Our Sale-a-brations event also marks the release of our new Occasions Catalogue which features amazing new products for everyday and also for those upcoming occasions we love to celebrate, like Valentines Day, Mother' Day and Father's Day. You can order from the Occasions catalogue until 2nd June.

INKspired Artists Blog Hop #INK010, Cycle Celebration & Sweet Taffy DSP

Hi there! Welcome to another INKspired blog hop. I hope you've had a wonderful start to the year.  It's nearly the end of January already! Can you believe it??!!

You may have arrived here after checking out the card created by my lovely friend Lisa who has come up with a great design yet again. I hope you will hop all the way around the blog hop and admire everyone's creations.  

There hasn't been much stamping going on in my house lately, what with holidays abroad and my three boys still home on school holidays, so I was happy to have reason to get card-making again for this blog hop.  

And .... it's my youngest child's 7th birthday soon, so I used this upcoming event as inspiration for the theme of my card. Josh is such a bright, happy boy and I knew I wanted to make a card to match.  Do you think he will like his birthday card? I hope so!

Below is the sketch we had to work with this week: 

And here is my take on the sketch:

I think this card is fun because of it's bright colours and striking patterns.  I have used Stampin' Up!s Cycle Celebration stamp set, which is an oldie but a goodie. In fact, it's a stamp set I purchased in my very fist order after signing up as a demonstrator. Memorable Moments, another great Stampin' Up! stamp set, also makes an appearance along with the really fun Sweet Taffy DSP. I think they all work really well together.

Now I know your'e thinking, "Lissa, where's the star?" but Teneale assured us the star could be anything we liked, so I used a square with candles stamped on it and the birthday sentiment mounted on top. 

Next stop on the blog hop is the luscious Louise, who you all know is an incredibly talented paper crafter.  Bye for now, and I hope you'll hop by again next fortnight :)

Below is a list of Stampin' Up! products that I used to create me card. You can visit my online shop to purchase these and other products.

See you next time :)
