Inkspirational #82

Hi All

Our challenge this week at Inkspirational has been chosen by our very own team mate Shauna.  Shauna has challenged us to use at least 3 of the following when creating our cards:


Here is what I came up with:

I have gone with:
Distressing the edges of my centre card stock have been cut with a distressing tool and then sponged with distress ink

Embossing-I have used my linen embossing folder on the centre card stock

Flowers-this was the hardest part of this card as I knew I wanted to make this for my Uncle. I decided to hunt through my stamps until I found a flower I could use that didn't make the card feminine in any way. I think I made this challenge more challenging than it needed to be but I was not going to give up on my idea! Eventually I found a grunge washi tape stamp by STAMPlorations that has flowers amongst leaves and text-I did it!

Now it is your turn. I am looking forward to seeing what you create.

 Have fun x


  1. Very fun and creative! Great with a vintage/distressed/CAS look, your uncle will love this!

  2. Love this...the gold embossing is stunning and the sentiment is perfect.

  3. Scrumptious Sandie and so clever.
    You rock these colours too! I've a sneaky suspicion I may have something to enter very soon!!! :-) Sarah x

  4. Wow, Sandie ... you've taken all those elements (that would scare me silly!) and made the most amazing CAS card ... so clever! Anita :)

  5. Sandie, what a fabulous way to use these elements for a masculine card! Clever, handsome, amazing....your uncle will love this!

  6. Yes, you probably did this a lot more complicated than what you needed, but hooray for being able to make it masculine and vintage and at the same time keeping it CAS!! It's something I'm sure I wouldn't be able to pull off.

  7. It worked; it is a beautiful card for a guy! Think this challenge is a hard one, but you managed so perfectly to keep it so simple! Enjoy the sunday!

  8. Love this Sandie! I really like your distressed edges and the stamp you used for your flower element is awesome. Your uncle will love it I'm sure. :-)

  9. Amazing you managed to keep cas on a challenge such as this! And beautifully done, especially the distressed edges.

  10. You really challenge the challenge
    yeah manly card can not be with pearl
    and cant be with flower
    better you make mother card and it must be great to put a flower and pearl on it
    but your FINISH THE JOB with a gut solution yeah
    happy to see your card for uncle and I see a little flower there
    clever solution Sandie
    love your card
