Happy Inspiration with Martha

Happy New Year dear friends!!! Martha here today to host the blog for you.
I hope this year brings you a lot of happiness, health, fun and, of course, creativity. Today I want to celebrate a birthday day with you, because a birthday also celebrates a new year! Welcome to 2016!!!


The latest collections are definitely my favorites and in this opportunity I decided to use the Whistlin' Dixie and Farmhouse to create my card.

The size of my card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" when it's closed. So I used a pieced of Whistlin' Dixie 107 of 8-1/2"x 5-1/2" for the base. Then I cut one piece of the Farmhouse 106 to create a mini file folder to decorate the front of the card. I made the tab style using the File Tabs Edgelits from Stampin Up.

  • I stamped a sentiment in a little piece of Whisper White card stock using Blue Lagoon Powder Puff Chalk Ink
  • I decorated the left side of this piece using a strip of Farmhouse 105.
  • I attached the sentiment with a mini clothespin clip decorated with a cute yellow bow made with linen thread.
  • Before pasting the file folder on front of the card I decorated the base with two strips of paper.
  • One from the Farmhouse 105 and other from the Anchors Aweigh 106 in combination with a half doily paper.
