INKspired Blog Hop 46

The INKspired team are here again with a blog hop!  
Before me on the hop is Marlene I'm sure she has created something wonderful!

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm busy building up my Christmas stash ready to post next week!
I love Christmas time and this year I want to be super organised and get my cards sent out on the 1st of December, but iv kinda run out of my Christmas mojo. I tried to make this a Christmas card but it just didn't work so its now just a HAPPY card hahah.

So lets have a look, but first here is the sketch

Here is what i came up with! I love this LOVE OF JARS stamp set and iv been playing around with it this week. I was inspired after the lovely Louise posted her INKspired card last hop. 

I played around and played around and I couldn't get this card to work for me so in the end stripped it back and now I'm really happy with it!

I used the FOXY FRIENDS paper stack DSP and placed vellum over the top. The "Happy" is in Island Indigo, a colour I don't use much but I just love it with the soft pinks of blushing bride, and pink pirouette and a hint of Mint Macaroon.  

I hope iv inspired you to get this stamp set out and have a play!

Next up is Narelle I cant what to see what amazing creations she has this week!
I'm sure they are lovely!

ESAD Holiday Favorite Product Blog Hop

Welcome to the ESAD blog hop if your already on the
 hop im sure you havent been disapionted yet.

I am SO in love with the current 2016 Stampin' Up! Holiday catty.
so when the girl at ESAD mention at Holiday Catalogue Blog Hop 
using your favorite products I jumped on board with bells on! 

My favorite Product of all in this catalogue is the Tin Of Tags Stamp set!!
Iv used this set over and over again and I never get sick of it, its so versatile with many 
of the words not being spercifically Christmas related so you can use it all year long.

So with this card I used Kraft cardstock for my base, Real Red embossed with the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured embossing folder. Im loving Mint Macaron so i put a little circle behind my sentiment to make it pop. The two adorable snow flakes are stamped in Craft white ink and yes I did cut them out by hand! (I secretly love fussy cutting!) 

So I kept with the same colour theme and created this cute little jar with chocolate sauce inside yum!!
This will defiantly spread some cheer!

also some cute little tags to pop on the gifts for my loved ones!
This set is so super versatile and I love that i can use it in so many ways!!
A must have for this Christmas!

A Very Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones!!!

Iv had so much fun hopping with these lovely girls from ESAD, so make sure you hop all the way around and see what amazing cretions the girls have made!


Next up is Nicole!

INKspired blog hop 45


You may have come from Marlene or you may be starting here. I love the simplicity of this sketch.


Here is the sketch that our team leader Teneale created for us.

My interpretation of this sketch uses the something for baby
 stamp set in pink pirouette and So Saffron,
 its so simple yet I love it! I love adding to my stash with a few quick cards!

I used Kraft card on the top of the card, and a few white sequins.

Enjoy the rest of the hop, next on the list is Narelle,
 I cant wait to see what amazing things she has created!

Thanks for stopping in!

INKspired Blog Hop 44

We are having a beautiful spring day here in the NSW high country. I'm a busy bee creating Christmas cards "trying" to be organised haha.

Before me is Marlene what will she create??

So i tried to play around with this weeks INKspired sketch, change things up a bit. 
Mainly because i don't have the oval dies (shock horror!!)

Below is the sketch 

I love the card I came up with!
this colour combo is definitely my Christmas colour combo for this Christmas!

it seems no matter how much i use this woderouse wreath stamp set i never get board with it! 
Gotta love stamp sets like that right!

I used the cable knit dynamic embossing folder to create the bottom of the card, love the texture!

A little bit of bling with some embossing powder and ribbon, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

Next up is Allison, lets hop on over and see what she has created!!

INKspired Bloh Hop 43

Iv had so much fun this week staying at home with my little man just being a mum!!!!
Its hard sometimes to just enjoy the little things in life as we all get carried away with this busy world. This week iv sat and done some sewing and some cooking but my most favorite thing to do is to sit and create cards. the card I'm showing you today is to prepare for the next few moths of first birthdays!! Scary to think a lot of the "new" babies will be turning 1 very soon!

I was supposed to be apart of the INKspired blog hop this week but due to technical issues i didn't make it! i thought tho id still share my creations!

Here is this weeks sketch, design by the lovely Teneale.

My card is featuring the foxy friends stamp set ( love love love this set!!)

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!

Next up is the lovely Maree click on the next button to hop on and see what she has created for us!

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
