Colour INKspiration #CI49

Hello and welcome to my blog!

Well, today is a very exciting day for me as I have been invited to be a Crew member of the amazing Colour INKspiration team! Of course I said "Y E S"  to this wonderful opportunity as I will  be working alongside some very talented demonstrators.  This is my first blog post as a Crew member.

You may have hopped from the lovely Monique Fielder! Or have started with my blog post!

I am really looking forward to creating every month for this Blog Hop. So, please subscribe to my blog so you will see the Colour INKspiration team create beautiful cards and other items on a regular basis.  You will be able to hop from my blog via a link to see all the demonstrators creations. You can subscribe to my blog via the link on the right hand side of my blog.

As you can imagine I have been excitedly preparing for this Blog Hop!

The colours for this months challenge are Melon Mambo, Pineapple Punch, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather. A beautiful combination with endless possibilities!

My thoughts instantly turned to a Birthday Card and then the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set with the sweet candles.

I stamped the candles from the Picture Perfect Birthday in Highland Heather, Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana. I then stamped the flame at the top of each candle in Pineapple Punch. I fussy cut each individual candle out with the flame. 

I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment in Versa Mark and then heat embossed it in white. I then punched the sentiment out with the Classic Label Punch  a perfect fit don't you think?

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut a white circular base for the candles. Then a Melon Mambo Layering Circle Framelit to sit underneath.

The white embossed layer was created with the Dot to Dot Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. A great match for this stamp set. I put another layer of Whisper White card stock underneath the embossed layer as I feel it gives the card a more finished look, especially when using white.

The card base is Melon Mambo and the Ribbon is the new Whisper White Flax ribbon. This ribbon is very soft and easy to use.

That is my first Card for the Crew Blog Hop!

I want to thank all the gorgeous Colour INKspiration Crew ladies for welcoming me so warmly to the team. They have really gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and special. Such a fantastic group of like minded women. I am looking forward to getting to know each of them.

Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - February

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I am very excited to be Blog Hopping with the wonderful people participating in Kylie’s Demonstrator Training Group. They are all just the best people! We are all learning, supporting and encouraging each other.

I decided to make a very quick card for this blog post. I have had my eye on Fable Friends stamp set since the Occasions Catalogue came out. It reminds me of Beatrix Potter books that I loved as a child.

I have stamped the sweet little squirrel in memento onto Shimmery White cardstock. I then have coloured him in with blends. I love the creaminess and shimmer of this cardstock. I stamped the grass and sentiment an Old Olive ink. 

I used the Stitched Rectangle shapes to die cut around this image. Then used the stunning new Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper to matt the image. This gorgeous DSP will only be available to earn during Sale-a-bration from the 15th of February. The card base is Shimmery White cardstock.  

I really love how this cute little card turned out! 

Please visit the next blog so you can see another beautiful creation!

Have a great day!

Valentine's Blog Hop

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog!

The theme for this blog hop is Valentine's.

 With Valentine's Day fast approaching it was a great opportunity to get creating with the Large Letters Framelits, All My Love DSP and the Well Said Bundle.  

I made card below first. I love how well Real Red Cardstock works with the All My Love DSP!
It was a very simple card to make. Using the Magnetic Platform on my Bigshot helped cut the Large Letters Framelits out of the Real Red Cardstock in perfect alignment.....Hallelujah! I then glued the All My Love DSP behind the Real Red Cardstock. I had to glue the centre of the "O" in to the space. I stamped the "You" from  the Well Said stamp set in Versa Mark and embossed with White  Stampin' Emboss Powder on Basic Black Cardstock. The sweet little Real Red heart is from the Well Written Framelits Dies. These dies are just the sweetest! 

After completing the project above I had the word "LOVE" all cut out. So I decided to create another card using all the left over materials that I had used in the first card. Again, another easy card to recreate. If you look closely you will see that at the top and bottom of the DSP I have stamped the stitching from the Needle and Thread stamp set. I used the Well Written Framelits Dies to cut out the word "you" in Basic Black Cardstock. Assembling this card took no time at all 

As I still had left over DSP I thought I could make a sweet little Pillow Box to hold some chocolates for my Valentine 

The punch is a new item that will be available to customers from the 1st March 2019 as part of the Sale-a-Bration Coordination items. It is called the Story Table Punch. Look out for this adorable punch as you won't want to miss out! I think it will go fast.

I have stamped the sentiment from the Well Said Stamp Set. A perfect Valentine's sentiment don't you think? I punched it out with the Story Label Punch and laid it on one of the Oval Stitched Shape Framelits in Real Red.  The Belly band over the DSP is a piece of Real Red Cardstock 

Thanks again for visiting my blog!

Please hop over to the next blog to see what amazing Valentine's creation is there!

Have a great Valentine's Day!
