Christmas in August and a new arrival.



Hello,
We're back at Creative Inspirations this week after our summer break and our new challenge for this fortnight is 

CHRISTMAS IN AUGUST

For my card, i have used my newest House Mouse stamp. Due to recent events, i haven't really been in the crafting mood so i dont have much inspiration and im not really getting much done due to a new arrival { see below}, so my HM365 challenge is on hold.

I coloured the image with promarkers and only used one paper for this card from my Lemoncraft Christmas greetings papers.
I finished with a sentiment from craftwork cards and by adding some glossy accents to my berries.

Now, as i was saying earlier in my post , we have a new arrival.
Meet George.


He's only been here a week and is taking up most of our time { and biting plenty} so im having a bit of a rest from crafting.

Altenew: 1 card 3 ways


Hello,
Today i have some small 5x5 cards to share using the Vintage flowers stamp set by Altenew.
All 3 cards are the same but in different colour ways.


Firstly, i have this turquoise version. This came out really nice and bold. The text stamp is from Crafters companion and printed in Memento London Fog ink.
I stamped the two main images and the leaves 3 times then added a craftwork cards text banner.


For my second card i was inspired by the colours at the Olympic opening ceremony in Rio so i decided to use oranges, yellows, greens and pink. I used the same flower images for each card and the same leaves. This time i added some pink flower sequins and a different text banner.


My last card used this months Altenew challenge picture for inspiration.
I kept to Pink,black and grey for this card. Again, the only thing different is the text banner.


Id like to enter my final card into this months challenge.
I hope you like my Multi-coloured notecards.

Black and Pink: Altenew


Hello,
Today i have a card to share that i have made for this months Altenew Photo/colour inspiration challenge. 
I created this 6x6 design using the Peony Bouquet stamp set.
I created a background pattern using the main image, the bud and some leaves which came from my vintage flowers set.
I stamped the design using 3 pink tones and a grey and black for the leaves.


I added a strip of vellum and stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful day set. I also stamped one of the peonys and cut it out before sticking it just over the edge of the vellum.

Sad news

Hi,
I just wanted to let everyone know that I won't be blogging much from today.
On Saturday, my lovely border collie Digby passed away suddenly and unexpectedly at just 7 years old.
Thank you for all the comments left on previous posts over the last few days. I'm not really up to date with things, so I might not be commenting for a while.

Hello,
This image came from CD2 of the cd rom. I printed the topper sheet and its paper. This image is one of the slightly smaller sizes. I added some fancy ribbon and its matching sentiment to finish.
