Vintage Style Christmas Card - Inspire Creationz

Here at Inspire Creationz we are loving vintage inspired cards at the moment with brands such as Graphic45 and Kaisercraft releasing products perfect for this theme.

This card has been made with Kaisercraft Topper Sheet and the free paper pack received inside Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine in November.

We also like how the black card really makes the red of the paper pop - we will certainly be making more of these cards

Scrap Challenge Update - Inspire Creationz

Morning All, whilst we have a quick coffee and plan our work for the day we thought we would give you a quick update on our Scraps Challenge.

Here is a quick Christmas Card for you continuing our theme of using up all our scraps. My little bits of ribbons and scraps of card & paper are idea for this card as it uses very little materials.  Still tempted to buy more Christmas bits & pieces but determined to use as much as possible from my scraps before I do

How are you getting on with the Challenge?

Barkley Xmas Stamp Card - The Promarkers Have Been Out

Hello...... When we posted a few days ago that the Barkley Stamps have arrived we just had to have a play so out came the inks and pro-markers.

The images have been stamped with Versafine Black ink and then coloured using Promarkers.  For these cards I tried the new Crafters Companion A4 Neenah Ultra Smooth Stamping Card and was really impressed.  It allowed the pens to blend really well without saturating the card - highly recommended!!!!

Both the stamps and the cards are available from our website -

Kaisercraft Scrapbooking Page Created by Guest Designer Sue Chester

We just had to share this fabulous Scrapbook Page created by our talented Guest Designer Sue Chester.  

The Kaisercraft Speciality papers are beautiful and help to show off the photo of her parents perfectly.  Sue complimented the layout with Doilies which had been inked to match the colour scheme.

Simply finished with die cuts, flowers & gems, this is a truly beautiful layout - thank you Sue!

This has given me lots of inspiration so might even make me start scrapbooking again :-)
