Happy Birthday to Amber Ink!
It's Amber Ink's first birthday, and you're invited to the party! To celebrate, many of the past and present Amber Ink torchbearers are participating in a giant blog hop. If you've already been hopping, you should have arrived from Emily's always inspiring blog. If you're looking for hop directions, head over to Party Central (aka Amber Inklings) for all the details. And what would a birthday party be without presents, so be sure to comment for your chance to win!
I have two cards to share today, one using a classic Amber Ink girl, and one using some brand new images!
I made this birthday card recently for a friend celebrating a rather significant birthday. At first I was stumped as to what I could do for a card, but once I thought of this Amber girl from the set Hope, Popcorn & Wine, the idea soon came together.
This card uses Amber Ink's brand new set, It's a Train Set, along with a few cupcakes and candles from Little Things: Birthday Fanfare - Bake Me a Cake. I put all the images together in Microsoft Word, printed it out and coloured them. The train's layered on my second-favourite iPaper, Spin Pin: Tiny. Quick and fun!
Your next stop on the birthday party hop is Meg! Not only a former torchbearer for Amber Ink, Meg is also currently in the top 15 in Paper Crafts magazine's Gallery Idol contest. Get ready to be dazzled!
Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the birthday hop!
