Inspire. Create. Challenge. First Ever Challenge!!! #001

I am so pleased and proud to have been chosen to join the DT on this new challenge blog - Inspire. Create. Challenge. This is a new, fortnightly (Yes! Lots of fun inspiration and ideas, regularly) challenge blog with clever and talented DT members so there's sure to be a lot of great inspiration each fortnight :-)
I don't know about you but I love a good challenge, it's great for when you have a little creative block to work to a challenge- be it a colour, sketch or theme challenge you're sure to be inspired to create something!
Today is the very first challenge (#001) on the BLOG and the challenge this week is to use Basic Grey, Calypso Coral and White for your cards/projects.
So lets see what I came up with shall we. And as it's the very first challenge I decided to make two cards using this colour combo...
 This first card uses the Wood Words stamp set. I stamped in Basic Grey and coloured using an aqua painter with Calypso Coral, then after it dried I used a blender pen to go back in and add more coral to accent to the watercoloured flowers. I did also add a few (sneaky) Garden Green leaves too ;-)
 This sentiment from Better Together, I do love this font.
TIP: Carefully roll your die cut shape in an ink pad to make it pop on a card.
 Finish with a few sequins for some subtle bling.
 Now, this second card uses the spotlight technique with the little wreath from At Home With You.
 I stamped the wreath repeatedly across the card front and then die cut a heart using the Sweet and Sassy framelits before colouring the images in the heart shape using my blender pens.
TIP: Blender pens are great for colouring really little images like this.
 Wrap a little ribbon around the edge before glueing it down onto a coral card base. Finish by adding the heart, slightly off set, with dimensionals so you can see a little pop of coral and you're done!
And once more together to finish today :-)
Well, it's been a picture heavy post today so if you are still reading, I congratulate you! And many thanks for stopping by today. Please do stop by the challenge blog to see what the other DT members have made and I'm sure you'll be inspired to create something so I'll look forward to seeing what you make using these colours!

Oh So Eclectic and Totally Tabs makes a Happy Wife Card!

Happy Saturday to you!
I have had a busy week here again and tomorrow I'm off to Yorkshire for a couple of days to make cards with friends :-) I can't wait! Next week is going to be fun too as I have been chosen to be on a design team for a brand new challenge blog Inspire.Create.Challenges. This is fortnightly challenge blog with lots of fun themes (I can promise you, I've seen the first four!) with lots of talented ladies on the DT sure to inspire you! I do hope you will join us starting Wednesday, however you can go and meet the DT this week HERE.
But, even before all of that I have lots to share with you here! I wanted to make this card as soon as I got my hands on the Totally Tabs! For this card I teamed it with Oh So Eclectic. Such fun, see.....
 The sentiment in the set says "Happy Life" so I inked it with a marker and missed off the 'L 'the first time, then inked it all the second time to make it say this - a sentiment all partners should know ;-)
 So, it's a tad tricky to tell from the photos but I made the front of the card narrower than the back to allow for the tab and so it would still fit in a regular envelope.
 I do love the embossed diamond shape in the thinlits pack for the Oh So Eclectic set.
All product links at the end of this post.
Well, I was going to take the dog out for a run in the forest but the heavens have opened (again), looks like he'll have to wait and I'll go colour!
Hope you have a great Saturday!
Thanks for looking today :-)
