Inkspired Blog Hop 77

Good evening and welcome to the Inkspired Blog Hop! We have six wonderful projects for you to look at and inspire you. You may have come from the amazing Narelle or you might be starting here.

Here is our starting sketch:


Here is my card:



Last blog hop I made a card for the woman who organised the Harmony Day activities at my school. The card for tonight is one of the thank you cards I made for the parent volunteers. I made 3 cards (all exactly the same) for the parents who went into different classrooms to teach the children about the country they are from and complete an art activity from that culture.

I used Fresh Fig and Whisper White yardstick. The daisy is from the Daisy Delight bundle, stamped in Fresh Fig. The Designer Series Paper is Fresh Florals and the ribbon is Fresh Fig sheer ribbon. The circle is from the Stitched Shapes framelits and then I decided that the daisy needed a Gold Faceted Gem in the middle.

Next on the hop is Maree. I can't wait to see her incredible creation.



Until next time,
Allison

Inkspired Blog Hop 76

Good evening and Happy Easter! We decided to go ahead with this weeks blog hop and I am really looking forward to seeing what the others have created. You may have come from Narelle or you may be starting here.


Here is this week's sketch:



And here is my card:



I wanted to make a card for someone at work. She worked very hard at organising Harmony Day activities at the school I work at.

I used Berry Burst, Powder Pink and Fresh Fig inks with Watercolour Wings stamp set to create the butterfly and sentiment. I used the Square Framelits and Stitched Framelits to create the squares. The washi tape is from the Pick A Pattern set. The Designer Series Paper is the Fresh Florals in Fresh Fig.

Next on the hop is Maree. I wonder what she has made for tonight...

Until next time,

Allison

Inkspired Blog Hop 74

Good evening and welcome to the latest Inkspired Blog Hop. You may be coming from Teneale or maybe you are starting here. Don't forget to check out all of the wonderful cards.

Here is our sketch:


And here are my cards:



Yes I did make three cards this week, I just couldn't decide which colour to choose! The Designer Series Paper is Petal Garden. I used the Tranquil Tulips Hostess stamp set and the sentiment is from Cake Soiree.

The ribbons are all different. On the Sweet Sugarplum card I used is silver ribbon, on the Calypso Coral card it is the Shimmer ribbon from Sale-A-Bration and on the Pool Party card it is Whisper White sheer ribbon. I can here you saying it doesn't look like Whisper White. That is because I coloured it with my darker Pool Party Stampin' Blend.

Next on the hop is Maree. I can't wait to see what she has made for us.




Until next time,

Inkspired Blog Hop 73

Good evening and welcome to another Inkspired Blog Hop! You may be starting here or you may have come from the wonderfully creative Narelle. I can't wait to see what she made for tonight.


Here is our inspiration:



Here is my creation:



I slightly altered the sketch from squares to rectangles to suit my image more. The stamp is the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration set and I chose not to put a sentiment on this one. I used the Ruffled Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with Old Olive cardstock.

The centrepiece was stamped with Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive and Basic Black Archival ink. I then used my Layering Square Framelits to create the scalloped rectangle.

Next on the hop is Maree. Don't forget to check out all the wonderful cards tonight!

Until next time.

Inkspired Blog Hop 72

Good evening and welcome to another amazing Inkspired Blog Hop. You might have come from Narelle or you might to starting here.

We have a new sketch every fortnight to inspire our creativity and here is the latest:


Here is what I came up with:



This is a bit different to what I usually do. While looking at my card stash (which took long enough I have too many that aren't being used) I realised that there is a lack of masculine cards so decided that now was the time to start to rectify it.

I used Pacific Point, Real Red and Delightful Daffodil for my colours. The stamp set is Epic Celebration and the ribbon is the Shimmer Ribbon. Both of these are from the Sale-A-Bration catalogue.

Next on the hop is Maree. I am looking forward to see what she has created.



Until next time,

Allison
