Inkspired BlogHop 94

Hi and welcome to another InkSpired Bloghop, boy the weeks are rolling on, can you believe we are approaching Easter and then Anzac Day, however before that I have Teneale’s birthday, Easter, Terrianne Easter Sunday, so you might say I have a full month.

Here’s our sketch for this week.


From when I first saw this sketch I knew it would be a breeze.  I was able to use my favourite die on it, that’s the adorable little scallop die from the “Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.

I chose to use the Graceful Glass 6 x 6 Designer Vellum and colored on the back of it with Calypsol Coral Dark Blender and Dark Apple Green, then flipped them over and again colored with the darker shades, then used the lighter shade to get some shading happening.

Attached my vellum onto a piece of Whisper White which had been cut with the scallop on the bottom and I left a small edge on the top, then took a small strip of glitter paper, cut finely and attached above the scallop… All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, contains the sweet ribbon trim, so wish I could have just bought that on its own, its so nice to use.

Using the stitched Rectangle Dies I cut out a piece in Flirty Flamingo and attached to Apple Green base, mounted onto thick Whisper White.

Hope I have inspired you to go coloring.

Now your off to visit Julie Martin, a new blog member, please leave her a message to give her some encouragement as she is very nervous.

Welcome and hop your had an enjoyable weekend, if your come from Alison’s blog I wonder what she has made for us.  Its always exciting to check out each others cards, its a way for us to grow and strengthen our skills.

This is the sketch that Teneale has given us to work with.  Personally I love sketch challenges and should do more of them, it also makes us stretch our imagination and create without copying other people.

I actually had forgotten about the blog hop, but had some stamps and dies sitting on my desk as I have classes on Friday, then combined classed with Teneale on Saturday and Sundays.  So needed to be thinking of what we are going to make.  Before bed, I was told that if you think your going out with your friends Mum, you need to let me know that your got your card made……………… how bossy is that.

Anyway I had loved the Dear Doily stamp and die set, which was one on my desk, I went to sleep thinking now I could quickly make a card with that, think it would fit the sketch.

I used the subtle embossing folder after I had stamped the blossom down one side.  I had taken my Stampin Write markers to the stamp.  I used Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink.

I then cut out the doily in powder pink and gray granite card stock as the strip down the side, trimmed with the beautiful dies from the Be Mine Stitched Framelits Dies.  I might tell you I only bought this set for that edge.  Now I love all the dies in the set……………its a keeper.

Here is the finished card, I told Teneale its a hot card, just like her Mumma…………………lol  I might add I wasn’t allowed to go play with my friends unless I had made it before I went out, so she could come and do my photography.  I am so so lucky that she looks after me so good.

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Next your off to see what Teneale has made for you.  Your going to be blown out of your mind, its so beautiful.


InkSpired Blog Hop 92

Welcome to another InkSpired Blog Hop and my very first for 2019 with our team players.  If your started from one of the other players it most likely Alison and I wonder what she has created for us today.

Here is our sketch and lets go see where I am at with it.

I choose to use the Incredible Like you Stamp set, its a two step stamp set and the flower is very forgiving and so beautiful.  I used Berry Burst Cardstock and Inks, along with Lemon Lime Twist, and for the background I stamped in Versa Mark to give it a nice subtle look.  


I love the greetings in this set as they are very versatile, I stamped this in Gray and used my 2″ punch to cut it out.

I flowers were hand cut and I used my leaf punch for vellum leaves.  I love punch’s, they are always so handy and right in front of my on my desk.

Did I say, I had attached the lemon to the Berry Burst cardstock then put it through the subtle embossing folder, then attached to a piece of whisper white and trimmed to a fine boarder.
Just one of the simple greetings inside and a couple of little flowers and we are done.

Your now off to see what Narelle has made for you.
