It is very rare when I post two days in a row! I am back to share a card I made for Global Design Projects sketch challenge. I designed the sketch and took a little creative licence with the layout on my card as you will see when you scroll down a little more.
Let us play spot the difference! Yes, you got it I left off the strips along the top; in my defence, I have added a fabulous big bow around the banner layer. I am a LOVER of ribbon and bows but I have not really been using them on my cards for a few years, but I am feeling a return. This bow was inspired by Lissa Carter, yesterday we had a team blog hop and I was taken with the bow she added to her card (see here) and I even went to bed think about her bow…. crazy I know, dreaming of cards but that is me. Anyway I woke this morning and straight to the craftroom to create something for this challenge with a BIG BOW.
I am in full on Christmas cardmaking mode, all my classes are Christmas cards besides one each month and my ladies love it. If you are in Western Sydney, I am having a social cardmaking session with weekend with Barbara Williams (AKA mum) you will make 3 cards for $10.
Welcome the to INKspired blog hop round 41 if you have arrived from Barbara Williams (AKA my mum) then you are already on the blog hop. If this is your first stop, allow me to catch you up; we have six stop on this blog hop all using the same sketch as inspiration to create our cards. See below the sketch we are using:
The photo is horrible! My apologies, the sun was hiding behind all the rain clouds and therefore the lighting was less than ideal. I have a terrible habit of buying LOTS of printed paper and not using it because it is “too pretty” to use! I have spoken about this problem in the past, I think I have overcome the issue but then fall into old habits! I am doing pretty good at the moment using Presents and Pine printed paper from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalogue, I am LOVING the holly design. Noel was fussy cut from Christmas Pines Stamp set and the little Christmas tree is from the Project Life By Stampin’ Up! Hello December 2016 accessory pack.
The next stop on the blog hop is with super sweet Lissa Carter

I jumped for joy at all the pretty Holly images in the Holiday Catalogue, when I saw Holly Berry Happiness I had a vision of this card pop in my head; a vintage inspired card with a border of watercoloured Holly leaves.

Greetings! Can you believe it is September already, Christmas will be here is no time! I hope you are thinking about my Christmas cards or even better if you have started. Last weekend, I had my launch party for the new Holiday Catalogue from Stampin’ Up! and I loved seeing the attendees getting excited about the new stamps. See the new catalogue here.
The card I am showing today uses the stamp set that made many of my ladies go weak in the knees (their words) it is called Father Christmas it is a vintage Santa stamp set and SO lovely, I created my card for the current Global Design Project challenge of CASE the designer, who is me this time round.
It is pretty clear where the inspiration came from? Just in case you can not tell, the sketch! This was a sketch we used for INKspired blog hop and is a sketch I have used many times, you could say a never fail sketch when mojo is missing. How sweet is this Christmas image.
