INKspired Artist Blog Hop - Sketch 5 - 80th Bloom with Hope

Hi Blog Hoppers! 
You have just hopped from Janelle's blog!!
I feel like it's been ages since I blogged...and it has!! Its nearly been a month YIKES!
Time had gotten away from me and I even missed the last INKspired Artist's Blog hop :(
Never-mind I am back and we have a new sketch Teneale has created this fortnight! 

Number 5!

So my creation this hop is a birthday card for my Grandma!
She reached a milestone today 80!!

My Grandma is a very special lady and she needed a special card... so the pressure was on!

So where to start?!?

Firstly I picked out the Bloom with Hope stamp set. 
I have picked out this stamp set before and never ended up using it... I don't know why coz I really love it, maybe it was waiting for this creation?

When I was little I couldn't pronounce Yellow properly... I would say lellow instead lol.
Grandma always reminds me of this so a lellow was the main colour palette.
I cased a card on Pinterest by Ann Schach... on one of her cards she used a background that I loved and wanted to try out. I am not sure how she did it (could be an embossing folder??) but my attempt was to score the CS on a diagonal using the envelope punch board (there probably a easier way to do this) and then place the pearl embellishments on top :)

I love how they card turned out and I think my Grandma did to!

Happy Birthday Grandma
So happy you spent this special day with us! 
I am sure we will share many more!
Love you!

Up next is Lissa! YAY it's is Lissa first INKspired Artist's Blog Hop so please make her feel welcome and leave a comment to welcome her to the hop!

  1. Gorgeous card for a beautiful woman, your grandma does not look 80

  2. Wow, I love the way your scored your card and added pearls to it, I had seen a folder that would do this, but as it wasn't Stampin' Up! I didn't buy it, now I can use your idea and get it how I want it. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Oh I LOVE this, the scoring looks amazing! WOW yet again.

  4. LOVE the scoring, you've done it perfectly. The pearls are a nice touch too. Your use of 'lellow' is beautiful, and I don't have the bloom with hope stamp set yet - glad you have it! ;)
    Happy Birthday Grandma! I know she'll love it. xo

  5. Kabrina, I love the scoring, too! I'll have to get out my scoring board now. I bought this as one of my very first items and have only used it to make boxes so far .... that will have to change. Happy happy 80th birthday to your Nan x

  6. I love this colour combo!! This stamp set and this card! Wow!! Great work and technique!
