Mango Melody-Call Me Clover-Bashful Blue-Daffodil Delight-Mint Macaron-Highland Heather and Old Olive for the leaves.

Stamp Review Crew...A little Wild!

 Stamp Review Crew

Afternoon everyone!  It's time for another Stamp Review Crew blog hop. For this one we are showcasing the super cute and versatile "A Little Wild" stamp bundle.
I really love this set, it's great for many occasions and as you can see if you complete the hop, it can be used for so many different projects!

For my project this week, l have combined the cute lion image with some Tropical Chic dsp and altered the greeting from the "Just Because" hostess set to create a fun Valentines card for the man!

It's not that easy to see, but the Lion is popped up on a wobbler (not SU), but these are such a cute way to make your cards interactive.

If you are happily hopping you would have arrived here from the fun project and blog of  Dawn Tidd, but if not, you can click on the "NEXT" banner below to complete the hop loop and see all of the fabulous projects from the crew!

Just Add Ink #442...Sketch!

Happy Friday crafters! 

We have another great challenge happening over at Just Add Ink  and this week Kim has challenged us all to create a project using this lovely sketch!
I always enjoy a good sketch challenge, as it allows lots of freedom to use whatever l like product wise, but gives me a great starting point.

For my project this week l have combined the sketch with the lovely new "Wonderful Romance" bundle and teamed it up with lots of Mossy Meadow and a smidge of Mango Melody!
I've used Stampin Blends for colouring and another fave, the Corrugated Dynamic Impressions Embossing Folder...Still available on the carry over list and l've also added some of the sweet "Butterfly Elements" from the SAB freebies!

Just Add Ink #441...Inspiration!

Photo Credit:

This week over at Just Add Ink we have a super cute Inspiration challenge happening suggested by Jo.
I absolutely loved the colours in this one, so decided to ink up and diecut some of the sweet Tea Together and Tea Time Framelits both currently available from Stampin Up! And the best part is, if you purchase $180 in products, you can get the framelits for free...Definitely a win, win! Who doesn't love freebies!

My go to colours were Mint Macaron for the teapot and l used colouring pencils (non SU) to shade, then channeling my inner Magpie, l added lots of sparkly dots with gold glimmer paper.
I also used standard colouring pencils and the baby oil technique to colour the flowers, then popped them all up on an embossed base created with the lovely new embossing folder "Dot to Dot".

Just Add Ink #440...Blog Hop!

 Just Add Ink

Happy 2019 everyone, I hope it's a fabulous year of good health, loads of happy and much crafty goodness!

Well, it's time to kick off the Just Add Ink year! As we always do, we have team "Blog Hop" and our theme is "Something New".
This can be absolutely anything that you have acquired, but have not yet used!

With the release of the brand new Stampin Up! Occasions & Sale a Bration catalogues, l have a lovely little stash of new goodies, so deciding what to use was fun!

I have gone with the super cute, stand alone stamp set called "Flowering Desert" and combined it with some softer colours (Blushing Bride-Flirty flamingo-Mint Macaron-Old Olive & silver) to create a card with lots of prickly pretties!
I added some spiky detail to the feature cactus with a black fine liner.
