Inkspirational #177-Word Prompt

Hi All

Our last challenge of the year at Inkspirational and this time we are asking you to CASE (copy and share everything) one of your own cards for 2018 or another crafter's card. Time to celebrate us all!

Gosh this was a hard one as there have been so many inspiring cards I have seen this year but opted for teamie and good friend Nonni's card

Here is my take:

Here is Nonni's amazing card:

You can see it on her blog here.

All products here are from STAMPlorarions. I have actually used the same die as Nonni but just used the little red hearts you get when you cut the die and made a very CAS design of her card.

Nonni actually sent this to me and I just loved it and it seemed just the right card to CASE.

Pop on over to Inkspirational and see what the team have made.
Then time to get CASEing!

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
