INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 31 - Its nearly christmas.....

Hello everyone
Welcome to our last blog hop for 2015 and a big thank you for joining us
each fortnight!
You may have hopped across from Narelle or come straight here.
Make a cuppa, sit down and put your feet up and relax and enjoy our 31st blog hop.
Just a quick peak at my baby ducks that our mother chook is raising beautifully - she does get a bit cranky when they go swiming! We have seven and two are black.

Now back to the hop...

A special thanks goes to our friend -Teneale for bringing it all together each fortnight.

Here is the sketch we have this hop
When I first looked at this I thought love it but then couldn't decide what stampset to use....
I WAS going to make a chrissie card..had it in my mind all week
But then I needed a card for a friend so went with the lovely
Blended Bloom stamp which I embossed in Black  on watercolour paper.
I then coloured using a Blender pen and Melon Mambo marker. Daffodil Delight marker in the middle with some rhinestones.
Cut the English Garden DSP using the Banner Framelit and the little framelit for the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.
I attached a Tea Lace paper Doily to the main card.
Then popped up the banner using dimensionals on top after attaching the linen thread.
I then cut out my flower carefully and attached to the banner
Here is my card - hope you enjoy it.

Now it is onto Kabrina to see what she has created - can't wait.

We will return in January 2016
after a short xmas and new year break.

Below is what I have used to make my card.

INKspired Sketch Blog Hop 30 -

Hello everyone and welcome to our 30th INKspired Blog hop
You may have hopped across from Narelle and I am not going to even guess what theme 
she has used this week as I was wrong last time! 
This week Teneale has given us an interesting sketch - I wasn't sure what I would do with it.....
Then I had a lightbulb moment 
thank goodness!

I swung the sketch around as I wanted to colour in again (are u addicted to colouring as I am!)
I embossed the Perfect Peacock in black on Whisper White cardstock. I then coloured in with Brights and Subtles markers. I sponged around the white to soften it with Marina Mist. Love the word stamp with the same name as the stampset - I think You're Great. I added a strip of Marina Mist cardstockthat I had embossed with the Woodland textured Embossing Folder and attached the word circle to it. I sponged the circle a bit more to make the colour more intense. 

Thank you for stopping by

Now it is onto Kabrina and I can't wait to see what she has made
See you next hop

Stampin' Up! On Stage Melbourne - Reason for the Season

Hi Everyone
On saturday (14th November) I was enjoying the first Stampin' Up! OnStage event which was fantastitic. I went to Melbourne but you could have gone to any of the venues around the world. There was only Melbourne or Perth in Australia.
Sat at a table with a group of delightful women from SA and we had fun making what was demonstrated and took lots of pictures. Thank you for a great day.
The delightful Joy Smelt was making tags for the NES (New Elite Stampers) team
and I felt I needed to make a card for her and then a few swaps....
So on thursday night sick as I was (had already cancelled a cardclass)
started cutting and figured that I could put them together on 
friday night in Melbourne!!
I decided to cut the flower out and stick it onto a basic black wreath cut using Wonderful Wreath framelits.
Stamped with the new  basic black archival ink.
I used the ponsettia from the Reason for the Season stamp set which  I stamped on whisper white cardstock in the basic black archival ink and then used the rose red ink for the flowers and Pear Pizzazz ink for the leaves. I used the Daffodil Delight marker to colour in the centre of the flower.
I used Rose Red card stock as the base for the card front and stamped the words in the bottom right hand corner . In the picture below I have added it to a Whisper White main card  - a quick card except for the fussy cutting!

Now I am going to show you a few of the swaps I received. Unfortunately a few did not have any names attached to them so in that case I have typed unknown. If you know who made it leave their name in the comment section below.

I will put a few more up with some photos from the day next time.
I hope you have enjoyed these
