Inkspirational #157

Hi All

We have our Designer's challenge today. This time it is the amazingly talented and creative Carol's choice and she went with:


I have no fairy, unicorn etc stamps so had to turn to my trusty thesaurus for a helping hand! And in there I found 'mythical' described as 'Imagination'. I knew I had a sentiment stamp that fitted this (a pressie from my dear friend and teamie Nonni). So went with this:

A quick and easy all stamping card-my fav!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Mimi. Check out her amazing blog here and then go over to Inkspirational and see what the DT have created to inspire you.

Lips and Love!

Happy Monday!

Still stuck at home not feeling so good so what better way to spend my time than to have a little crafty play.

Those that follow me know I love to make one layer cards but also know I don't so stencils or sponging! But today I have had had a play at trying both of these! I got a few stencils as a  lovely pressie from crafty buddy Sarah. She sells here-check them out, they are fab!

Here is what I made using her fun 'lip' stencils.

I just matched it up with a sentiment from The Ton Stamps

I was inspired to make this by the following challenges:

Less is More-one layer stencils

Calling All Sistahs Challenge #11

Hi All

I am here with our monthly Calling All Sistahs Encouragement challenge from CAS-ual Fridays. Our little bunch of Sistahs are all about raising awareness for Breast Cancer and would love you to join our monthly challenge.

 What do we mean by an 'Encouragement' card? Well anything that would brighten someone's day. I am sure you have plenty of ideas of how to do this and make cards like this every time you sit down you craft. So why not share them with us?

We have a photo and some colours to inspire you. Use either the photo or the colours-you don't need to use both but can if you want.

Here is my card:

And our inspiration:

I went mainly with the colours but added a little flower as a hint to the photo!

The sentiment is from Word Ribbon and the background is Heart to Heart. I heat embossed the heart stamp and then did some water colouring using all the colours in our inspiration. I die cut the flower from the same water colouring sheet. 

Here is how you play along:

1. Make a card that will brighten someone's day inspired by the photo or colours or both.

2. Link up here by 12am EST on the 13th
3. Share with your friends and followers so we can get the word out about our challenge.

One person will win a $25 gift code to use on anything in the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps store.  All products are welcome, but if you use CAS-ual Fridays stamps or dies on your card, Michele will DOUBLE your prize!!!

My fellow Sistahs have all made amazing cards-check them out here and then get inky!

Make someone happy today with a very special card from you!

Can't wait to see your cards!

Enjoy xx

Hi All

Popping in with a quick card to say 'hello'

I was inspired by the sketch at Where Creativity Meets c9 and the pink colours at Paper Players.

This fab die is from Concord and 9th and the stripes are from Winnie and Walter. Again no big misti so had to eyeball these!

Caught A Bug?

Hi There

I wouldn't normally post twice in a day but I am at home after catching my Husband's bug! He has been coughing and sneezing for a week now. I was feeling pretty pleased with myself for not catching it but you guessed it...I have!

My card today was inspired by the 'Bug' challenge at CASology.
I had this idea in my head since I saw the challenge and today I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and off I went creating this:

Most of these stamps are from Paper Smooches. I stamped the tissue box and tissue on previously water coloured card. Fussy cut them out. I used my Visible Image snowflake stamp to represent my 'sneeze'!! The tissue box and tissue are both popped up on foam pads for dimension.

I deliberately used bright and cheerful colours as that is what I think we need when feeling a bit under the weather!!

Hope your day is going well x
