Inky Antic's "Clearly Fun" Blog Hop and My CardMaker Magazine "Outside of the Box" Card


Hello Everyone!

So glad you could join us for another fun Inky Antics blog hop!
If you are here from Michelle's blog, you are in the right place! If you just happened onto my blog, you will want to head over to the Inky blog and start from the beginning. You don't want to miss a thing! All of the girls have created projects with Inky's new clear cardstock!

First off, I have to tell you that my card today is a double duty project.
We have a new feature over on the CardMaker Magazine blog called "Outside of the Box" where we pick one of our cards that was published in a older issue and recreate it with differnt products.  It is a great way to show that you don't have to have the exact same products to CASE a card. :)
For a peek at the original card as it looked in CardMaker Magazine, and to see my tips on how to create cards with clear bases without adhesives showing anywhere, please pop over to the CardMaker blog!

Here is the card I created for the article and the hop with Inky's clear cardstock.


For this version, I used Inkys' #10017E "Contempo Flower" and #0214D "Mini Thinking of You" illustrated by Monica Lee. Both stamps, as well as the clear cardstock, can be found HERE.

Here is a photo of the inside.


If you like the look of the clear cardstock, you won't want to miss Inky's April special. A FREE package of clear cardstock with a $40.00 or more purchase. See details HERE.

The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, April 22nd  at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). Two people’s names will be drawn at random to receive a surprise Inky prize pack. The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics  blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won.


Your next stop on the hop is Debbie's blog.

Beautiful card Trudy, I love how you layered it, when it's open the front is very little (I hope that makes sense). Such pretty colors. Enjoy your day!

I really like the idea of putting multiple elements on the cover and hiding the sentiment inside. It's been awhile since I made a clear card but I am eager to give it another try. Thanks.
