I managed to use all the colours, Here's my card:



I started my card with a Basic White card base. For my first layer, I have used bermuda bay cardstock which I have embossed with one of the greenery embossing folders. 
This was  followed by a layer of basic grey which I cut using the Scalloped Contour dies, I also used the scoring blade on my cutter and ran a score across each scallop, I attached this to the card front with dimensionals.
 I used the penned flowers dies to cut 2 flower images from basic grey cardstock, these were adhered using multipurpose glue.
I stamped my floral image from the hand-penned petals set, in basic grey ink on basic white cardstock. I have coloured the flowers and leaves using stamps from the same set in Flirty Flamingo, Mango Melody and Old Olive Ink. This is die cut using the penned flowers dies and attached using dimensionals.
My sentiment comes from the hand-penned stamp set, has been stamped with white craft ink on a strip of bermuda bay card. 
I have finished the card by adding 3 silver metallic pearls.



The inside is layered with basic white cardstock, die cut at each end using the scallop die from penned flowers dies. I have stamped each end with a speckled stamp from the hand-penned petals in mango melody.
My image and sentiment are both from the hand-penned petals stamp set and using flirty flamingo and old olive I have coloured the leaves and flowers.
I have finished the inside by splattering some bermuda bay ink and attached it using multipurpose adhesive.

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

My card began with a Misty Moonlight card base. My first layer a piece of Whimsy & Wonder DSP.
I have then cut a strip of Misty Moonlight and used the Gingham Embossing Folder from the upcoming Mini Catalogue January to June 2022, this was cut at the bottom to give the shape required from the sketch with my paper snips.
I then die cut a circle from Basic White using the layering circle dies.
My stamped image is from the Whimsical Trees stampset in Misty Moonlight and has some Silver metallic Pearls added. The circle has been stood up on dimensionals.
My sentiment is also from the Whimsical Trees Stampset which I have embossed using Silver Embossing Powder.

INKspired #146 Sketch Challenge

Hi everyone.
Welcome to this fortnight's INKspired Blog Hop!
Life's events had forced me to take a short break but I am glad to be back and cannot wait to see what our talented team have for us this time round. 
I hope everyone is safe and well.


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

This week 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!


I started my card with a Cinnamon Cider card base. My first layer was Basic White which I embossed using the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing folder that I added some Cinnamon Cider Ink to. 
My stamp set of choice for this week is Feels Like Home from our SALE-a-bration catalogue which ends on the 30th September, not long now to get your freebies, just spend $90 and you get this set free! 



My image has been stamped with Cinnamon Cider Ink, I have highlighted parts of the bike with a Dark Soft Succulent Stampin Blend. My leaves on the plants and tree have been sporadically coloured using both the Dark and Light Soft Succulent Blends. I have cut the image out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies. This has been adhered to a piece of Soft Succulent Cardstock which I have roughed up the edges using my paper Snips. I have used a length of Soft Succulent Open Weave Ribbon around the bottom of the image another piece has been tied to it by just using a knot, it has been adhered to the back of the card using glue dots. I have mounted the image to the card base using Stampin Dimensionals.


My sentiment comes from the Pansy Patch stamp set which is in our annual catalogue, a personal favourite of mine.
My sentiment Happy Birthday, has been stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink on Soft Succulent Cardstock and has been die cut out using the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
It has been adhered to the card using Stampin Dimensionals and Glue dots.


My finishing touches to the card front were 3 basic pearl Jewels which I coloured using Soft Succulent Blends.


The inside is layered with Soft Succulent Cardstock, followed by Basic White. My sentiment comes from the Pansy Patch stamp set and has been stamped in Cinnamon Cider ink. My flower pot also stamped in Cinnamon Cider is from the Feels Like Home stamp set, this has touches of colour with a Soft Succulent Blend.
