Welcome to the Inkspired Artists Blog Hop 60, if your come from another site, it will be my friend Maree and I wonder what she has made for us today.
I had a lot of fun making my card, I am sure your going to want to share in some of this fun. Here is the sketch that Teneale has made for us.
Lets see if I have got it covered. Stampin’ Up! are releasing a stamp set next month, as a demonstrator we can pre order, so I decided that I would give you a little view of what it is.
Its called Carols of Christmas and your going to just love it.
I took a piece of whisper white cardstock and embossed the greeting onto it using White embossing powder. Then I inked up a stamp set called Marble, its a backgound stamp in Soft Sky, then using daubers I rubbed Dapper Denim, Elegant Eggplant, Rich Razzleberry and finally Night of Navy ink over the stamp randomly.
I then stamped it down on my piece of whisper white card front that I had embossed on. After stamping it down you need to have a soft cloth to run over the card and take the ink off the white to allow it to pop.
Then I used one of the dies to cut out the Stars and Moon, I put Silver Glimmer paper behind after attached a piece of shimmery white cardstock that had a wash of light grey over it. pleased this behind the moon.
I then mounted it onto a night of navy card stock trimmed with ribbon and added a silver strip, cut from the dies in this set.
Welcome to the another of the ESAD Blog Hops, this one is to display our favourite item from the New 2017/2018 Annual Stampin, Up! Catalogue, if your come from another blog it was most likely Terri Hawke and I wonder what her favourite is?.
I found it hard to do choose as there are so many that I love, in the end I went with Climbing Orchard, even though I have loved the Marble Background Stamp.
This set has two orchard designs, one was stamped on Powder Pink Card stock using Berry Burst ink, both from the new in colors for 2017-2019. The leaves were stamp on Lemon Lime Twist Card stock using the Lemon Lime Twist ink.
I rather love the branch out of the Seasonal Layers Thinlits, thought it gave another diminution to my projects. I stamped the Enjoy today with and then heat embossed using the beautiful Cooper embossing power. It really pops, don’t you think?
I had stamped onto Crumb Cake Card stock and then added my orchards using Dimensional’s and glue dots. Did you know Stampin’ Up now have mini Dimensional’s, they come in very handy with this project.
Keeping the theme of the same orchard, I used the Brick Wall embossing folder, smeared with Crumb Cake ink to get a motley effect on the wall and then using the same branch and flowers placed them in a small photo frame.
Such a great little frame to using with some of the Stampin’ Up! projects, as you can see in my photo. Hope you like them.
I then moved onto the next orchid design in this set, wow can you believe you get so many flower sets in one stamp.
For this card I used Whisper White Cardstock, stamping down with the Berry Burst Ink, using a dabber to color each petal using Power Pink Ink, before cutting them out with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.
I used the Petal Burst Embossing folder to give the white a background before attaching it to Berry Burst Card base.
Thanks for visiting and now your off to see what Kristal Rimmer has in store for you
Welcome everyone, I am rather all over the place at the moment, two weeks home and still trying to get into some sort of order, especially with my stamping.
If you have arrived from another blog, its most likely my good friend Maree, although I don’t seem to have heard from her very much lately, maybe she is off stamping to her hearts content.
Here is our design for this week, I loved it and knew straight away which set I was going to use.
I loved the Seasonal Layers Thinlits and thought that they would be great for this design,
I just love all the new stamps, dies and embossing folders, in this case I used the Pinewood Planks and sponged it with Shara Sand ink on Crumb Cake, wanted it to look like wood. I mounted this onto a piece of Fresh Fig cardstock (love the new colors), and trimmed to a fine border. Mounted then onto a Crumb Cake Cardstock.
I used the Fresh Fig to cut out two leaved and then using the outline leaved cut out two leaves in the Lemon Lime Twist, the centre leave I stamped (Colorful Seasons Stamp set) on the Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock with the same color cardstock then cut them out with the die.
All were then mounted onto a piece of the color theory designer services paper stack which had been mounted onto a piece of whisper white cardstock and trimmed with a fine border.
Next your off to check out what Teneale has made for you.
As this post goes live I will be just started a cruise of the Mediterranean: I am very impressed that I was able to have my card made to still play along in the INKspired blog hop as I don’t like to miss the fun. Below is the sketch that Teneale has designed for us to create with.
I am loving my card, a fun birthday card with a vibrant colour combination of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Blast, Fresh Fig and Sweet Sugarplum.
Now it is time to hop over and see what Teneale has created for us this week.
