It's a CHARMing Hop!

Welcome to the Artful Inkables’ “Charm”ing hop! To get back into the swing of things for the new year, we are bringing you some creative inspiration that highlights a few of the wonderful charms we have that coordinate with our exclusive stamp sets. As usual, there will be a prize giveaway at the end of the hop, but you need to leave a comment on the blogs along the way in order to be entered into the random.org drawing. We are offering the winner any stamp set of their choice along with a matching charm! Cool, huh?

For my card, I used the Creature Comforts set and an adorable woven heart charm. All the stamps in this set would be perfect for any Valentine's project you might need to make next month and the 2 heart charms we carry would make lovely embellishments for them.





Stamp Set: Creature Comforts
Ink: Versamark, Momento Black
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pretty In Pink and Certainly Celery Cardstock from SU!, a lace paper doily and DP from Crate Paper's Bliss Collection
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Woven Heart Charm, random striped satin ribbon, dimensionals and 2 buttons




My oldest daughter also made a card for our hop, her card uses the Pond Friends set and an adorable 3d turtle charm. Isnt it cute??





We both really enjoyed making these cards together and we hope you get some inspiration from them. Now it is time for you to move on to the next blog on our Charming hop... JOY's Crazy for Daisies Blog. And dont forget, if you comment on every blog on our hop, you will be entered into our drawing for an Artful INKables set and pewter charm of your choice. Thanks for visiting!!
