March Inkspiration

Good morning crafty friends. It’s time for another fun challenge with the gals from SSInk.

Our inkspiration today is:

My creation is a scene I created for one of the raffles at Inking Idaho on the Road 2017. I was inspired by projects I saw on Pintrest and decided to take them to a new level.

A fun and adorable Easter scene created with many 3-d framelits and dies from Stampin' Up! For more information and inspiration visit www.faithgracestamp.com

Street Scene was created on an 8″ X 16″ canvas from Hobby Lobby

Houses were created using the Sweet Home Thinlits

The Thoughtful Branches Bundle was used for the tree

The bunny and the grass are a part of the Basket Bunch/ Basket Builder Bundle in the Occasions Catalog. Each door of the house has a window sheet so that it can be filled with the chocolate eggs.

The roofs had a small magnet on each of them so they could be opened and closed.

The Tasty Truck stamp set  from Sale-A-Bration was perfect for the street.

This project was a huge hit and it was so very fun to make. It was a project like none that I have done before but it stretched me greatly and I am so happy that I took it on.

A Little Lucky Treat!

Hello laddies! Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Are you going to celebrate today or tonight? We will be gathering with friends that were on our Belize mission trip to share photos and videos.

I’ve created a fun treat holder for you today:

Adorable St. Patrick's Day treat holder made using the curvy keepsake box from Stampin' Up! Find more inspiration at www.faithgracestamp.com

This adorable piece was made using the Curvy Keepsake box from Stampin’ Up! I used only half of the die, cutting 2 out and running them through the chunky embossing folder. Then I glued the 2 parts together and ties with the gold and white ribbon from Sale-A-Bration. The clover was made using the Pansy Punch die and the cute greeting is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. Wouldn’t this be a fun favor for the holiday?

Thanks for coming by today. Be sure to subscribe so that you never miss a piece of inspiration!
