Inky Friends Suite Design Blog Hop

Posted by on August 10, 2018

Welcome to the Inky Friends Suite Design Blog Hop! You may have just arrived from Sara’s Blog, or if you are going backwards from Betty’s Blog. No worries, even if you are starting here. All of the blogs link in a circle, so you won’t miss a single amazing project. If you get stuck, you can always click this link to take you to the master list.

I am super excited to be featuring the Animal Expeditions suite. There is designer series paper, an awesome stamp set, and even framelits! I didn’t feel like coloring this week, so I decided to focus on pairing the stamps with the super cute paper. This first card uses the incredibly versatile sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. It’s a great way to highlight the designer series paper.

For my next card, I tried a new folding technique. It was super easy, but looks really fun, which is pretty much my favorite kind. This one is called a Double Triangle Fold, and I use the tutorial at Splitcoast Stampers. This is the front:

    I love that you used the sketch so as not to cover any of that funny Animal Exhibition paper!! The sentiment is just right. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
