Inspire.Create. #025 Guest Designer

Hello Everybody,

Today is a very special day for me… Today I have the enormous pleasure to be a guest designer for this Inspire.Create.Challenge.

This week is a colour challenge, and wouldn’t you know they are three of my favourites!

So this what I have designed.

I have kept the card simple to allow the beautiful colours to shine through.

I used the Chase Your Dreams Framelits to cut five feathers from Whisper White card stock. The word “dream” was cut three times.

The inks were applied to the die cuts using a sponge dauber.

The die cut words were stacked and adhered to the card with Multipurpose glue.

Mini dimensionals were used to adhere the feathers to the card.

A touch of Wink of Stella was added over the top of the die cuts for a little extra sparkle.

I hope have enjoyed this project as much as I did making it!

The supplies used to make this card are listed below.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog post today, please call back again soon.

Happy Stampin’!

For All You Do

Good Morning Everybody,

I have revisited one of my favourite bundles in the Stampin’ Up! Annual catalogue today… The stunning Rooted in Nature and Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper.

The card base was prepared using Tranquil Tide card stock. I picked out a coordinating patterned paper from the Nature’s Poem collection and adhered that to the front.

I love the combination of Tranquil Tide and Blackberry Bliss, so I added a 2 inch strip across the card towards the bottom.

Coordinating inks were used to stamp the trees and these were Die cut. These were then arranged on the card and secured with snail and dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and added to the bottom of the card.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.
