Hi, Sarah here.

I want to use the blog to let you know about what's going on at Inky Doodles, in my head and in the wider world of stamping and papercraft so that you too can be inspired and create something amazing!

With the help of the wonderful Caroline Shinnie I hope to be able to show a card or project with instructions most days.

    Inks Used: Memento - Tuxedo Black  Rich Cocoa   Lilac Posies, Distress ink - Gathered Twigs
    Other items used: Promarkers, Buttons, Ribbon, Lace, Pins, Glue Gel, Backing paper & 7x7 card blank
    Cut a piece of spotty backing paper, slightly smaller than your card blank, tear across the bottom about 1 inch from the edge to give a scruffy look. Randomly stamp the sentiments in Black Memento onto this backing paper. Stamp, colour in and cut out two of the images from the Afternoon Tea set, (I've used the doughnuts and rock buns) and add to the backing paper. Glue a piece of lace along the front and stick to your card blank. 
    For the topper, stamp the country check in lilac posies twice, this will make a square shape. Cut this out and ink the edges with gathered twigs. Fill in the gaps with the cupcake, the heart and the strawberry stamps using Black Memento and colour them in with promarkers. Stick this to the card blank. 
    For the cake topper, stamp, colour and cut out the cake stand, two cakes & a pile of doughnuts. Curve these slightly and pile them up using 3d glue gel. For the sentiment, stamp onto scrap card and edge with a promarker, finish with black faux stitching. Add the pins to the top of the cake, and add ribbon and buttons. Finally, ink around the edge of the card blank using Cut n dry foam.


    Stamps Used 
    Inkpads Used 
    Distress Inks - Dusty Concord, Vintage Photo, Milled Lavender 
    Other items used
    8x8 card blank, purple card, clear embossing powder, cie cut corners, ribbon, white detail pen, 
    To make the background, cut a square of purple card, about an inch smaller than your card blank. Stamp using Black Memento, the small butterfly, the flight sentiment and the butterfly script randomly all over. Stamp in Victorian Velvet the small leaves and flower. Take the Daisy Daisy mask and place in the centre of the purple card and run through an embossing machine. Then using a white detail pen add markings to the butterfly and stitch detail around where the edge of the mask was. Distress the edges and curl the corners, then stick it to the card blank. Add 4 die cut corners.
    For the topper use a smaller piece of white card, curl and distress the edges as before. Stamp the large butterfly in Black Versafine and use clear embossing powder. Paint it with Vintage Photo distress ink. On another piece of card, stamp the butterfly again and paint it with Dusty Concord, Milled Lavender and Vintage Photo. Cut out just the body and the wings and stick it to the topper. Glue just the body so the wings lift up. Stamp and emboss the sentiment using the Stitched Alphabet set, cut out and add it to the card. Finish with a ribbon.
    Stamps Used
    Inkpads Used
    Memento - Black, Teal Zeal, Rhubarb Stalk
    Distress Inks - Mustard Seed, Rusty Hinge, Peacock Feathers
    Other Items used
    Button, Square Die Cut, Ribbon
    For the background, emboss a piece of card with the Twisted Check Mask and colour it in using cut n dry foam with Teal Zeal, Peacock Feathers & Rusty Hinge ink pads. Stamp the script background in Black Memento over the top. To finish the background, add a piece of ruffled ribbon, using extra sticky double sided tape.
    To make the flower topper, ink up the script background stamp in Teal Zeal. Then, using the tall narrow tree from the Topiary stamp set, ink up with Mustard seed and then press into the script background to lift off the pattern. Stamp eight of these to make a flower shape. Stamp the small hearts from the same set around the centre of the flower using Rhubarb Stalk and Black Memento. Cut the flower shape out using a square die of your choice so that the flower falls off the corner of the shape.  To finish off, randomly stamp the script background in Teal Zeal and ink the edges with Rusty Hinge and Peacock feathers.  Add a sentiment of your choice and a button to the centre of the flower.
