Inkspired Blog Hop 58

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop. You may be starting here or you may have come from Renee. Don't forget to go around and all the blogs to see the amazing creations!

Here is our latest sketch:


A couple of weeks ago, it was Mum's birthday. I decided to be a little organised and make her card based on a future sketch. Here it is:



I decided to use the Delightful Daisy Suite. Almost everything on this card is Delightful Daisy! I decided that for the leaf element I would create a negative space. The Faceted Gem gives the flower a focus. The sentiment is from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and the ribbon is the Gold 1/8" Ribbon.

Next on the hop is Maree.



I hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend! Until next time!

Inkspired Blog Hop 57

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from the lovely Renee who has been sick. I hope she (and her family) are feeling better soon.

Teneale provides a sketch each fortnight and this is the latest one.


I needed to make a birthday card for my uncle last week so here is what he received:



I decided to create a masculine card this fortnight as I don't make many. My uncle's favourite colour is red so the card is mostly Cherry Cobbler. With the Soft Suede ink, Wood Textures DSP and Very Vanilla Cardstock I though this card gave an autumnal theme. I used the Sheltering Tree and Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp sets and the Linen Thread to complete the card. The border punches I had didn't really suit the card so I created a border by fussy cutting some logs.

Next on the hop is Maree. I can't wait to see what she has created.!



Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 56

Happy Mother's Day and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop! You may have come from Teneale. I can't wait to see what she made.

Here is the sketch for this blog hop:


Here is my card:


(Sorry for the bad photo, it has been cloudy all day)

I decided to use some new and old products. I used the Floral Phrases stamp set in Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide. I fussy cut them and then attached them to Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Powder Pink. The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Sentiments and punched in the Classic Label punch. I then punched it in Tranquil Tide and Berry Burst. I also used the new Finely Woven Ribbon.

Next on the hop is Maree. I wonder what she has made.



Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 54

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee or be starting here. Don't forget to hop around to all the blogs and see the ladies wonderful creations.

Here is the latest sketch:



This seems an easy sketch but the flower/leaf embellishment in the corner made it a bit difficult. In the end I came up with this:



This is another photo of the card:



Did you notice the difference? The dresses are attached by magnets and can be changed according to what dress the recipient might like best.

I decided to keep the card simple. The Designer Series Paper is Pop of Pink and the strip down the side is the matching washi tape. The stamp set is Beautiful You.

Next on the hop is Maree. I wonder what she has made this fortnight.



Until next time,

Allison

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may be starting with me or you may have come from Teneale. Don't forget to hop all the way around to see all the different creations.

This fortnight we have a landscape card:



Here is my card:


I haven't used Sweet Sugarplum with Bermuda Bay and I wanted to see what they were like together. The Designer Series Paper is from Cupcakes and Carousels and the Glimmer Paper is Sweet Sugarplum from Sale-A-Bration. The stamp set is also a Sale-A-Bration set called Make a Medallion.

Next on the hop is Maree. I look forward to seeing her creation.

Inkspired Blog Hop 52



Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee or you may be starting the hop here. Don't forget to hop around to all the blogs for your fortnightly inspiration.

Here is our latest sketch:


This is how I interpreted the sketch:



Unfortunately a sympathy card was required this fortnight, so I thought I would save doubling up and make the sympathy card my blog hop card.

I used Marina Mist, Wild Wasabi, Pear Pizzazz and Soft Suede inks with the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration stamp set. The flower is fussy cut and attached with dimensionals to add some height.

The paper is the Marina Mist paper from the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack. I used Teeny Tiny Sentiments for the sentiment and punched it out with the Classic Label Punch.

Next on the hop is Maree. I am sure she has created an amazing card as always.


Until next time!
