INKspired Blog Hop #5

Hi again for the next blog hop challenge. Welcome back if you are a regular with my blog or a regular follower of the INKspired Artists blog hop. If you are new to this page a great big welcome to you as well. As always a quick summary on what our blog is about. We are a group of crafters that love to create cards/projects and are given a sketch every fortnight to use as inspiration to make our own creation with. You can start where ever you like and continue through everyone's blogs checking out their creations as you go. I love being part of this blog hop. I am sure those of you who are currently visiting my page from the lovely Barbara Williams' blog enjoyed seeing her project this week.

Onto this weeks challenge and here is the sketch:

This was a great sketch and can be used in many ways. What I love about sketches, you can change it up to create you own and I have definitely done that this week. Firstly I was going to create something using the exact shape that was on the sketch and I discovered that I didnt have any oval shaped framelits so I went with my absolute favourite framelit at the moment which is the star framelits.
Now as I love the star framelits so much I had to also use the wonderful Bright and Beautiful Stampset to go with it as it so incredibly beautiful.
With this sketch I have created another Christmas card using the cool and beautiful colours of Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. They are a lovely combination together. Alot of my Christmas cards have been in similiar colour tones this year and would match perfectly for the cool wintery Christmas that the Northern Hemisphere get. Very different to the weather that I am experiencing right now on my holiday up in the Sunny Gold Coast.  Definitely nothing like the wintery Christmas in Europe etc that they are currently experiencing as the Christmas session is almost upon us. Yesterday we stood ( I had a 3 year old on my shoulders for what felt like forever ) with hundreds of other crazy Santa Claus and Frozen fans in the 36 degree heat and humidity waiting for the arrival of Santa Claus at Robina Shopping Centre yesterday! Poor Santa in his Santa Suit! He really should get changed into an Australian climate friendly suit upon arrival!

Anyway back to my cool wintery colour toned card. Here it is:-

Hopefully you will be able to see from my picture that it is another shaker card. I have really been enjoying these cards. So much fun to make and really add a wow factor to your project. I did this card in a card class recently at my craft studio at Summerland Point ( Central Coast )and the ladies loved it. It was a little more time consuming then your average card but it was well worth it. The hardest bit is deciding who to give it to!!!!

 Next up is the very talented Janelle Taylor so enjoy hopping over to her to see her wonderful creation by clicking on the next blog button.

Thanks again for dropping by and checking out my creation, hope you enjoyed it! If you are interested in checking out the products I have used to create this card scroll below and click on the products to be taken to my online store.
