Friday, 27 September 2019


Welcome to the Ink It! Stamp It Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Amy Koenders from the USA. If you are starting here please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the inspiration projects the team has to share.
The theme for this hop is "Inspired by Home Décor" and as I looked around my home for inspiration I settled upon this little corner.  I've used the colours to inspire me - Night of Navy, Whisper White, Granny Apple Green and Silver.
All these pieces have special memories, the potted orchid my Mother gave me for a birthday, the framed print is from a friend after a trip to Europe, the silver napkin ring belonged to my Nana and the thimble was a gift from my landlady/flatmate in London - so many fond memories in one spot!

I have used the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set and stamped the flowers randomly using Night of Navy ink pad, then I added the leaves in Granny Apple Green.

Happy is die cut in Silver Glimmer Paper using the Well Written Framelits Dies and Birthday is from the co-ordinating stamp set - Well Said. I added a swirl of Silver Metallic Thread and quite a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels. I needed a 50th birthday card too and it was easy just to add that to the card!

Thanks for joining me today! Remember to keep hopping for more inspiration. Up next is Fiona Bradley in Australia - I look forward to seeing her project.

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Design Team Blog Hop. You may have arrived here from my lovely and talented friend Sarah Fleming from the USA. If you are starting here please see the complete list at the bottom of this post which will guide you through all the inspirational projects the team has to share.
The theme for this hop is "The Great Outdoors" and  I thought the Sailing Home Stamp Set and co-ordinating Smooth Sailing Dies were perfect for this!
The Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper is full of nautical themed images and makes a perfect background for my cards. I've layered up the lighthouse stamped in Night of Navy, an anchor in Real Red and a ship's wheel die cut in Sahara Sand onto a circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.
Happy Birthday is from the Well Said Stamp Set and has been white embossed onto Basic Black Cardstock.
To tie in the red I added some Cherry Cobbler rhinestones from the Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The Night of Navy rhinestones are also from there too!
All the products I've used are from Stampin' Up! and can be purchased directly from my On-Line Shop by clicking the pictures below.
Thanks for visiting today and be sure to hop all the way around to see the gorgeous creations my fellow team members have created.

Hello and welcome to September's Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop. This month I am featuring the gorgeous Garden Lane Designer Series Paper and the Band Together Bundle - we are showcasing a variety of Designer Series Papers and Bundles to inspire and excite you!
The simple yet elegant Band Together Stamp Set co-ordinates perfectly with the  lacy swirls in the Detailed Bands Dies, and I love how they look with the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.
The new In Color, Rococo Rose looks so pretty with the greens in the Garden Lane DSP. I gold embossed the flower and water coloured it with Rococo Rose and Mossy Meadow Inks.
On this card, the filigree band creates a stunning frame for the gold embossed sentiment. Both cards are on Crumb Cake bases with Linen Thread bows. This paper has a lovely selection of patterns and styles. 
Here are some more cards I created using this lovely combination.
I used the filigree band as a mask with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and Pool Party ink to create the patterned background. The leaves have been die cut in the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.
I also embossed the background on these cards with the Shimmery White Embossing Paste, layered Vellum leaves, White Embossed Flowers and Leaves and water coloured them with Purple Posy and Pool Party Ink. The Band Together Bundle and Garden Lane Designer Series Paper work together perfectly to create such a diverse range of projects.
Please continue on the hop for more inspiration and fabulous projects from the Artisan Design Team, starting with the lovely Ashley Van Camp - just click on the link below!
Here's a little look at the gorgeous projects created by the Team.
