Inky Impressions Grand Opening & Blog Hop


Hiya girls,

Oh I've been SO looking forward to this day! The Grand Openening of Inky Impressions! The day we (Nicole & The Inspirational Inkettes) get to introduce the utterly adorable LiLi & Angelica to the world.
We are having an Amazing blog hop and at the end of the hop there is some YUMMY candy up for grabs, more about that at the end of this post ;o)

The Inky Impressions stamps are EXTRA deep etched on quality red rubber for a crips, clean impression every time! The stamps are unmounted and come with EZ Mount, so you can just put them on an acrylic block and get them Inky!
I've already fallen totally in love with these adorable images, and I know you will too! They are just too cute for words.

As I was saying, to celebrate the Grand Opening of Inky Impressions, we (The Inspirational Inkettesn & Nicole) are participating in a blog hop, to inspire you with the new Inky Impressions rubber stamp line. If you didn't start the blog hop at the beginning, then you want to head back to Nicole's Blog (she is Inky's Mama) so you don't miss anything. Be sure to follow the blog hop all the way to the end, for a chance to win some YUMMY blog candy!

For my card I used the gorgeous stamp 'LiLi's birthday cake' I think she is my fav stamp of this collection (today that is, lol), look at her hair, those little ponytails, isn't that just too cute? And that expression on her face, sooo adorable you gotta love her, lol!
Look at that cake, it looks good enough to eat doesn't it? I LOVE cake, especially chocolate cake, you can wake me up for that anytime, lol!

Here's the card I made, I used the 'Create4fun' sketch and I'm entering it to their challenge I'm also entering it into the 'Cute Card Thursday' challenge which is to use punches and 'Charisma Cardz' which is to use Pink & Brown.
I used Bazzil Kraft cardstock, Basic Grey Bittersweet papers & brads, Prima say it in Crystals, and I've punched flowers out of the DP and Cardstock with EK Succes Retro flower punches. I bought the roses and charm from Ebay. The rubon is Making Memories.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For my next project I used another gorgeous image 'Angelica's bunny hugs'. Isn't she adorable? I wanted to show how you can use these stamps in combination with pictures, like scrapbook pages or an altered item like mine. Every child has had a picture taken with her or his fav stuffed animal right? This stamp is PERFECT to use with those pictures! I also could have used the 'LiLi' stamp I used for the card with a birthday picture, every mother has TONS of those pictures, right?! I know I do, lol.
For this project I used a baby picture of my youngest daughter (Keziah). On this picture she was only a couple of months old. Awww she was such a cute baby, don't ya think? Now she's a little monster of almost a year and a half trying to get her hands on my crafting stash (eeek!!), and running around screaming mama (dutch for mom/mum), cuz that's the only real word she can say. She has a lot of fun yelling it at the top of her longs all day long, poor neighbours, lol! Love my little monsters! lol


I'm entering this into the 'Secret Crafter Saturday' challenge, which is to use bling and that's right up my alley, lol!
For this project I used Bazzill Cardstock, My Minds Eye papers & die cuts, Prima say it in crystal and roses I bought of Ebay.

Next head over to the SUPER talented Inspirational Inkette Shary to see her amazing creations!

Be sure to start the hop at Nicole's blog and finish it to the last blog, so you don't miss out on a chance to win this YUMMY candy:

The blog candy will close on Friday June 12 at midnight (Eastern). The winner will be announced Saturday June 13.

Good luck and have fun blog hoppin'! ;o)

And don't forget the 'INKY IMPRESSIONS' store is now OPEN
, yihaa..

Hope you liked my creations and thank you for stopping by,

xx
