This week on the Artisan blog hop the team is featuring the drop dead gorgeous stamp set Watercolor Wings.  The stamp set is a three step image, I have added the images in the stamp set, you can see the three layers of 2 size butterflies.

For this card I took inspiration from my favourite card in the Stampin’ Up! Catalogue which was on display at convention and this one card MADE we want this stamp set see the card I speak of HERE.

Inside the card is just as important as the front. I have stamped the greeting from Remarkable You and the flowers are from Garden in Bloom.

Can you believe that it has been a full year since I joined Artisan? Normally this would be our final hop together, however due to some changers coming to Stampin’ Up! the current team has been asked to stay around until November, all beside 2 are staying. Sadly we are losing my blog neighbour Vicky and the sweet little Lisa both the ladies were AMAZING and I adored their projects week in and week out. #MissingYouAlready

Hop over to Vicky to see her project and say goodbye.

By Teneale Williams | INKspired Blog Hop 21 #INK021 | Celebrate Today Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Welcome to the INKspired blog hop for this fabulous Sunday. This blog hop is made up for team members in my Stampin’ Up! Team, we come together to create a card inspired by a sketch I design, here is the sketch for this week:

INKspired Sketch 21

I feel like a little bit of a rebel this hop, I designed the sketch with a tag as the main panel but it was just not working on my card so it is just a plain old rectangle. Also you may notice on my card I do not have a banner across the “plain old rectangle” again it was just not working for me. #LackingStampingMojo

By Teneale Williams | INKspired Blog Hop 21 #INK021 | Celebrate Today Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

I blame leaving it to the last minute! I hate myself somethings, I work up at 6am this morning to create it knowing it was due at 10am. I spent almost an hour chatting online to my sweet friend Heather Summers in Canada which I LOVED but I was down an hour to create.

By Teneale Williams | INKspired Blog Hop 21 #INK021 | Celebrate Today Stamp Set from Stampin' Up!

Not only did I need to have this card due for the blog hop but I needed it for a first Birthday party today, for the cutest little miss in the world. My cousin Mel was hosting a 1st Birthday for her little girl today, on Facebook yesterday I noticed she photo of flowers she had bought to style the party, they look AMAZING. They were the inspiration to my colour selection.

Here is the inside card the card. I printed the greeting first on Whisper White cardstock then added the balloon and strip of DSP to follow this design on the front.

By Teneale Williams | Vintage Leaves and Butterfly Basics Stamp Sets from Stampin Up! | One layer card, stamp clear block to ink pad for block image, adding layers without the bulk.

Let the weekend begin. Thank Goodness It’s FRIDAY!  You know Friday brings a new challenge from TGIF  this round is a great challenge, to create a clean and simple card with a maximum of ONE layer.

11179967_10205560529625462_8326840696195805522_n

Being a girl who loves MORE, being limited to just one layer was a challenge but a challenge I enjoyed. I knew the stamp set I wanted to use, my amazing Mum and fellow stamper used Vintage Leaves a few weeks {see her card here} her card made me have a second look at that stamp set.

By Teneale Williams | Vintage Leaves and Butterfly Basics Stamp Sets from Stampin Up! | One layer card, stamp clear block to ink pad for block image, adding layers without the bulk.

To add a extra layer to the card without the bulk, I have inked up a clear stamping block onto a Crumb Cake ink pad then stamped it to the Very Vanilla cardstock, over that I have stamped the leaf image in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Note that with the leaf I have stamped it on a angle to counteract the left aligned greeting I was using, this Happy Birthday greeting is one of my favourite images, it is from Butterfly Basics.

I hope you have a wonderful week, I will be back Sunday with the INKspired blog hop. If you have time, please play along we us at TGIF if you don’t have a blog, you can use a social media account like Instagram or Pinterest to upload your card.

Teneale Williams Stampin' Up! Artisan Australian Gift Giving ideas 2015  Melting Moments

Gift Giving. Something I LOVE doing and I much prefer to give then receive, also I LOVE packaging my items, even if it is a baked good or sweet treat. I often will take a yummy treat when I am going to visits with friends or want to say thank you for something little. Are you like me?  If you are then you’re going to enjoy today’s blog hop as I join the Stampin’ Up! Artisan team, as our theme is gift packaging featuring the Tag-A-Bag Accessory Kit , Kraft Gift Bags, Sketched Tag a Bag  and Stamp a Bag Stamp Set.

I have packaged some Melting Moment Biscuits {click here for the recipe from Donna Hay}  #yummy

By Teneale Williams | Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop Gift Packaging | Homemade for You Stamp Set

Each package has 2 Melting Moment Biscuits in them, I have slipped the biscuits into one of the  Sketched Tag a Bag I love how these bags are frosted with a fun dot design. The bags are food safe. I was planning on 2 biscuits per bag but the original plan was they would sit side by side but I made these biscuits a little to big and they did not fit, I simply folded the sides of the bag over 2cm on each side and attached them to the back of the bag. Creating a long and thin bag and it looked fine at the back.

I have folded over a doilie from Tag-A-Bag Accessory Kit  and wrapped the topper with Linen Thread also from the Tag-A-Bag Accessory Kit , I have stamped “for you with love” from Homemade for You stamp set on Basic Black cardstock in VersaMark then White Embossed the image, to create the chalkboard look I then lightly sponged a little White Craft Ink over the embossing.

The flower was punched using the four petal punch from Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, the paper range it was cut from is English Garden DSP.

Again I have created the Chalkboard effect on this tag which is hanging off the basket, the goodies image is from  Stamp a Bag Stamp Set.

Thank Goodness It’s Friday. I do love when Fridays roll around, not just for it brings the weekend but it also brings a new TGIF challenge  I have sat out the past two weeks but I am BACK baby, I will admit I felt a little lost last week not playing in the past 2 challenges.

This week the challenge was HARD….. We need to select our  favourite new products from the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue or the newest items to hit your craft stash to create with.

tgifc12‬ July 17 2015 Inspiration Challenge

Well it was hard from me {blush} as I suffer from a horrible disorder called “Procrastinating Perfectionist” who also owns way to many stamps and pretty accessories to only select a few favourites. I hope you all feel very sorry for me :) And I have a feeling some of you reading this also suffer in the same way.  Goodness I started pulling out so many stamp sets, I had Cottage GreetingsEndless ThanksEvery Blessing, Floral WingsRemarkable YouVintage Leaves, Watercolor WingsWild about Flowers and You’re Got This all out to use. A card featuring all those stamps would be a hot mess. It took me 3 days to JUST decide on the main stamp set, once I got to the point a card had to be made so I went for a really technical process to decide, that being the timeless game of eenie, meenie, miney, mo and the winner was Floral Wings.

Once I got past the stamp set issue, the card came together quite easily. I am in LOVE with the Lots of Labels Framelits so they had to be used, the newest embossing folder I added to my collection was the Stylish Stripes, I can’t believe I had not brought that folder earlier as I do like a diagonal strip design.

I know it’s not new but my favourite technique is sewing on my cards so I HAD to add a little stitching. You can also see in the above image I have used one of my favourite new greeting sets  Cottage Greetings, stamped in Smokey Slate ink.

We would love to have you play along with us at TGIF this week because we all have new products that need to be used for the first time :) and old favourites that need to be showcased. Head over to the  TGIF challenge site to see the other design team creations and also the player gallery.
