Inspire.Create.Stamping 'Sketch' Challenge #108

Hello and welcome to the Inspire.Create.Stamping 'Sketch' Challenge.

The Design Team have created cards from the 'Sketch' below, and we hope to inspire you to get creating and add your projects to our gallery. 

You can add your project here.

I have made a quick and simple card.
The best part is that you get 6 card fronts from 1 sheet of the '12" x 12" Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper', and 6 cards ready for your stash.
And you will use 3 sheets of cardstock for the card bases.

Such a stunning design, and fabulous colours on the 'Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper', that I wanted to make the banners pop using 'Basic White' cardstock and add a few 'Rhinestone Basic Jewels'.

I have added embossing to the top and bottom banners using the 'Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder'.
Banner Measurements: 1.2cm or 1/4" wide for the smallest 'Lovely Labels Pick A Punch'.
Sentiment: 7cm or 2-3/4" - propped up with 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.
Top banner: 7.5cm or 3"  
Bottom banner:.8cm or 3-3/8" 

And the very last addition to the card front are the 'Rhinestone Basic Jewels' which I have coloured using the 'Flirty Flamingo Dark Stampin' Blends Marker'.
Colour the 'Rhinestone Basic Jewels' directly on the packet. Use the 'Take Your Pick Tool' for easy removal from the backing paper, and for placement onto the card front.


Thankyou for visiting and I really hope to have inspired you to join our Inspire.Create.Stamping 'Sketch' Challenge.

Just Add Ink - Summer Blog Hop

 Hello, and welcome to my blog.

The Just Add Ink Design Team have a fabulous Blog Hop with a Summer theme, and we have all created from the Inspiration photo below.

We would love for you to join in with our Challenge, and add your 'Summer' project here.



Summer in Australia is all about the sun, surf, sand and ice blocks!
What do you call ice blocks where you're from?

I was inspired by our Inspiration photo, and also Susan Wong.
I asked my 2 boys what their favourite ice block flavours are - we usually add Coconut Milk when we blitz the frit, and they both helped pick the colours to coordinate;
Lime & Blueberry = Granny Apple Green + Coastal Cabana
Mango & Strawberry = Mango Melody + Flirty Flamingo
Peach & Blackcurrant = Petal Pink + Highland Heather

Details: 
Embossing Paste and Basic Pattern Decorative Mask
Ornate Layers Dies
Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder
Shaker Shapes
Fussy cut sentiment

Next up is Di and her super cute 'Summer' themed creation.


Thankyou for visiting and I really hope to have inspired you to join our Just Add Ink Challenge. 
See you next time. D x

It's Colour INKspiraton Challenge time, and our first Challenge for 2022.

Our Challenge runs for 4 weeks, concluding Monday 7th February, and we are looking forward to seeing your project in our gallery. Add your project here.



 How beautiful is our Inspiration photo?, chosen by Lou.
This is Mooloolaba Beach, Sunshine Coast in sunny Queensland, Australia.

My take using the 'Timeless Tropical' stamp set & 'In the Tropics Dies' with the sand, ocean and sky created with 'Blending Brushes'.

Some 'Embossing Paste' for the foam on the waves & clouds.
And 'Rest & Relax' stamped onto the coloured cardstock.

The palm trees have been die cut with 'Stampin' Dimensionals' added for dimension.

Oh, how I would love to be under a palm tree by a 'Coastal Cabana' sea sipping a Pina Colada! 

Thankyou for visiting and I really hope to have inspired you to join our CI Challenge. 
See you next time. D x


Colour INKspiration is celebrating 5 years, and I clearly remember my first project joining in the fun #CI001.
I was chosen as Guest Designer for #CI05, and then my first post as a Colour INKspiration Crew Member was #CI07.
And here I still am, with a magnificent bunch of creative, supportive women from the South Pacific and we just love what we do!

Inspire.Create Stamping 'Birthday' Challenge #107

Happy New Year and welcome to my blog for our first Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenge for 2022!

Our Challenge theme is 'Birthday', and we would love for you to join in the fun and add your project to our gallery here.




Now's the time to get crafting and make up a stash of Birthday cards for the start of the year.

My creations are quite quick & easy to make, adding a 'His & Hers' option using the same Designer Series Paper as a card front.


The cards are made to look like they are gift wrapped, with a 'Happy Birthday' gift tag.

'His' Card Base 'Misty Moonlight'
Layer & strips: 'Crushed Curry'
Card Front : 'Pattern Party Designer Series Paper'

'Hers' Card Base: 'Coastal Cabana'
Layer & strips: 'Bermuda Bay'
Card Front: 'Pattern Party Designer Series Paper'

Adhere the 'Pattern Party Designer Series Paper' to the layer, and adhere to the card base. 
The cardstock strips are 1/4" wide, to create the 'ribbon'.

Die cut the 'Tailor Made Tags Dies' using 'Basic White' cardstock
Stamp the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment using 'Bermuda Bay' ink.
Stamp the spots using stamped off  'Crushed Curry' ink.
Loop through some 'Crumb Cake Twine'.
Apply 'Stampin' Dimensionals' to the back of the tag, and adhere to the card front. 

I love the little banners on the 'Pattern Party Designer Series Paper', and the colours are a great combination for a 'His & Hers' card.

Looking for to seeing your project, and if the Design Team have inspired you with their creations?
See you next Challenge. D x
