around the world stamp like this!! love it!!

  3. Lissa, this is fantabulous I love it. Classic colour combo - gorgeously handsome ;)

  4. Thanks ladies, I'm pretty happy with this card, too ;) Sometimes I have to work really hard for a card to look right, and this time it just happened!

  5. Cherry Cobbler is just delicious, and with the black it looks even better. I would never of thought to put the Letterpress DSP with that stamp set.
