"My Favourite Inspiration" ~ Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop

Hi Friends! I'm excited to once again participate in the "Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop"! The general theme for this month is our "Favourite Inspiration Source", with a specific focus on the January-June 2021 Mini Catalogue and/or January-February 2021 Sale-a-Bration products. 

I think, like most stampers, we get a lot of our inspiration from Pinterest. Along with using my Stampin' Up! catalogues (old and new) for inspiration, I also love finding card layouts on Pinterest that I can tweek and make my own. 

The card I created for this blog post was inspired by one I found on Pinterest, made by Debbie Mageed, featuring the "Sailing Home" bundle:

Isn't Debbie's card just beautiful? You'll have to check out her blog post for this card, which is actually a "Calendar Easel Card". I just kept my card a regular fold, but I do love the easel fold that Debbie used too.  Using Debbie's card as a starting point for my card, I kept to a similar colour scheme and used products from the new "Sand & Sea Suite". 

To make this card, I simply stamped the images with Crumb Cake ink onto the Crumb Cake card stock layer, then added more ink around the edge with a blending brush. 

I also stamped shells with Crumb Cake ink onto Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla card stock that I cut with the coordinating die. Next, I ran the oval die-cut through the 3D Seashell Embossing folder - this is such a fabulous folder! A few Opal embellishments finished off the card.

This card was so much FUN to make! As you can see, the inspiration I found on Pinterest with the Sailing Home card was a perfect fit for the products in the "Sand & Sea Suite". 

Now it's time for you to hop on over to Annette's blog and see where she finds her inspiration!
