INKspired #134 Sketch Challenge

 


Hi everyone.
Welcome to this fortnight's INKspired Blog Hop!




Before me on the hop was Teresa Irwin, please hop back and check out her creation

This weeks challenge is based upon the Sketch Challenge below, designed by Teneale Williams:


How about you have a go with this Sketch Challenge?
I would love to see what you come up with!


My card is inspired by a wonderful friend that lost her battle this week, 
truly an Incredible Woman:



I started my card with a Purple Posy card base. My first layer was some Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper. This was  followed by a strip of Basic White and Seaside Spray cardstock embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.

A piece of Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon was attached, joining the Seaside Spray and Basic White Cardstock. The Hydrangeas were die cut with the Hydrangea Dies from the Hydrangea Hill Designer Paper Series. I used the Take Your Pick Tool to poke out the Leaves on the Hydrangeas. These were stuck to Seaside Spray and Purple Posy Cardstock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue, these Hydrangeas were also cut using the Hydrangea Dies. The leaves were stamped in Old Olive Ink with the Hydrangea Haven stamp set and cut using the Hydrangea Dies from Old Olive cardstock.
The Hydrangeas were attached with Stampin Dimensionals and the leaves were attached using glue dots.
The sentiment is from Hydrangea Haven and is stamped using Highland Heather and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder on a base of Gorgeous Grape cardstock and finished with Gorgeous Grape Pastel Pearls and a Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon bow.





The inside is layered with Gorgeous Grape Cardstock to carry on from the front of the card, then Basic White. The Sentiment has been stamped from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set. I have stamped it with Highland Heather and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The Hydrangea has been stamped from the Hydrangea Haven stamp set in Highland Heather and the background is stamped off also in Highland Heather. The Leaves are as the front of the card, Stamped in Old Olive Ink on Old Olive Cardstock and cut using the Hydrangea Dies.

INKspired #133 True Love Showcase

 

Hi everyone.
Welcome to this fortnight's INKspired Blog Hop!


Before me on the hop was Teresa Irwin, if you did not hop over from her blog, please make sure you check out her contribution, Always so lovely!

This weeks challenge is showcasing the True Love DSP from the Love you Always Suite which appears in the January - June 2021 Mini Catalogue from Stampin' Up!


This would have to be one of my favourite ever DSP from Stampin' Up!
It is very versatile whether you colour it or leave it plain.

Here's My Card:


I started my card with a Basic Black card base. My first layer was True Love DSP Series Paper. This was  followed by a rectangle cut from Rococo Rose Cardstock and a smaller rectangle cut from White cardstock.

The flowers used are fussy cut from the True Love DSP and are coloured with Old Olive light & dark Blender pens for the leaves and a Rococo Rose Marker Pen for the flowers.

The rectangles have been layered onto dimensionals and attached to the card front. The flowers are attached with multipurpose glue and dimensionals.

My sentiment is stamped in Momento Black ink and comes from the Forever and Always Stampset, Always is die cut from the Always dies using Rococo Rose cardstock and has been attached with multipurpose glue. The Forever and Always Suite compliments the Love You Always Suite, also from the same catalogue.

I have finished the card front with some Matte Black Dots from the Love You Always Suite.



The inside of my card is layered with Rococo Rose cardstock, followed by White cardstock, the flower, as the front flowers are, come from the True Love DSP. They are also coloured with a Rococo Rose Marker and Old Olive Blender Pens.

INKspired #129 Sketch Challenge

 

Hi everyone.
Welcome to the first INKspired Blog Hop for 2021!!




This weeks challenge is based upon the Sketch Challenge below, designed by Teneale Williams:


How about you have a go with this Sketch Challenge?
I would love to see what you come up with!


Here's My Card:



I started my card with a Misty Moonlight card base. My first layer was Magenta Madness which was embossed with the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder. This was  followed by a strip of Flowers for Every Season DSP and then another strip of the reverse side of the Flowers for Every Season DSP under this was a scalloped piece of Cinnamon Cider cardstock. I fussy cut 2 flowers from the same DSP and put them under a strip of Bumblebee cardstock stamped in Cinnamon Cider with "Hello" from Grace's Garden stamp set, these were popped up with mini dimensionals. The front was finished with 3 Gold metallic pearls and some gold metallic trim tied with a bow.   



The inside of my card has been done a little differently this time. 
The inside is layered with Magenta Madness, then Whisper White. I have used a strip of Flowers for every Season DSP as used on the card front and inserted a feature square of the same DSP layered with a square of Cinnamon Cider.
The sentiment is from Grace's Garden which has been stamped with Cinnamon Cider.
