CASE Study #209

Hello everyone,

I am a little late to share with you my CASE Study Challenge card today. But I am here now.
This is Debby's muse card for Challenge #209

I LOVE white on Kraft. The combination is so elegant. And what an elegant holiday card this combination will make? That is what I have gone for. The other element I am inspired by in Debby's card is the wreath, use of sequins and sentiment on vellum. Here is my CASE card.

Come and play along with us.

Runway Inspired Challenge #68

Hey everyone,

I have a new Runway Inspired Challenge for you to play along.
This time it is not a fashion clothing but a shoe! 

How cool is this shoe? I love the texture of the cork and the argyle design. Inspired by them, I created my card. Here it is!

Happy Birthday shoe card

I have used PTI's A Little Argyle background stamp set to stamp and white heat emboss my background on watercolour paper. Then I randomly coloured the diamonds with colours from the shoe using Peerless watercolour. I loved a lot of white space and pop of blue, red and brown colours.
Then I trimmed a cork paper for the centre panel. The shoes are from Clearly Besotted's Stepping Out stamp set. I simply black heat embossed the shoes, watercoloured and cut them out. I have layered them using foam on one. The sentiment is also from Clearly Besotted Stamps called Basic Banner. The gorgeous Sparkly Clear sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

Pretty happy with the how my card turned out as this was not what I planned to make when I sat to craft.

Check out Runaway Inspired Challenge Blog to see how the rest of the designers interpreted the challenge. Now it is your turn to play along. Cannot wait to see what you do :)

Thanks for stopping by!

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Wishing Well!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

We have a wonderful new sponsor, Clearly Whimsy Stamps, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Wishing Well

 A randomly selected participant in the Wishing Well challenge will receive $25 store credit to Whimsy Stamps and the LEAD will be invited as Guest Designer of a our next challenge!

Whimsy Stamps were generous to provide me with this stamp set and coordinating  die as well. This stamp set is called Travel 1 Life is a Journey

So thank you so much for providing the stamp set and die.
Here is my interpretation of the Wishing Well graphics using Travel 1 Life is a Journey stamp set and die.

I have gone with the colours for inspiration. I love the pink and yellow flowers and the grey of the wishing well. I decided to use pink and yellow more and less of green. My background is made using watercolour paper colourwashed with Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed distress ink. I then used the circle dies to die cut out the various sized circles. I have layered them at different dimensions using foam and tape adhesives.

I then die cut and stamped the aeroplane from the stamp set which I mounted using foam adhesives. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of white card stock, which I trimmed at an angle.Finally accented with some gorgeous mint and mossy green sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Tag You're it Challenge #6

Hey everyone,

I have a new tag inspiration from Tag You're It challenge for you today.
This  gorgeous tag is by one of our designer from TYIC -  Karin Akesdotter.

Beautiful pastel colours and love the placement of the flowers and the font of the sentiment. I am inspired by these but being a bright girl, I went for something bright.

Season's greetings

I have used black tag from American Crafts. The poinsettia is from MFT which I have stamped using Festive Berries distress ink and water coloured. I did two of these. Cut one in full and other the centre layer only. I then stamped the poinsettia in Mowed Lawn distress ink and watercoloured. On this one, I cut the periphery to use as leaves. I then just layered the centre layer of the poinsettia over the full poinsettia then the leaves under the full poinsettia. I adhered this layered watercoloured poinsettia on the bottom of the tag. Then white heat embossed the sentiment also from the same set from MFT. Finally accented with gold sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. I love the colour contrast of the flowers against the black background. 

It is you turn to play along. Head over to Tag You're It Challenge Blog to see what the other designers did with the tag. You can also find the linky to link your project at the blog. 

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
