Very excited times, the INKspired blog hop is BACK after a very long break…. which was kind of my
idea fault but they are here to stay. To catch you up on what the blog hop is all about, a group of my Stampin’ Up! Team coming together to share our cards based on a sketch I design for the team. We have a few members leave and we have Allison joining us from her first blog post ever!
Here is the sketch, we are working with:
It was a square card but it did not quite work for my idea. I wanted to use the Weather Together bundle I just adore the cute little Umbrella! I had no one in mind for this card I just really wanted to play with it. The thing is; sometimes, it is so much easier to create when you have someone in mind, I took forever to make this card as I could not make up my mind…. Also, I had a project for university staring at me and ….. deep down I knew I should have been working on that and not making a card!
Add interest to the umbrella by attaching two together with Tombow multi glue along the circumference. Shadow can be added to the inside umbrella image by lightly shading with a lead pencil.

Hello, my inky friends. Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the internet. Today I bring to you a Global Design Project card and posted on time this week. The challenge is a colour combo of Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Smoky Slate but I swapped out the Smoky Slate and went with Sliver.
I went totally simple with this card. I am creating much more simple cards of late. Some of you may know that last year I decided to go back to study, I am pretty much the oldest person in most of my classes and even worst, I think I am a little older (by a year or two) than one of my lecturers. I am studying a Bachelor of Communication Design, it has been great “re-learning” or should I say remembering principles of design. Less is more; My current motto, I forgot about that one for a while.

I have used Touches of Texture stamp set for this blog hop, paired with Printed Paper and Washi Tape from the Moroccan product suite.
Here is my card, it has a vintage feel. I just adore Mint Macaron and I have paired it with Delightful Dijion.

Again, I am kind of late with my card for Global Design Project! All the other (good) Design Team Members had their cards posted on Monday when the challenge went live. My card was made, I created it weeks ago and my ladies had all made it in class however I had not taken a photo. I was holding out for better lighting as I shoot with natural light and before I knew it the challenge arrived. As the old saying goes, better late than never.
The challenge is to case a card from fellow Design Team Member Steffi, who is a SUPERSTAR in the stamping world. I ADORE her clean style and that you can tell she designed the card straight away. See her card below and click here to head over to Global Design Project.
I was taken straight away by the little details, behind the gold butterfly is a small vellum butterfly, that is carried into my card with the flowers. Also noting the leaves that Steffi stamped on an angle, that became the core element in my card.
