Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop February



Welcome to the Ink and Inspiration Blog Hop for February, this month's theme is "Technique Savvy", so I hope you are ready for 
lot's of great inspiration.

Whether you are starting here or hopped from another blog you are currently visiting Tracy Bish from Australia. I hope you enjoy my card. 


The Technique for this card is "Faux Metal". And is so easy to create. I have used the "Wish For It All" bundle and die cut 3 candles in Whisper White Thick card.


This FUN bundle "Wish For It All" can be found in the Annual Catalogue on page 65.


Ink the candle die cuts with Versamark ink, and emboss with Silver Embossing Powder. I have done this twice to create a thicker layer. To create the candle flame a different colour I have inked the candle flame again with Versamark ink and sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder, heat and melt powder.


The card base is Soft Suede, but I really wanted to break up the colour, so the first matting I have Heat Embossed the edges with Copper Embossing Folder, which gives a great effect and also brings in the whole card.

Wanting to create a special card, with plenty of detail, but also keeping a simple design. Nothing says elegant like the Subtle 3D folder, so I ran it through the Bigshot machine, with a shim ( scrap piece of card ) in the centre. This embosses the card, but not where the shim was sitting. Not sure how well that shows up in the photos's but looks very pretty.Lastly I have embossed the sentiment with Copper Embossing Powder.


I hope you have enjoyed today's card, I would love if you could leave me a comment, for lots more inspiration, please click on the links below, and check out what other techniques you can try!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Stampin Up " So Sentimental " and " Best Dressed " Bundle Card!

Hello and Welcome,

Its CASE the Catalogue day again, and I have chosen a card, that I will admit I didn't notice the first few times of looking through the catalogue. It's a hidden gem on page 21, admit it you hadn't noticed it either!!!!




I love the pop of Designer Series Paper in the background, the Stitched So Sweetly dies has a fun array of nesting shape dies, perfect for the sentiments in the bundle. And that lace that has been coloured with the Stampin Blends to jazz it up and tie it all together!




If you have been following me for a little while, you may know I love the stitched dies, and these one are amazing, and I can't recommend them enough. So much detail with very little effort.

Pet Sympathy Card using Stampin Up's " Happy Tails " Stamp Set!

Hello and Welcome,

Today's card is a Pet Sympathy, and if your like me, our pets are definately part of the family. And so sometimes just like sympathy cards are needed, so are pet sympathy cards.





I love that this card can be changed out for a cat, using the Cat Punch, colours can be changed too.And it is such a thoughtful card to anyone who loses a pet family member.



Emboss Resist is the technique used on the background piece, and I will admit it looks so much prettier in person. I hope you will give this technique a go.

Lets Get Hopping 28

No photo description available.

Hello and Welcome to another Blog Hop with the "Let's Get Hopping" group. Whether you have hopped here from Alicia's blog, or you are starting your journey here, I am so happy to have you visit.
The theme this month is "Shaker Cards"!



Today's card is using a Host set from the Mini Catalogue called "Make A Splash" This stamp set can be earned for FREE with a $250 order or by having a Party with sales of $250.




I love this stamp set, and I knew it would be perfect as a Shaker card, especially with these blue beads to give the look of bubbles in the water.


This shaker card was designed to be a See - Through Shaker card, that opens up to a fish bowl inside.



To create card, 
1. Stamp fish bowl onto Balmy Blue matting card, and foam piece, and Whisper White card, fussy cut  all images, including the middle of the bowl. 
2. Layer matting over Thick Whisper White card base, trace image with a pencil, and fussy cut. 
3. Emboss Balmy Blue layer with Mosaic 3D folder.
4. Stamp 3 fish with Pumpkin Pie ink, fussy cutting these images.
5. Stamp 4 reeds with Call Me Clover ink, fussy cutting these images, and glue two together, so both sides cam be shown through the fishbowl.




 6. Adhere with Tear N Tape one Window Sheet to top of card base, and one to the back of the Balmy Blue matting.
7. Attach two fish to strips of window sheet, adhere to the back of matting, and reeds to the base of the fishbowl as well.




 8.Glue foam piece to the back of Balmy Blue matting.
9.Place Foam Adhesive Strips around  the edge of the matting, and fishbowl, add beads, and adhere the second window sheet over the top.
10.Adhere matting to card base. 

11. Stamp reeds with Call Me Clover ink to the blue fishbowl, that was fussy cut earlier, glue in the 3rd fish. This piece will also be glued to the inside of the card.
12. Stamp sentiment with Pumpkin Pie ink, onto Whisper White card, glue to Call Me Clover card, and adhere to card.
