Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Mother’s Day Card

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week is a beautiful china tea-cup decorated with a gorgeous pink flower.

The colour of the teacup inspired my card and I found a stunning flower ribbon that was a perfect adornment.







Here’s the inspiration image:







I hope you like my card! :)

Stampin’ Up! Australia - You Are My Sunshine

Hi!

The inspiration image at The Card Concept's challenge this week is the lovely lyric “You Are My Sunshine”. I sing this song to my boys before bed every night - I love that song!

One of my friends asked me to make a card for a colleague who is leaving work in a few weeks. I also happened to have worked with this person and she is AWESOME!

So I knew I had to use this stamp for her card....but since it is a card from an office full of people, I needed to correct the grammar!

I used my rotary stamp to stamp an ‘OUR’ onto black cardstock, which I then heat embossed in white.

It’s not entirely true to my style of Clean & Graphic since I have a number of layers on the card...but it took on a life of its own in the end. :)



Here’s the inspiration image:






I hope you like my card! :)

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:

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
