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.

INKspired Artist Blog Hop #32

 Welcome to our first Blog Hop for 2016.  I am so pleased to be here to show a new stamp set or two from the New Occasions Catalogue, I am sure you also love getting your hands on some new stamps as well.

The sketch that Teneale has given us is a square card to play with see below.  If you have just arrived here you most likely came from Maree and I cannot wait to see what she has made for us.

12033207_10205592424944863_6799805890003184410_nI had fun making this card and knew straight away that I would be using one of the new flower stamp sets called Birthday Blooms, its such a pretty stamp set and the papers are gorgeous too.  You can find the suite of items on page 9 of the new catalogue.


 I white embossed onto shimmy white cardstock and then using my aqua painter and Blushing Bride and Old Olive reinkers coloured the blossoms in.  There are some beautiful papers in the birthday Bouquet Designer Series papers and I used this for the bottom of the card and trimmed with the gold ribbon.  The greeting on the side of the card came from another handy set of sayings, also in the new catalogue called Greatest Greetings, which I embossed in Gold.

Now no card is every complete without an inside.

 I again used a strip of the designer paper and embossed the greeting in gold embossing powder.

Now its off to see what Teneale has in store for us.
