Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - Rainbow After Rain

Good Morning and welcome to another inspiration post from me for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I am sharing with you the gorgeous Rainbow After Rain.

This image is just gorgeous and I really wanted to use the sentiment stamp with her, which came from a set I found on eBay. I thought it would perfect to add to my quotes journal, which hasn't been added to for absolutely ages now! I kept the image fairly simple so the book doesn't become too bulky once it is completed so I just added a few cloud die cuts, some ribbon and the sentiment.

Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration Post - In My Gaze

Good Morning everyone and welcome to my inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Inspiration and Challenge blog. This week I am sharing my card using the gorgeous In My Gaze. The DT were challenged to use Kraft card, but unfortunately I have no idea where my kraft pack is! I hunted and hunted but all I could find was the kraft card blanks, but not the actual pack of A4 card that I am pretty sure I have somewhere! Instead I used Crumb Cake from Stampin' Up, which once upon a time used to be called Kraft, although it's not quite the same colour. I think I can get away with it though!
