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

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.

We are an international group of like minded papercrafters that love creating with Stampin Up! products and participate in a blog hop on the first & third Monday each month, focusing on one set each hop.
This allows us to share a huge variety of styles and projects with just one stamp set and provides loads of inspiration.

I really love combining this set with "Tropical Chic" but for this one I've used only the images and sentiment from the Flamingo set, but l did add some of the Tropical Escape 6x6 dsp stack.
My go to colours are Flirty Flamingo-Granny Apple Green-Basic Black-Whisper White & and a hint of Gold Shimmer.

Next on the hop is the lovely Lou Kitzelman and her inspiring project!
