Welcome to our Charming Blog Hop! Scrapbooking in Melbourne, Florida

Welcome to the Artful Inkables’ “Charm”ing blog hop!   All of our creations are made not only with Artful Inkables stamp sets, but also with matching charms that are sold in the store!
So if you arrived here from Crystal's blog, you're right on track!  If not, hop back to the beginning (Kristin’s Blog - Artful Inkables), so that you can get the full show.
There will be a prize giveaway at the end of the hop, so be sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs along the way in order to be entered into the random.org drawing.

I used Artful Inkables' elegant stamp set, "Peaceful Wishes".   I was able to every stamp in the set on the three cards!  Can you believe that I did not use any ribbon or buttons?  Now, that's restraint!  ha
The two smaller images are stamped on Baby Pink cardstock and popped up on three inch cards.  How quick and easy - and elegant!

Here's a closeup of the main card.
Aren't these deer beauuuuutiful?  I stamped them on the Baby Pink cardstock, then trimmed around their little legs and hooves.  Then I adhered the pink layer to a piece of White Daisy cardstock.  It's all placed on a Black card (you can click on the image for a larger view).  The little deer charm (precious!) is strung on a silver spiral clip, balanced by silver brads for the deer eyes.  How beautiful would these deer be embossed in silver?  Lots of ideas buzzing around here!
So are you ready for more 'charming' ideas?
Then hop on over to my girlfriend Lisa's blog - her inspiration is the set "Greek Gardens".

Remember to leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win.  Win what?  Well, you'll find out at the end of the hop!

Good luck!
