INKspired Artists Blog Hop 39

Welcome to the IINSpired Artist 39 Blog Hop. If you have already started on the hop you will have come from the very talented Louise Sharp who I am sure has created something very cute.

I just think I am so lucky I get to be between both Louise and Teneale, both of them make me lift my game a little.  Not that I want to compete, but love both their work.

This is the sketch we were given to work with,  as there are just so many new stamps out in the new Holiday Catalogue I thought I could make a card from this catalogue.

I chose to us the Father Christmas Stamp Set, there is another one called Christmas Magic, think both of these are my favourite ones……………we not really as I love nearly all of them, even the Halloween set.

I began my stamping out the image of Santa on White, Craft and Very Vanilla Cardstock then using my markers started to colour them to see which one I licked best.  I decided on the Vanilla and using my markers started to colour them in.  I started with the tree and then the smaller toys then bag and trumpet.  It was so much fun and was the third thing I have coloured from the new catalogue.  I left Santa to last as his colour is rather full on and I didn’t want to paint other items by mistaken.

I am very pleased with my effort wit Santa, see him below.  Don’t you just love the new embossing folder, its so detailed and gorgeous.

Now your off to see the inspiring Teneale, I call her inspiring as she always inspires me to step outside my little comfort zone and do more.

Blog Hop 38

Welcome to our 38th INKSpired Artists Blog Hop, if you have just begun here than, if not your will have come from Maree.  I wonder what she has made for us today?  Don’t you just live her bush photos? She is one of the lucky ones who lives in the country as opposed me who came from the country to the city at a young age.

We were given a simple sketch, which as usual I over thought, thus over achieving, but hey I have a card ready for my class this week and my ladies are going to love it.  Come to class to see?

This is the sketch and as you can see, it only really needs to have a sentiment, so lets see my final card.

I used “You’re the Best” out of the Watercolor words and embossed them with the new embossing power with glitter in it, that you can all buy next month when the new Seasonal Catalogue comes out.  Who would like one sent to them?  If you’re not a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator and would like you very own catalogue, comment on my blog and I will shoot one out to you.

Swirly Birds seems to be extremely popular in the current catalogue and I have used that for the strip across the card and then cut out two circles using the new Layering Circles.  Don’t you just love how fine they cut.  Allows a little pop of colour on your page.

 

Lets go see what Teneale has created for you this week.
