Inkspired Blog hop #33

INKspired Blog Hop #33

Welcome Bloggers to another Inkspired Blog Hop. I have to say it's been a very busy week for me! So here I am writing this post at midnight again. I'm starting to make a habit of doing this! Anyway if you have arrived from my super talented Stampin' Buddy Marlene that means you have already seen some of the cards using the following sketch designed by my super talented and amazing up line Teneale Williams.

The card I made for this week's sketch challenge  has very little stamping. I have used the Butterflies Thinlits Dies cutting the shape twice, once using Basic Black Cardstock and the other using Stampin' Up! Shimmy White Cardstock. Behind the layered Butterfly I have used a strip of Silver foil. This is such a simple card to make but I do have to admit to loving layers.

My Creation

 Now its onto Maree to see what she has in store for us this week.


Thanks for stopping By!

INKspired Blog Hop #32

Happy Sunday! I hope you have had a lovely weekend so far. I am show casing a little bit of Silver bling and the beautiful Blooming  Love Stamp Set from Stampin' Up! today as the INKspired team members come together for the first time for another great year. I can't believe how fast the time has gone! Christmas is over and I got to witness the arrival of my beautiful little Granddaughter into our lives. Alexis Faith McCartney was born on the 22nd of December weighing 3.060 and looks just like her beautiful big sister Miss Alyssa, who is so excited! 

Ok I think I've bragged enough.
Welcome if you have arrived from the lovely Renee that means you have already seen some of the cards using the following sketch designed by my super talented friend and amazing up line Teneale Williams.   

My Creation

As a Demonstrator I had the opportunity to purchase this set a little earlier.  I love this New Product Suite and I will be showcasing it a little more in my classes at the end of January. The Blooming' Love Suite is great for Valentines Day, Anniversaries, Weddings and just sharing some love. I wanted to showcase a little something different using this set, so went with the Black and White Theme! It's now onto the lovely Maree

Thanks for stopping By!

Balloon Builders Valentine's Card - Handmade 2016 Occasions Catalogue

Hello fellow Stampers 
It's time to get excited with the launch of our newest "Handmade Occasions Catalogue going live tomorrow. This was a super simple card to make as the balloons were cut out using the new co-ordinating Balloon Punch. I did have to fussy cut the Heart Balloon. I also added a little bit of bling using the new pink glitter paper and Hearts Border Punch to create different size hearts. 
The first pink balloon was stamped once in Blushing Bride and I then stamped the other pink balloons  2 and 3 times to create the depth of colour. The Heart balloon was stamped in Melon Mambo which is one of my favourite colours.

Happy Stampin'
