INKspired Sketch Blog hop 94 -

 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.

Words are Stamped in Fresh Fig ink.

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.....

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.


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.

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

So Hoppy Together - free Sale-A-Bration product

Missed joining in this week with What Will You Stamp as I had internet issues. I still wanted to upload what I had made for a friend's child as I love these cute frogs Don't forget to hop over and see the cards made this week at WWYS#210
Boy have they been popular and having the framelits for them is so amazing - thanks Stampin' Up!
Will be sad to see this set disappear at the end of Sale-A-Bration - March 31st or if they sell out first.

Had to take a picture on our own pond,unfortunately the wind blew a reed over the card and I didn't realise...
This card is for a friend's child who loves frogs so I hope he enjoys it.

The framelits can be a purchase that helps you get towards the $90.00 that you need to get these frogs for free - Framelits cost $47.00 in  Australia and order number is 150073.

Be quick as they have sold out in overseas markets. Give me a call if you would like to order them
The words - Happy Birthday has come from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stampset which is on page 16 of the Occasions Catalolgue.

Until next time
Happy stamping
