Sea of Textues

Hi and Welcome to the Inkspired Artists blog hop.  Not sure if your starting here or your come from Allison’s page, I wonder what she has made for us to-day.

The sketch is made my up line Teneale, who makes them up for us each fortnight.  A sketch is good if you want to come up with a card but don’t want to case anyone else’s work, not that there is anything wrong with that either.

Here is my take on this sketch, I used the delightful Under the Sea stamp bundle and the papers to match, I had looked at doing the octopus in Stampin Write markers, however as I also wanted to us this card from my class on Friday last week, it would have taken too long to get around the class.  Instead choose to use the designer papers and stamp on it.

This stamp set is such fun to use, we also made another one but stamped it all, maybe I will post it through the week.  I used the Rock Salt technique.


Hope you enjoy this card, now your off to see what Teneale has made for you.



ESAD Color your Season


Hi and Welcome to the ESAD Colour Your Season blog hop, there are 19 of us showcasing this beautiful set, which is only available for a short time, at the end August 2018 it will no longer be available, so you need to contact your Stampin Up Demonstrator.

Have you just come from Narelle’s page, I am excited to see what she has made for us today.  It’s lovely to see all the different cards produced using just one stamp set and the colours they have chosen for their colouring’s

I love the big blossom in this set and have used it many times in class, they ladies all loved it so much most of them bought their own set.

I used Cherry Cobbler to color and mounted it on a piece of white card stock after putting it through my Big Shot with the gorgeous Tuffed Embossing Folder.  In the set you also get a the double stitched Thinlits, which are only around for this month.

Before go, here is the explanation of ESAD,

Now your off to see what Jackie has made for us.

Hello and Welcome to our little teams blog hop.  if you have hopped over from Alison, I wonder what she has made for us.   I have to tell you, I loved the sketch that Teneale has made for us this week.
I choose to use the new Blended Seasons stamp set, that is only available in August, so you don’t want to miss out on it.  Do you like Coloring, its perfect to color.

I used a combination of Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Calyso Coral and the light Soft Suede.  Would have loved to have Cajun Craze as well, but surprise, it’s coming.

I stamped the whole of my 10 x 14.4 card front with the leaves from the Blended Season stamp set and they just sat and colored in to my heart’s content.  Such a lovely time I had.


Hope you enjoy my card, I love it, hope my class does, they are going to do this on Friday mornings Class.  So much fun.

Now your off to see what Teneale has made for you, its mind-blowing.  you’re going to love it.
