Inspire. Create challenge #54

And welcome to a new Inspire. Create challenge post!
I made this for my son’s birthday recently and it perfectly ties in with this fortnights challenge which is “Die Cutting”
For the background I’ve used the Piece Of Cake stamp set creating an ombré effect in blues. I started with the darkest night of navy at the bottom (cake stands) then added blueberry bushel cakes, with the next cake stand layer stamped in seaside spray and I topped them with balmy blue cakes and candles...

 Because our ink pads are water based I could use my blends to colour them in, adding even more of an ombré effect to the card!
 Then I topped the images with a die cut name and the all important numbers on a vellum circle!
Tip: colour whisper white card in an ombré effect before die cutting.
Finish with a few glitter enamel spots and something rhinestones before layering onto navy card and then a white card base and that’s it, done! For more inspiring ideas from the DT head to the challenge blog HERE. And we’d love to see your die cut cards too so don’t forget to share!

Sketch challenge for I.C.C #50 using New Wonders stamp set.

 And welcome to this fortnights challenge for Inspire. Create. Challenges and this time we have a wonderful sketch to inspire you!
I chose to flip the sketch, well a large part of it anyway by making a landscape card instead of a portrait one. That's the great thing about sketches, just flip them to suit your needs. As long as the basic elements are there (for a challenge) then you're all good and if you are just creating for you, well as long as it helps you create then great!
OK, back to this card, I used the new "Host only" stamp set New Wonders to make this...
I stampd with tiny stars from Little Twinkle using Versamark on the new Soft Seafoam card for the background.
Topped with a Blends coloured fairy from the New Wonders stamps.
Pop in a sentiment and a few adhesive sequins that's it! A simple and fun card!
So, if you'd like to see what the rest of the DT have made head over to the ICC blog and that's where you can add your creations too ;-)
Thanks so much for looking today :-)

Inspire. Create. Challenges - Colour Challenge #49

ANd welcome to this fortnights ICC challenge. This fortnight we have a fun colour challenge for you...
 Now, you probably realise, especially if you visit here often, that these colours are not ones I would usually use, if I'm honest. Having said that I really enjoyed this challenge, and well, isn't that what a challenge is all about? Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone?
I was also dead chuffed with the card I ended up with using the Little Elephant stamps and punch combo...
 I started with a watercolour wash of Pool Party ink which came out really dark as I used the re-inker rather than just ink from the pad,
 Then I stamped the larger elephant in the three colours before punching them out and stacking them using dimensionals.
 I added a couple of card tags to the top and stapled some pool party twine over them before layering and adding a sentiment.
And that's it! What do you think? I really like it and so I am going to try using some of the colours I usually overlook a little more often now!
Head to the ICC blog to see what wonderful creations the rest of the DT have made and why not join in with us too?

Ride with Me for Inspire. Create. Challenge #48

And welcome to another Inspire. Create. Challenge.
This fortnight is the best and easiest challenge in the universe (IMO) as it's probably the most made card by anyone - Birthdays! Any birthday card or project will be eligible to entered (see all the guidelines HERE) and we'd love to see your creations!
I made this card using the new Ride with Me bundle for our grandsons birthday recently and well, it's just perfect for this challenge, see...
I die cut Jacksons name (three times) with the new Hand Written Prose dies and coloured the top layer with my Blends for an ombre look before layering the letters together for more impact.
 I coloured the truck and balloons with Blends too and added a little stamped star from the Little Twinkle stamp set, topping them with sequins, of course!
And that's that, all done. I hope you share your Birthday makes with us on the challenge blog and if you're looking for some inspiration please do head over to the ICC blog for tons of inspiration from the very clever DT :-)

Sketch Challenge using Bloom and Grow for Inspire. Create. Challenges

And welcome to this weeks Inspire. Create Challenge post. Can you believe we are on challenge #47?!
This week we have this wonderfully versatile sketch to work with...
And I knew I wanted to make a stamped and coloured wreath with some of the gorgeous flowers from the Bloom and Grow bundle! What a great set this is, especially if you love colouring :-)
 Once I'd coloured the flowers this sentiment just seemed perfect for the image, especially as we are heading straight into wedding season, right?
I layered the floral image onto Purple Posy card then heat embossed the sentiment in gold onto vellum, wrapping it behind the main panel to hide the glue. Finishing with a few sequins.
I am seriously loving colouring with my Blends right now, possibly helped by treating myself to a few new colours recently ;-)
What are you going to make for this challenge? Head to the challenge blog to check out the inspiration from the rest of the DT. It's a really great sketch and we've all made very different cards...
