Welcome, Easter has been and gone, now the kids are on school holiday, WOW how time flows.  Last weekend we attended Stampin’ Up! OnStage at Luna Park, where we get to see the new Catalouge for 2018/2019.

It’s always a great and often exciting time for us, especially this year as not only did we get some great stamp sets, we also go to see the beautiful new colors coming on the 1st June.

Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us this fortnight, I loved it.

As soon as I had received this stamp set, THANK YOU Stampin’ Up!, I know I would love to color him with my Blends.  Lets go check him out.

How stinking cute is that, I’m calling him Hippo, and I think he’s a little like me………lol

I choose to us Light and Dark Smokey Slate Blends and added extra shading by using the Blends Color Lifter.  My little bird was colored with a new color called Dark Pineapple Punch Blends and his beak in a touch of Calypso Coral, under Hippos feet I used light Old Olive Blends to add a touch of grass.

I am so happy with how he turned out.  The colors used were Whisper White, Pineapple Punch, Soft Gray and Dark Gray.

The stamp set is called Animal Outing, and as well as him there is a sweet Giraffe head a Kangaroo with Joey in his pouch as well as a branch with a little Foggy on it.

 

I used to color the branch was the light crumb cake for the branch and touches of light old olive on the leaves with some shading of the crumb cake on the leaf.  The little frog was Pineapple Punch with a small touch of Old Olive on this trunk.

Little secret about to be revealed, when Teneale was younger she had the nick name of Froggy, so this to me belongs to my froggy, as together WE MAKE A GREAT PAIR.  Its her birthday tomorrow and I think she would like this for her birthday card.  What do you think?

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

Hello and welcome to this 76 BlogHop on this lovely Easter Sunday. Now you would expect that we might do an Easter Card………………Sad Face, no I didn’t.
Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us to use, I rather like being given a sketch as a starting point for a card.

I decided to pull out an older stamp set, Sweet Cupcake, been sitting on my desk and though as I am always after birthday cards I should use it.

 

Now as you might realise, its a 3 step stamping set, Grrrrrrrrrr you say.  Not a problem with the new Stampin’ Up! Stamparatus.

I have miss placed my original one, but still had one of the plates, I must have put it in a safe place and am sure I will find it soon.  Anyway I have just received my second one, so no problem, I was able to set up the 3 stamps one on each please and on the opposite side the ice for the top of the cake.

Now how easy would that make your class?

 

Now did I get the sketch right?  Please leave a comment, we love comments.  Good or bad.

Hope your had a lovely Easter, I know I have.  Kids have just gone home after being stuffed with Chocolate.

Now your off to see what Teneale has made for us.

 

Bloghop 75

Welcome to our blog hop tonight, hope your all had a lovely weekend with family and friends.  If your just come from another blog, its most likely the delightful little mumma, Renee who’s work is nothing short of exquisite.

Each fortnight Teneale designs a sketch for us, sometimes we are seriously challenged and other times its ok.  Do lets go see what I have done.I must say, I looked outside my circle here, opps did I even use a circle? I think not.

I thought I would use a flower for my circle, mainly because I love coloring, whether it be water coloring , pencils or Blendies.  I choose to use Shimmery White cardstock and heat embossed the beautiful large flower from the Beautiful Day Stamp set.  I have to tell you it was one of the last sets I bought because I thought the lines where just to wide.

 

However like all things we change our mind and I now love it and wondered why would I not like this?

I used white embossing powder to emboss the flower, this gave me lovely raised edges for the pools of color to collect in each bud allowing me to get some deep and some light petals.

I then cut out the flower and mounted it on the lovely Petal Passion Black and White designer series papers for a striking effect.  My color of choice was Berry Burst reinker, I think its lovely.

 

Inside was just finished with a part of the flower and colored.

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

 

Perennial Birthday

Hi and welcome to our 74 blog hop, sketch by Teneale Williams, as show below.

If your come from Renee wonder what she has made for us.

 

I decided to go with the beautiful paper that is in the second release of Sale-a-Bration and coloured it with fresh fig straight from the ink pad.  Then wiped it off with a tissue removing some of the ink, but allowing the beautiful silver and gold to show through.

I used silver embossing power on the greetings, positioned with the wonder Stampparatus to position the words.  Made it so easy to line them up.

For the inside I added an embossed greeting, from the same set as the front.

Now your off to see what Teneale has made for you.

 

 

Inkspired Artist Bloghop 73

Hi and Welcome to another Bloghop of the Inkspired Artists, this is our 73rd one and that means we have been hopping along for??? not sure of how long, but definitely a while.Above is our sketch that Teneale has designed for us, quite an interesting one really, with the splash across it and a sentiment.

Did think a little about the splash, then it came to me, it didn’t have to be a splash as such, it could represent a large word.  Maybe the word could be Sorry.

I work colleague has recently and very suddenly this week lost his wife.  She loved purple and he has asked that her funeral be a sea of purple, I know he is really struggling and a nicer person you could go a long way to meet.

So in memory of Sue, this is for Glenn…………….I am sad and sorry for your loss.  God Bless you and your family.

Now I will quietly lead you off to Teneale and see what she has for you.

Inkspired Blog Hop 72

Welcome, if your come from another stamper its most likely that sweet little Mumma Renee and below is our sketch for this week.

From the moment I looked at the sketch I knew that I was going to use the You’re Inspiring stamp set from the new catalogue, don’t have one, ask your demonstrator I am sure she would love to send you one.

I am love coloring in, so this was a perfect stamp set to use, for any of you that follow me on my blog you would have seen it used before, but at that time I used the large Daffodil.  This time I chose the smaller one.

I do hope you love this card as much as I do.  Now your off to see what? not sure who is playing.

Wow, you’re going to be in for a treat, your off to check out Narelle Macy‘s and I think she might be using the delightful little Panda.

 

Inspired Artist Blog Hop 71

Welcome, not sure if your just starting here at my blog or you have come from Renee, either way, welcome we are glad to have you come and check out this weeks hop.

You know when you see something and think I don’t need that.  This had been my initial reaction to the Myths & Magic Stamp Set and the Formalist in the new occasions catalogue, so I didn’t buy them.

It so happened that my upline and dear daughter thought Hey mum could do something great with these and she bought for me the bundle along with the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.

So I decided that these little mystical people would look great on this sketch, thus I stamped out a page of different one and sat for the day on Saturday and colored them with my Blendies, now if you don’t own any, you need to at least try them at some time.

I then took some of my little pieces that I had cut out and started playing with some of the papers to see what went with what, thus this was how I choose this paper, is very magical in itself, beautiful and sparkly.

As they are so cute, I when and looked at another one and started to put him together, hope you like this one too

Here he is, so cute, and I am now in love with these little bundle.

I suppose we should often be open to what we do and do not like, now this is my favourite one and its just so much fun to color.

My ladies are in for a great class this week, as we will do one of them on Friday class and the other on Saturday class.

Please leave a comment we all love comments.

Now of to see what Teneale has made for us.
