Inkspirational #177 - Word Prompt

Hi there everyone! It's the last challenge for the year over at Inkspirational and this fortnight we want you to CASE your favourite card from 2018 or one from another Designer.

I decided to CASE this beautiful card from my teamie at Inkspirational  - Marina

Here is her card -

This is my CASE -
I started by creating a mask using a circle die and masking paper. I stamped my Paper Artsy flowers randomly using my MISTI. I used Zig glitter pens to colour them in and gave them a little extra bling by using a gold and white gel pen.
I used a black pen to create the border to define the circle of flowers.

I die cut my sentiment twice, layered it, then adhered it to my card front.

Very easy, actually! I hope to see you over at Inkspirational!

I would also like to enter my card over at the following challenges -

Allsorts Challenge - Thanks a Bunch (thank you or florals as the focal)

R is for RUDE Christmas

Hi there everyone. I created a VERY rude Christmas card that I wasn't going to blog (for obvious reasons) but I really couldn't help it when I saw the challenge over at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.

If you get offended by 'rude words' please exit now :)

I created this card using my new Stamping Bella Oddballs stamps. I used some letter stamps to create the rude part of my sentiment. I fussy cut the images out and popped them up for dimension.

I wasn't really expecting to blog this so the photo isn't the best... I coloured Mr and Missus with watercolour pencils then covered them with a glitter pen.

Thanks for popping in today and I hope you have had a giggle at my card :)

Inkspirational #176

Hello! It's challenge time over at Inkspirational. For this fortnight we have a photo to help you. I took inspiration from the wine theme.

This is a new stamp set for me - Art Impressions "Wine Divas". I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour in the image. I haven't used these for a while and need to start practising again. I created the polka dots with a white gel pen. 

Here is the photo -

As you can see there is HEAPS to choose from. There are candles, feathers, fruit and cheese, wine glasses, oils. There are beautiful colours - gold, blue, green, red. Choose whatever you like!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges -

Crafty Sentiments - Celebrate

See you over at Inkspirational!

Challenge me a Christmas Card with Michelle Lupton

Hi everyone! Once again I was asked by the lovely Michelle Lupton to join in on her annual Christmas Challenge. I had to challenge Michelle to create a card using a particular theme/colour/technique etc. 

I decided to 'make' Michelle create a light up card! You can find her's over on her blog - I can't wait to see it!

Here is my card - it was very simple to create this card. I used the dies for the scene to create windows that light up. I embossed the sentiment.

The sentiment, when pressed, activates the lights :)

This is a smaller sized card than I am used to making but I have not long purchased an envelope maker board thingo. which I will break out of the packaging for this card.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges -

Thanks for popping in today and don't forget to visit Michelle!

Once again, I used one of my leftover pieces that I had created with Brusho and a Stencil and simply embossed a sentiment right on top.

Easy peasy! Okay, I hope to see you over at the challenge blog with your embossed (wet or dry) CAS creations!

Inkspirational #175

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge over at Inkspirational. I've been missing in action for the last couple of challenges but now I am back on track and getting organised! 

Our wonderful Carol has an awesome theme for this challenge -

Here is my card -

I had some leftover backgrounds while creating with stencils so this was a pretty quick and easy card to make. I used the Brusho and Stencil technique (which you can see on youtube HERE if you are interested)

I mounted the panel on some silver mirror card and die cut my sentiment from the same card. Very easy and perfect for when you are creating lots of Christmas cards :)

I hope to see you over at the challenge blog with your Christmas creations xx
