Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - Jan. 2018

Hello friends.  It's the 25th and that means it's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly BLOG HOP!!  This month's inspiration photo screamed PARTY and I LOVED it!!


SOOOOOO many things to be inspired by in this photo!  I went with the cake, confetti, balloons, flowers, colors, but no ice cream cones...how is it that with millions of stamps, I do not own any ice cream cone stamps?!!  Oh well, still had FUN playing with my new balloon stencils and an older birthday cake set called Just Desserts.

I started by stenciling my background with the new Balloon Stencil with Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold, and Hibiscus Burst inks.  The cake is from the Just Desserts set and I made my own confetti on the cake layers using markers.

I've had this Just Desserts set for over a year now and had never used it...FUN set to play with and I love the sentiments too!!  Attached all my layers to a Hawaiian Shores card base and added a few colorful enamel dots and some bakers twine to finish my card off!

I LOVE hopping to see what everyone else created using the inspiration photo...happy hopping friends!  You can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
