Just Add Ink - 'Sketch' Challenge #492

It's the Just Add Ink Design Team Challenge, and we have an awesome 'Sketch' Challenge for you.
Please join in, and create something fabulous from your stamp sets, and colours and limitless imagination.


Add your project to our Challenge Blog page, here.

My creation uses the 'Honey Bee Bundle', and Sale-a-Bration 'Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper'.

I had so much fun making this card!
I really didn't know where to start, as the Bundle is just so beautiful, and the Specialty DSP is just stunning!
I picked the DSP for the card front, and used a 'Layering Ovals Die' to make the oval elements.

I have used 'Melon Mambo' and 'Old Olive' Stampin' Write Markers to colour the flourishes. Die cutting them with the coordinating dies.
Next, I die cut 2 x honeycomb pieces in 'Shimmery White' cardstock, and coloured them with 'Crushed Curry' and 'Soft Suede' ink with an 'Aqua Painter'.
Colouring the bee image with 'Stampin' Blends Markers' and adhering with a 'Stampin' Dimensional'.

The sentiment is heat embossed onto a 'Basic Black' cardstock banner.

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I hope you have been inspired to join in with our Challenge?

Hello, and welcome back to the Colour INKspiration Crew Blog Hop.



This next Challenge has a beautiful image for inspiration and 'Subtle' colours, and we can't wait for you to join in the fun!
Add your project to our Colour INKspiration gallery here.


Highland Heather, Pool Party, Gray Granite & Pear Pizzazz.
You can also use Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Whisper White & Metallics.

I started out with the adorable 'Under My Umbrella Bundle'.

I coloured the leaves and the gumboots using 'Pear Pizzazz' ink & 'Gray Granite' ink and a 'Blender Pen'.

'No Matter the Weather we're Friends Forever'
Some fussy cutting required for the flowers.

I love the background feature using the 'Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder'.

'Full Monty' - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to my blog and to the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop. You are visiting me on the South Coast of NSW, Australia!
This month we are creating with a Suite of products, 
and that's why the theme is 'Full Monty'.
You may have joined me from the lovely, Jeanna, or have started here. 
Enjoy the creations from our favourite Suite.


I have used the 'Tropical Oasis Suite' - I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it!


I started out making Retro Surf style cards, and tags, 
and I was inspired by the 70's Surf era.

I have used strips of cardstock from the 'Subtles' family, and the gorgeous 'Aloha' die.
I die cut 3 x 'Aloha' and adhered them together.

My gift tag uses smaller strips of cardstock, and the flower and leaf dies.
I die cut 3 of each of the flower and leaf, and adhered together.
I am loving the 'Braided Burlap Trim'!

I can't wait to make more of these... imagine the colour combinations you can create?

I have created a couple of masculine cards using the coloured cardstock strips.
Adding the heat embossed palm trees and a sentiment.

A different colour combination, and that Retro look.

I love both of these cards, and I am happy to have a couple of masculine cards in my stash.
Now to create some more!

I have used a card from the 'Timeless Tropical Memories & More Card Pack' front and centre.
The background is 'Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper'.
And the sentiment has the sweetest guitar element from the 'Tropical Oasis Trinkets'.

Another card from the 'Memories & More Card Pack'.
The background features the 'Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder'.
And a hibiscus element from the 'Tropical Oasis Trinkets'.

One for the boys, and one for the girls.
I love the 'Memories & More Card Pack' for quick card making. There are so many beautiful designs, and they are perfect for your Scarapbooking layouts too.

The Tropical Oasis Suite Bundle includes:
* Timeless Tropical Cling Stamp Set (10% off)
* In the Tropics Dies (10% off)
* Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper
* Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder
* Tropical Oasis Trinkets
* Saddle Brown Stazon Ink Pad and Refill
* Timeless Tropical Memories & More Card Pack
* 5/16" (8 mm) Braided Burlap Trim


Thankyou for visiting me, and keep on hopping to see the rest of the 
Design Teams creations.
Up next is my Queensland friend Tanya, and her beautiful projects.
See you next time. D x
