Inkspired Blog Hop 44

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee who always inspires me to create more creative cards.

This is the sketch for this fortnight.

Here is how my card turned out.

I turned the sketch sideways for this card. I covered the front of the Real Red card with Candy Cane Lane DSP, however, I only attached it with a small amount of adhesive where I was going to cut. I then used the Layering Circles to cut the circle. I then cut some gold Baker's Twine the length of the hole. I then fully attached the DSP to cover the card base.

I love the Santa from the Cookie Cutter Bundle! It seemed perfect for the gap in my card. I stamped and punched him out and then coloured him with my Many Marvellous Markers. He is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals to the Baker's Twine.

I felt that the card needed a sentiment and thought that the "Ho Ho Ho" from Greetings From Santa stamp set.

Next on our hop is Marie who I had the pleasure to see in person yesterday!

Until next time!!

Inkspired Blog Hop 43

Hello everyone and welcome to another Inkspired Blog Hop! You have probably come from Marlene who always makes wonderful cards. I am looking forward to seeing what she has made. It is a hot day in Sydney and I am enjoying the warmer weather.

This is the card that Teneale has provided for this fortnight:

I knew immediately what I wanted to create when I saw this sketch.

I used Mint Macaron for my card base and then cut another piece of Mint Macaron for the card front. I embossed it using the Softly Falling Embossing folder. I cut a piece of patterned paper from the Pinecones and Presents DSP. I used the strip in the Banner Triple Punch. 
I stamped the mouse and sentiment from the Merry Mice stamp set onto Whisper White and coloured it using the Many Marvellous Markers.

I love making "Winter" Christmas cards - even though it is usually very hot at Christmas here.

Next on the hop is Maree, who always makes wonderful cards.

See you all again soon!
