Inkspired Blog Hop 81

Good evening and welcome to another Inkspired blog hop! You may have come from Narelle or maybe you are starting here.

Here is our sketch:


And here is my card:



I wanted to do some colouring today, but I didn't want an ordinary red mushroom. The more I thought about it the more a purple mushroom appealed to me. It almost seems like it is from an Enid Blyton novel. The children were sent to find the rare purple mushroom and there were two mice talking under it.

Products used:

Stamps: Itty Bitty Greetings, Sweet Storybook, Marbled
Inks: Tuxedo Black Memento, Call Me Clover, Highland Heather
Stampin Blends: Call Me Clover, Highland Heather, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo (laid down first in the ears and then coloured over)
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White, Call Me Clover
Designer Series Paper: In Colour 2018-2020 Designer Series Paper
Dies: Layering Circles, Storybook Scene Thinlits.

Next is Barbara. I am really looking forward to seeing what she has made (especially as I almost chose the same stamp as her!).



Until next time,

Allison

Inkspired Blog Hop 77

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop! We have six wonderful projects for you to look at and inspire you. You may have come from the amazing Narelle or you might be starting here.

Here is our starting sketch:


Here is my card:



Last blog hop I made a card for the woman who organised the Harmony Day activities at my school. The card for tonight is one of the thank you cards I made for the parent volunteers. I made 3 cards (all exactly the same) for the parents who went into different classrooms to teach the children about the country they are from and complete an art activity from that culture.

I used Fresh Fig and Whisper White yardstick. The daisy is from the Daisy Delight bundle, stamped in Fresh Fig. The Designer Series Paper is Fresh Florals and the ribbon is Fresh Fig sheer ribbon. The circle is from the Stitched Shapes framelits and then I decided that the daisy needed a Gold Faceted Gem in the middle.

Next on the hop is Maree. I can't wait to see her incredible creation.



Until next time,
Allison

Good evening and Happy Easter! We decided to go ahead with this weeks blog hop and I am really looking forward to seeing what the others have created. You may have come from Narelle or you may be starting here.


Here is this week's sketch:



And here is my card:



I wanted to make a card for someone at work. She worked very hard at organising Harmony Day activities at the school I work at.

I used Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Fresh Fig inks with Watercolour Wings stamp set to create the butterfly and sentiment. I used the Square Framelits and Stitched Framelits to create the squares. The washi tape is from the Pick A Pattern set. The Designer Series Paper is the Fresh Florals in Fresh Fig.

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

Until next time,

Allison
