INKspired Blog Hop 41

Welcome to the INKSpired Artists Blog Hop 41, I am always delighted to participate in these hops as they make me do a little bit of creativeness without thinking big picture.  Like a class card.

If your come from another INKspired Artist it would have been the very talented Louise who I know you all love.  Now let’s go see the sketch which is designed by Teneale and this week is nice quick sketch, that’s if you don’t watercolour it.

The card was to have a sentiment across the bottom of the card…………..boring, I decided to mice mine up a little.  Story to this stamp set, one of my customers who does her shopping online in my shop, somehow got excited when shopping and ordered two off every set she wanted………………….she rang me to ask if I could help.   Thus I bought the Mice from her and some of my other customers bought the extra sets………………how mice are my ladies………….(haha get it, really nice)

Using the smaller set of three Mice, I stamped them on Water color paper using Archival Black Ink.  The using a blender pen colored them in.  As the were all carrying different little decorations and parcels, I thought the sentiment, ‘Its time to deck the Halls! was very fitting, don’t you?

Let’s go look at the finished card, where I have embossed the base of the card with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, then sponged around it with Mint Macaroon.

I used a mixture of Cherry Cobbler and Real Red, Emerald Green, a little Curry Crush, then gave my little mice a touch of Crumb Cake.  I used the beautiful new Copper Embossing Powder for the sentiment, love how it pops and the extra stripe is the Copper Foil.

Now let’s go see what Teneale has made for you.

I just love the new 2016 Holiday Catalogue and was exited to know that there was going to be a blog hop to display some of the great stamps.  We have had many stars over the years, however I feel that this set called Star of Light is the most versatile and beautiful that Stampin’ Up! have made.

 

Barbara Williams|Star of Light|ESAD Blog HopLove the different ways to use this set, and hope you do too.  How nice would that look on your Christmas table?

Not to stop there, here are more ideas for this set.

Navy 5

 

For this card I used the Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Papers, also in the new catalogue, love the stars that are on this, then I used the reverse side of the paper and using the new Foam Roller, I rolled over the card front.

Star of Light

Using Navy Blue ink pad I rolled the color onto the card front.
