INSPIRE.CREATE CHALLENGE #056


Image may contain: text

Hi all,


Welcome to the Inspire.Create Challenges blog.  Challenge number 56 is all about the sketch.


Sketches are one of my favourite ways to approach my projects and this one definitely challenged my flow of creativity!


I am a BIG lover of stripes in my life and I have been non-stop christmas card making so it was nice to have a bit of a change and reach for something non-festive!


I have created my stripes using strips of Night of Navy and Whisper White Cardstock layered onto a base layer of Night of Navy Cardstock.  The strips measure 1" wide.

The flower image comes from the Band Together Stamp Set and has been coloured in with Stampin' Blends and cut out using my trsuty Paper Snips.  



Once attached to the card front, I have added some Wink of Stella to the flower heads to create a bit of sparkle.  

To finish, I have added the sentiment at the bottom of the card and a few Basic Rhinestone Jewels for a bit of extra sparkle!

I hope you enjoy our projects we have put together from this sketch, aren't they all so different!  If you would like to take part in the blog, please add your blog link HERE

STAMP 'N HOP NOVEMBER BLOG HOP


Hi all,

Welcome to the November Stamp 'N Hop Blog Hop.  My name is Stacey Marsh and I am based in the UK!  If you are following the hop, then you will have just seen the wonderful project that was put together by Mo Rootes who is also here in the UK!



This month's challenge is all about the sketch.  I love a sketch as it really helps give some direction to your cards and projects.

 I felt quite inspires by this one but chose to use a star instead of the circle as my focus point!


I have kept my card super simple with a strip of Perfectly Plaid DSP (my favourite DSP collection from the Autumn/Winter catalogue) attached to a Crumb Cake coloured card base.  

I have die-cut one of the Stitched Stars Dies from Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and to add the detai,, I have made 5 score lines from point to point and folded to create the 3d star.

The trim that I have used is the Braided Linen Trim that I have secured just with a knot.  The sentiment comes from the Christmas Gleaming Stamp Set that has been stamped in Shaded Spruce (to match the colours in the DSP of course!)
