Inkspirational Card #1

Hello fellow crafting chums,

How did your week start? Well, you have got passed the Monday blues and, for our US crafters, you are one day closer to 'hump' day (makes me giggle every time I say that!)

Mynnette is starting up a new challenge blog and is looking for a DT. She has set 4 challenges for us to enter if we are interested in being part of her team. The challenge is called 'Inkspirational'. Today I am sharing with you my first card which is a 'case' of the card below:

As I am a fan of 'clean and simple', I decided to CAS 'case' this card. Instead of having a strip of patterned paper I decided to ink my own pattern taking the inspiration from the flower. I inked a different flower in 'lilac posies' memento ink, cut it out and raised it with a foam pad to give the card some dimension. I added a small, simple sentiment and just inked the edges of the white card. Naturally I used my much loved PTI linen impression plate. So here is my CAS 'case' of Mynettee's card. Sorry about the shadow-serves me right for taking photos when the sun has gone down......you live and learn!!

And Make it Monday this week is all about stamping the inside of your card. So again I have made this CAS  using the 'garden of life' stamp set from PTI

Enjoy the rest of your day x


  1. woohoo.....I love hot pink and against the black it is awesome!!

  2. Sandie, this is so fabulous! LOVE the colors you used, and I adore that you decorated the inside of your card, too!!! Amazing CASE--thank you for joining my DT call--I can't wait to see your other three projects and good luck! :)

  3. Gorgeous, my friend! Love the colour combo and the flowers. I'll be cheering for you! ...Hello? Are we hooked on doing the insides too? Way to go!!!! Hmmm. Will there be a stitch or two on the next card?!
