Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! You’ve Got This

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week is an beautiful spray of purple flowers which led me to my stamp selection of ‘You’ve Got This’ - a gorgeous flower that lends itself to colouring in!



Here are the essentials:

  • I was inspired by the purple tones of the flowers in the image so I chose ‘Wisteria Wonder’ Blendabilities to colour my stamped image. 
  • Flower stem is Wild Wasabi
  • The neutral background is stamped in Sahara Sand
  • I was also inspired by TGIF challenges to create a Mother’s Day card 
Here’s the inspiration image:




Here’s the info from TGIF Challenges:



I hope you like my card! :)


Cheers

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Christmas Card

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week is an elegant vintage centrepiece in vanilla & black tones. It is also the 2nd year anniversary for The Card Concept Challenge...big congratulations to Lesley & the team! :)



Here are the essentials:

  • I was inspired by the print music in the image so I used a sheet from a retired Christmas paper - it’s the sheet music for Silent Night. :)
  • The colours of the image set the palette for my card - vanilla & black. 
  • I used Black Satin ribbon just like the one in the image.
  • I took inspiration from CASE This Sketch for the layout and Merry Monday for the theme of my card. 

Here’s the inspiration image.....








I hope you like my card! :)


Cheers

Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up Beautiful Ride

Hi!

Welcome to this week's Artful Stampers Blog Hop and welcome from Annette’s blog.




Here are the essentials:

  • I watercoloured the bug image on watercolour paper...Marina Mist for the windows, Perfect Plum for the running board, Rose Red for the main body and Smoky Slate for the wheels, tyres, door handle and side mirror. I also went over the wheel spokes, mirror and handle with a Smoky Slate marker for definition. 
  • Using up scraps! I found some retired Smoky Slate DSP, a starburst-shaped Perfect Plum die cut, some Rose Red seam binding and a piece of Naturals Chevron ribbon so I set about  making these work with the bug. 
  • Anatomy of bling! So....the bling here consists of the Botanical Garden flower jewel in the top left corner, rhinestone jewels in the middle of the wheels, and 3 sets of twin rhinestones dotted around the card. 
  • Teeny tiny details....the “Beautiful Ride” stamp set has the most adorable miniature flower so I put that in the corner of the back door hinge and echoed it on the sentiment banner. CUTE! 
  • The layout was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches this week. 
  • As I am looking at this photo, I’m thinking that some Wink of Stella would look fabulous on the car so I’m off to add that now! :)
Here are our colours for this week:

Here’s the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches (I took some artistic licence with the sentiment placement - I couldn’t make it work up there!)
