Blog Hop 53

Welcome to yet another Inkspired Artists bloghop, you have most likely come from my friend Maree and I wonder what she has created for us today.

Great sketch that Teneale  has given us to work with, don’t you just love her work?

 I decided to use the Birthday Blooms as my stamp set, its lovely to water color and always look great.  I used Watermelon Wonder as the main color for the flower and Delightful Dijon for the centres.  The leaves were colored with the Cucumber Crush, not a color that I have used a lot, however as it was St Patricks Day this week and there is a lovely young girl at work who is having a birthday in April and she is Scottish I thought it only fitting to make it for her.  Hope she likes it.
 I have used the Cucumber Crush as the main card base and the paper is from the in color designer Series paper stack, which will be retiring this year.
Enjoy and don’t forget to leave a comment, even one word is fine.
Now your off to see what Teneale has made for you, I was lucky to see it and your going to love it.

Bloghop 52

Hi and Welcome, if your come from another blog it would be my friend Maree, I wonder what she had done this week.

Can you believe it, the schools are half way this this term?  and I thought our blog hops come around quickly.

Here is our sketch that we have for this week, I rather liked it and hope you do too.bloghop-52

I had just bought the Frozen Treats Bundle and just knew that this sketch would work well with this sketch.

hop-52-fullI used Peek-a-Boo Peach as my card base with an extra fine Sahara Sand on the back of the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper and trim on the greeting.

Its just the cutest little set to use, I loved how the topping is cut out and placed onto of the ice cream.  Anyone who knows me, would know that icecream is my most favourite food……………………..boy that’s bad.

hope-52-halfI used the Stitched Frames on whisper white cardstock and then mounted my dish of ice cream.

Inside I used the very cute Happy Birthday Greeting and a cone ice cream.


Enjoy and now your off to see what Teneale has made for us.

ESAD 2017 Last Chance

headerWelcome to another Blog hop with the ESAD group of demonstrators.  We are showcasing items from the Sale a Bration catalogue which runs to the 31st March 2017.


If you not sure what that is?  well if you spend 90.00 in either the seasonal or annual catalogue you choose an item from free from the Sale a Bration catalogue.  If you don’t have one, I am sure your demonstrator could send one to you.


You may have come from Maree’s blog and I do wonder what she has in store for us today.

I decided that would showcase the Carried Away Designer Series Paper from the Sale A Bration catalogue and team it with two stamp sets out of the Occasion Catalogue, they are the Lift me Up Bundle that has wonderful hot air balloons.


I love the details on the cut out hot air balloon, which I put some whisper white behind and mounted it onto the clouds designer papers.

esad-ballon-fullI then used the stamps and stamped out the hot air balloons then used the dies to cut them out.  Very happy with how easy, yet nice they looked.

esad-another-year-fullI then switched to The Balloon adventures, still using the Carried Away Designer Papers.  Not sure if you picked it up, but I have embossed the greeting with Watermelon Wonder using the ink and clear embossing power, I must say I love embossing and now I am able to emboss in any colour I want.

Now your off to see what Lou has made for us.  Don’t forget to leave comments we all love them.
