INKspired Sketch Blog hop 97 -

Hi everyone and thanks for joining us for another sunday night INKspired blog hop. You may have hopped across from Narelle  Macey and I can't wait to see what she has done using the  lovely Bird Ballad suite.
Every fortnight Teneale gives us a sketch that we all use and I have found this sketch a bit hard to use.....
I have been using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley - 150059 and loving it. It is $139.00 and has a lot in it- click here to see it all.


Used the Everything is Rosy stampset and the thinlits dies. 

Started with Night of Navy and embossed the piece on top with the Climbing Vine textured Impressions embossing folder - will be sad to see this go

Used retiring inks that I love - Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves and Berry Burst for the flowers.


The words have come from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stampset.




Thanks for stopping by 


Now it is onto Allison McLeod and I can't wait to see what she has made


Until next time
Happy stamping

INKspired Sketch Blog hop 96 -


Thank you for joining us on this sunday night for the INKspired sketch blog hop. You may have jumped across from the lovely Narelle Macey and I can't wait to see what she has made.
Teneale has given us this great sketch below to work with this fortnight.
No photo description available.
Well of course I had to go with one of the new stampsets that I got at Onstage Live in Auckland. On the friday and saturday we made cards using new product and I was lucky to get out of the box  on the friday  this stampset below  called Sailing Home. I then ordered the matching dies to  go with it.
I started with crumbcake as my main cardstock teamed it with Night of Navy and Whisper White.
Inked the lighthouse in Night of Navy and then cut it out with the new amazing dies called Smooth Sailing Dies - so easy to use.
Love the rope and the anchor and the word thanks completed it. I cut two lighthouses out and popped the second one up.

Had to do the inside of the card with a Night of Navy lighthouse and some birds flying overhead. You will be able to order these new stamps and dies when the Annual Catalogue goes live in June.





Thank you for stopping by and now it is onto Allison McLeod


Until next time

ESAD April 2019 So Long Favourites blog hop -

No photo description available.

Thank you for joining us tonight as we say farewell to our old favourites. You may have hopped across from Rebekah Crisp and I can't wait to see what she has made.
For a detailed understanding of ESAD just hop below to read but basically it is an Australian and New Zealand facebook page for Stampin' Up! demonstrators who love and share stamps,ink & paper creations. 
If you get lost there is a list of who is hopping at the end so click on the list to find your way. 
Wow I have so many favourites that I took a long time to decide but here is just a couple that I love....
 Went with the beautiful Petal Palette that has dies as well..



This card is using Calypso Coral and the retiring  Garden Trellis textured embossing folder. I have also used a piece of retired ribbon from the Sale-a-Bration time (these ribbons were so popular - they sold out) and of course lemon lime twist for the leaves.

and the dies are called Petals & More Thinlits Dies
This card below is  using the Press n' Seal or is called as well the Floating technique as popped up on dimensionals. I sometimes leave more pictures for the family/friends to colour in when they get happy mail - colouring is so good for you! The middle section that has been cut out can be used on another card so you get two cards for one.
 The next two cards are made using the beautiful Berry Burst cardstock that I will miss as it is an In Color that is retiring.
I changed this card below after I photographed it and used the embossing folder from the Occasions catalogue called Dot to Dot to give the card more texture. Will add a picture tommorrow to show the difference.




Also had to include a stampset from the Occasions cattie called Beach Happy that I will miss.
Has the lovely Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and the Gingham Gala 6" by 6" DSP that I will miss - it has been my favourite of the In-Colors.

Thank you for popping in .


Now the list is complete but I am linking back to the start in case you have not see them all. We are back to the wonderful Bronwyn Eastley and I can't wait to see what favourite she has used.


Until next time
Happy stamping

 Thank you for joining us tonight and I am  glad it was not saturday night we had sleet and a lovely dusting of snow on the mountains and trouble with the internet!
You may have popped in from the wonderful Narelle Macey and I can't wait to see what she has made
Now here below is the sketch Teneale has given us

Am Loving the Dear Doily Cling Bundle - 150616 (I just realised this morning that it is now unavailable as are the framelits but you can leave your email address and SU will notify you when in stock). I have been loving using both the framelits & the stamps.

The stamp set by itself is still available to purchase - order number 148690.


Used the lovely Silver & Petal Pink Baker's Twine - 146288 for the card instead of the Linen Thread that I generally use.

INKspired Sketch Blog hop 93 -


Thank you for joining us on this sunday night for the INKspired blog hop. You may have hopped across from the lovely Narelle Macey and I can't wait to see what she has made.
I have missed the last few hops due to work so am super excited to make it back for this hop.
Teneale has given us the following sketch for this hop but what to do.....
Image may contain: text
Have been loving all the Sale-A-Bration products so thought I would start with the lovely Painted Seasons stampset from the bundle below which is matched with the gorgeous DSP.

UNSET

I used the Painted Season Stampset from the bundle above for my card and used the framelits  below to cut the flowers out which was so quick - thanks Stampin' Up! 
Four Seasons Framelits Dies
Four Seasons Framelits Dies - order number 150074 and they cost $48.00 to buy


Used for the flowers - Pineapple Punch, Gorgeous Grape and Flirty Flamingo ink with a hint of Early Espresso for the centre of that flower. Granny Apple Green and Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves.
I used a framelit from Rose Trellis Thinlits Dies to stamp the words on - isn't it a gorgeous die! I also used the trellis from the same pack of thinlits to cut the vellum from.
It is very hard to see but I embossed a piece of Flirty Flamingo with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder from the main catalogue - page 223.
I have tried in this picture below to show you the lines that go across the cardstock from the Subtle Dynamic embossing folder.



UNSET
All Adorned Photopolymer stampset - 149728 spend $90. before postage and you can order this set.


Thank you for popping in tonight.
Now it is onto the delightful Allison McLeod to see what she has made.



Until next time
Happy stamping
