Social Stamping...War & Peace!

Evening everyone!

This week at Social Stamping Kelly has set the theme of "WAR & PEACE"...Very appropriate for Anzac day and the current world situation!

It was definitely a very different dawn service this morning, but lovely to see so many of our neighbours paying respects to those that have given their lives, so that we can live ours.
Thank you to all of you and to those currently in the front line protecting and saving lives...You are and always will be our heroes!

With much of the world staying home, it really is a time of peace and calm for many. So l have created a "Peace" themed project using some of  the beautiful "Ornate Style" products and the Daisy Lane punch.

Next up on the hop is the lovely Leonie I'm sure she will have something fabulous to share!

Just Add Ink #502... Sketch!

Happy Friday Friends!

Its challenge time again over at Just Add Ink  and Tina has given us this lovely clean sketch to create with.
As l had the lovely "Honey Bee" bundle out on my desk, l decided it would work really well with the sketch elements and combined it with the "Stitched So Sweetly" dies...Clean and simple, but l really like it!

Don't forget to pop over to the challenge blog for loads of lovely design team inspiration.

Colour INKspiration #76


The Colour INKspiration team are sharing a brand new colour combination. Lots of lovely Autumn toned projects to see.

I have inked up the gorgeous "Breathtaking Bouquet" background stamp and coloured it with Stampin Blends and added lots of Wink of Stella sparkle!...Hard to see that in the pics though.
I love that this huge background stamp can be fussy cut to minimize, but still be really effective!

You can click on the Colour INKspiration link above to be redirected to our Facebook page, where you can request to join and play along each fortnight with all of the gorgeous colour inspiration.

Social Stamping....Friend!

Hello lovely friends!

We are hopping over at Social Stamping and this week Kelly has set the theme of "FRIEND" and I am so appreciative of being able to share through this group with many friends.
Kelly and l are on a number of design teams together and when she kindly offered to blog host, l was thrilled to be asked and to be able to share with you all this fabulous concept!...It's keeping us connected, creating and sharing! Which in these uncertain times is such a blessing and something to look forward to each week.

For my "Friend" project, l have used the very sweet "Honey Bee" bundle in Blushing Bride for a somewhat different look at these products!

Next up on the hop is the lovely Mandy Depiazzi

Todays share is our new Just Add Ink Inspiration challenge. Jackie has given us this lovely colourful pic to inspire our projects.

Sweet and simple and an easy way to use a large background image.
I was inspired by the bright pops of colour, nestled in greenery!

The rest of the design team have created some great projects, so pop over to the challenge blog to see all of that fabulous inspo!

Social Stamping...Rainbows!

Happy Easter to you all!

This weeks Social Stamping theme is "Rainbows"  The perfect choice for adding some colourful fun in our current times and also in keeping with the current trend of sharing rainbows everywhere!

Our little cherubs have the biggest buckets of chalk and have been drawing up a storm of colour, up and down their footpaths/driveways. Such a lovely idea, keeps them occupied and brings so many smiles too!

I haven't created a traditional rainbow, but more a swatch of rainbow colours...But they still made me smile!
My colour choices are Highland Heather-Bermuda Bay-Granny Apple Green-Mango melody-Flirty Flamingo....This combination is 100% a fave for creating bright happy cards.
The images are from Label Me Bold & Thoughtful Blooms.

You can find the full list of participating blogs Here!

Now you are off to see the fabulous "Rainbow" creation from Siobhan


Happy Easter, Happy Hopping & Thanks for stopping by!

Just Add Ink #500...Blog Hop!

Happy Easter everyone!

We have a fabulous milestone to celebrate at Just Add Ink this week, we have reached our 500th challenge.
This is such a wonderful achievement from all of our design team members, past and present and not to mention all of our lovely challenge participants over the last 10yrs. Without you, we wouldn't have a challenge to create for.

I am so grateful to have been a part of this team as a design team member since March 2011 and a challenge participant prior to that for some time...It has given me so many treasured friends and beautiful friendships, as well as the perfect creative outlet!

Jan has set the challenge criteria for this week and as long as our projects contain a die cut word, we met the challenge brief! This is fun and simple and can be for any occasion!

I have used the super cute Lovely Ladybug bundle from SAB for my project, adding layers, texture and brightly coloured bugs!

If you are happily hopping, you would have landed here from my lovely friend Tina and her great project!

Next up is the creative and talented Jo and her lovely project!

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Hopping!

Colour INKspirations #75

Hello Friends!

It is time for another Colour INKspiration challenge and this one is all about bright and bold! The lovely Cathy has given us this pretty colour palette to create with and l absolutely love it.

I have used another neglected stamp set "Beautiful Friendship" and really enjoyed inking it up in first & second ink generations to create a softer version of the colours.
The  scalloped diecut is from the lovely new Ornate Style dies...So pretty!
