Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges - 'Sketch' Challenge #029

Hello, and welcome to my blog. 
This fortnight, the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges Design Team have been busy making for our 'Sketch Challenge' #029


We would love for you to join in with our Challenge, and you can add your project to our Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges blog page here.
I have used the 'First Frost' Bundle and coordinating 'Frosted Floral' DSP for my creation - all products found in the Holiday Catalogue.

I started out with the 'Frosted Floral' Designer Series Paper. 
This DSP is just so pretty, and shimmery, and I wanted to make it front and centre of my creation.
The card base of 'Tranquil Tide' cardstock, stamped with the floral image using 'Tranquil Tide Classic Stampin' Pad'.

The sentiment panel is made up with layers of 'Tranquil Tide', 'Crumb Cake' and 'Shimmery White' cardstock.
I stamped the image onto the 'Shimmery White' cardstock panel using 'Crumb Cake' ink, and then stamping the 'Congratulations'
with 'Blackberry Bliss' ink.

I can't tell you how lovely the 'Tranquil Tide 1/4" Ribbon is. So, you really need to have some in your ribbon stash! It's just beautiful.
Finishing with some 'Linen Thread' and a bow.

Thankyou so much for visiting, and I hope to have inspired you with my creation? 
See you soon. D x

Just Add Ink #JAI430

An Inspiration photo for Just Add Ink #430, and the JAI Design Team have made some gorgeous creations to share with you.
We would love for you to join in and add your creations to our JAI Challenge Blog gallery. Click here to add your link.


How pretty is this inspiration photo? 
I couldn't wait to get creating to make a pretty floral posy on a jar lid!

A handmade Gerbera from the 'Daisy Delight' stamp set and coordinating 'Daisy Punch'!
How to make a Gerbera...
* Stamp 4 daisy images onto 'Whisper White' cardstock with 'Sahara Sand Classic Stampin' Pad'. 
* Punch the 4 images, and layer the 4 daisy flowers to form the Gerbera.
* Stamp the middle of the Gerbera - 'So Saffron' ink onto 'So Saffron' cardstock. Punch with 1/2" Circle Punch. Adhere onto flower.
* Middle fringe: Using the 'Paper Snips', snip the long edge of a piece of 'Very Vanilla' cardstock 6mm x 15cm (1/4" x 6"), and roll around the handle of the 'Paper Piercing Tool' to form a ring. 
*Adhere on top of flower.

And mini rosebuds too! (See 'How to' tutorial below)
Greenery and foliage provided from 'Jar of Love' stamp set + 'Everyday Jars Framelits Dies'
And the tag from the 'Wood Words' stamp set + 'Wood Crate Framelits Dies'.


How to make a rosebud...
Top left: Die cut a circke from the 'Layering Circle Framelits Dies' (2nd from smallest) from 'Blushing Bride' cardstock.
Top right: Snip the circle creating a swirl - start on the outside working to the middle.
Bottom left: Grab your trusty 'Paper Piercing Tool' and fold the middle of the circle around the tip of the tool, and start rolling to form the middle of the rosebud. Keep rolling to form the flower.
Bottom right: a mini rosebud ready for decorating your project. Adhere the end by folding back and under the rosebud scrolls.

Colour INKspiration #CI43

The Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #43 is using the 2018-2020 In Color Collection. We hope you get creating and join in the fun, and you could be chosen as a Guest Designer!
You can add your creations to our gallery here.


Congratulations to one of our Guest Designers for this Challenge, Jan Clothier
You may have hopped to me from Jan's blog and her amazing creation?, or have started here. Welcome.


Choose 1, 2, 3, 4 or all 5 of the 2018-2020 In Colors - I have managed to use all 5 colours for my creation.
You can also include Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Whisper White & Metallics.


I just love the 'So Santa' stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.
Here he is decked out in his 'Lovely Lipstick' suit, racing around on his 'Grapefruit Grove' scooter. 
Complete with a 'Call Me Clover' sack full of 'Pineapple Punch' wrapped presents, tied with 'Blueberry Bushel' bows!

I have paper-pieced the suit & hat, scooter, sack, presents and large bow. Everything else I coloured with '2018-2020 Stampin' Write Markers'.
 Also paper-piecing with 'Silver foil' for the wheels, light, belt buckle & sunglasses.
For paper-piecing you need your trusty 'Paper Snips' and lots of patience to sit and fussy cut the images. If you're not up to the task, then get your colouring on with the 'Stampin' Write Markers'.
*The bear was coloured with 'Stampin' Blends Markers' in 'Light Lovely Lipstick' and 'Crumb Cake Combo'.

'Just scooting by with a Christmas hi!'
And that 'Corrugated Dynamic TIEF' background is a lovely addition for the card front.

Next up is my gorgeous friend, Nikki, and her stunning Christmas creation. You will definitely want to CASE Nikki's card.


Thankyou so much for paying me a visit. Enjoy hopping!
