Inspire.Create.Stamping 'Celebration!' Challenge #100

| on

Welcome to my blog, and to the 100th Challenge for Inspire.Create.Stamping Challenges.
Our Design Team have created for our Theme Challenge 'Celebration!', and we want you to join in the fun and celebrate with us.

Add your project to our gallery here.

I have created a couple of cards using the 'What A Year Memories & More Card Pack'.
An opportunity to create cards, or scrapbook layouts  using these colourful and vibrant cards that are ready to go....

One of the large cards has 'Celebrate', and I immediately made this the feature; Die cutting with the stitched rectangledie from the 'Ornate Layers Die..
Adding a 'Magenta Madness' layer, & Ornate Border, to coordinate with the colours of the flowers.

And some 'Matte Silver Subtle Shimmer Sequins' scattered on the floral card.

And a sweet floral Mini card. 
The 'Layering Circles Dies' are always a winner on a card front. 

A 'Magenta Madness' layer, with a sentiment from the 'Lovely You' stamp set. 
A few scattered 'Matte White Subtle Shimmer Sequins' & 'White Baker’s Twine' with a double bow.

'What A Year Memories & More Card Pack' & coordinating 'Basic White Memories & More Cards & Envelopes' make for gorgeous cards and Scrapbook pages - especially when Celebrating.

Thankyou so much for visiting my blog, and for supporting us with our 100th Challenge.
I can't wait to see your project in our gallery, and let's just Celebrate.

Inspire.Create.Stamping'CASE the Designer' Challenge #099

| on

We have a *CASE the Designer Challenge for inspire.create.stamping Challenges.
We are CASEing our very own Hannah, and her 'Sweet Strawberry' creation. 
We would love for you to join in with our Challenge, and you can add your project here.
*CASE = Copy And Share Everything.

My creation uses the cute 'Penguin Place' stamp set and coordinating Sale-A-Bration 'Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper'.

I have used 2 different designs of the Designer Series Paper for the card front, adhered to a 'Just Jade' layer, and a fussy cut Penguin and his little blue bird friend.

The sentiment is stamped using 'Misty Moonlight' ink with stamped off  'Pool Party' snowflakes. 
The sentiment element is from the 'Painted Labels Dies'.
TIP: Die cut the 'Basic White' cardstock element first, then stamp the sentiment and add the snowflakes last.

A touch of 'White Baker’s Twine', and a few scattered Matte Silver 'Subtle Shimmer Sequins' for the finishing touch.

And the snowman needed to make an appearance. He has a 'Misty Moonlight' layer to coordinate with his hat & scarf.

The same sentiment element as the Penguin creation.

And 'White Baker’s Twine'.
Now, here's an idea - I think the twine could be coloured with a 'Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin' Blends Marker'?
And don’t forget those gorgeous little Matte Silver Subtle Shimmer Sequins'.

I just think these cards are so fun,  and very cute too!

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I will see you for our 100th Challenge in a couple of weeks. D x

As you can see, I have 'Zhuzhed' up my second card to next level!
Lots of detail, and added extras, to step up my first creation.
We always need a Flake chocolate in our ice cream, and thanks to Mikaela for her little bit of extra chocolate with my Strawberry ice cream.
My bow was inspired by Artisan Design Team member Tammy Wilson - and my bow looks nothing like a Tammy bow!

Which one is your favourite?
I'm not an over the top kinda girl, and I really loved making my triple scooped card.

Thankyou so much for visiting my Page and let's look forward to visiting my talented friend Sara Nell Langland. Sara's creations are always amazing and so inspiring.

See you next time. D x
