Inspire.Create.Challenge #135 – Sketch Challenge!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and another Inspire.Create.Challenge!

Challenge #135 is a sketch challenge! A sketch gives you an idea from which to build a card layout which can really help with crafter’s block!

You can see the other design team projects and take part in the challenge by clicking below… We’d love to see your makes!

I have used the Petal Park bundle for my project today.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The punch allowed me to create a cluster of flowers with lots of texture!

Using a blending brush over the embossed background brings out the details of the design!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #134 – Case the Designer!

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and another Inspire.Create.Challenge!

Challenge #134 is to Case the Designer…. Me!

This was my take on the “floating DSP” technique.

You can see the other design team projects and take part in the challenge by clicking below… We’d love to see your makes!

I have recreated my card with coloured cardstock rather than designer series paper. All these colours are in the Brights colour family.

With all the colour in the circle element, I kept the rest of the card in monochromatic black and white.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The sentiment was taken from the Something Fancy stamp set and cut with coordinating dies.

This sample uses the Subtles colour family and is embellished with iridescent pastel gems.

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog and to my Inspire.Create.Challenge design team project!

Click the button below to see the other design team inspiration projects. You can also take part and add a photo of your creation here too!

I chose to work with a brand new stamp bundle called Dainty Delight.

You can see how I made my card in my video tutorial….

I combined colours from the bright and subtle colour families for the layering and chose a matching ink for the sentiment.

The image was coloured very simply with Stampin’ Blends.

A touch of ink blending in the background makes the die cut elements pop.

I opted not to add extra embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
