Welcome to another Tuesday Inspiration day. Inspiration is all around us, and it’s so interesting to see how a group of designers can all start with the same image, and be inspired by it in so many different ways. My challenge was to use the following colors on a card and here’s what I came up with.
“Love Pieces Of You”
I know Valentine’s Day is over, but we can still celebrate love regardless. Today’s card is bright and simple using the miniatures from the Baby Boy collection. The miniatures have a variety of different shapes to play with and add great texture to your project. I love that you can use the greens in the collection and turn it into something totally different. I just love it!
Sunshine Happiness collection: Popsicle Kisses, Miniatures, Play Date; Baby Boy collection: Miniatures; Baby Girl collection: Miniatures
It’s a happy year so far! We celebrated love, a President’s birthday and leap year. What more can you ask for? It’s a joyous day and what a better way to celebrate than to be joyful of today. Here’s another great use on Bella Blvd’s papers. I’ve mixed up the collections and the simple bright patterns make it so easy to use
Sunshine Happiness collection: Miniatures, Popsicle Kisses; Baby Boy: Heaven Scent, Wild About You; Baby Girl: Miniatures; Sophisticates collection: Pink-Red High Five Alphabets; Baby Blooms a Bella: Rossini
Thanks for visiting, have a great day!
Border Strip papers are right up there with the Cute Cuts in my book! You get so much on just one sheet of paper! When I see these sheets I immediately want to cut it apart, but you don’t have to. You could use the whole sheet as a background. A little too busy? Tone it down with some paint or spray. Is there one strip right in the middle you want to use? Cut it out and use it! Border Strips are also great for cards. You can get a little bit of pattern without having to cut into a full sheet.
“So Happy For You” card
For this card I cut out the flowers from the pattern and adhered it in clusters alongside the Bella Blooms. The technique layering the border strips against each other using different patterns and clusters.
Baby Girl: Borders, Daddy’s Girl; Baby Boy: Cute Cuts; Unity Stamps: So Happy For You; Baby Blooms a Bella: Rossini, Champagne, Azzini
Today’s challenge is to use the border papers creatively and it was a task indeed. I think my take on the challenge is simple, but also something different. I used different patterns as my borders and cut the paper according to the design so it differs from a straight cut.
