Welcome to another Inspire. Create. Stamping Challenge. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge!

My You Paint My World Hand Stamped card uses Stampin Up's (soon to be released) Follow your Art Suite.

To make the speckled background I used ink refills and a wet paint brush and flicked on co-ordinating colours.

The paintbrushes and pot are from Stampin' Up's Crafting Forever stamp set.

I loved this You Paint My World card so much I used this layout to create another card using Stampin' Up's Come Sail Away suite. I will save that one to share with you in the future

Be sure to check out the projects from the rest of the Inspire. Create design team and submit your own!

All the supplies used to make this card can be purchased through my online store (while supplies last)

Happy Stampin'

Today's project is a lucky birthday card I made using Stampin' Up!'s Amazing Life stamp set.

The friend I made it for is Irish and loves four leaf clovers so it was the perfect card. The background stamping was fun and foolproof!

I heat embossed the images in gold and used Stampin' Blends to colour them in.

Please drop me a message or a comment if you have any questions about how to make this lucky birthday card or the products used.

All the supplied for this card can be purchased through my online shop (while supplies last).

Today's project is another that I started month's ago and finally got around to finishing recently. It is a travel mini album that I made using Stampin' Up!'s Best Route Suite and Memories and More Pack. I am using this album to document the trip I took with my family to Vancouver this past April. We had a great time! And in addition to being able to spend time together and visit with my childhood friend and sister, I was also able to attend Stampin' Up!'s OnStage Convention!

To make the book part of my travel mini album I followed instructions from Pink & Love's video here

I made a few changes, such as swapping out the elastics for Stampin' Up!'s Braided Linen Trim and using dies for the page edges.

The Braided Linen Trim I used instead of elastic bands

I used Stampin' Blends to shade the letters in "travel"

I have not finished filling my mini travel album with my photos but the first several pages are complete so you can get an idea of what it looks like.

Pocket of inside front cover

Every other page has a pull out to include additional notes and pictures

Our flight was delayed so we had a picnic!

My daughter's first flight. She made friends with everyone!

Unfinished pages

Back pocket for extra Memories and More Cards and photos

Although these albums are a little time consuming, I absolutely love how this one turned out and think they would make great gifts! I may need to make some more using different Stampin' Up! suites in the near future!

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions about how this album was made or any of the products used.

All supplies can be purchased (while supplies last) through my online store.

My Follow Your Art Mixed Media page has been a long time in the making. I started it months ago and designed the background but had not gotten a chance to finish it.

This layout was inspired by a piece of scrapbook paper of pencil crayon ends I had seen in a magazine. I decided to recreate it using circle punches!

I had intended to only use Stampin' Up!'s Crafting Forever stamp set but the Follow Your Art suite came out (pre-order for demonstrators) and the watercolour pencil and "follow your art" stamp were absolutely perfect for this page! The DSP and embellishment kit were bonuses!

The watercolour background for my page was created using watercolour pencils.

I used ink refills to watercolour the "create" title.

I am very happy with how this page turned out and loving the suite! So many fun cards to make with this and combining it with the Crafting Forever set makes for perfectly paired projects!!

The supplies used for the page can be purchased through my online shop (while supplies last). The Follow Your Art Suite of products will be available beginning June 3rd, 2019.

Happy Stamping!

Very excited to share these watercolour rainbow dream notecards with you. Even more so as I was blessed to have them published in this spring's edition of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine!

I used Stampin' Up!'s Follow Your Dreams bundle to create these cards. Which is quite fitting as getting my creative work published was definitely one of my dreams!!

"Dream" was die cut from the watercolour rainbow background and from whisper white cardstock white was inlayed into the rainbow card and painted with shimmery white ink

The rainbow dream die cut was used to make this second card. I coated the die cut in glue from the fine tip glue pen to give in the dimensional sheen

And here are my cards featured on p. 48 of Creative Scrapbooker!!

What dreams can Stampin' Up! help you achieve?

All My Love Kit

in , , , , , by Nature Gibner - Ink N Inspiration, 03:03

Earlier this year I participated in a kit swap where we each put together a bunch of coordinating products into a "kit" to exchange with each other. I chose to use products from the All My Love suite. I decided to dress my All My Love kit up a little bit and created a book to display it in. Stamps, dies and paper from the suite were used to create embellishments which I included in the kit.

There are lots of pictures of the book posted below. Be sure to watch my YouTube video to see all the handmade embellishments, get dimensions and hear more about all the supplies I used! :-)

Creating the Covers

To make the covers, I used the chipboard from Memories & More 6 x 8 Pocket Pages, wrapping them in Designer Series Paper.

Finished All My Love Kit

The bunting banner peels off the back cover to be used by the recipient. My swap partner ended up hanging it across her lightbox!

This pocket is full of handmade embellishments

I hope you found something you loved in this project! If you have any questions about process or supplies please message me or comment below. Supplies for this All My Love Kit can be purchased through my online store (while supplies last).

Happy Stamping!
