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".

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


INKspired #131 Colour Challenge

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...

Welcome to the first Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop for 2021.Every year I start with lots of great notions and ideals of what the year ahead will bring. After the events of 2020 I'm hoping each and every one of us will have lots of love, health and happiness this coming year.
