Welcome to the Creative Inkers Team Blog Hop! Thank you for joining us. We are saying farewell to our faves from the 2014 – 2015 Annual Catalogue. These products are sadly on our retiring list but we’re here to inspire you to keep creating with these products if you’ve got them in your stash 🙂
If this is your first stop or if you’ve come from the talented Delys, make sure you click on either the ‘Next’ or ‘Back’ buttons below to hop around and check out everyone’s blogs. There’s also a list at the bottom in case you get lost. Now, sit back and enjoy all the amazing projects we have to offer!
My first project features a sentiment from the Chalk Talk stamp set as the focal image…
I used the Work of Art stamp set to create a collage background. The colour choice was inspired by the current Around the World Stampin’ Challenge – AW40
Here’s a look at the inside of the card…
There’s a little pocket on the left of the card which holds a bookmark. I used the same stamps to create the collage background. The sentiment is also from the same set.
The card & bookmark was made with a 1/2 sheet of A4 carstock and divided into 3 equal panels. I cut off one of the panels leaving about 1 1/2″ to create the pocket. The left over is used to create the bookmark. Easy peasy & nothing’s wasted 🙂
My second project features the Tape It & Yippee-Skippee stamp sets…
I used the lined flower image from Mum’s Love and the splatter image is from Gorgeous Grunge. I was very relieved when I found out Gorgeous Grunge will be carried over to the new catalogue!
Now, I can’t do a blog hop without including an interactive card, which I absolutely love making! The shaker portion was made using the also retiring Sweet Treat Cups. Here’s a closer look at it…
Don’t you think it’s cute?! I’m going to miss those 2013 – 2015 In-Colour Sequins too
My final project is a 3D item featuring another sentiment from the Chalk Talk set. I designed this gift box to fit one of our embellishments box & a 3″ x 3″ note card & envelope, perfect as a little gift for any occasion. Here’s what my gift box looks like…
I decided to keep my box & belly band clean with no stamping. I wanted the sentiment to be the focal piece and the cute curly embellishments to draw attention as well. Here’s a close up of them…
I learnt this awesome technique at Convention from the very talented Petra Tailor. I was so impressed with her technique that I knew I had to try it on a project as soon as I got back! I think it adds a cuteness factor to the project, don’t you?
Well, I think I’ve kept you for long enough. Thank you for joining me today & I hope my projects has inspired you.
