Inkspired BlogHop 64

Welcome to the 64 BlogHop of the Inkspired Artists, I am always happy to participate as it makes me step outside my comfort zone.  If your come from another participant its most likely Maree and I am wondering what she has made for us.

I rather loved this sketch and found it easy to come up with a nice little design using it as I did a spur of the moment trip back to Young, my childhood town and took a trip down memory lane.  The set I choose to use is called HEARTLAND, its such a cute stamp set and so easy to use.

I choose to use the colours of Curry Crush, Early Espresso and Whisper White as my colour palate.By Babara Williams | Heartland Stamp Set from Stampin Up

I stamped down the little person going off with the ducks and a stick, I sort of thought they might be heading off to the creek, just as I used to do as a child, especially if I had been fighting with my siblings, it was always safer to take off on the farm for the day.  Children today have missed out the fun of living on a farm.

I stamped in Early Expresso Ink, then just spot highlighted the overalls.  I used the delightful paper out of the Birthday Memories Designer Series.  Thought this was appropriate for my little walk down memory lane.

Esad Casing Holiday Cattie

Hello and Welcome, if your started at another site it was most likely Rose Parker or if your started here, then you’re in for a treat with the ESAD 2017 Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop.

I know I am always excited to get a new catalogue into my hands and check up all the new stamps and dies.   I decided to only go with one stamp set and show you just how versatile it could be.

I chose to use traditional  colours of green and red, however I have been using non traditional at others times and will blog them later for you.

The set I used is called Every Good Wish, which is a very versatile one, let’s go look.

For this one I used the Be Merry and white embossed onto Real Red cardstock, cut out with the lots of Labels Framelit then mounted onto a piece of Whisper White cardbase that had been embossed with the Holly Embossing folder that had the leaves and berries coloured with markers before being put through the sizzix machine.  See the result below.

Again I used the Holly embossing folder but this time on old olive card stock, stamped the Peace Love and Joy on a piece of Whisper White and then cut out with the Lots of Labels Framelits, cutting an extra on in Real Red, cut in half and mount onto the back, then used markers to colour the holly and berry’s on the top and bottom of the sentiment.

Carried the small berry and holly inside of the card.

Who has had a play with the embossing paste?  Its so much fun and super easy to use, so used this as the background of the card and then just stamped and cut out oval using the layering ovals.

I then mounted the Red onto White and then mounted onto a old olive card base.

Now who doesn’t need a take to put on that special present at Christmas, use your Decorative Label punch, and your oval dies, little stamp and its done.

I do hope you enjoyed my cards and now your off to see what Jessie has made for you.

Sketch design by Teneale Williams | INKspired blog hop 63

I decided I wanted to keep it clean and simple, using our new thick Very Vanilla Cardstock as my base and the beautiful Bundle of Love Specialty designer Series Papers along with the Gold Foil.

This is what it looks like, I also used the die out of the Colorful Seasons Bundle for the leaf in Pumpkin Pie and embossed the Thinking of You sentiment.

Blog Hop 62

Welcome to the 62 Blog Hop of the Inkspired Artists, and if your just started here, Welcome.

Blog Hops are a great way to make us step out of our comfort zone and come up with some amazing projects, that in turn gives other stampers some inspiration.

So lets see what Teneale has given us to work with.

Yeah, Holiday Catalouge is due to showcase on the 1st September, who is excited?  I know I am and couldn’t wait to get my hands on some new stamps.  So come and see what I have done, mind you not traditional Christmas Colors.

I had my eye on the Santa’s Suit set, even sat it on my desk along with Good Tidings which I was a little intrigued with as it appeared to have six steps to stamp the image.  I knew I had to try it to at least know what it would look like stamped out.

So I used the new Quilt Top Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, which is 6 x 6 perfect for quilting designs.  I choose as my colours the beautiful new in colors of Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Fig and brought in some Crumb Cake.  I carried the colours through from stamping to card stock and then added a small piece of Gold.


I embossed the sentiment at the bottom, I always try and do exactly like the sketch.  but feel that it might have shown better if I had used just the white and embossed on it.

I tried to carry the theme over into the inside as well, see below.

Embossed and same trim as the front, don’t you love our new ribbons, beautiful.


Thanks for stopping by, now your off to check out Teneale.

Blog Hop 61

Hi and welcome to our blog hop, if your started Maree then I am sure you love what she has made for us.

I have to tell you I pondered, but then I often ponder on what to make, then I decided if I choose some of the beautiful specialty paper that I could use.

I chose the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series, and the very versatile Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the matching Colorful Seasons Stamp Set.

Lets see if I got it right.

I love the words “Just Breathe”, think it can be used for many different cards for several different occasions.  I embossed this is Gold, matching the gold foil on the designer paper.

I used the die that’s in the set to make a scallop for the top and bottom and there are some little flowers that I cut out to represent the two little bits hanging.  We now have very cute little sequin that I used as my trim at the top of the card, then attached the two flowers.


On the inside I embossed the word Congratulations and then the one saying Life is a beautiful thing.

Now are you wondering who might be getting this card?

Leave a comment telling suggesting whom this might be suitable for.

Your now off to see what Teneale has made for us.

Here are the items I used.

3 Little Piggies

I wasn’t a fan of the little piggies, but then I saw a card made by one of our team members Alison who used hers for her dads birthday.

I used the new Powder Pink card stock for my little piggies.  Hope you like it.


And her is my inside, I think he is trying to run away.
