With Sympathy - Kylie's International Blog Highlights

Jo's Stamping Spot - Kylie's International Blog Highlights

The card I have for you today is one I thankfully don't have to make very often *cross fingers/touch wood*. I'm joining in with Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights for October with a card for Change of Life circumstances. You can see the gallery of cards on Kylie's blog HERE and even throw me a vote if you really like my card, but please do spend 5 minutes and vote for 5 cards. All entries are very worthy of your vote.

Flurry of Wishes Christmas Set

I'm not usually one to do Christmas Cards but for a recent Team meeting we were challenged to do some to 'show and tell'. So I went one step further and challenged myself to stick to one stamp set and to use every stamp in that set! Something I had never done before lol. I chose to use Flurry of Wishes as it one of a few Christmas sets that is still in the current Annual Catalogue. Here is the set of cards I made, trying to use different colours but similar techniques on each...

Just Add Ink #376 - Just Add 'D"

I have a new card for you today for the latest Just Add Ink Challenge #376 - my last as a Guest Designer! Thankfully though I'm pleased to say that they have asked me, and all the other current, wonderful guest designers, to stay on the Design Team permanently! I'm so excited as they are such a friendly and talented group of ladies! Anyways, for this week's challenge we were asked to Just Add 'D' and of course there were many possibilities!

Father's Day 2017

I just wanted to pop in today to share this card that I made my gorgeous Dad. It was his birthday yesterday and it will be Father's Day in Australia this Sunday so I wanted to combine a card for him. Although it's a retired set I knew I wanted to use the Nailed It set as he is such a handy man and to this day he is my go-to guy whenever I need advice.

Just Add Ink #370 - Sketch Challenge

Today's card is kind of special, I've been asked to be a guest designer over at the wonderful challenge site Just Add Ink! Such a thrill, not to mention the company I'm keeping with the other girls who were chosen (and who are already there) - wowsers! So this week it is a sketch challenge, check out the great design we had to work with!

Global Design Project 092 - Case the Designer

It's been ages since I've done a challenge card for the Global Design Project but I couldn't pass up CASEing the very talented Steffi. This week it's a CASE the designer week and I've always adored Steffi's creations and beautiful colouring.

Colour INKspiration #CI11 & CASEing the Catty #CTC132

Finally another new card! I've been a little under the weather and completely lost any interest in making anything but I'm back having a crack at a new challenge (or two)! This card started out as just for CASEing the Catty, a challenge group on Facebook, but somehow I must have had the colours in my head for the latest Colour INKspiration challenge and went with that as well!

Just Add Ink #359 - Inspiration

Another card, who'd have thought it! Once I finished off my card for Colour INKspiration I had a vision of this card - and this one I like! This one is for the latest Just Add Ink Inspiration Challenge #359, a challenge I sadly haven't had time to enter in a while...

Colour INKspiration #CI09 - Colour Challenge

Long time no see! It's definitely been a while! Trying to get back into the creative swing after being overseas for two weeks and for the last week just nothing would come out. But finally I have something to share, a new card for the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge!

Updated Wood Mount Refill Cases

A wee little post today. Just back from two weeks on holidays and having a lazy day. I've added some new Wood Mount Refill Case inserts that were requested and the new In Colors. I have also added a blank insert that you can colour in and write your own colours on.

All these inserts have been added to my original post HERE.

I hope to be back before the end of the week with some new cards but in the meantime, enjoy!

Colour INKspiration #CI07 - Colour Challenge

Today I'm doing a stint at Guest Designer for the latest Colour INKspiration Challenge! Colour INKspiration is a Facebook group where fun colour challenges are posted every second and fourth Wednesday of each month (plenty of time to be creative)!

Check out those gorgeous colours for this challenge! The colours are Mint Macaron, Daffodil Delight, Pink Pirouette and Tip Top Taupe! Sadly we'll be saying goodbye to Mint Macaron and Tip Top Taupe when the new annual catalogue gets release on the 1st June *sad face*...

These colours screamed flowers and Easter to me but since I don't actually have any Easter-related stamps I went with flowers and my set of the moment, the lovely Special Reason and Stylish Stems Framelits. I matched this with the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder and one of my all time faves, Gorgeous Grunge, to create this bouquet-looking inspired card. The Thank You sentiment is from the Oh Happy Day stamp set that comes with the Oh Happy Day card kit and I think it just suits the grungy look perfectly!

Well, I hope you love or at least like my creation *lol*. It's been my very first blog hop so I'm glad you could drop by. You can continue the hop to the extremely talented Denita's blog here...

If you'd love to join in the fun of Colour INKspiration just head on over to the Facebook group and request to join. You'll see lots of lovely creations there too!
