INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 6 -

Hello everyone, you may have hopped across from Marlene's blog so welcome to our INKspired  Sketch Blog Hop number 6. We hope you enjoy the cards that we have shared today so please do take the time to click around and look at everyone's and of course we love comments. 
Another picture of the cute baby parrots around at the moment, they are starting to brighten up in colour. (hard to see amongst the weeds but had to leave them as they love eating them). That's Dave's excuse for not mowing them....That's what happens when you run a business everyone else's lawn or property gets mowed first!!

Baby parrot

Teneale has given us the following sketch to play with this fortnight

Love the different shapes, so now what to do with this one and what stamp set to use.....
I am loving colouring with the Blendabilities at the moment so which flower stamp should I choose? Of course the - I Like You (hostess set)

Felt I needed vibrant colours ( it is trying to be summer 27 degrees C) so teamed Real Red cardstock & Real Red from the Brights Background  Designer Series Paperstack with a tiny border showing and then used Bermuda Bay for the main card ( may need your sunglasses on...) its very bright ha is all from the Brights range.

50th Birthday Card - So Very Grateful

Hello everyone. Thought I would show a card I made for my friend's 50th Birthday.

 First I had to make some blossoms  and buttons for the card as I could not decide at the time what I would use.The ones on the left are made with Bermuda Bay and ones on right side were with Pacific Point (I had used a few before I took the picture).

Front of the card
Then I embossed all the Daffodil Delight pieces with the Lovely Lace embossing folder.

Inside of the card
Used the MDS digital download - So Very Grateful Stamp Brush Set and the Hearts Border Punch at the top and the Artisan Label Punch to make the "feet".

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 5 -

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. You may have just hopped across from Marlene's blog to mine so Hello. Thank you for taking the time to visit and please do leave a comment, we love receiving them.

I have been stamping the hostess flower stamps (page 240 of the catalogue) using the memento ink pad  and when I have time have been colouring them with my blendies, loving that so relaxing at the end of the day after dodging the kangaroos on the way home!! Just a quick peek at the baby parrots that have been enjoying brekkie outside our bedroom, they are so cute. (there were two but I was not quick enough) 

Now back to cards...

Here is the fifth sketch that Teneale  had done for us to use.

Here is my take on this. I love ovals so am enjoying this sketch. Combined the 2013-2015 In Colour of Crisp Cantaloupe with the lovely Thick Baker's Twine in the same color, love how Stampin' Up make it easy for us. Then coloured the flowers using the Blendabilities

I even remembered to take a pic of the inside...........

Have a great day and we hope you enjoy the Blog Hop with us. Thank you for visiting

Now it is onto Narelle Macey

See below all the products I have used. If you have any questions contact me.

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:
