INKspired Blog Hop #30

Mum 29 nov line

Good morning and welcome to our 30th Blog Hop. We had the girls in last night to help put up the Christmas Tree and have a little party fun. It was lovely as Bailey had made our shopping list of what we were going to have for tea. Earlier in the day I had met her and her mum at the shops and she helped shop and then as we got closer to home, we rang Poppy to come out and help use carry it all in.  Teneale often laughs if she is with me and finds it amusing that I announce my arrival.

If your already started on the blog hop then your most likely arrive here from the famous Louise Sharp whom I am sure has wowed you again.

This is the image that we had to work with from our industrious leader Teneale, rather enjoyed creating my card and hope you enjoy.

29 November

Lets see what I have come up with, you will notice that I am using the Flurry of Wishes stamp set again.  This is the one set I had said I wouldn’t buy, think it was the last one that I hadn’t bought is more to the point.  Now I love it as its such an easy set to use in many different ways.

I used Lost Logoon as my base card and Pool Party as the card front, which had been embossed with that lovely Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, that I am so please is carrying over to the next mini catalogue what is coming out on the 3rd January………………………whose excited to get their hands on this new catalogue along with the Sale-a-Brations catalogue.

Flurry of Wishes

I used a water colour wash on my water colour paper to create a background, that was after I had embossed my images onto the water colour paper.  Left it to dry for quite a while, then cut to the side I needed and mounted it to whisper white card stock and trimmed.  Like the corners I used Corner Rounder, new in the Holiday Catalogue.  Such a kool tool to use.  I used the merry as my attachment of a circle and Velum as my stripe.

I am really pleased with this card and might just pop of an create another one or two, who wouldn’t enjoy receiving this in the mail.

Enjoy as your off to the super talented Teneale Williams and I wonder what she has in store for you.

Interesting design, not sure that I followed it to a T, however here is my make on it.

I chose to use the Furry of Wishes stamp set as it was sitting on my desk and never been inked up.  How many of you have a stamp set that’s never been inked up?  I bet lots of you, as Crafters we are our own best customers.  I had originally thought I would use Soft Sky as the basis to my card however was a tad worried that with clear embossing it might not show in my photo.

For the inside I used Lost Logoon ink and the smaller two of the stamp images.  I have given in and order the punch for them this week, did you know it’s in the weekly deals this week, finishing on Tuesday night if you wanted to order one.

Hello everybody, what a great weekend it has been. I spent Saturday at the Penrith Paper Craft show. Not buying much as we all know Stampin’Up! has the best inks, stamps and papers. Even better is that it all coordinates; I am happy to look at what is on show and then apply that to my projects.

Anyway enough of this idle chatter, let’s see what Teneale has for us. You have most likely landed from Kabrina’s page and I think she was doing a shaker card, bet it’s great and has given you inspiration for an upcoming project.


Bloghop 1 november

The aim for today was to make a card using 3 circles or 3 shapes of your choice.  I decided to go for tree’s mainly because I hadn’t used the Peaceful Pines and dies set.



I have used Mossey Meadow for my trees and Real Red as a trim around my card and the greeting is from the Wonderland, one of my favourite stamps in the Holiday Catalogue.

Hope your are enjoying your little hop around and don’t forget to leave a comment or two.

Next you’re off to visit Teneale who I have to say has made the most gorgeous Christmas Card that you are sure to love.
