JUGS Inspiration Time

Maria is Hosting this week and it is our
Inspiration Challenge
Don't you just love what she picked for us?

Nothing looks more inviting than a gingham table cloth
with yummy mouth watering watermelon.
But then there is that lovely old red car in the background.
Take your pick on what inspires you and let those
creative juices flow.
That gingham table cloth sold me so that is what I went for.
I got out my Sizzix Hexagon embossing folder for my background
and die cut varies sized Spellbinder hexagon dies.
One that I haven't used in a while.
These were cut out from scrap DP.
Added several Sizzix butterflies after inking around the edges
Sentiment sponged lightly and from Gina K Designs
Finished with a few pearls.
Hope you are inspired and you pop over to our JUGS blog
 to see what the Design Team and Guest - Ros Crawford created
and come join in this weeks Challenge.
Thanks for dropping in

Time to Sketch at Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday

It is time again for me to post for our Latest Challenge over at
Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday
and you can find all the details HERE.
I had been away visiting my sister when the sketch below was
put up for the DT to work on so I had to quickly get into my
craft space and get to work.
Well I think Mo and Jo were napping
as it took me a little while to think about what I wanted to make.
Lucky for me we don't have to include stamping as what I made
would not have been suitable (phew)
This gorgeous photo and sketch below is courtesy of KAYLIN.
I found some scrapbooking paper that looked colourful
just like the photo so after I embossed my blue paper
and cut it with my Stampin' Up die
I cut out the HELLO die from Lawn Fawn
and glued the little centre pieces to finish.
My flower is from MFT - Mini Hybrid Heirloom Rose
popped on Spellbinder dies and I added
Startdust Stickles.
So there you have it.
I hope you will pop over to Our Blog
Checkout the other Designer's cards
and have a go at this great sketch.
Love to see yours there.

WIW Inspiration Challenge at The House

There is the most beautiful photo over at
and I got the chance to play with another new stamp
from Repeat Impressions.
Don't you just LOVE IT!
I have been away visiting my sister for the last week and
now getting back to normal and back in my craft room.
Here is what I made.
My base is Kraft c/s and scored
The background for my focal image is
sponged with Distress Inks
Stormy Sky Peacock Feather and
Cracked Pistachio
I then sponged some Iridescent medium
for a touch of shimmer.
The Flower is from Repeat Impressions - 9706
Embossed with Candy Blue
and Butterfly - 107 in Black
Added a touch of gold liquid pearls to the centre
of the flower and roughed it up for texture.
Finished with a sentiment from Justrite
and popped my flower.
