INKspired Sketch #INK017

The stamp set I am using is called “Too Kind” it is retiring, with wood only available {buy HERE} it is reduced from $34.95 to $26.23, I love a two stamp set and for this card I have used Pool Party stamped off first then the second layer at full strength. SO simple but really pretty.

The greeting is from “Another Thank You” a great set of 10 Photopolymer stamp set, I have grown to LOVE Photopolymer! Much too my surprise, I have gotten over the staining of the rubber from the ink as they are so easy to stamp.

With great sadness the Champagne Glimmer Paper is retiring, it was a fave tone in the glimmer range and I use it often as a fine trim on my cards like I have here, it is reduced 50% to $4.48 {buy HERE}

By Teneale Williams | Friendly Wishes Stamp Set | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

It’s Stampin’ Up! Artisan blog hop time again, they just seem to roll around so fast! During May the design team has been asked to share creations using products from the upcoming 2015/2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, today I have used a new stamp set called Friendly Wishes with the coordinating Everyday Chic DSP [Designer Series Paper]. The stamp set is in the “Chalkboard” section of the catalogue one of the many things I love is how they have added more stamp classifications/themes.

By Teneale Williams | Friendly Wishes Stamp Set | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

To achieve this chalkboard look I have white embossed the the greeting onto Basic Black cardstock then very lightly sponged a little craft Whisper White ink over the top.

The Everyday Chic DSP has 12 designs all black and white, I have added a little coloured using 2 of my Stampin’ Write Markers in Pool Party and Calypso Coral. I am SO in love with this paper and excited to play further with it.

Now this highlight of new product is leading into the next Artisan is Vicky  from the UK.

Friday has arrived! Bring on the weekend, I have planned a BIG weekend of stamping, stamping and more stamping!  I am two weeks out from getting my new craftroom fitted #beyondexcited which I started planning back in December and had no idea it would take so long to decide on everything, I have repairs also happening after that storm {read HERE} from a few ago also happening on the roof in my studio so this weekend I need to get three weeks of projects created from classes, Artisan and other Design Team commitments plus a I have an open house next week to create for! Goodness my top to list is long but I love what I do so that helps.

Today I am sharing a card I made for Thank Goodness it’s Friday Challenge #tgif03 this week our challenge is to create a Grad card, which for me was odd! And a real challenge to the point I needed the girls in the TGIF team to explain it to me. School/Collage is ending for the year in North America and more celebrated then in Australia, none the less I have embraced the challenge to create a card to say congrats on school achievements…

Challenge, Theme: Congrats Grad #TGIF03

Here is my creation for this week:

By Teneale Williams | Materials: Stampin' Up! "I Think You're Great" "Moments Like These" and "Fabulous Four" | TIGF Challenge- Congrats Grad theme #TIGF03

With very limited “graduation” theme stamps I have gotten creative with my supplies using the “Remember” Rotary stamp to add 2015 to the top corner, thinking class of 2015. I have used a very small section of a Project Life card from the upcoming “Moments Like These” range, which also inspired the colours used: Basic Black, Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder with pops of Silver.

By Teneale Williams | Materials: Stampin' Up! "I Think You're Great" "Moments Like These" and "Remember- Rotary"| TIGF Challenge- Congrats Grad theme I like what I came up with, “Way to Go! Amazing . Spectacular . Fantastic . You” Something I know I would use for other achievements and that is really what I had in mind when creating this card, in Australia the school year ends in December but I could totally give this card to one of my nieces for an award then achieved through the year  or even one of my fabulous team members.

The stars are stamped from “Moments Like These”  and the word bubble is from a new stamp coming called “I Think You’re Great” I have stamped the image in Watermelon Wonder ink onto Whisper White cardstock and hand cut it out. The bottom line is using part of an image from “Fabulous Four” stamped in White StazOn to Basic Black cardstock.

By Teneale Williams |Stamp Set: A Whole Lot of Lovely {Hostess}  Stampin'Up! Artisan Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Stampin’ Up! Artisan blog hop, I adore hearing from so many that they love Thursday’s to check out our blog hop because it gets them inspired to create, this month the Artisan are all featuring sneak peek products from the upcoming Stampin’ Up! Catalogue out June 2nd.

This week I am still obsessed with the new Incolors… well mainly Mint Macaron and Delightful Dijon who have invited Rose Red to the colour party. I really like this colour combo. The stamp set I have used is a upcoming hostess set, called “A Whole Lot of Lovely”  which is SO fitting for this stamp set, I also used this set {HERE}.

By Teneale Williams | A Whole Lot of Lovely, Stampin' Up!  Hostess Stamp Set 2015/2016 Catalogue

I have to start by sayingHappy Mother’s Day to all the mum’s reading this post, I hope you are having a wonderful day and received a handmade card because really that is one of best gifts.  The card I am showing today is the one my wonderful Mum is receiving, we have a big day planned starting with taking her out for breakfast, a movie, shopping {I hate shopping but she loves it} then a family dinner. I know she will just be happy to be spending time with her daughters and grandchildren.

The card is based on the below sketch for the INKspired Artist blog hop, I design the sketches and I still have trouble with them! I change things all around but you will see that shorty….

INKspired Sketch #INK016 | Blog Hop 10th May 2015

If you look at the sketch and then look at my card you can see a little difference:

  • I changed the shape- no rectangle here, I have used a circle and added a layer of vellum behind which I punch out using the 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle
  • I used a button as the circle element and moved it from the center to right of the card
  • The greeting over the circle has two V points, unlike the sketch.

Normally I would show the inside however I typed the message up and attached it before photography, I adore my Mum #BestMumEVER and therefore my message was very heartfelt so I am keeping it for just her. I have added a pic of the envelope, I have added DSP with a little of the stamped Mint Macaron cardstock. The heart and MUM letters are from a Project Life accessory pack, called “Love Story” they were white die cut letters so I coloured them with my Mint Macaron marker before attaching.

I have used a new stamp set from the upcoming 2015/2016 Stampin’ Up! Catalogue, it is a hostess set which means the only way to get this set is to host a workshop and earn it for FREE. I have included the cover of the set to show I used just this one stamp set, the background was created by stamping the flower on the left of the cover with the top flower from the stamp image on the right, using VersaMark the images were stamped then clear embossed.  Now I could have used just the bottom image as my Mum is a whole lot of lovely but I needed a layer across my circle for the challenge…. so I upgraded to FABULOUS.
