Welcome to a very small INKspired blog hop, there is only four of us playing along this week. If you are new to my blog let me explain the INKspired blog hop to you, we are made up of members of my Stampin’ Up! Team and we gather every second Sunday to share our cards that have all been inspired by a sketch I design, below is this weeks sketch.
My creative mojo seems to be missing, I joked with team members that because I am on a term break from University my mojo has decided to take a vacation to somewhere warmer. I normally use the time when I am not snowed under in study or assignments to stamp and enjoy my creative passion but I just can not get in the crafty groove.
All week I have been playing around (in my head) with different ideas for this sketch, which really should not be that hard but I just could not pull together anything I liked. My Sunday was spent making 4 different cards using this sketch, the time was running out and I went with the first card I made! I normally am I clean “crafter” everything has a home and it is used and returned to that spot; I think because I did not have a clear plan of what I was creating, I was just pulling thing out from all over the place to “try” and nothing was put away; my craft desk is a mess! I went to take a photo to share with you but I was too impressed to share a visual of the damage I created.
Lots of new products from the Stampin’ Up! 2017/2018 Catalogue, a new Incolor called Tranquil Tide, printed paper called Naturally Eclectic and Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies. This image below shows better the flowers, the top layer is die cut from vellum, the second layer is Shimmering Cardstock that I watercoloured with Tranquil Tide and under the die cut flowers is a watercolour wash of Pool Party ink.
Next stop on the blog hop is my friend Allison McLeod,
who will be enjoying a little term break herself very soon.
Stamping is always better with friends and I feel the same about sharing, I love when I can join some of my Stampin’ Up! Friends from around the world to share ideas. Today, join 8 demonstrators from the Stampin’ Up! global family for the Dream Theme blog hop. Each month we have a new theme, this time around it is Birthdays!
In the new Stampin’ Up! Catalogue they released a fabulous Thinlit die that cuts out ‘Happy Birthday’ and I love that it is nice and big at 8.3 x 7.6 cm. I have made it the star of the card, I have cut out found, the base layer was watercoloured in Crushed Curry and slightly offset.
I am totally into vellum at the moment, I love the softness it adds and it also gives a wonderful torn edge; which I enhanced by rolling the back of my thumb over the egde.
Next up on the blog hop is my special friend Patrice Halliday-Larsen

One of the stamp sets that I just adore is retiring, it is called Picture Perfect. I used the seashell from the set a few weeks ago see HERE and today I am showing the beautiful rose that is three images that layer to add dimension.

Welcome to the INKspired blog hop for round 57, if you are new to our blog hop: This is the low down, we have 6 blog for you to stop by to check out our cards all inspired by the below sketch that I have designed for the team. I love seeing how we all take the sketch and our different styles.
If you arrived from Barbara’s (I call her Mum) blog you will know that lucky duck is on a five-week vacation to the Mediterranean, she is hugely missed by our little family. The stamp set I have used is being retired come 1st June (or sold out first) and it is called “Traveler”. It was a fitting set to use for a card for Mum and wish her well.
I have used the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper, on the backing dot paper it is vanilla and I changed the colour of the paper by sponging Pool Party ink over the surface, it has not shown up that well in the photo but I was super impressed with myself and let me tell you I rarely say that. Can you spot a new In-color? I have a used Tranquil Tide for the middle banner and watercoloured on the global. #Love
Here is a peek to the inside of my card, normally I show before the message has been added, however, I had a lot to say on this card so I typed it before embellishing.
Thank you for stopping by.
Next stop is the sweetheart Nicole Anderson
