Inspire.Create.Challenge #087 Sketch Challenge with the Peony Garden Suite

Hello Everyone,

Today I am sharing my project for the Inspire.Create challenge. Design Team!

This time it’s a sketch challenge. The rest of the design team have made some wonderful samples as inspiration. You can see them here not give it a go? We’d love to see your creations!

I have chosen the Peony Garden Suite for my design and went for a gatefold card to complement the sketch layout.

There were some tricky measurements in making this particular card, but these can be adjusted slightly to meet your needs.

Gray Granite ink was used to stamp the peony image which was coloured with Soft Sea Foam and Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends and die cut.

Elegant Faceted Gems added a touch of bling, I did manage to get my Wink of Stella working (maybe it was camera shy?) and added a bit of that too!

I hope you enjoyed this project. You can see the video tutorial here!

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

If your order is less than £150, use the Hostess Code F2QFV2PT when placing your order to get an extra gift from me!

I would love to be your demonstrator.

Thanks for stopping by today and happy Stampin’!

Beautiful World Gatefold Card

Hello Everyone,

Today’s card had a more masculine feel and features the Beautiful World bundle and coordinating designer series paper.

To make the gatefold card base, cut the card stock lengthways at 5-7/8 inches and trim down to 8-1/2 long.

Score at 2-1/8 on both ends of the cardstock, fold and burnish really well.

The left over pieces can be used to make the topper which can be sized as you want.

Cut the DSP at 5-3/4 inches, turn and cut pieces at 2, 4 and 2 inches. These will fit the front panels and inside.

See how I put the rest of the card together in my video tutorial…..

I added a white panel inside the card to write a message.

These papers are really pretty with the brass foil!

My original sample was made with the opposite side of the paper and Basic Black cardstock.

Have you shopped the sale yet?

I hope you enjoyed this project.
