Inkspired Blog Hop 68

Good evening and welcome to another Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from the wonderful Renee or you may be starting here. Don't forget to see all of the wonderful creations.

Here is our sketch:


This is my creation:



I created this card with the idea of Santa sitting in front of the fire in his pyjamas and then realising that the snow had started falling, rushed out to get his suit off the line. This appeals to my inner child.

I used the Around the World Designer Series Paper, Thick Whisper White Cardstock and Window Sheet to create the main card. The stamp and die bundle is called Santa's Suit. I used the new Stampin' Blends to colour the images. Alcohol markers are great for colouring and creating a light/dark effect.

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




Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 67

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee or you may be starting here.

Here is our latest sketch:



Here is my card:



You may be thinking that my combination of the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper and Cherry Cobbler is a bit unusual. There is method to my madness though. Today is my parents' 40th wedding anniversary and that is the ruby celebration. I have also used the Number of Years stamp and the Eclectic Layers Framelits. I did use Wink of Stella on the ruby but it doesn't really show in the picture.

Next on the hop is Maree. Don't forget to go around to all of the blogs to see the wonderful creations.



Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 66

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee or you may be starting here. Don't forget to go around and check out all the marvellous cards.

This is the latest sketch:



And here is my card:



There is a story behind my card this week. The story starts a month ago when someone ran up the back of my car. This then pushed me into the car in front of me. Well my car was booked in to be repaired on the 23rd of October.

On Wednesday this week I HAD to be at work at 7:45. We were taking 80 kids into the city and then spending the night at Taronga Zoo. Well my car decided to overheat on Wednesday morning and had to be towed. The people from the dealership say that the car overheated due to damage from the accident. I was frantically calling my work colleagues and family trying to get to work. I was hoping to be there by the time they started walking to the station (approximately 8:30).

I arrived at work at 9:30. I had to drop off my luggage, walk to the station and meet up with my group in Sydney. I caught the train fine and even got off at the right station, but I then managed to get lost on the way to the museum. Luckily a phone call to Dad helped me to find the way.

I finally met up with my group at about 10:45. We then spent the rest of the day walking around the Botanical Gardens in the rain and spent the night at the zoo. We loved the overnight excursion however, we didn't enjoy the rain all night long or the seals barking all night!

This card is for the teacher I shared a tent with. Her humour and ability to navigate Taronga Zoo are amazing.

The card is created with the Painted Harvest and Label Me Pretty. I have used Berry Burst, Rich Razzleberry and Bermuda Bay. The ribbon is Bermuda Bay Stitched and the scallops are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.

Next on the hop is Barbara who I had the pleasure of seeing yesterday. I am really looking forward to seeing what she has created.



Until next time!

Inkspired Blog Hop 65

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop. You may be coming from Renee or you may be starting here. Make sure you hop around to all the blogs for some fabulous inspiration.

We always start with a sketch and here is the latest:


I must admit that I had the idea for this card last year, but I ran out of time to make it. When I saw this sketch I decided it was time to use the idea.



I used the Holly Berry Builder punch in Garden Green and Real Red. The ribbon is the Gold 1/8 Ribbon and the Designer Series Paper is Quilted Christmas.

Next on the hop is Maree. She always inspires me to do more with my stamping.



Until next time!

Inkspired Blog Hop 64

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may be coming from Renee or you may be starting here. Don't forget to hop around to everyone's blogs to see the wonderful cards.

Here is our latest sketch:


Here is my interpretation:



One of my favourite items in the holiday catalogue is the Hearts Come Home Bundle. I have used the dies this time and think I will be using it a lot over the coming months. The Designer series Paper is Merry Little Christmas used with Old Olive Cardstock. I also used Old Olive 1/8" Sheer Ribbon.

Next on the hop is Maree. I always look forward to her creations.

Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 63

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


Here is our latest sketch:


Here is my creation:



I decided to use the Christmas Quilt Bundle. This bundle appeals to me as it can be used for Christmas and other times of the year. I have several friends who are quilters so this bundle will be used all year round for me.

The sentiment is from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set. I also put a gold faceted gem in the middle of the star.

Next on the hop is Maree. I always look forward to seeing what she has made.



Until next time!

Inkspired Blog Hop 62

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

Here is the sketch for this hop:


Here is my interpretation:



I have made this card for a staff member at work. She is a qualified art teacher and very creative. I love this stamp set (Crafting Forever) and its ability to be used for creative people who use different mediums. I coloured it using my Many Marvellous Markers. The washi tape is the Pick a Pattern wash tape.

Next on the hop is Maree. I love how she interprets the sketches.

Until next time!
