Creation Station Blog Hop - Going Gingham Style!

Welcome to Just Julie B Stampin'! If you're just starting the Creation Station Blog Hop - Welcome!! And if you've hopped here from the fabulous Sara Levin, I hope you enjoyed her awesome creation! This month we are going 'Gingham Style' - and I Love this!! I Love gingham, but it also makes me want to sing and dance to Gangnam style!! ;) 

OK - so back to card making! When I saw all the gingham papers - and fell in love with them... I wasn't so sure that I had to have them just to go with the Butterfly Gala, all part of the suite. So I bought the papers first.

And then... when I saw the Fable Friends stamp set - Aaaaaahhhh - Loved them as partners! I Love the Fable Friends bunny (the Peter Rabbit looking bunny with the gingham papers - Beatrix Potter style!). Buy I had to do something a little different - 

I Love all the animals in the Fable Friends set - the bunny and the ducks, and baby ducks... but this little squirrel guy - he stole my heart! He's just so cute!! I couldn't wait to color him with some Stampin' Blends and put him on a card, Haha!

Look at him a little closer, with the sweet little sailor jacket and hat - so cute, right?! I loved coloring him with the Stampin' Blends - I used Crumb Cake, Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Old Olive and a smidge of Mango for the flower center. With more practice, I'm really liking the Stampin' Blends more and more!!  

I added a little "Happy Spring" tag, quickly (and not perfectly) cut from Balmy Blue Cardstock, just to give a nice general saying on the card.

I kept all the other details of the card simple - one layer of Balmy Blue underneath the gingham and just a simple knotted Whisper White Classic Weave Ribbon - all because I wanted to be a 'boy' card for my grandson! I try to visit him often, and usually bring him a little something. So next time I visit, I figured I would add this cute little card to his little gift!

I hope you enjoyed your stop here! And I hope you enjoy your hop to the amazing Denita Wright-Smee! Can't wait to see what she has created! Click the link below to continue on the hop!
