It's Easy As ABC, 123

Welcome to our monthly Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop! Our theme today is ABC 123. Our Roll Call question on our Facebook page this week is about Back To School, so it all seems appropriate for August!

We're so excited to have you hop with us today! If you're hopping in order, you should have just left stop #5 - Cheryl at Create with Cheryl. If you get off course, or a link doesn't work, the entire hop list is at the bottom of this post. Please leave our designers some love when you visit them. We love to hear from our readers!

So what exactly does ABC 123 mean as a theme? (You were asking yourself that, right?) We were challenged to create an Album page, Box, or Card that used 1 stamp set, 2 designer series papers (either 2 stacks or 2 designs from the same stack), and 3 embellishments.

As you can see, I opted for a card. My base is Tangerine Tango. My 1 stamp set was Thoughtful Banners, which you can save 15% on when you purchase it bundled with the coordinating Duet Banner Punch. My 2 DSP were A Little Foxy (which I used the reverse side of the same print for my smaller balloon), and Serene Scenery (which is my favorite DSP of all time!). The balloons were cut out with the Balloon Bouquet punch. My three embellishments were Brights Enamel Shapes, Calypso Coral Thick Baker's Twine, and Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape.

Thank you so much for stopping in and seeing my ABC 123 project! If you started at the beginning of the hop, you have reached the end. If you started in the middle, or would like to hop through again, you can use that Next button to head to Diana's blog!

    1. Cute card! I love how the DSP looks like the sky and the little piece of washi tape with the black and gold was a perfect accent!!

    2. I love the banner at the bottom & the way it's popped up so that the strings can go under it! And the washi!

    3. Simple card, but packs a visual punch! I love the patterns and colors used.
