The paperdolls and chipboard sentiment are from Tim Holtz. The striped DP is Maja Design, the vintage one was a leftover piece.

      Inkspirational #189 - Garden

      We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time it's a garden theme. There are plenty of options with this one, please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies and our guest designer - Milla.

      I don't use butterflies often, but here they have taken center stage. I've used butterfly dies from Penny Black. I added a coat of white gesso and sprinkled on some white and gold frantage.  I used a Tim Holtz stencil for the blooms. The sentiment came free with a magazine. The colors are a lighter in real life, I was unable to capture the right shades with my camera...

      Twofer Card Challenge, Bees and Sketches

      I have two cards to share, for the Twofer Card Challenge #17, which is BEES. 
      For both cards I used dies from Memory Box. The choice was rather easy as it was the only bee element I found in my stash of rubber stamps and dies. It's quite fiddly to put these bees together,  adding the stripes and all. I added glitter glue to the wings and gave the bees a coat of glossy accent as I wanted to make sure every glued element wold stay in place.
      I made a birthday card and a 'just because' card. 
      1) Birthday card
      On my first card I used foam stamps from Tim Holtz to ake the flowers and leaves sing black ink and Distress Oxides. The birthday greeting came free with a magazine. I cut the sentiment with a stitched cloud/speech bubble die from MFT. Washi tape strips added to the side to mimic the Sunday Stamps sketch.

      2) An uplifting 'just because' card
      For my second card I used a sentiment and flower stamps from Penny Black. I had planned to go with no coloring on this one but I couldn't resist adding blue lines around the images to make them stand out a bit more.

      Stripes and Christmas flowers

      The number of Christmas cards I need increases from year to year, and I try to avoid having to making lots last minute. I’m no good at creating under pressure. So here’s another one done and ready.

      The Art of Stripes: Over 30 ways to wear stripes: Hardie Grant, Libby VanderPloeg: 9781784881511: Books I was inspired by the book title for the stripes, and also the colors of the cover, although my DP is a much deeper red that the woman’s trousers. The poinsettias are a traditional Christmas element, but I feel that the look of the design is more modern than traditional? I cut the flowers from fun foam and added a few pearls and sequins.

      The Library Challenge - The Art of Stripes

      The background is made with papers from Maja Design, cut with a Penny Black die.

      Inkspirational #188 - woman photo

      We have a new challenge at Inkspirational and this time it's a photo challenge. I picked the simple choice of using a stamp from Stamping Bella with a long legged girl.

      It wasn't deliberate but this card actually turned out to be a one layer card - I don't make many of those.
      My image was stamped over the edge - that was delibarete - I did a little bit of coloring, stamped a bold sentiment and added frantage for sparkle.

      Please head over to the challenge blog to see inspiration from my teamies and our guest designer - Milla from Mustesormi blog.
