An Inkspiration Christmas!

Hey everyone!

This week for Inkspiration we are doing a Christmas showcase. The ones I am showing are projects I taught in my very last workshop for the year. I had a great time and the girls enjoyed themselves too! I got the ideas for these little beauties in several different places. Delys Cram for the Jelly Bean Elf, Julia Leece for the cute santa owl and I have seen heaps of different candy cane mice, but not sure whose first I saw. Thank you ladies for the wonderful inspiration.

Aren’t they just the cutest?! I am going to make more Elf legs for the kids at Christmas and hang them in the Christmas tree, but I will be putting red and green M&M’s in those. Maybe even some of those mice! LOL!

Don’t forget to go to the Inkspiration Challenge Blog to check out the rest of the DT creations and link us to your Christmas creation!

Inkspiration Challenge #99

Hey everyone!

It’s Inkspiration time! This week it is a sketch challenge and a square one at that.

I Think this would be a perfect scrapbook page LO but I stuck with the card. See I am boring aren’t I?! LOL! It’s just when I saw this design an idea came to me to use that large panel as a patterned scene, like wrapping paper and the three panels can be used for the sentiment.

Have a look

I like how it turned out and also how neutral it is. I used subtle hints of Cherry Cobbler, Pear Pizzazz and Pool Party. It looks better close up. For the sentiment I used Cherry Cobbler embossing powder. It makes the card ‘pop’ I love it. I used stamp sets Jolly Bingo Bits and Welcome Christmas.

Hop on over to the Inkspiration Challenge Blog and link to your creation and check out the rest of the DT’s designs.

Birthday Treats!!

It was my sweet girl, Akayla’s Birthday on the second of December, and she loves everything pretty, and so do I. That’s why I have lots of fun making her card and wrapping her goodies. A very pink and green girl to! Loves a princess or two also! LOL!

Oohhh I love those colours. I used Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz and Very Vanilla, with a little Early Espresso. Oh and the bow is Pretty in Pink 5/8″ Satin Ribbon.

The stamp sets used are Array of Sunshine and Happiest Birthday Wishes. Both sets are found in the hostess section of the Stampin’ Up! catalogue. They are both gorgeous sets and worth having.

Here are some pics of the nights festivities

So that’s another year done. I wish it would slow down, my babies are growing up too quickly. My youngest starts Prep next year and I am just not looking forward to being by myself with no one to entertain. I suppose after a couple of weeks of twiddling my thumbs I will find heaps to do……maybe even card making!! LOL!

Inkspiration Challenge #98

Hey everyone!

I am super excited!!! Tomorrow I am leaving for Rockhampton to my sisters’ for two weeks to help her with her first baby which is due today. I hope she holds out until I get there! LOL! I am going to be an Aunty for the first time and like I said I am super excited. I might even bring back my little nephew with me, but shhhhhh my sister doesn’t know yet that I night be stealing her baby!!! LOL!

Anyway todays challenge is a colour one

I am really happy with my creation. I had a play with Stitched Stockings a stamp set available in the brand new Summer Mini.

I also used the stamp set I Dig You for the presents. Pretty cute idea huh? I am sure I am not the first to think of it though. LOL! The Christmas tree branch is from the Tags Til Christmas set. I just used my Old Olive marker to ink with. Super easy.

Make sure you check out the rest of the DT’s creations at the Inkspiration Challenge Blog and of course to submit your design.
