Inkspired Blog Hop 39

Hi everyone and welcome to another Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from the remarkable Renee who I am sure has created an amazing card.

Our sketch for today is:

I had quite a few different ideas for this sketch but finally decided on this card:

I have made this card for a friend's birthday. She recently commented about how she always wanted a blue hydrangea but couldn't grow one. I knew her birthday was coming up and decided to make her one.

I altered the sketch slightly to make the rectangle bigger. I used the Thoughtful Branches Bundle to stamp and cut the flower in Marina Mist. The stem is made from Old Olive. I used the stamp set Balloon Celebration for the sentiment.

Our next artist is the marvellous Maree. I am sure she has made a magnificent card!

Bye for now!

Inkspired Blog Hop 38

Hello and welcome to Inkspired Blog Hop 38. You may have come from Renee who I know will have made a fabulous card.

This is the sketch that Teneale provided us with:

I had an idea for this sketch, however I left it too late to order my supplies so I had to come up with something else. I eventually came up with this:

I was puzzling over which colours to use and then I noticed how nice the grey was on our new chairs. So I decided on a combination of Smoky Slate and Pool Party. The stamped flower is from the Flourishing Phrases set and I stamped several times (in Pool Party) before re-inking. 

I die cut the flower from the Flourish Thinlits in Smoky Slate and then went over it with Wink of Stellar to brighten it up. The ribbon is 1/8 inch ribbon in Silver. 

I knew that it needed a sentiment and decided to use the Happy Birthday stamp from the Confetti Celebrations set. I then used a new favourite in the Classic Label Punch to make it stand out.
I hope you like it!

Our next artist is the amazing Maree. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us.

Bye for now!
