Colour INKspiration #CI07 - Colour Challenge

Today I'm doing a stint at Guest Designer for the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge! Colour INKspiration is a Facebook group where fun colour challenges are posted every second and fourth Wednesday of each month (plenty of time to be creative)!

Check out those gorgeous colours for this challenge! The colours are Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette and Tip Top Taupe! Sadly we'll be saying goodbye to Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe when the new annual catalogue gets release on the 1st June *sad face*...

These colours screamed flowers and Easter to me but since I don't actually have any Easter-related stamps I went with flowers and my set of the moment, the lovely Special Reason and Stylish Stems Framelits. I matched this with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder and one of my all time faves, Gorgeous Grunge, to create this bouquet-looking inspired card. The Thank You sentiment is from the Oh Happy Day stamp set that comes with the Oh Happy Day card kit and I think it just suits the grungy look perfectly!

Well, I hope you love or at least like my creation *lol*. It's been my very first blog hop so I'm glad you could drop by. You can continue the hop to the extremely talented Denita's blog here...

If you'd love to join in the fun of Colour INKspiration just head on over to the Facebook group and request to join. You'll see lots of lovely creations there too!

OnStage 2017 - Sydney Display Stamper Samples

At the end of January I was lucky enough to have been chosen as a Display Stamper for OnStage Sydney that was held on 8th April at Luna Park. This was only my second ever time attending an OnStage event, the last was April 2016, also in Sydney, and it's my very first time as a Display Stamper! Thank goodness I can now share, it's been the longest ever two months and I couldn't discuss any of this gorgeous stuff with anyone! Anyway, I can finally reveal what I was sent and what I made for my samples! We were asked to complete 15 projects but I went a little over and made 17.

Just Add Ink #353 - Just Add Critters

Sorry, I know there's not many cards being completed here lately, I think I've burnt myself out completing my OnStage Display samples! However I have done this one (for someone very precious) and it just suits the latest Just Add Ink Challenge #353 - Just Add Critters!

I know this card looks similar to my last one, strangely also for Just Add Ink, but I so love the Large Letters I find I'm using them for everything - not just stamping cards! Anyway, this 'someone special' requested 'something cute' for her birthday card and since we both have Golden Retrievers I couldn't think of anything much cuter than adorable Bella from the Bella & Friends stamp set. This card was so quick to make! I used the retired stripes mask to create the checker background, sponging the mask both ways, and then it was just a matter of cutting the letters and colouring in Bella - so easy! And, as much I don't love pink I know my 'someone special' does and I know she'll find this card adorable too!
