Inspire.Create.Challenges #123 – Sketch Challenge with Dragonfly Garden

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog today sharing with you my design team project for the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog!

Our challenge this time is to use this card sketch.

See the other design team creations HERE

I chose to use some ink blending to create the vertical panel.

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

This colour combo reminds of a sunset on a summer’s evening!

The black layer ties the embossing and sentiment together.

This card takes on a completely different look by using these deeper colours. White embossing would look good too!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Creative Colour Challenge #28 with Blossoms in Bloom

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card is my entry for last week’s Creative Colour Challenge. These challenges are fun to take part in and make you think creatively to use the colours! A new challenge starts each Monday!

I turned to one of my favourite stamp sets in the current annual catalogue so I’m hoping it won’t retire!

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

The stamparatus makes this card even easier to create!

I used Bumblebee for my card base (I didn’t have enough of the other colours) but this would look just as good, if it better, on a white base too!

I hope you enjoyed this project.

Ink Stamp Share – September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog this afternoon… Today I’m hopping with a whole host of crafters from all over the world.

Please be sure to pay them all a visit and leave some encouraging comments!

How can I resist a colour challenge! The hop this month is challenging creators to use this gorgeous palette!

I decided to work with florals. One of favourite bundles this year is Flowers of Friendship… Perfect for this challenge.

The subtle Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam provided a soft back drop to the deeper colours I used as the focal point of the card.

Wink of Stella glitter and basic rhinestones add some sparkle too.

This was my original sample as another idea of how these colours can be used together.

It’s as if Stampin’ Up! made this suite just for me! My favourite colour Blackberry Bliss, gorgeous gold ribbon and vellum and owls on the speciality paper and in the ephemera pack!

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

What I love the purples I’ve also used the Early Espresso and Cinnamon Cider too, this combination is much more appealing in real life…

Super Fast Cards with Oh So Ombre Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

The end of Sale-a-bration is fast approaching so I have some super fast cards to share today!

I’ve chosen the Oh So Ombre paper to work with but you could use this simple layout with any of the patterned papers available.

The topper uses the Approaching Perfection stamp set which is also part of the promotion.

I did not add any extra ribbons or embellishments to these samples, the idea was to keep them very simple on this occasion.

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I made this card using all four colours in the Oh So Ombre collection!

Bermuda Bay and Blackberry Bliss are two of my favourite colours!

And here are the Rococo Rose and Granny Apple Green versions!

Do you have a favourite?

All the “C”s Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Wow… What a challenge this was!

I was completely thrown by the Coastal Cabana but I like the end result! Ideally I think I would have used this as my layer instead of the Crushed Curry!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I’m still unsure whether I prefer the Coastal Cabana or Crushed Curry resin dots – what do you think?

How to Make Dimensional Flowers with the Lacy Petals Dies

Hello Everyone,

Did you spot these dies in the mini catalogue? I have to say it took me a while…. But so glad I did!

These beautiful flowers are so easy to make and aren’t they gorgeous!

See how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I really like the Stitched with Whimsy dies too. I used them to add some details to the background.

This sample is made with Rococo Rose cardstock. Both Pretty Peacock and Rococo Rose will retire in June!

This is the card I entered in to the blog hop at weekend… you can take a look at the rest of the hop starting here!

I used this wonderful bundle called Best Year. The stamp set has sentiments for all year round.

The dies are easy to use. It only takes a few minutes to release all the tiny details.

You can have lots of fun with colour combinations too!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

The bold sentiment was die cut with a Stitched Rectangle die and a few pearls completed the card.

I chose to make my project using these fantastic products!

The Stitched with Whimsy dies added stunning detail to my background layer. The set has 6 dies, 3 squares and 3 rectangles!

The layer was matted with black cardstock. Daffodil Delight ribbon was added before adhering to a Daffodil Delight card base with dimensionals.

The Delicate Petals bundle has some beautiful stamps, but the dies are amazing! The dimensional flowered were easy to create with Basic White and Daffodil Delight cardstock. The stitched lacy details are incredible.

Soft Sea Foam ink was used to stamp over the background too.

The sentiment was stamped in Daffodil Delight ink. This fitted nicely in the Double Oval punch. I love the wavy edge rather than a scallop.

I used the Black Matte Dots for the centres which pulled in the black layering. The matte finish makes these perfect for male cards too.

Here’s a close up of those stitched details!

I hope you enjoyed this project.
