Stampin' Up! This Birthday Piggy ~ Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog!  I'm excited to be joining the Stamping Inkspirations Blog Hop today.  I love being a part of these fun Blog Hops with other stampers sharing what we love and create!  Links to all the other blog posts for this hop are near the end of this post! - be sure to check them out! Hopefully you will be as inspired as I always am seeing what everyone else creates for this month's challenge.

One of my favorite things about doing the different blog hops is that we are often challenged to use sketches, techniques or colors that we maybe wouldn't use or are just not our normal thing.  This month's challenge ~ for this very creative blog hop ~ is Fun Folds!  I'm always amazed at what other paper crafters do with fun folds, but have to admit, I tend to play it safe and keep it pretty simple myself.  With that being said, I do think they are lots of fun, am pleased with my simple one and can't wait to see what everyone else on this hop creates! 

This Birthday Piggy is the stamp set I've been using all week and I thought it was perfect for this challenge!  I kept the layers flat for this one and colored the image with a few Stampin' Blends. 

(Not sure why the inside looks so square in this photo.  It's really not!)

Card Base ~ Starry Sky Cardstock ~ 8-3/4" x 4-1/4", score at 5-1/2"
Layer 1 ~ Butterfly Kisses DSP ~ 4" x 3"
Layer 2 ~ Starry Sky Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 3-1/4", score at 4-1/4"
Top Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 3"
Large inside layer ~ Butterfly Kisses DSP ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Small inside layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 3"

Thanks again for visiting my blog today.  I hope you were inspired to create something great!  Don't forget to check out the other blogs in this hop.  I know I'm looking forward to doing just that later today!
