INKspired Blog Hop - Festive Flower

18 October 2015

Welcome to another team INKspired blog hop. You may have just hoped here from my best-friend Kabrina. I love her card this week, she is so talented and I love that we share a common craft interest. 

This weeks sketch design from Teneale is fabulous. I knew exactly what I wanted to create with this sketch, which is a little unusual for me!

As soon as I spotted the Flower Builder Punch in the new Holiday Catalogue, it reminded me of my Mum and her love for poinsettias at Christmas. She always has a poinsettia plant on the coffee table and it's just not Christmas without one. Hence this will be my Mum's Christmas card this year, I know I might be a bit biased, but isn't it beautiful?! 

I will admit that the flower is a little tricky to put together, that was until I watched the video! Hahaha. (I was like my husband last week putting together a piece if Ikea furniture without the instructions...shhh, don't tell him I told you that!)  I would advise to watch the Stampin' Up! technique video before putting this together and even possibly using a hot glue gun if you have one.(Note that I also advise reading the instructions when putting together anything from Ikea!!)

Moving along the hop now to the super lovely and talented Barbara. You will be so inspired by her gorgeous creation this week, I know I was.

  1. Beautiful as usual Lou. Love that you have the video there for use to check out. Your mum is going to just love her card to bits

  2. Maybe they should rename this punch the IKEA festive flower. It is a bit tricky but well worth the results! Your mum is going to be thrilled with this card xx

  3. Your mum will love this card. Yes they say it is always good to read or watch instructions...but sometimes we are impatient! Your card is beautiful.xx

  4. GORGEOUS! Just like you. I love the impact of this flower on your card - and the band of glimmer paper is a nice add. Such a talent.

  5. Stunning! Funny enough I was thinking of using the poinsettia punch, we could have been twins.
