Cheerful Christmas


 My theme of late has been focusing on projects using the Stampin’ Up! products available in the Holiday Catalogue I've designed today’s card using the Cheerful Christmas stamp set and the Lucky Stars Textured embossing folder. 


Rather than colouring the whole stamp with Stampin’ Write markers, I inked the entire stamp in Cherry Cobbler (Classic Stampin’ Pad) and then used a cotton bud to remove the ink from the pine needles and re-coloured just those small areas with the Garden Green Stampin’ Write marker.  BUT before stamping onto card stock I “huffed” on the entire stamp to remoisten any ink that may have started to dry.  And there you go, that’s how I did it! 

Cheers Narelle

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop -3





INKspired Artists Blog Hop 

Welcome to our Third INKspired Blog Hop!
I had lots of fun playing along with this week’s blog sketch 
and love the end result and hope you do too!

I started with Shelli's Stamp Set "I Love Lace" to create a patterned background. Firstly I versa marked it then heat embossed it using white embossing powder. I totally love the softness of the lace. I then used a sponge dubber and lightly rubbed Lost Lagoon all over to give a hint of colour!


I used the Tag topper punch from Stampin'Up! to create my tag and then using markers I coloured the Postage Due stamp in using lost lagoon, Raspberry Ripple and Soft Suede, stamping directly onto the tag. The little rose was made using the petite petals punch and a circle cut into a spiral for the centre.

Vivid Vases


This long weekend  I finally got to play with the lovely Vivid vases Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! 
I used the gorgeous grunge and four feathers stamp sets to create the designs on the vases and just loved the effects. I had so much fun creating over the long weekend with my beautiful sister, who I had not seen for so long! Thanks sis it was a totally awesome weekend. 
I stamped the image in Basic Black and then coloured the flowers using a blender pen. I then fussy cut the vases and raised them using dimensionals to give a 3D effect. I also cut the ribbon in half to make the bow.  Happy Stampin' 
Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 2



INKspired Artists Blog Hop 

Welcome to our second INKspired Blog Hop!
I have had lots of fun with this week’s blog sketch and hope you do too! You may have just arrive here from Maree's blog, or if it’s your first stop please be sure to ‘hop’ to all the other talented INKsired Team Members!


This Sketch challenge has been designed by my talented upline Teneale Williams and as we are getting closer to Christmas I chose to kick start my card list by using the Merry from the Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set, which can be found in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalogue.





For this card, I used a technique called Emboss Resist by stamping the merry from the Seasonally Scattered Stamp Set in versa mark and then heat embossed. Using a sponge dauber I rubbed the image in lost lagoon blending from the centre out to create a softness. Lost Lagoon is one of the new in colours and I totally love it.



Next stop is the lovely and very talented Renee
