Welcome to the Artisan Blog Hop, the last for January. Many of the Artisan’s are together in Orlando at Stampin’ Up! Leadership Convention and I am beyond jealous that I am not with them but I will be stalking them on Instagram.

With Valentines day close approaching I thought I should create something heart/love related, I used You Plus Me Stamp Set with I also used here at the start of January, to my surprise I really like this stamp set as normal I am not a lover of Valentines Stamps but this years release of Valentines for Stampin’ Up! Are excellent and not over the lot.  I am a totally a typography geek! I get so excited over fonts {that is the designer in me} I just LOVED the style of “twitterpated” I HAD to use that stamp to create a funky little card.

I used Stacked with Love Designer DSP Paper Stack, have your realised Stampin’ Up! Are now creating smaller paper stacks, they are 11.4cm x 16.5cm. The perfect card maker size and I even have friends who love this size to create Project Life or Memory Keeping filler cards for the albums.   One of the designs in the stack is white with black printed  X and O’s, I really wanted to use this design as I am giving this card to my youngest niece and we always play tic, tac, toe on my iPad however it was a little too “white” I have taken my light Calypso Coral Blendabilitie to colour over the paper, as shown below.

I am going to create a project life page about our love of tic, tac, toe with these papers, I have so many photos over years of us playing so I thought I could share one of my little cutie thinking about her first move, she taken it very serious and I will admit I used to yet her win most of the time and help her pick a move however now I think she lets me win sometimes. LOL

Little Player

I challenge those who do not normally give Valentines card, to give a little note to some of the people you care about, I give me nieces card every year and normally a little something from Smiggle their favourite store but even without the gift, your card will be appreciated.

Now I am done! Thank you for spending a few moment of your day with my little corner of the web, now you can head off to the amazing Vicky who will wow you with her creative genius.

Teneale Williams | INKspired Sketch

Welcome to the INKspired blog hop, to catch you up…. The INKsired Artists is made up for demonstrators in my Stampin’ Up! Downline, I create a sketch and every second Sunday we link into each other sharing our ideas on using the same sketch.

This sketch is tricky, I said to the team all week “it does not have to be a star, it can be any shape. Balloon, heart, flower or even a off center stamped image” talk about easier said then done! I think I was the last to make my card and then the most vocal in the team that I hated the sketch…. I am also the one that created the sketch.

 By Teneale Williams | Artisan Blog Hop | Celebrate Today

So many reasons to celebrate on the fabulous Thursday, one being its Stampin’ Up! Artisan blog hop time. You may have just arrived from the SUPER talented Susan Wong or this is your first stop on the blog hop, we have 16 stops…. Always such amazing ideas.

Another reason for celebration is today is the birthday of a sweet little person I know, I love birthdays {just not my own} I always enjoy when I am creating cards with a special person in mind, in the case I know this card HAD to be pink!

By Teneale Williams | Artisan Blog Hop | Celebrate Today

Now that card just is all about celebrating! The stamp set is totally fun, its called Celebrate Today and it has so many options to stamp the balloon, even a hot air balloon. The base balloon image is stamped in Strawberry Slush with the confetti stamped in Rose Red.

Below is the inside shot, I have used Balloon Bash for the inside greeting…. I am obsessed and I mean obsessed with hashtags I think everyone that gets a birthday card from me will get this greeting inside their card just for the #yourwelcome at the bottom. #iLoveThatGreeting

 This week has gone SUPER fast and I can’t believe it is Artisan blog hop time again, A simple project this week and also super fast to create which is always good to have a quick project in the “back up plan”folder for that moment when you a quick card or in this case gift set.

As a cardmaker I love to give the gift of “giving” to my non crafty friends in the form of a stack of note cards for them to pay it forward to their family and friends, in most cases they have what I call open greetings or greetings for all occasions. I just adore the “Love Life” greeting I have used below from Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set A Happy Thing, you can use it for any event really!

Greetings bloggy friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend, I am having a busy weekend in my craft room preparing for a upcoming training event and I have SO enjoyed it! What better then crafty time.

This post is part of the INKspired Sketch blog hop, we took a break over Christmas so this is our first sketch of the year, we have a few INKspired Artists out this week on holidays however we still have 9 INKspiring stops all using this sketch below which I designed for the team.

I think is the first landscape sketch we have had and I am excited to see what the girls create with 4 boxs!  For the first time I did not have to think too hard on what I was going to create, I knew I was going with inchies layered with the Square Postage Punch.  I did change up the strip along the bottom of the card by stamping the boarder from Kinda Eclectic, and the greeting from Painted Petals is PERFECT for the card recipient.

The butterflies are all have a word across them, Dream, Love, Create and Inspire which I have taken from the butterfly image is from Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set.

The following images demonstrate how I have added the M to Dream and I to Inspire buy stamping the butterfly then re-inking then masking the part of the stamp that you do not require with a little Washi Tape

The you can see here how I have joined the image together to create the “dream” I will say I did have a few ties on scrap paper but on many.
