JUNE 2015 BLOG HOP CHALLENGE

Blog-hop-logo

Blog hop inspiration

The simplicity of these gray stripes paired with cream and orange flowers just speaks volumes in regards to card inspiration.  Take these colors and transform them into a classic card that captures the beauty of the photo.  Experiment with stamped flowers or die-cut florals.  Add stripes using delicate Sheer Basics striped vellum overlays or cover plates.  Let the photograph speak to you and see where it takes you!


Originally I thought I would use vellum...
I decided to use embossing paste instead!



I used my new Bloomers set!
As I was snipping the dies apart, one went airborne. 
I got on my hands and knees to no avail...
Hopefully it will show up...



Once again my literal nature came out for a inspiration photo!
I cannot seem to help it!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
Susan

  5. I'm impressed with your paste and the wonderful texture, Susan! And I don't mind that you went literal one bit (since I did, too, lol!) with this pretty card!! I hope your die shows up soon! The last time that happened to me, it had landed on its side up against the leg of my desk and it was nearly impossible to see until the light hit it just right! Hugs, Darnell

  7. OMG sounds like we've all lost a die while snipping them apart. I just found one but then couldn't remember what it went to...oh well I know where is now when I need it someday. Your card is darling and doesn't look it's missing a thing.
