INKspired Blog Hop #INK021 - Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Jonathan!

 Welcome back bloggers!

You are tuning in again for another edition of the INKspired Blog hop. 
This time you would have hopped in from Barbara Williams :) 
I am sure once again she has created something wonderful!

Sketch #INK021

So my handsome Nephew Jonathan is turning 8 today!
I don't do Boy themed cards all too often so this gave me the chance to test out the new No Bones About It Stamp set!

Can I just say I am a huge fan! It's such a fun stamp set with endless combinations!

The colours used were Sahara Sand, Cucumber Crush and Basic Black... Not a colour combo that I am used to either but I am liking it! LOTS!!

The Stamp-a-ma-jig was an essential tool for this card to get a crisp colour with the photopolymer... I would have be lost without it!

The bones stamp was embossed in white to create a boney texture :) 
and it made it look like an X-Ray tag over the top of the Dinosaur... Loving it!

I used the Cherry on top DSP paper stack for the background layer.
This DSP paper stack is so versatile... So far since I bought it I have had it out for every project I have done recently!

I had fun making this card... I always struggle to create a nice 'Boy' card... but having 3 boys in the house now I think I will need to start thinking of more for the near future!!

 I wish my (not so little) Nephew Jonathan has a wonderful birthday and we are happy this year you are back in Sydney with your family to celebrate it with us! We have missed too many already!

Super excited for you all as next up is the very talented and creative Louise Sharp! My beautiful bestie!!

Until next time xx

INKspired Blog hop #20 - Butterflies

Happy Birthday Lou Lou!!

Hi Bloggers

Welcome back to the 20th Anniversary INKspired blog hop!!

You would have just hopped in from Barbara Williams and I am certain it was a very awesome card!

Here is this week's sketch #INK020 
(I am loving this sketch!)

So the pressure is on for an extra special card being the 20th blog hop and all! 
The sketch this week I was very excited about as it suits a trifold card creation...YAY! I have done a trifold card before and to this day it is still a very popular card on Pinterest :)

My Bestie Lou Lou aka Louise Sharp celebrated her birthday at the end of June and circumstances happened where I couldn't access my craftroom to create a card :( and there was no way I was buying a card to give her... Come on it's The Louise Sharp SU Queen!! Lol.

So it was mission clean out craftroom!
Create a card fitting for Lou Lou :)
Blog it...
all with the craziness of school holidays activities!!!

Here is my creation!

I think Lou Lou will love it?!? She better lol!!

I have had the Butterflies Thinlits Dies for a while now but never used them!! It took a few goes to get it right so it cuts first go but I have got the technique right now
You need to have your cardstock down, grease paper, the framelit, then another piece of scrap cardstock on top and VoilĂ !!

Next up is the very talented Lisa Eaton! I am sure her creation this week is stunning!

Until next time xo


P.S Everyone likes free stuff!! Comment on all blogs in this hop and you will go in the draw to win the Pretty Thankful stamp set :)
