InspireINK Blog Hop – Romance

Good Morning,

Welcome to January’s InspireINK blog hop. This month we are getting romantic with our theme….

As always please click the next button at the bottom of this post to carry on hopping through the other projects.

My project uses the Dear Doily bundle…. It is Pink but there’s not a heart in sight.

To make the background, I heat embossed the small doily image across the bottom corner of the card.

Pink inks were added over the top. The embossed areas resist the ink.

The larger portion of the sentiment was added with Lovely Lipstick ink.

Using the Stamparatus, two of the florals were stamped with Granny Apple Green and Lovely Lipstick inks. These were die cut and adhered to the card.

The second portion of the sentiment was then added over the top of stems with a small Die cut element underneath.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin ‘!

The Great Card Swap

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing a card I sent out as part of a swap group. The theme was “congratulations”.

I chose a simple design using the Well Said bundle allowing the sentiment to remain the focal point.

A splatter image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set was used to add colour to the background, increasing the intensity around where the sentiment would be positioned.

Three sets of leaves were die cut from white card stock and adhered with Multipurpose glue. The panel was added to a Gray Granite card base.

Night of Navy ink was used to stamp the sentiment. This was adhered over the bottom edge of Die cuts using dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

The hats were stamped in Stazon black ink and coloured with watercolour Pencils and adhered using dimensionals.

Inspire.Create #024

Good Morning,

I was spoiled for choice when it came to designing this card for this week’s Inspire.Create challenge.

The design team have made some fabulous pretty cards that you can on the Inspire.Create blog here!

I plumped for the Perennial Birthday stamp set. At first, I thought I would use pink ink, but finally settled on purple and blue.

I began by Stamping the florals on to a white card layer, (4 by 5-3/4 inches).

Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green, Gray Granite and Balmy Blue ink built the background. Some speckles of Soft Sea Foam filled in the white spaces and added some texture.

The bottom corners were rounded before adhering to a Granny Apple Green card base.

White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon and Rose metallic thread were looped and secured on to the card. The sentiment was added over the top with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

You’re Awesome

Hello Everyone,

Today I am taking part in the Inspire.Create.Challenge.

This week the theme is Kids!

The design team have provided some inspiration on the blog. You can see their projects here!

I have chosen to use the Treehouse Adventure stamp set. Every kid dreams of one of these right?

The stamping has been kept simple, using various brown inks. The canopy was stamped with Lemon Lime Twist and Granny Apple Green. Pacific Point was used as an accent colour.

I cut down the panel and rounded the corners.

A piece of Gray Granite designer series paper was cut diagonally for added interest.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Inspire.Create #018

Hi there Everyone,

Today I am sharing my entry for the Inspire.Create.Challenge.

You can see what the design team have created here!

I decided to use one of the retiring stamp sets, Cool Treats and coordinating dies and mixed them with a retiring colour palette.

I started by constructing the cad base, first of all with Tempting Turquoise and adding Peekaboo Peach and Wild Wasabi. Finally, a white layer was stamped with the sprinkles image with Tempting Turquoise ink.

The central topper was made by adding a 3 inch square of Whisper White to Wild Wasabi and Peekaboo Peach layers.

The ice cream cones were cut from Crumb Cake card stock. First and second generation Sweet Sugarplum ink was used to stamp the ice cream.

These were adhered to the topper with dimensionals.

Finally, the word “sunshine” was die cut from Tempting Turquoise card stock.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed below.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Stampin’!
