Pantone Chip Inspiration





hosted by Lexi


If you have the tiniest bits of solid cardstock pieces saved~this is the challenge for you!

I was inspired to create three cards from my solid cardstock remnants.



(SNOWFLAKE CARD: Papertrey Ink What the Doodle Snowflakes/A Thrill of Hope
NOEL CARD:Papertrey Ink Make It Market Tinsel & Tags/In the Meadow/Spruce & Sprigs
AFLOAT CARD:What the Doodle Waves)



 Two of them are CHRISTMAS guys....I'm super super proud of myself for looking ahead. ;)

I'm patting myself on the back for the masculine card too...
 I can almost hear the roar of the crowd's applause!!!

 😆
 

Okay, I'll end my lap around the arena now. ;)

 Thanks for stopping in~

Because I Love You



Flamingo paper followed me home :)
and I wanted to make a just because creation.


(stamp: My Favorite Things Because You  die: My Favorite Things Die-namics Peek-a-Boo Wonky Windows/Because You, Spellbinders Classic Circles  other:washi tape for the stripes)



I used this sketch, but in landscape form, to make room for the script die cut.

Duo With Greens and Touch of Copper




(stamps:Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Flowers,Essentials by Ellen Courage Stamp & Die, Avery Elle Double Pierced Rectangles)



I designed a couple of cards that carry a larger portion of greens and touch of copper (twine) as per the following gorgeous inspiration~

When I'm tempted by shiny accents at the store~I tend to grab the copper.

It's like the other white meat of shinies, you know?

It gets me out of choosing silver or gold ;).


That's it for me today~thanks for stopping by!

 

Window Sentiment



With the right sentiment, a simple window is all you need.


(stamp:Pretty Pink Posh Thoughtful Greetings  die:Spellbinders Classic Circles)


My "window" was a pretty scrap sitting on my desk~


http://inkspirationalchallenges.blogspot.ca/2017/06/challenge-136-designers-choice-windows.html



I re-purposed this trendy clothing tag by adding a ribbon and button.


I don't know when I've last pulled out a needle and thread...

it felt good, it really did.
