Inkspirational #176

Hi All

Time for a new challenge at Inkspirational.

This time it is our photo challenge and here is the card I made:

The photo that inspired this:

Obviously it was the gold feather that was my main inspiration but also if you look closely at the church candle you will see gold wire in tiny strips-this gave me the idea of using score lines.
These gorgeous die cut feathers were from my crafty friend Sarah-check out Sarah's online shop Folksy. She has amazing and unique stencils.


I will enter this into:

AAA cards-3 of something-3 score lines and 3 enamel gold dots.
Watercooler Wednesday-All about Occasions-you celebrate occasions! And happy 200th challenge!

Hello from London!

Hello all from London and me!

Felt good to make a card not for Christmas!

For the challenges:

CASology-North....London is in the Northern Hemisphere.....had no idea for a card for this challenge and then pop-this idea came to me in a flash!

CAS(E) this Sketch-my lay out is based on the sketch.

Die from STAMPlorations and stamp from Clearly Besotted Stamps

I will also enter this into:

The Library Challenge-based on the book 'From Time to Time'-cover inspired.

Have a good day x

Here I have used their stamp Background Blocks Halftone. I stamped it in delicata gold ink.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Chrissie. I have followed Chrissie for many years and here designs are outstanding. She is an inspiration. Check out her blog-Simply One of a Kind-and you will see why I say this!

Sending Smiles!

Hi All

Sending you all smiles today!

Based on the sketch for CAS(E) this Sketch 
And the colours at Color Throwdown

I have used the fishtail tags from My Favorite Things-we won't talk about how long it took me to get the layers in an order and colour combo I liked!

I can't remember where the 'smile' die is was in my stash!

Have a fun day x

Golden Florals

Hi All

The 'Shades of Gold' challenge at CASual Fridays caught my eye this week.
I especially loved Ishani's card here and she inspired me to have a play-thank you Ishani!

I was a bit stuck on a layout but The Fusion Card Challenge sketch helped me out here:

I know, not CAS!!

A lot of gold embossing here but it was fun to do. And I can't remember the last time I embossed on vellum. The dies are cut from vellum and some old stash gold card.

All products here are from CAS-ual Fridays except the stitched die which is from STAMPlorations

Have a great week!

Hi All

I am very excited to say I am Guest Designing today for the wonderful challenge AAA Card Challenge.

I was thrilled to be asked-thank you!

Here is my card using the Penny and Black Nativity Die

And the challenge:

I went all white using some glitter white card for the die and strips of card I used as the border.

I do love how this turned out!

Pop on over to AAA Challenges and see what a delight all the Design Team cards are-you will be inspired!

Enjoy this fun challenge!
