Inky Antics Blog Hop!

Today's Inky Antics Spring Blog Hop celebrates the versatility of the HoneyPop Collection, and I have two cards to share with you!

If you're hopping, you’ve come from Crystal's blog.  If you've just come upon my post, be sure to start at the beginning of the hop and be prepared to be inspired! 

Here’s the hop order:
Keri Lee Sereika
Michelle Pearson  **you are here**


The blog hop starts today and ends on Sunday, February 27th at midnight Central time. Please visit each DT members’ blog to view their projects and leave a comment for each designer. The more you comment, the better your chances are to win. (Limit one comment per blog, please). Two people’s names will be drawn at random to receive a surprise Inky HoneyPOP prize pack. The winners’ names will be announced on the Inky Antics blog next Monday, so remember to stop back and see if you’ve won.

My first card I paired up with some fun My Mind's Eye designer papers and embellished my card with a touch of Candi.
For the inside of my card you see the fabulously fun Rainbow HoneyPoP element in the ball.  Notice the fun mechanism that allows Ellie's face not to be folded in the card when it closes?  See the directions for that and ideas for an additional card on this additional card project sheet.
If HoneyPop isn't always the order of the day....this set can also be used without that element.  For this card I went girly and covered my stars with flowers.  The star tips look like leaves peeking out from under the flowers!  I placed Ellie on the ball image included with this set.
Oops!  Ellie fell off the ball...but Miss Mouse is reminding her she's special anyway!  I popped up Ellie and the sentiment for some added interest, and tucked the ball behind my card liner panel.

These sets are great fun, be sure to make every stop on the hop and see how versatile all of the HoneyPoP sets are!  Your next stop is the Inky Antic's Blog.
