Be Inspired Team Blog Hop - Cupcakes & Carousels

Thank you for joining us this week for our inspiration of Cupcakes and Carousels! You may be starting here or have come from the super amazing Allison Okamitsu. We will be taking part in the Be Inspired Blog hop every two weeks so enjoy this one you will have to wait 14 days for the next one.

I really, really, really love Stampin' Up!® paper. Like seriously LOVE it. I even have my own hashtag - #loveitchopit because too many of us, and yes I was one them, hoard our paper. What is the point of leaving it in our cupboards. CHOP THAT PAPER. It will love you for it. So today I used the gorgeous Cupcakes & Carousel Designer Series Paper Stack for my cards.

This first one I LOVE - I actually used the Sweet Cupcake stamp set for the first time and had so much fun.

It has many layers of stamping to it and I used the Calypso Coral, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay for my Cupcake. Even the sentiment I love.

The next three were super quick cards and I used the same layout for each one. Do you do that? When you come up with a design why not make a few cards with some different paper or inks and make a few? You create many more and faster once you have done the design for one. I used my scrap pieces of paper to decorate the inside of my cards.

The thanks sentiment is from the All Things Thanks stamp set and I have masked off the part that said for that thing you did. I used Washi tape to mask it off and it worked great!

Love the colours in the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper Stack - Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, So Saffron and Very Vanilla. All the inks and cardstock are available for purchase if you live in Australia in my online store.

I adore this last paper - but really any geometric pattern wins my heart! lol. 

Thanks for joining us today. Next up is the super talented Katy Harrison. Make sure you hop all the way around to be inspired by these amazing projects.
