INkSpired Blog Hop 146

Hi and welcome to another blog hop of the Inkspired artists.

Below is the sketch that Teneale Williams has designed for us.

As soon as I looked at the sketch, I knew what set I was going to use. Lets go have a look at it.

Its the Peaceful Cabin Stamp bundle and i also used the Peaceful Place. Specialty Papers that are so perfect, see them below

I used Basic Grey to stamp the images, then using the dies to cut out the outline of the house and the trees, these where then put through an embossing folder to add texture to them. I used the Evergreen Florest for the Trees and the Tasteful Textile 3D for the house and fore ground.

I decided to silver emboss the greeting and using the oval punch cut it out and mounted.

I just stamped part of the cabin to one side, embossed a rather crooked greeting on the other side and attached a piece of the of the designer paper to the bottom.

Lets go see what Julie Martin has made for us.


Rogue Wednesday

Sisters of the Heart

I loved this stamp bundle as it has not only the stamps, the dies and a stencil. Stencil coloring is one of my new loves. This is a perfect set to have for some of your close friends, that are more like Sisters and you get to choose them.

This is a outline stamp, just made for coloring. I used the stencils to color, my favorite coloring medium at the moment.

Beauty of friendship

This card is made from the Bundle called the Beauty of Friendship. Its on page 11 of your catalogue.

I made it as a 3 fold card and cut out a circle on the front as well as a piece of Beauty of the earth designer paper.

I stamped the tree on the piece of card stock that is folded in and shows through the circle on the front of the card.

On the inside of the fold is an other tree and the greeting.

“Friendships refresh the soul” so true.

Thanks for stopping bye.

Rogue Stamping again

Have you used Stencils? They seem to be a new way of creating cards. I have a love of Altenew products, and happened to see this Sweet Spring Stencil. Its a stand alone set of 2 Stencils, which have produced this amazing card.

Using my Blending Brush’s I was able to color this beautiful.

Then I used the a new sentiment stamp set from StampinUp called Sunny Sentiments. Its just beautiful

On the inside of these cards I used the “though you could use some sunny thoughts today.”

Enjoy and always look at what you can combine to make your cards unique.

Rogue Stamping

Whilst we have all been locked down in Western Sydney, I for one hadn’t been paying enough attention to some birthdays and one in particular had gotten away from me.

She is a very dear friend, you know the type of friend that even if you dont speak for months your always start again where you had left off.

She in particular is a collector of Elephants, so i know that the card has to be featuring an Elephants. So dug out Tim Holtz Collection of Life Adventures SMS077. Do you want to see how I used it.

I stamped him down in Smokey Slate and then using my Blends I colored.

I stamped him down on Stampin’Up white cardstock inked in Smokey Slate and then using my Blends I colored. As she has also been in hospital for a couple of weeks and still isn’t well, I thought that i would make the front a bit of encouragement for her. The greeting is from the Many Messages Stamp set in the annual catalogue. Its on page 42.

For the inside I used a large Happy Birthday, its quite a old set in Wood which I kept.

You will be pleased to know it made her day.

Thanks for stopping by my blog……………….dont tell Teneale that I will be back tomorrow with some Rogue Stamping. Bye for now.

Just Breathe

I was so excited to receive one of my latest investments. Its a ShotBox from WeRMemoryKeepers, to take my photo’s instead of getting someone else to do them for me.

So I am so going to be able to get more cards on my blog as well as work out how to improve my photograpy.

I choose a new stamp set called Reflected in Nature, its a Distinktive stamp meaning that it has added depth and dimension in the stamp and your able to get a beautiful image.

I choose Misty Moonlight as my main colors, stamping twice on the top part of the stamp and only once on the bottom, as it is to be a reflection from the house and trees into the water.

We are all living in a difficult times at the moment and i thought this was a great stamp to just make and post to someone to let them know we are thing of them. in the inside I put, Take Time for you.


InkSpired BlogHop 145

Hello and welcome to another BlogHop, which is blends, such a easy hop.

I used the stamp which you can earn from in the Sale-a bration catalogue.  The name is Feels like Home.  

So lets go have a look.

For the inside I just stamped a greeting and the little flower pots.

Now, your off to see what Teresa has made for us.






INKspired blog hop 144

Hi there and welcome to the Inkspired bloghop 144, yes I know your thinking she hasn’t played all this year, and your right. My blog is powered by WordPress and they changed the whole format of it and I have only just come to turns with having to learn something new.

See below the sketch designed by Teneale Williams and lets go see what I have made.

I decided as we are going to be locked down longer that it was a good time to start some Christmas Card making, I chose the Tidings and Trimmings Stamps and Dies from the main Catalogue.

I used the following ink colors of Cherry Cobbler, Misty Moonlight, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen and did a random stamping of the Star over the whole card front.

After stamping it, I put it through the beautiful Timber 3D embossing folder, if you don’t own it you should put it on your list as a necessity.

I took small stripes from the designer paper, Tidings of Christmas, stacked them on top of each

On the inside i carried through the strips and using my blend pen colored the back ground before stamping the greeting.

Thank you so much for visiting my block and your now off to see what Julie has made for you.


Color Challenge

Hello and welcome to the colour challenge of the INKspired Artist’s, our leader Teneale Williams called for colour suggestions to create challenges and I gave her Just Jade, Shaded Spruce, Merry Merlot and Basic Gray.

When this challenge rolled around I turned my nose up at the colours until I realised I gave these colours! 

They are very festive so I went with for a Christmas card.

I am loving the layering of Best Plaid Builder Dies
