INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 4 -

Welcome everyone to my blog, you may have just hopped across from the lovely Marlene Goulder and you will have seen some beautiful cards that you can make as well on this and every hop. It is amazing how we all have such different styles.

Teneale has given us an interesting sketch this time as you can see below

I struggled at first on what I wanted to do with this sketch, I decided to simplify what I did and not overthink it (lol). After driving back from Sydney (5 hours later) and going from sweltering heat to freezing cold and needing to find warm clothes, the KISS principle looked good!!
Grabbed a pot of tea, (a Krispy Kreme doughnut fell out of the box I had bought for hubbie - a girl has to have a sugar hit when she is creating, right?) and came up with this.

Main card is Hello Honey, added whisper white and daffodil delight together  and then embossed with the Fancy Fan after I had stamped with crumbcake. Gorgeous Grunge splatter along the bottom and top of card. Linen thread tied into a bow thru a Regals button.

Thank you for coming and sharing in our Blog hop and we all love if you would share a few words with us in the comments section below.

Next hop is onto the talented Narelle Macey:

  1. Simple but effective - love the embossed look of the yellow and white, an embossing folder that I am still yet to order :)

    1. Simple is what I had to do at nearly midnight, thank you.

  2. Love hello honey, makes me think of Bonnie.. Your done a great job with your card.

    Wouldn't have minded the donut, Dave wouldn't have missed it you know.

  3. Lovely "colour blocking" Maree; this is really striking! I don't think I've paired Daffodil Delight with Hello Honey - it looks great.

  4. Ahhh - Maree, all I feel like now is a Krisy Kreme donut!
    Love the effect of running the colour blocked parts through the embossing folder together. Great colour combo and hope you enjoyed that donut! Lou xo

  5. Lovely card Maree, such warm colours. Glad you enjoyed the crispy creme.

  6. Maree, love the colour combo! I see a touch of country & lovely warming colours. Glad you enjoyed your Krisy Kreme... Yummy! xx

  7. I love this stamp set you have definitely talked me into getting it. The embossing does give it a great lift. Great card Maree

  8. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments, I did enjoy the donut...

  9. I love how you have embossed over the stamped images, it adds great texture. I had a great time with you and Vic
