The Artful Stampers Blog Challenge Week 4

Where are the weeks flying off to?
Here we are at week 4 and it is another sketch challenge. Very pretty I think.

 You have come over from Annette Sullivans blog
Super gorgeous, so i flipped it over onto it's side and here is my card using "Flamingo Lingo" and some bling in the form of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. I really love the colour combo of Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss and I used a few of the sequins from both the incolour collection and the frosted sequins.

Again, I had to make a second card as I do but still using the same colour theme with the addition of Coastal Cabana and using the hostess set "Bloom with Hope".
It is really hard to see just how beautiful they turned out by looking at a picture..... very blingy!

 This week I actually only made these cards on Sunday as all week I had been preparing for a big market at Secret Harbour. Thankyou to those who popped along and said hi, it was a super huge day starting off wet and windy and fining up to be quite warm but still a little windy.

Now off to Janes blog to check out her card!
 Here are the bloggers this week

Looking forward to seeing what Alisa has in store for us next week :-)

The Artful Stampers Blog Challenge Week 3

Wow week 3 already you have come over from Anna Fosters page.             

Here is this weeks challenge - a colour one too.
There are some that I don't use alot so it will be a bit of a challenge for me.

I had a stampset in mind to use as it is a great two step stamp and thought it would look gorgeous with these colours.
I used the Stippled Blossoms Stampset along with the thanks from the Good Greetings set which you can earn "FREE" until the end of the month with an order or a party of $300.
I couldn't stop there with the flowers and I had a leftover pack from a class we had done a triple stamped card with so I thought I would use it up! The sentiment is from "and many more" - Perfect.


Now it is off to the ever so talented Alison Barclay to see her interpretation.

Looking forward to next weeks challenge :-)

The Artful Stampers Blog Challenge Week 2

Hello again welcome to week 2 of the Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge.
You have come from Anna Fosters page and I hope you are enjoying the creative talent of the team.
I am really pleased with all the lovely comments and feedback I received last week so I decided why not do this again? Here is the challenge for this week

I immediately had an idea in mind and love the way it worked out.
I used Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder along with Gold to make it pop! The background was using the Large Polka Dot Die and Embossing with Gold powder. The stampset was the hostess set "I Like You" and the sentiment from "and many more". I don't use them much and tend to forget they are in my stash so I used a doily and finished it off with the Gold sequin ribbon!

Looking for even more inspiration? Then head on over to the clever Carolyn Bennies page

The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge

Ok here it is my first ever Blog Hop Challenge. 
You would have come over from the lovely Annette Sullivans page and here is a picture of the challenge.

What a gorgeous colour combination. I used a technique which involves inkpads, water, an acrylic stamping block and the lovely Flower Patch Bundle.

Here is my card

While I was playing with this I found a Perfect Peacock I had coloured in with blendabilities and thought hmmmm this will also be perfect colours for this challenge. (and a great opportunity to finish the card)


The next blog is the amazing Alison Barclay so pop on over and check out what awesome idea she has come up with.
