INKspired Blog Hop 42

Well it has been an absolutely stunning day here in the high country, the sun is here and spring is defiantly in full swing. 

I'm feeling extremely grateful of all the wonderful people around me that make my world so special, so iv decided to send out some cards to show my gratitude. Most of these cards are LONG over due but better late then never.  

So being apart of the INKspired blog hop this week before me is my lovely friend Barb I'm sure she has wowed you with her creations and there is more to come!

Below is the sketch that is inspiring us this hop!

So with giving on my mind, I sat at my craft desk (in the 2 seconds of screaming baby free time I had) and came up this this cute card.
 I wanted to try and keep it simple as I didn't have a lot of time and I had a few cards to make. (plus I always over complicate things)

I looked at the Floral Boutique DSP that I have opened but not yet used and thought I must use this.
So as you can see iv used it on the bottom half of the card, and added a little border of Rose Red to make it pop.

As for this beautiful flower that I LOVE!! I stamped it with VersaMark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder on to Rose Red card and cut it out with the coordinating Framelits called May Flowers Framelits. 

This is the inside of the cards clean and simple!

A hint of Copper Thread for a little bling finished it off nicely.

These cards will hopefully show my appreciation to those special few around me who are helping me "keep afloat". I think is so nice to show this in simple little unsuspecting ways.

I hope you have a great week and have a little time so spread some love around in little ways!

INKspired Blog Hop 40

Hello, Im here with another INKspired blog hop. Before me on this blog hop is Lisa I'm sure she has created something beautiful.

YAY its spring here in Australia and I'm super excited!

This is the sketch we worked with this week.

So iv got flowers on my mind and iv been asked to create a 18th birthday card for a lovely young lady and here is what i came up with.

I used the number of years stamp set to create the back ground in Mint Macaron,
 Melon Mambo and So Safron.
I just love how versatile this stamp set can be. 
I cut the 18 using the Large numbers framelits these make it so easy. 

Thanks for stopping by next up is Allison

ESAD blog hop

Well today were hopping with the ESAD girls and its such a pleasure to be hopping with them.
 Today we are featuring our beautiful new Occasions Christmas catty.

If you get lost at any stage during this hop you can see the full line up at the bottom of this post.

 I'm just in love with this beautiful Star of light bundle.
I have to admit this is my first time playing with
 my new stamps and I'm so excited.

My colour combo is Craft, Mint Maccoron and Real Red with a hint of White.
These beautiful stars are cut out using the Starlight thinlits dies and the sentiment is embossed using white embossing powder to make it pop off the page.

 I love this new Candy Cane lane bakers twine with just a hint of bling and the
 mini jingle bells are just so super cute.

Thank you so much for stopping in.
Have fun hopping around, hit the next button to continue all the way around.

INKspired Blog Hop 39

INKspired Blog Hop 39 

A cold and wintry hello to you from the snowy mountains of Australia,
 its and exciting time of year here as the cold wind still blows 
around I can see hints of spring popping its bright cheery face through. 

As i am a horticulturist i LOVE spring and I get a little excited when the
 snow drops and the first few daffodils pop up.

Before me on this hop is Lissa I am sure Lissa has created a 
beautiful card for us to get inspiration  from.

First up here is the sketch we are playing with thanks to Teneale.


I LOVE this sketch!!

So to celebrate the coming of spring iv created a beautiful floral card this hop!
In hope that the winter cold will pack up and the spring will shine through.

I used the Helping Me Grow stamp set which I am in LOVE with! 
I used  three of my favorite colours Crumb Cake, Rose Red and Copper with a hint of Old Olive.

I added a few drops of copper using the textured impressions stamp set and copper embossing powder, I just love that extra pop of bling and the extra texture.

I used the aqua painter to colour in the flowers and to add the shading on the flowers
 and also on the back ground.

Thanks for stopping by

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 37

Hi there!!! welcome, well we are back after a long brake and
 ready to hop with some of the lovely INKspired girl.
 Before me is the lovely Lisa click HERE to go backwards and check out her blog.

Here is the sketch from Teneale, (i love this one)

I realised after I blogged this card that the sketch was a square card 
but it was too late to change my card, woooops!

A cute little baby boy card.
I wasn't the biggest fan of this little bear when I won it at our Stampin' Up event On stage in Sydney, but after a little play iv really begun to like this stamp.

Next up is Allison on her first Inkspired Hop, make her welcome by leaving a comment.

A gift of Diamonds

Envelope Punch Board Diamond Box

This month iv decided to reward my order placing customers with this cute little diamond box.
I first found this beautiful diamond box on the Stampin' Up blog (see it HERE.)

It was created by the amazing Jessica Winter, she is apart of the Artesian Design team for Stampin' Up! check out her blog HERE I'd highly recommend it she is  so inspirational!

This box uses the Giftbag punch board (so clever)!! Here is Jessica's template,
why change something that has already been beautifully designed!

I just love love love this box!

 I cut some Crumbcake card at 21.5cm x 8.3cm I then scored it with my trimmer at 2 cm along the longer side I then placed it into the gift bag punch board with the left hand side on the starting line with the scored line facing down. I then punched and scored the triangle, triangle bottom and the top horizontal. Mark the side line on the bottom only with a pencil this you will line up with the start line so you can score your next triangle. 

I then cut the lid out of some designer series paper 9.2cm x 9.2cm and scored at 2cm around each edge I then snipped each corner as above.

Now for the lucky ladies who have purchased goodies from me this month I have done this for them, all they need to put them together! first you need to fold along the score lines it can be a bit tricky with the diamond shape and then you can use glue or tape I used fast fuse to stick it all together. some down the side and then glue each tab for the bottom of the box. I also included some bits and bobs to decorate the top. I hope you enjoy girls!

If you wish to receive one of these place an order with me before the end of July.

Email me at

Thanks to Jess for the inspiration!
Have fun creating this cute box.
