Artful INKables Blog Hop!

Hello! So Kristin, the owner and artist of Artful INKables stamps has created 4 new sets this month! She is so amazing!!! The INK girls are blog hopping today to show off the sets, so I hope you get a chance to visit everybody's blog. Hopefully you made it here from Elena's blog, but if not, start at the beginning which is Kristin's blog : )

I LOVE this set that is dedicated to boys! There are so many stamps for girls out there, so this set is awesome to have in your collection! It's called Boys Will Be Boys. I made two projects with this super fun set : ) For my first card I used Pacific Point cs and dp from the DCWV All About Boys matstack. This sentiment is sooo sweet, and I just love the little boy with the frog!

This second card is a Stair Step Fold card, and you can find directions for making one here. I tried to combine a lot of elements from the Boys Will Be Boys set, and I had a lot of fun with it. This will fold right up and fit into an A2 sized envelope. Pretty cool, huh? The base is Brocade Blue and the dp is K&Co Hopscotch.
My final card uses an adorable set called Rodeo Rodent. I just love the western theme of this set, and the little mouse is adorable! Once again I used dp from DCWV All About Boys matstack and Chocolate Chip cs for my base. I distressed the panels with Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink. I also distressed the edges of the dp and added some brown stitching.
Now head on over to Joanne's blog but don't stop there because you'll probably find some yummy blog candy at the end : ) Thank you so much for stopping by today!

These are all so wonderful, each in it's own way. I love the stairstp card so much it is on our homepage. Both your designs really brings that boy set to life! (Did you know, my 11 yr old son wrote that sentiment for me? lol) And your mouse is wonderful!! so cute yet so masculine with all the western trappings you put with him. Great job my friend!
