INKspired Bloghop #93. Lovely Lattice


Welcome to our Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop!
I'm so happy you joined us! If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created using the awesome sketch Teneale Williams has designed for us this week. You may have arrived here from the lovely Kozue Smith who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the sketch below.
This was one really tricky sketch this week and with my mine already scrambled there was no logic thought going to happen for this card. My first thought was to use the Delightful daisy and I must say I wish I had taken a photo because I am sure there would have been plenty of laugher about.  I think I scrapped it at least five times before I lost count. The one good thing is I have plenty of daisies stamped, embossed, watercoloured and in both Vellum and cardstock of various colours. After some perseverance this is what I came up with.

I added a few little touches of vellum to my card for a softer effect.
Now it's on to the lovely Maree to see her lovely creation using the same sketch

INKspired Bloghop #92 Painted Seasons



Welcome to our Sunday night INKspired Blog-Hop!

I'm so happy you joined us! If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created using the awesome sketch Teneale Williams has designed for us this week. You may have arrived here from the lovely Barbara Williams who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the sketch.


This Weeks Sketch

This week I have a simple card I made using the images in the beautiful Painted Seasons Stamp set which I stamped in Calypso Coral, one at full strength and the other stamped off the other flower I use Pool Party and added a little Lemon Lime Twist using a sponge dauber. The various leaves are stamped in Pear Pizzazz, Soft sea Foam and Garden Green. The Sentiment was inked in Soft Suede which I love to use as I find it's a little softer than the Black. 

My Card using the sketch above. 


Very week I start with the intentions of doing only one or two layers but some how its just grows into 3-4 layers and sometimes more. I must say "It does lead to a huge mess in my craft space". Which Ms Teneale got a sneak peek at. I think it's going to take the next Fortnight to clean up. LOL

Inkspired Bloghop #91 - Country Floral Embossing Folder


Welcome to the first Sunday night Inkspired Blog-Hop for 2019! I'm so happy you joined us! If this is your first stop please hop over to the other team players to see what they have created using the awesome sketch Teneale Williams has designed for us this week. You may have arrived here from the lovely Kozue Smith who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the sketch.

This Weeks Sketch

My card this week gives you a sneak peek of the new Country Floral Embossing Folder which will be available as a Level 1 Sale-a-Bration gift! from the 1st March.  Sympathy cards are hard to make and I'm  guessing that's because there is often sadness in the giving of such cards. I felt the beautiful Country Floral Embossing Folder was perfect for adding a little touch of softness to my card creation. I would love your feedback on what you think so feel free to add comments at the end of this post.

My Card using the sketch above. 

I also used a little bit of the Frosted Shimmer paint for added softness but didn't realise how hard it would be to photograph. It kept looking like a muddy mess on the Blamy Blue Gingham Paper (in my photo) but thanks to the amazing and very talent Teneale Williams I was able to fix the problem. I wasn't happy with the card at first but I now see the simple elegance in it and hope you like it. Now it's on to the lovely Allison to see her lovely creation using the same sketch

MEANT TO BE - Happy Valentine's

Hi Bloggers, 

I can't believe we are into February already, it only seems like yesterday we were getting over Christmas. Everyone knows that Love is in the air in the month of February and Valentine’s Day, is a day that many Australians celebrate with someone they love.
Many Choose it as a romantic date to get married. My beautiful friend did just that and got married on this day. My Friend's hubby secretly asked me to make a card he could give that was a little different from one you can buy in the shop. I straight away thought of a shaker card as they fun to make and equally lovely to receive, and the beautifully coloured Sequin Assortment from the 2018 Holiday Catalogue, would be perfect to add a little touch of colour. 


This is the card I put together using the beautiful MEANT TO BE Bundle on page 6 of the 2018 - 2019  Occasions catalogue. The BE MINE Stitched Framelits Dies has a collection of various sized hearts and a little bundle of hearts grouped together. This is what I used to create the hearts to add to the sequins as part of the shaker window. I did do a little fussy cutting of flowers from the All My Love Designer Series Paper. 

Stampin' Up! also included another beautiful bundle Forever Lovely. These two sets are so pretty and can be used for more than just Valentine cards.  If you would like to purchase the sets you can click on my shop now button. Now is the perfect time to purchase anything on your wish list as Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and that means lots of freebies. For every $ 90 you spend you can pick from various products including stamp sets, ribbon, paper or some lovely Butterfly Elements.


This is another Valentines card that I made using the Forever Lovely Designer Series Paper, simple but every elegant - Don't you think!

Hello and welcome to another Inkspired Blog-Hop! I'm so happy you joined us! If this is your first stop please hop over to the other 3 team players to see what they have created using the awesome sketch Teneale Williams has designed for us this week. You may have arrived here from the lovely Kozue Smith who I'm sure has inspired you with what she has created using the sketch.

I can't wait to hear all the exciting news from Teneale and mama Bear (Ms Barbara) when they get back from attending the Stampin' Up! 30th Anniversary at On - Stage in Orlando.  I was lucky enough to attend On-Stage in Brisbane this time and today have arrived in Hervey Bay for a much need little bit of R & R.


This Week's Sketch

This week I have created my card using the Signs of Santa Bundle. This is my favorite suite in the entire catalog. I love whimsy images that make cards fun and light spirited. The added texture of the white flock on the Designer Series Paper makes the card so much more interesting.Stampin' Up! has out done themselves with this little number: not only does it have matching DSP it also has Thinlits that match both the paper and the Stamp set... I tots love this set. It is a real must have that is so versatile.



I almost forgot that you can pair it with the memories and more pack to create some really simple and quick cards because if you are like me I always leave my own cards till late as Christmas cards are my biggest seller the year.


My Card


I hope you have been inspired to have a go at creating so really super fun and easy cards yourself to give to your family and love ones with Christmas as there really isn't anything better than receiving a beautiful handmade card.

Off for a night walk along the beautiful esplanade here at Hervey Bay

Next on the Hop is the Lovely Maree McIntosh
