Stampin', Hoppin' and Sharin'



It's Great day for HOPPIN'! Come blog hop along with us today as we share with you some of our creations with Artful INKables FOUR new Stamp Set Releases.

The card that I am sharing with you today is a bit of a departure for me. It is a very simple, monochromatic card. But I felt that the detail in the instruments of the Music a la Carte set can really be shown off with a more simple card. The strip of background paper I used is from my scraps pile so I cant share the manufacturer but I really thought it mirrored the swirls around the guitar in a pleasing way. I also used one of our new guitar charms to add some bling to this card. (It can be found in the AI store along with 2 more new ones.) I think adding a charm to a card is a fun way to give the recipient a special little something. They can either enjoy it on the card or take it off, add it to a charm bracelet or necklace and always remember you for it. I hope you like my card and can see the possibilities that this set, Music a la Carte, can bring to your stamp set collection.

There are also three other sets available to purchase today and all are of a different variety. Please visit the home page : artfulinkables.com to view these other sets and the other stamps available in this set. And don't forget, we have low prices EVERY DAY and free shipping for any order over $45.

Now, it is time for you to hop on over to Elena's Blog to enjoy her talented creation using a new AI set. And be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end because, as usual, there is blog candy involved!

Thanks for stopping by!
