I didn't have much time to spend creating this week as I had my friend Michelle visiting for the weekend. 
Michelle and I have spent most of our time getting all my retired items priced and ready to go for the biggest Craft sale Next week end. If you would like more information please feel free to email me at ncmacey @hotmail.com 

Below is my card that I made for our challenge this week.

I must say I found this sketch a little tricky at first. 
For this card I have used the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper and a Lovely new in-colour called Cinnamon Cider. I tried to keep it simple with layering a piece of vellum behind the DSP. 
Thanks for stopping By. 

Next up is my beautiful and talented friend Teneale Williams

 Hello crafty friends. Welcome to another Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop! for 2021. I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend. I love being able to play long each fortnight with the INKspired Team members. If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created using the awesome Colour Combo for this week. You may have come here from the lovely Katrina Healy who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the Colour Combination below.

I love a colour challenge as it is designed to make you think outside the box. Teneale  really did well putting this colour combo together. I straight away thought of the Simply Succulents Stamp set as it lends its self to greens and felt it was a prefect choice for using our Stampin' Blends.
Most times I use all the colours but only used four of them this time. 
My project this week is a card created using the Simply Succulents stamp set from Stampin'Up!.
If you are a lover of plants then you are going to love this set. Combine it with the new beautiful BLOOM WHERE YOU'RE PLANTED Bundle in the New 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue and you'll have a complete Garden!

Now it's over to my Beautiful friend Teneale Williams to see her amazing creation using the same colour combo...

INKspired Showcase #135 Dandy Garden

 Hello crafty friends. Welcome to another Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop! I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend.  My weekend was huge. It started with a drive to Sydney to celebrate my beautiful friend Teneale Williams 40th Birthday. Wow what an amazing day we all had. Then it was off to Another great friend's house ( Michelle Lennon) to craft till dawn..... I find myself now trying to write my blog Post with a computer that the screen is continually turning black. Now that can only mean money!

I love being able to play long each fortnight with the INKspired Team members. If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created showcasing the beautiful Dandy Garden suite.  You may have arrived here from the lovely Allison who has used the beautiful Dandy Garden Suite below. 


The card I created is a version on many that can be found on the internet. I am sorry as being a little sleep deprived I don't remember the name given to this type of card. My thought was I wanted to show case as much product in the suite as possible. I used the beautiful DSP, stamps and Dies.  There is a little sneak peak of something very special coming out in the new Annual Catalogue.

Hello crafty friends. Welcome to another Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop! I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend. I love being able to play long each fortnight with the INKspired Team members. If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created showcasing the beautiful True Love Designer Series Paper. You may have arrived here from my beautiful friend Teneale Williams who always Inspires us all with what she has created and I'm sure it's no different using these beautiful papers below.


I have had lots happening this week so not much time to play in the craft room.  I received some very good news from my specialist this week. Much to my relief I have been given the " ALL CLEAR" but will still need surgery sooner rather than later. So off to Sydney this week for another consult. I resigned from my current position with not set plans, Enjoyed crafting with a friend whilst altogether forgetting I had a Blog-Hop this week. Thanks to my beautiful friend Teneale for hearing my cries and slotting me in at the end to play along... 


My Creations


I totally love a Black and White theme and had so much fun creating these cards.
I started off thinking about creating some male cards using the Handsomely Suited Bundle but after creating 3 cards they just didn't work for me. It was back to the drawing board. I created these after being inspired by another very talent crafter and friend " Julie Gilson". 

Individual card Photos



Over on the INKspired team Facebook Page, Teneale creates challenges for everyone on the team to play along too if they wish. This month it's about Sympathy and Thinking of you! 
They are often the hardest cards to make when needed. I feel the True Love DSP is prefect for this. I added a couple of embossing folders and fussy cut the wording. Hope I have inspired you to get creative with this beautiful DSP. 
Now it's over to the lovely Kozue Smith

Hello crafty friends. Welcome to another Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop! for 2021. I hope you have had an enjoyable weekend. I love being able to play long each fortnight with the INKspired Team members. If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created using the awesome Colour Combo for this week. You may have arrived here from the lovely Teresa Irwin who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the Colour Combination below.


The Colour Combo
I have to say this colour combo was a little tricky. I lost count of the different pieces of cardstock I used to create this card. LOL. In my head I was always going to use Granny Apple Green but it just did come together for me. In the end Pumpkin Pie was the winner.


My Card


With any of the colour challenges we are allow to use either some or all of the colours with the addition of White, Black or Vanilla. I struggle with this as I love Crumb Cake for a base. The Simply Succulents stamp set from Stampin'Up! was a prefect choice to be able to use all of the colours togethers. Before the introduction of Stampin Blends I really didn't do much colouring at all.  I used a combination of all the colours starting with Light and DarkPumpkin Pie for the Pot. For the Succulents at the top I used Just Jade light and lightened it by using the Colour Lifter to give it some variation. Then on the second little succulent I used Light Granny Apple Green and Light Daffodil Delight. For the largest Succulent I blended Both Light and Dark Pumpkin Pie and Both of the Granny Apple Greens.  For the succulent next to the largest succulent it was a combo of Light Jade and Light Granny Apple Green. For the very last little succulents I used Light and Dark Granny Apple Green. DONE! 
Now it's over to Julie Martin to see her creation using the same colour combo...
