Colour INKspiration #CI120

| on

 Hello, and welcome to my blog. 

The Colour INKspiration Crew have been creating for our new Colour Challenge and it's such a pretty combination of colours. Thanks to Jan for picking our Inspiration photo 

Check out the Crew's creations, and be INKspired to join in with us. You can add your project to our gallery here.

'Polished Pink', 'Soft Sea Foam', 'Just Jade' & 'Misty Moonlight'.
You can also use 'Basic Black', 'Basic White', 'Crumb Cake', 'Sahara Sand', 'Very Vanilla' & 'Metallics'.

Seeing as the 2020-2022 In Colors 'Just Jade' & 'Misty Moonlight' are retiring soon, I have used the about to retire 'Cactus Cuties Bundle' and 'Ombre Gift Bags' for my creation.

I added a touch of 'Soft Sea Foam' ink using a 'Blending Brush' onto the 'Soft Sea Foam' die cut element.
Stamping the cactus plant with 'Just Jade' ink, the planter & sentiment with 'Misty Moonlight', and the cactus lowers punched using 'Polished Pink' cardstock.

I adhered my 'Cactus Cutie' element to a 'Polished Pink Ombre Gift Bag' - cut down to create the card front.

And a strip from the 'Ombre Gift Bag' makes for a lovely finish inside the card.

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I hope to have inspired you with my creation?
See you next time. D x

Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Pre Order

| on
It's the 'Stamping Sunday Design Team Blog Hop' and this month we are showcasing 'Pre Order' products. 
As Stampin' Up Demonstrators, we have a selection of NEW products we can Pre Order before the NEW Annual Catalogue goes live.

I have selected products from the 'Tea Boutique Suite Collection'.

A Cornishware Tea cup with the 'Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes'.

I have waterwashed 'Pacific Point' ink onto 'Shimmery White' cardstock cut into 6mm pieces.
Trimming the bottom of the cup, and adhering to a 'Stitched So Sweetly' die-cut element.

And a lovely matching envelope.

And introducing the 'Twa Boutique Designer Series Paper'.
Tip: I traced the inside of the Tea cup die with a 'Basic Black' Stampin' Write Marker.

I just love a card and gift tag - especially from the 'Tea Boutique Suite Collection'.

Thankyou so much for visiting, and now it's time to visit the Design Team and to see their Pre Order creations. See you next time. D x

| on

 We have an 'Inspiration' Challenge for this weeks Just Add Ink Design Team Challenge. 

Take from the Inspiration photo and use the colours, your choice of stamp set/Bundle, ribbons and embellishments to create a project inspired by what you see.

Add your project to our gallery here.

I have used the NEW 'Cup of Tea Bundle' - available May 2022, and I was inspired by the Autumnal tones; 'Balmy Blue', 'Cajun Craze', 'Coastal Cabana', 'Crumb Cake', Soft Suede' & 'Very Vanilla' 🍁🍂

'Thankyou for your Friendship'
I stamped the tea cup with 'Versamark Ink' onto 'Soft Suede' cardstock, and used 'Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder' to heat emboss the image.

The foliage is stamped using 'Cajun Craze' ink onto "Very Vanilla' cardstock and the flowers are a combination of 'Balmy Blue' & 'Coastal Cabana' ink.

Thankyou for visiting my blog and I will see you for the next JAI Challenge. D x

Colour INKspiration #CI119

It's Colour INKspiration Challenge time, and it's a beautiful Colour Challenge!

Pretty 'Brights & Subtles' with Gold and an Easter inspiration...

The Colour INKspiration Crew would love to see your project in our gallery, and you can add it here.

'Freash Freesia', 'Flirty Flamingo', 'Magenta Madness', 'Pool Party' & 'Gold'.
'Basic Black ', 'Basic White', ' Crumb Cake', 'Sahara Sand', Very Vanilla' & 'Metallics' can be used as well.

'Happy Easter'
I have created a lidded box with a belly band using the 'Easter Friends' stamp set.
The 'Fresh Freesia' Gingham pattern is from the 'Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper'.
Click here to make your very own treat box (without the insert). Thankyou to Candy from for her inspiration. 

The belly band is the 'White 3/4" Frayed Ribbon' attached to the 'Fresh Freesia' Gingham DSP/cardstock piece using 'Tear & Tape Adhesive' knotted at the side.

Decorated with darling  die cut flowers from the 'Pierced Blooms Dies' with 'Gold Metallic Specialty Paper' leaves from the 'Forever Flourishing Dies'.

As you can see, the belly band slides off the box revealing the lid to be taken off, and inside the box  a selection of Easter eggs.

A clise up of the 'Pierced Blooms Dies' flowers & 'Gold Metallic Specialty Paper' leaves.

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I hope to have inspired you with my creation?
See you next time. D x

Inspire.Create.Stamping 'Case the Designer' Challenge #114

| on

Welcome to my blog, and to the Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenge Blog Hop.

Today we are inspired by and are CASEing our Design Team Member Kate, and her divine creation.

CASE = Copy And Selectively Edit 

Please join in the fun and we can't wait to see your project. Add your project here.

I have used the gorgeous 'Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper' and 'Timeless Tulips' stamp set for my creation. A couple of retiring products that match beautifully...

'Happy Mother's Day' from the 'Timeless Tulips' stamp set.
(Mother's Day is celebrated in Australia on the 2nd Sunday in May)

I added a 'Ladybug Trinket' because I couldn't find my 'Bumblebee Trinkets' - still cute though.
Abd a scattering of 'Pearl Basic Jewels' onto the 'Designer Series Paper' - difficult to see in the photo. 

'Meadow Moments Embossing Folders' add a touch of texture on the 'Crumb Cake' layer. And a little bit of 'Pale Papaya Open Weave Ribbon' for that little touch of colour coordination.

I hope you have have been inspired to join in with our Inspiration Challenge? See you next time. D x
