INKspired #130 Challenge


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

Before me on the hop was Sharon Arklay. I can't wait to see what she has for us this time.

For this Blog Hop we are using products from the current Stampin Up! promotion, everyone's favourite,
Sale-a-bration, which runs from the 5th January 2021 until 28th February 2021. 

The items I have used today will be FREEBIES with each $90 (in Australia) you spend on other beautiful Stampin Up! products.

If you would like to shop with me, please click my Shop Online button and you will be directed straight to the Stampin Up! store.

Make sure you hop all the way around to check out the wonderful and talented creations everyone has contributed this time round!

If you haven't got your Sale A Bration product yet, it's time to shop,
I would love to see what you come up with!

Due to the weather being unfriendly outside, it left me a little more time to play inside. 

Here's My Cards:

This is from  A Touch Of Ink, Stamped on Vellum with Staz On Ink, Coloured with Blends and Markers and layered with Whisper White and Black Cardstock on a Whisper White Cardbase. Finished with Pearl Basic Jewels. The Sentiment, from the same stamp set, is Heat Embossed with White on a Scalloped Black Circle, popped up with Dimensionals. (Inspiration from Tina Wardell)

These cards are made using A Touch Of Ink, The bird has been stamped with Momento Ink and coloured using Stampin Up blends and then fussy cut. The Sentiment also from this stamp set has been Heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. The paper is another FREEBIE available, Oh So Ombre DSP, it is just beautiful, both sides and each and every piece. The top left hand corners have been curled using a bone folder and rolled over and attached with a dimensional. All cards have been layered onto a Thick Whisper White Cardbase. The sentiment strip is layered on dimensionals, the bird is attached with multipurpose glue and finished with Pearl Basic Jewels.
Colours from Left to Right are Bermuda Bay/Granny Apple Green, Rococo Rose/Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green/Blackberry Bliss.
(Inspiration from Alisa Tilsner)

My last card also uses A Touch Of Ink and the Oh So Ombre DSP. Three Strips of DSP have been cut, the same size and layered on a Blackberry Bliss cardbase leaving a small space between. 2 scalloped circles have been cut using Blackberry Bliss and 2 Circles from Whisper White which have been stamped using Blackberry Bliss Ink. My Sentiment this time is from Good Morning Magnolia as I felt the Thinking of you in this stamp set was just not quite large enough. (Inspiration from Carol Payne)

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. 

Thank you for stopping by, next up is Teresa Irwin,
Looking forward to seeing what Teresa has created this time round
I hope you gain some inspiration from our hop
Please hop around everyone's creation and see what they have come up with.

Have a Wonderful Day, KATRINA xx
