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.

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!

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!

Inkspired Blog Hop 61

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have some from Renee or you may be starting here. Make sure you hop around to all the blogs and see all the amazing creations.

Here is the latest sketch:


Last fortnight Teneale made a comment about how she was freaked out with people preparing for Christmas. I am continuing this tonight as I think it is never too early for Christmas!



I have used the Be Merry Designer Series Paper and the new stamp set Carols of Christmas. I stamped and cut out the poinsettia and leaves instead of the bow. The ribbon is Stitched Satin Ribbon. I love clean and simple Christmas cards!

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


Until next time

Inkspired Blog Hop 60

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 hop around to all the different blogs and see all the wonderful creations.

Here is this week's sketch:


I decided to do something a little bit different this week. While my design would have worked on a card I decided to create a bag instead.



I used the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the bag using the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper. I then inked Whisper White cardstock with Fresh Fig. The stars are cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper using the Starlight Thinlits. I used them as a border as I don't have a current border punch. The ribbon is Gold 1/8" Ribbon.

Next on the hop is Maree. I always love looking at her cards.



Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 59

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Teneale or you might be starting with me. Don't forget to hop around to all the wonderful cards!


Here is our latest sketch:


Can I just say that I love this sketch?? I wanted to do a few different cards because I just had so many ideas. Unfortunately I ran out of time and only got one made. I might be able to make one of them and put it up next week.



This card is for my dad's birthday tomorrow. When I saw the This Little Piggy stamp set it became top of my wish list. I stamped the pigs onto Powder Pink cardstock in Chocolate Chip and fussy cut them out. The card base is Tranquil Tide and the Designer Series Paper is Wood Textures.

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



Until next time!

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

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!

Inkspired Blog Hop 51

Good evening everyone and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee. I can't wait to see what she has come up with this fortnight!

This is our latest inspiration from Teneale:




and here is my interpretation:



I decided to create my own background for this card. I used Crumb Cake Cardstock and used Island Indigo with the stamp set Paisleys and Posies. I used a strip of Sweet Sugarplum and then stamped one of the designs on Crumb Cake. I used the Paisley Framelits to cut them out.

 The sentiment is using the Balloon Adventures. I fussy cut out the frame.

Next on the hop is Maree who always makes amazing cards! Don't forget to hop around and see the other cards!

Until next time!

Inkspired Blog Hop 50



Hi everyone and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may have come from Renee. I always love seeing the inspirational cards that the other ladies create, don't forget to hop around to everyone.

This is the sketch for this fortnight:

Here is my interpretation:



I decided to use the new Designer Series Paper Falling in Love from the Occasions catalogue. I made the card base with Blushing Bride and covered it with the paper. I then used some Sahara Sand to create a mat. I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla and used the de-bossed side. The de-bossed side created something a little bit different.


I used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to create a flower like shape using Blushing Bride. The sentiment is using Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used the Balloon Adventures stamp set and fussy cut the banner before attaching it to the card. 

That's all from me this week! Next is Maree who always makes wonderful cards.


Until next time!!
