INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 39 -


Hi and welcome to our INKspired hop.
You may have joined from Allison and I can't wait to see her
 card this hop

Here is the sketch that Teneale has given us this fortnight....


 I used the Grateful Bunch stampset for the saying
and the flower on the background.

Then used Peekaboo Peach cardstock and ink for the 
card. Teamed it with Swirly Scribbles shape cut in 
Sweet Sugarplum cardstock for a contrast.

I cut a piece of Peekaboo Peach cardstock and threaded it thru the Swirly Scribbles cut out shape.
Finished off with the Peekaboo Peach Enamel Shapes at each end.

Thank you for stopping by

Now it is onto Louise to see what wonderful 
pink creation is waiting for us


Bye

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 38 -

Hello and welcome to our sunday night blog hop.
You may have hopped across from
the delightful Allison.Can't wait to see what she has made this
fortnight.
Grab a cuppa or something stronger, sit awhile and enjoy the hop with us.
Now here is the sketch that Teneale has given us this fortnight

Used the gorgeous Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and 
made a shaker card.
 Brights Sequin Assortment went inside and the wonderful Foam Adhesive strips kept them inside. 
Used the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to create the opening and also cut a small swirl for the edge.
Love the new Very Vanilla Lace trim that went across the card.

Used the Happiest of Birthdays to You stamp from the
 Birthday Blooms stampset.
I wasn't happy that you would see the words inside the shaker 
so stamped them again
but still undecided on whether
that worked...


Thank you for stopping bye
Now it is onto Barbara
to see what gorgeous card she has made this fortnight......

WWYS Challenge #75 - Foxy Friends


Am loving the Foxy Friends stampset and punch - a great bundle to have.
When I saw that this week it was the featured stamp set 
on What Will You Stamp
I had to enter

I wanted to make a card that showed that foxes play hide n seek as well.
Started with base card of crumbcake.
Added a layer of crumbcake to that.
Stamped three stumps in Early Espresso ink and cut them out. Stamped the foxes in Cajun Craze and punched them out. Love having a punch for that - makes it so easy!
Stamped some leaves behind the stumps in Old Olive ink.
The words For You are from the Stampset - Birthday Blooms.
Then added some mushrooms that were supposed to be in Chocolate Chip but picked up the wrong ink!!
Thank you for stopping by

Don't forget to pop over and see the cards that have been made
at What Will You Stamp with Foxy Friends.

Bye for now

Inkspired Sketch Blog Hop 37



Thank you for joining us on this hop
You may have come across from the lovely Allison 
and I can't wait to see what she has made for us today
Grab a cuppa or a glass of your favourite 
and take the time to hop around  
Now here is the sketch that Teneale 
has given us
I wanted to do a male card and used the
Lucky Stars Embossing Folder 
(sounds like it goes with the cowboy boots)
on Real Red cardstock.

Wanted a different shape for the boots to be attached to - can you guess
which framelit set it came from?

That's correct from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits!
So versatile.....
The boots are from Country Livin' stampset
The Happy Birthday is from the Number of Years stampset.

Hope you enjoyed my card today

Thank you for taking the time to visit
Now it is onto 
and I am wondering if it will be pink.....


Bye for now

Love and Affection - PCCCS201


Well it has been a miserable day today
cloudy and cold - rain is on the way again.
Am making birthday cards at the moment -
July is a busy month with cards I have to send.
Saw this card sketch from the Paper Craft Crew
and thought I would use it for one of my cards

Well I started with Melon Mambo as the base
Very Vanilla  cardstock and a lovely saying from Love and Affection
stampset
Then used the beautiful Flourish Thinlits dies with
Blushing Bride cardstock
but the flower stem was too long so snipped the bottom off.


Hop on over and see all the lovely cards that everyone has made
at PCCCS201

 Hope you enjoyed my card

CYCI#124 Water Color Sketch Challenge - Birthday Blooms


Hello and welcome to my blog.
I have been watercolouring and noticed that
Can You Case It - CYCI#124 had a watercolur challenge that my card 
would go nicely with


 
I started witha piece of Shimmery white cardstock that I added a wash of three of the new In Colors -  Peekaboo Peach from the bottom then Flirty Flamingo in the middle and then at the top Sweet Suagarplum - let that dry.
I then sponged around the edge of the shimmery white piece.

I added a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock to it and then I attached it to Whisper White cardstock as the main card.

I used the beautiful Birthday Blooms which I stamped onto the Shimmery White cardstock with Basic Black Archival ink
and then watercoloured the flower in 
AND then fussy cut it out which took a long time!


I then attached the flower directly to the shimmery white
and added some touches of clear Wink of Stella to the flower.
Stamped "for YOU" on the bottom right hand side.

Thank you for stopping by.
Do go to the link above and see all the lovely cards that everyone has 
made for this challenge

Bye for now
