INKspired artist blog hop 22

Hello everyone, isn’t it nice that the days are lasting longer, I no longer walk out of work into the darkness, although the nights are rather chilly. The days roll along and we are now at work 22 of our blogging Journey and I wonder what Teneale has in store for you this week.


Blog Ho[p 22

I have thought of using the work Remember out of one of the stamp sets, but decided as it would be a perfect fit for this sketch that I should extend myself a little more and my hand automatically reached for my very favourite stamp set Vintage Leaves.

And I am sure I have nailed it, love the old olive with Pear Pazziz on my leaf and don’t you just love the little wooden word and leaf.


What do you think, because it’s a woody type of card, I started with the wood grain embossing folder, one of my favourite ones, however on this occasion I used the reverse side of the pattern so it wasn’t as grainy. I then used some designer series paper out of the Farmers Market Designer Series papers.  Love Burlap and so that was one that I knew I would use.

As the sketch needed a sentiment, which was the focal point of this hop, I choose the Expressions Natural Elements.  there are three different ones, thanks, celebrate and Congrats.  I choose the Congrats as it can be used for any occasion.  You will notice a little wooden leaf on the corner, that is in the new seasonal catalogue due for release in September.    We really need to move past every card saying happy birthday.   I know my ladies now are happy to use lots of different greetings and then hand write in the card their message to reflect the event.

And no card is complete without the inside, so here we go.

Now off to see what Kabrina has created for us.


Here is a list of what I have used to create my card, should you wish to make it. Now we all know that as crafters we do not need everything and we can often substitute some of the items. But I am sure that your going to want my leaves as I have used them lots and am not finished using them as yet.

If you click on the leaves, it will take you straight to my shop. Happy shopping. Bye for now.
