Inkspirational Challenges - Moodboard


Our new challenge at Inkspirational  is to be inspired by this moodboard:

What lovely colours! I decided to make a Mother's Day card for my partner to give to his mum, as Mother's Day in the UK is in about two weeks. So I stamped the flowers, coloured them with markers, used some gold and mint spotty paper as the background and added them to a pink card base.

40th Birthday


This is the card I made for my daughter's 40th birthday which was yesterday - Valentine's Day.  As she was born on the 14th February, I always like to incorporate a heart or two on her cards. 

Here I used a Lori Whitlock digital cutting file, which I cut on a Silhouette digital cutting machine, The original design is a Valentine's card, with two heart-shaped balloons and other little hearts. However, I hope that by changing the colours and papers, and adding the numbers, I've made it suitable for a birthday. 

As I mentioned in a previous post, we had a surprise party for her last weekend. It was in a private room in a cocktail bar and there was lots of fun and cocktails. 

Here are some of the decorations I made for her cake:

I would post a photo of them in the cake, but my phone was kept behind the bar playing a 'hits of 1984' playlist I'd put together for the occasion, so I didn't get a photo.

Inkspirational Challenges - Hearts


Sorry this post is late - I was away all weekend at my daughter's surprise birthday party (it was a surprise to her, not me, so I suppose a poor excuse for me not planning ahead) but more of my daughter's birthday in a later post. 

This is my DT card for Inkspirational Challenges : 

For my card I used an old Docrafts Thank You stamp and die, coloured with markers. The background is a heart stencil that I used multiple times using different ink colours.
