Let’s Ink It Up Meets Sentimental Sundays

Love all those tags.  When opened they all just bounce into life.



Surprise, surprise chuck Let’s Ink It Up Challenge is Christmas …. ha ha I know, only Cilla and us oldies will understand that one …. the twist this time round is to add Sparkle or Bling …. how easy is that especially at Christmas time. Only two weeks this time round for the challenge girls …. whoopee …. good ole Suzanne is letting us have time off for good behaviour …. oops sorry I mean Christmas.

All the DT’s have left you some lovely inspiration to look at, so go take an ogle and while there leave us your creations so we can visit you and leave lots of Christmas love & cheer.

Making this Sunburst mini album was fabulous …. found the tutorial here …. fell in love with it hook line and sinker, changed the album cover because I wanted a fold over front.

It is such a huge surprise when opened, the album bursts out to display all 7 tags inside. I used core card for my album and stamped holly leaves onto the V shaped edges before I put it together. When I was finished stamping, embossing, distressing, dry embossing …. used 5 different embossing folders …. each tag, I dabbed versamark all over, covered with holographic embossing powder and heated, also did the same to the back, wow do they bling and pop. Will be making this one again

Next is my easel card for this weeks Sentimental Sundays Challenge – Anniversary


Sorry about the sense of humour …. bit warped sometimes …. couldn’t resist adding the bit about the buns and admit it you had a little smile.

I particularly like Sentimental Sundays freebies this week and the winner also gets 4 individual sentiments sets from the Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection and a custom watermark/signature set from the Custom Design at Whimsy Stamps. DT girls have all excelled themselves this week with such a varied selection of cards to give you tons of inspiration.
