By Teneale Williams | Stampin'Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Howl-o-ween Treat Birthday Card

This weeks Artisan blog hop is all about Howl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set and Boo to You Farmelits Dies.  A totally cute set but I thought I would mix it up by using this stamp set and the Happy Haunting DSP to create a birthday card, the skull and cross bones is kind of perfect for a funky birthday card for a little dude.

Here is the inside of my birthday card, I used a greet from No Bones about It. After I stamped the greeting I thought I should have used just the top line and found a different greeting that said something like its your day. But I guess I will need to look at my stamp collection for the next card because I know I will be making more of this card, my nieces are forever in need of birthday cards for little guys and they liked this design.

By Teneale Williams | Stampin'Up! Artisan Blog Hop | Market Fresh Stamp Set

Todays Artisan blog hop has a very fresh feeling, will it is featuring Market Fresh stamp set. I personally love this stamp set but it gets mixed reviews, I brought it thinking of my “foodie” friends. For me, I totally enjoyed sitting down to watercolour the images.

I stamped the image on watercolour paper, I started by colouring a halo of Crumb Cake around the image then coloured inside the image, I also coloured a second image so I cut out the image and layered to add a little depth.

The next Artisan is the  AMAZING little Allison Okamitsu  who is SURE to WOW.

By Teneale Williams | Watercolour card, Spring inspired | Stampin' Up! 2015

The second Sunday of each month part of my Stampin’ Up! team come together for a blog hop, we all use a sketch that I design as inspiration to create our cards. I just love seeing what the fellow INKspired Artist’s come up with, this is the sketch for this round.

Sketch designed by Teneale Williams for INKspired sketch 23

Here is the card I created using the sketch.  I was a little inspired by the warmer weather we had yesterday {Saturday} in Sydney, I could feel Spring coming and the chill of Winter is finally going. Behind the leaf image I have a very light water colour layer of Soft Sky but it was hard to get a good photo, I must say my card does look more impressive in real life, also I have added three clear sequins (inspired by the sketch) that also did not photograph that well. This card is going to a friend of mine and inside I will include how grateful I am for our friendship.

By Teneale Williams | Project Life By Stampin' Up! Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Collection #StampinUp #ProjectLife #PLxSU

Thank goodness it’s FRIDAY! That means 2 things the weekend is coming and it’s time for a new challenge for TGIF  this week the theme is school days. With many kids returning to school it will be a popular theme, for me being that I live in Australia our school year is a little different my nieces are in their 3 term with the school year Jan-Dec. I started looking back through photos I have taken on my iPhone when I have been at school with them.

TGIF Challenge 17 #TGIFc17 School Days

 

I am SO good at Project Life…. Well good at buying the card collections and not so good at the next step which is printing photo’s, don’t get me started on finishing pages. I have SO many half started pages that it was kind of embarrassing.  I am happy to present my FIRST ever completed page.

By Teneale Williams | Project Life By Stampin' Up! Seasonal Snapshot 2015 Collection #StampinUp #ProjectLife #PLxSU

This challenge made me finish a page and also print a stack of photos from my nieces at school that I plan to put into an album just about school. This one was from last year of my youngest niece doing her morning routine when she reached her class.

I came to terms with the fact that I am much better with the 6x8 inch pages then the 12 inch pocket pages being that I am mainly cardmaker I am less overwhelmed.

The Project Life collection I used is from the upcoming Holiday Catalogue, called Seasonal Snapshot 2015  it is a mix of themes school, Halloween, giving thanks and Christmas. I LOVE that a section of the designs are a kraft base with White printing.
