Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #10

Hi All,

I'm so excited I got the time to participate in another Makeesha Challenge so soon. This weeks challenge is an inspiration challenge. Below is the image to be inspired by

I went with the colours and clean lines as my inspiration. I used Basic Grey, Basic Black, Taken with Teal, So Saffron, Whisper White and some hemp twine to tie in the small hint of a brown colour I could see. I just purchased 'Party Hearty' and really wanted to use it so I went with a masculine birthday card using the colours. Here is what I came up with...

Stamp Set: Party Hearty
Ink: Basic Black, Taken with Teal Marker, So Saffron Marker
Cardstock: Taken with Teal, So Saffron, Basic Grey, Basic Black, Whisper White, Patterns II DSP pack
Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, Hemp Twine, 1'3/8 1'1/2 inch square punches, 3/4' circle punch, Scallop Punch, Black Brads

This weekend I'm off on a Team Weekend Away to Vision Valley with The Inklings Demonstrator group. I'm so excited to just have a weekend of stamping it's just what I need. Can't wait to show you heaps of creations and stories when I get back!

Happy Stampin'

Inkspirations Sketch Challenge 10

Hi All,

It feels like ageeeeeeeeeeees since I have participated in one of Makeesha's Challenges and I really enjoyed it! This weeks challenge was a Sketch Challenge to make a card based on the following Sketch.

Karl's mum has been really sick lately and hasn't been able to see Riley since she was born because of it and it has really been getting her down so I decided to make her a Get Well Soon card to cheer her up. I changed the sketch up a little and used a rectangle instead of the circle cos I really wanted to use the flower image from Friends 24-7. Here's the final product I really hope that she likes the card and it cheers her up because I had alot of fun making it.

Stamp Sets: Friends 24-7, Thoughts & Prayers
Cardstock: Not Quiet Navy, Watercolour Paper, Bella Bleu DSP
Ink: Not Quiet Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Old Olive, Basic Grey, Black Stazon
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Very Vanilla grosgrain Ribbon, Mini Glue Dots, Pretties Kit (Cream half back pearls), Scallop Egde Punch

Thanks for Looking,

Dani :)

Pocket full of thanks

Hi All,

I made this card ages ago for a swap card and with the craziness of the last few months I didn't get to send any of them or photograph them. It's using a really cute and simple set "Pocket Silhouettes." I think this set is so versatile and has lots of different uses. This card is very simple but just shows how elegant the set can be. I also am in love with this colour combo how pretty is it???

Stamp Set: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Sage Shadow
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Mat Pack, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Choc Chip Grosgrain Ribbon, Glue Dots

Happy Stamping

Garden Daisy's

When I saw the new IB&C I was so excited that we were getting Upsy Daisy. I had seen it used on so many american demonstrators blogs looking so stunning that I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. In the following card I have used my markers to ink up the image and added dazzling diamonds on the flowers to really give it a pop!

Stamp Set: Upsy Daisy
Cardstock: Garden Green, Rose Red, Regal Rose Prints DSP
Ink: Garden Green, Rose Red, Regal Rose Markers
Accessories: Word Window Punch, Mat Pack, Dazzling Diamonds, Two Way Glue Pen, White Taffeta Ribbon

Also because I'm a really proud mum I wanted to share another photo for you of my gorgeous little girl. And for anyone who knows me well... YES She's wearing PINK! I'm not a big pink person so the fact she has pink on is a big deal. Needless to say I didn't buy it lol (Thanks Carol)

Thanks for looking,
Have a great day

Dani :)
