Inkspired BlogHop 64

Welcome to the 64 BlogHop of the Inkspired Artists, I am always happy to participate as it makes me step outside my comfort zone.  If your come from another participant its most likely Maree and I am wondering what she has made for us.

I rather loved this sketch and found it easy to come up with a nice little design using it as I did a spur of the moment trip back to Young, my childhood town and took a trip down memory lane.  The set I choose to use is called HEARTLAND, its such a cute stamp set and so easy to use.

I choose to use the colours of Curry Crush, Early Espresso and Whisper White as my colour palate.By Babara Williams | Heartland Stamp Set from Stampin Up

I stamped down the little person going off with the ducks and a stick, I sort of thought they might be heading off to the creek, just as I used to do as a child, especially if I had been fighting with my siblings, it was always safer to take off on the farm for the day.  Children today have missed out the fun of living on a farm.

I stamped in Early Expresso Ink, then just spot highlighted the overalls.  I used the delightful paper out of the Birthday Memories Designer Series.  Thought this was appropriate for my little walk down memory lane.

Esad Casing Holiday Cattie

Hello and Welcome, if your started at another site it was most likely Rose Parker or if your started here, then you’re in for a treat with the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop.

I know I am always excited to get a new catalogue into my hands and check up all the new stamps and dies.   I decided to only go with one stamp set and show you just how versatile it could be.

I chose to use traditional  colours of green and red, however I have been using non traditional at others times and will blog them later for you.

The set I used is called Every Good Wish, which is a very versatile one, let’s go look.

For this one I used the Be Merry and white embossed onto Real Red cardstock, cut out with the lots of Labels Framelit then mounted onto a piece of Whisper White cardbase that had been embossed with the Holly Embossing folder that had the leaves and berries coloured with markers before being put through the sizzix machine.  See the result below.

Again I used the Holly embossing folder but this time on old olive card stock, stamped the Peace Love and Joy on a piece of Whisper White and then cut out with the Lots of Labels Framelits, cutting an extra on in Real Red, cut in half and mount onto the back, then used markers to colour the holly and berry’s on the top and bottom of the sentiment.

Carried the small berry and holly inside of the card.

Who has had a play with the embossing paste?  Its so much fun and super easy to use, so used this as the background of the card and then just stamped and cut out oval using the layering ovals.

I then mounted the Red onto White and then mounted onto a old olive card base.

Now who doesn’t need a take to put on that special present at Christmas, use your Decorative Label punch, and your oval dies, little stamp and its done.

I do hope you enjoyed my cards and now your off to see what Jessie has made for you.
