Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration Blog Hop: Occasions Card Swap Samples, Perfect Pennant

 This past month, many of the Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration designers participated in an Occasions Catalog Card Swap. Instead of keeping all of these beautiful card samples to ourselves, we wanted to share them with you, too! Today's blog hop will spotlight a handful of Stampin' Up's Occasions Catalog products as each of us who participated chose a different stamp set to showcase.

As you hop along, please be sure to comment and show some love on every blog...and be sure to pin it, too! We are always excited to hear from our followers! You should have just left stop number 7 on the SSINK Occasions Catalog Blog Hop – Cynthia R. of Ink-a-Doodle Creations . If so, you are in the right spot. If a link doesn’t work or you get off track, you will find the full blog hop lineup below. And, be sure to come visit us at Stylin' Stampin' INKspiration where we 'inkspire' you 5 days a week, 52 weeks a year!

There were so many stamp sets in the Occasions catalog that I immediately fell in love with and the Perfect Pennants stamp set was right up there, and the fact that there are matching framelits make them truly awesome!  I started with Gumball Green for the cardbase and then I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock that I embossed with the Big Shot and Hexagon Embossing Folder.  The designer series paper is Birthday Basics and I used a couple of different patterns and different sized framelits for the flags. 
The stamped image was stamped in Bermuda Bay cardstock and I used the smallest Banner Framelit to cut it out.  The ribbon is Raspberry Ripple 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon and the final touch was a little heart cut with the Small Heart Punch and the Silver Glimmer Paper.

This card turned out so cute and was super simple to make and all you need to do is change the colors and designer series paper to meet any theme or personal preferences.  I hope you enjoyed and make sure to continue along the hop to see all the other great cards.  Next up is Donna S. and you can click the "next" button below to move along the hop.
