Inkspirational Mood Board


Our final Inkspirational challenge of 2023 is to be inspired by this moodboard:

For my DT card, I stamped and embossed a firework sky and designed and cut a sentiment on a Silhouette digital cutter.

I hope you'll go along to Inkspirational and see what the rest of the DT have made and join in the challenge.

Winter Hamlet


In 2016 I made a little Christmas village  which I have got out every year and even added some extra buildings and trees, This year I decided to make a new settlement for my mantlepiece. The buildings are bigger than the village but there are only three of them. I used Silhouette digital cutting files and just changed the colours I chose. They are a little rickety in places but, hopefully, that adds to the charm!

I Ran Out of Christmas Cards!


I ran out of Christmas cards and I needed one quick!  Luckily I'd previously printed and cut out this digi penguin and the patterned papers were hanging around on my desk. So all  I had to do was colour the penguin, stamp a sentiment and stick it together.

This naughty boy decided to sit on my Christmas cards .

Inkspirational Challenges - Celebrate


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is: 

In the midst of the Christmas preparations, I find myself scrabbling around for birthday cards for those people who inconveniently were born in December! I made this one with a Silhouette cutting file,  balloon and spot stamps and different coloured inks. 

I hope you'll go and see the DTs fabulous work and join in the challenge.

Christmas in the Wood


It's not often I use more than one or two stamps from a set, but here I made a box card using nearly all of them.

Inkspirational Challenges - Add Glitter


Pia has chosen our new challenge at Inkspirational, and that is to add glitter.

I would say , at Christmastime, that's not TOO challenging - the challenge is to get a photo of it!😊

For my DT card I used two dies - the sky, and the village- which I cut out of glitter cardstock. I think the glittered cardstock shows up well and maybe you can also see a hint of glitter in the embossing of the 'Merry' sentiment.

I hope you'll join us.
