2016badge-lagoon Pals Blog Hop Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for July 2016. We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper as well as coordinating embellishments. What we love about Stampin’ Up! is they make it so easy to mix and match colors. And, the amazing selection of embellishments provides a wonderful finished look to our projects. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.


Beach Combers! Card & envelope from Inker's Workshop 2016

Hey everyone…this is my very first Pals Blog Hop…so excited to join in!

Just look at these birds…aren’t they the cutest little Beachcombers?

I sat on the fence about this Wetlands set for quite a while…and I finally
caved. Turns out my timing was great, the new Serene Scenery Designer
Series Paper Pack has the perfect beach for these little guys to walk on!

Beach Combers! Card from Inker's Workshop 2016

The birds, and one set of reeds, are stamped in Black Archival ink… a
second set of reeds are stamped in Crumb Cake ink to add dimension.
It’s mounted with Stampin’ Dimensionals onto a layered card base of
Whisper White and Crumb Cake,

That’s it…that’s all the stamping there is on here…it’s all about the paper!

* Here’s a tip for perfect placement:
The Stamp-ma-jig works great for lining up your stamps right where
you want them!

Beach Combers! Envelope with Serene Scene Designer Series Paper Pack. Inker's Workshop 2016

Ahhhh…the envelope!

I didn’t put a greeting on the front of the card, I saved it for the flap of
the envelope. A good first impression, don’t you think? The greeting
from this set “Thinking Of You”, is perfect for so many occasions…and
this paper is the perfect backdrop!

Thanks for visiting!

To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below.
We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop! 

I deleted the hop list…Google made me do it… Sorry everyone!

Thanks for hopping…
Have a fabulous day!

  1. Beautiful, serene–what an awesome card!
    Love your fabulous idea of putting the sentiment on the envelope–it’s not only guaranteed to bring a smile to the recipient, but also is anticipation of what lies inside.

  2. An adorable match of stamp set to DSP, Karen. Great card (and why did you wait so long to hop with us, LOL…)! Really like the idea of the sentiment on the decorated envelope flap!!

  3. Karen, This card is so pretty. I can not believe this is your first Blog Hop. I love everything about your card.
    Great Job, Ellen Hinds

    • Thanks, Ellen! I’ve had my blog for a while, but had so much to learn that I waited to join in the blog hop until now. I’m so glad you like the card!

  4. Karen, This DSP is just perfect for the Wetlands ss. Perfect placement with the stamping! Love the paper on the envelope flap with the sentiment, love that idea!

    • Thank you for your kind words, Terry! Please do return…I’ve been down and out with a bad hip for a few weeks, but I’ll be back here playing with ink very soon, thanks for stopping by!

Got something to say? Leave me a comment...I'd like that!
