INKspired Blog Hop #47

Hello stampers! Are you starting here or did you come from Lisa Eaton?  
Either is good, just make sure you hop all the way around.

Welcome to INKspired Blog Hop #47, our last before Christmas.  
Perfect opportunity to post a Christmas card, right? WRONG! 
Even with this gorgeous sketch (which SCREAMS WREATH – by the way). 

A return customer wants a few cards before the school holidays and I had very limited time on Friday as we went away for the weekend and I couldn’t bring my craft room.  This card was finished in about 10 minutes, the most time-consuming thing was cutting out the flowers. 

Anyway, here is our sketch. (See? – I told you it screams wreath!)

Here is my 6.30 am ten-minute card…
  I used two of the cards from the Hello Lovely Project Life kit 
and just stamped the Thank You in the middle of the ring.
 Easy peasy, fast and furious!  

I wanted to give it some dimension so I used glue dots to raise the flowers up a little.

This weekend my family are staying at my Aunts “holiday house” in Gerroa on NSW South Coast and it is just divine! Here are some photos that my youngest daughter took.

Next up is the lovely Renee Lynch with her beautiful card…

INKspired Blog Hop #46

Hello Stampers!

I hope you have all had a great week!  It's awesome to see Lisa Eaton back for this hop and to "celebrate" her beautiful card this week.

As usual we have a sketch to get us INKspired this week,

I was chatting to a friend the other morning and was inspired by our conversation to use the angel from Wonder of Christmas stamp set.  I also used the sentiment from Greetings from Santa and the matching Detailed Santa Thinlits Dies. I matted my image on gold foil cardstock (just to let a little gold show through the thinlit cutout) and raised it up with Dimensionals, to give it an extra dimension.  To match the hint of gold I used a Wink of Stella brush pen in gold to colour the wings

I love to colour, and watercolouring is such a subtle way to colour.
I need some more practise as my angels hair has "bled" onto her face :( 

Make sure you go around the whole hop and check out the rest of the team's creations.

Next up is Renee Lynch
