Inkspired Blog Hop 71

Good Evening and welcome to the 71st Blog Hop! You may be starting here or you may have come from Narelle. I can't wait to see what everyone has created.

Here is our sketch for the hop:

Here is my card:

I admit I had a bit of trouble with this sketch. I had many ideas but when I started to implement them, they just didn't work. I was on the phone to a friend today and she told me what I was doing wrong.

"You are overthinking it Ally, keep it simple."

And I realised she was right! So I put away the Designer Series Paper, embossing folders and powder, markers and embellishments. All I kept out was 1 stamp set, a couple of my favourite colours and matching cardstock and ribbon, and it worked!

The colours are Island Indigo, Berry Burst and Lemmon Lime Twist. The stamp set is Beautiful Peacock and the ribbon is Berry Burst Metallic-Edge Ribbon.

Next on the Hop is Maree. Don't forget to go around and see everyone's creations!

Until next time,

Inkspired Blog Hop 70

Good evening and welcome to the first Inkspired Blog Hop for the year! You may have come from Narelle or you may be starting here.

This is the sketch for this time:

and here is my interpretation:

I used the Naturally Eclectic Suite to complete this card. Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper was used as a background and also as the strip. The flower is from the Oh So Eclectic Stamp set, in Fresh Fig and the sentiment is from Beautiful You.

Next on the hop is Maree. Don't forget to hop around to everyone and see their fabulous creations.

Until next time,
