A Birthday Best Sample

First of all, I want to thank both our readers and all of the new INK Girls for a fabulous Blog Hop! Many readers said they had a great time hopping from one blog to the next and viewing the beautiful variety of samples made with our new release sets. Didnt everyone do a wonderful job? Im just floored by the talent we have on our DT. (If you missed the hop just follow the links in the post below.)

Next, I want to remind you that anyone is eligible to enter the drawing for the blog candy we are giving away on Dawn's blog until February 24th. Dawn will choose a winner on the next day, Feb 25th. So if you havent yet entered, be sure to visit her blog and leave a comment under the blog hop post. The prize is all 4 of our new release sets and a sampling of May Arts Ribbons. Good Luck!

And finally, I want to share another card I've made using another of our new release sets. I made this card using the 3 tiered cake from the Birthday Best set. I just masked a border around the edge of my vanilla card stock and stamped the cake at an angle. Then I colored it using prismacolr pencils and gamsol.

At the edge of the masked area, I drew a thick line in brown to frame the image...in retrospect, I suppose I could have just layered card stock and achieved the same framed effect. :-) The brown card stock is Chocolate Chip by SU! and the decorative paper is also by SU! but for the life of me, I cant remember the name...it is discontinued anyway, so I suppose it doesnt matter. To finish it all off I added 2 pink dew drops. What do you think?

What a lovely card Kristin! I have always loved your artwork! I have finished the blog hop. So much talent! Your sets are wonderful, but I will admit Post A Note is my favorite! I am not a cupcake fan *gasp* and don't own any cupcake stamps but yours is great! I love the fluid lines of the cupcake. I just wanted to share with you what a wonderful line of stamps you have!

This is gorgeous! I love the color combo and how the shape of the dew drops echos the circles on the cake :)
