Positive Inkers Global Blog Hop - October...


Good afternoon, I am so excited, I have been kindly invited to join the Positive Inkers Global Design Team.  Of course I said yes, what a great privilege and I can't wait to share my first project with you.

The Design Team are a group of very talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from around the World so you can imagine my excitement when I was asked to join them.

Today we are sharing projects with you based on the following sketch.  You may have joined me from the amazing Anne-Marie or starting the hop here but you will find a list of participants at the end of this post so you can follow the hop around.

I love working with a sketch, it is a great way to get your creative mind working.  I use them quite a lot when I need a little nudge and it makes me think out of the box.  The sketch is there to inspire you, it doesn't mean you have to copy everything exactly.  For example, instead of the triangles on the sketch, I have used stars.

So, let me show you my project.

Wildly Happy Stampin' Up!

I was using the stamp set Wildly Happy for another project.  I hadn't used it for a while and thought it worked really well with this sketch.

I was originally drawn to this by the elephants but I like all the images in this beautiful set.  I stamped the elephants in Memento ink and used Stampin' Blends to colour them.

Here are some close ups of those cute elephants.

I hope you like my project, I had so much fun creating it and thought I would share a quick video with you to show how it was made.

Sandy is up next and I am sure she will have something amazing to share with you today.

All of the products I have used to create my project can be purchased from my online shop by using the links below.
