New Horizons for the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. Today I am hopping with a group of talented demonstrators from around the world. You are currently visiting Robbie Susan Chandler from the United States.

Our challenge was to draw inspiration from the picture below. 

Below is the card I chose to make for this challenge. The New Horizons Designer Series Paper made this challenge so easy!

I decided an easel card would really show off the beauty of this card. The base is a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock scored at 4 1/4 and 2 1/8". I adhered the designer series paper to a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece before adhering it to the cardbase.

This is the piece of the designer series paper that I designed this card from.

After cutting 2" off the top so the height was 4" and cutting the length to 5 1/4", I stamped the evergreen trees from the Grassy Grove stamp set in Blackberry Bliss. Using 2 stamps from Oceanfront, I stamped across the bottom to form the sloping lake edge with Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape inks. The Oceanfront stamp set is a perfect stamp set for stamping on the New Horizons designer series paper because it gives the exact same look and feel as the paper itself.

Of course, we have to have birds flying above the Fresh Freesia lake. 

I added a strip of the piece I cut off the top below the sentiment.

I hope this card has inspired you & brightened your day. You are currently visiting Robbie Susan Chandler. Please see the list below & hop through all of the people on the list to see all our projects. You don't want to miss any!
