Here’s an inspiration from Beate at SCS.  I normally don’t look at what everybody else submits before I start to work on something, but I did this time.  In the Gallery, everyone had such beautiful cards, & I was a bit intimidated, but lesson learned, just go for it.

Here’s the inspiration from Coldwater Creek of Jo Moulton’s Poppies Picture:

I loved the pin striping of the red, against the mohogany looking frame, so I used the new Riding Hood Red Colour CS & masked it & then brayered it with Riding Hood Red Ink.  The Black CS was actually some old packaging of Cuttlebug embossing folders, cut out with a square punch, moved around to create a window.  I didn’t wait until the glue dried to take the picture (heading outside with the kids) so it looks a bit wet still.  

Stamps:  Wonderful Words, Brayer, Riding Hood Red Ink & CS, Brayer, Flower, Rhinestone brad, Vellum PP, Black Packaging from cuttlebug embossing folder, Square Punch.

This is a technique from SplitCoaststampers called “Rolling with Marbles“. Thanks, Beate for the instructions!

Here’s my take on ‘Rolling Marbles’. I used Garden Green CS, because I used Ballet Blue Ink & Wild Wasabi Ink (apparently when mixed makes Garden Green! Who knew!)

The Circles on the side is a technique I learned from JeNN (using the slit punch & then using the 1″ punch). Hope you’re feelin’ better, JeNN!

EDIT: I’ve been told the link on JeNN’s website is down. Try this You Tube LINK where she demo’d how to do the scalloped circles.

Garden Green CS, 1″ circle Punch, Slit Punch, Water colour paper, dimensionals, twine, Velum, Garden Green Ink, Sponge, Coluzzle, Rhinestone Brad, Flower.

Here’s the fun Inspiration Challenge from Beate. Thanks for the fun, BEATE!

For the challenge we could use whatever moved us in the inspiration below, colour, patterns, etc.

The chosen inspiration is the ‘Paolo Bed Linens’ from the CB2 Store:

Here’s my card: You can see I was a bit rushed, evident with the maniacal glueing. Wow, didn’t realize how bad it was until I uploaded the picture. Ah well, you get the idea.

For other fun interpretations check out SplitCoaststampers BIC19.

PP: American Crafts a la Carte Pesto, Really Rust CS, Old Olive CS, Cuttlebug die cuts, Ribbon, & dimensionals.

Here’s the Martha Stewart Cake that Beate is putting out there for the BIC18 challenge:

Here’s the card I ended up with. I think this will be a thank you card for Malcolm’s teacher. Now Emma’s teacher will be tomorrow, I believe. Oh yes & pick up the gift certificates too. (put it on the list).

Thanks Beate for the fun Inspiration. (and for keeping me on top of the ‘end of year school cards’.)

For more fun interpretations check out SplitCoastStampers Be Inspired Challenge #18. Man too much fun.

I used S.U. DSP, Cuttlebug Embossing Template, Wild Wasabi Ink, Mellow Moss Ink. Eyelettes, Rick-Rack, Coluzzle templates, Corner Rounders, Flower Punch.

Here is a challenge from Beate, BiC14 uses

I love challenges that give you a guideline, rather than a specific layout. Beate’s Inspiration Challenge was open to interpretation and there are so many different ideas that could be pulled from the image below. I used the circle card & punched circles for scallops courtesy of Kristina Werner’s wonderful blog full of ideas. Beate used this as the inspiration for all stampers:

Here’s what I ended up with:

Used: Summer Sun CS, Purely Pumpkin Texture CS, Stamps: Paint Prints, Stampendous Faux Finish Quad Cube, Versa Mark, White Embossing Powder, 3/4″ Punch, flower Punch, Circle Cutter, Dimensionals, Ribbon & Corner Rounder.

This is motivated by Beate‘s Be Inspired Challenge #12. She chose a print called Tangerine Courtyard by Fabrice De Villeneuve.

Here’s the beautiful photo of what we had to go on:

Isn’t that pretty?

Well, here’s what I pulled from the print:

Inside the card (I wasn’t really pleased at how this turned out), I need to work on my ‘water colouring’. I tried to do a shadow under the chair, but it sorta just looks like a stain. Live & learn.

For some other beautiful takes on the card check out SplitCoastStampers BIC12

I used Water Colour Paper (140 heavy), Stazon Inks: Olive, Mustard, Timber Brown, as well as EE SU markers, AquaPainter, Rub Ons, Coluzzle Cutter, Brad, Velcro Adhesive, Metal Tag, Fine Vine Stamp set & the chair stamp was given to me by by Demonstrator as a Hostess appreciation. The Yellow “Shutter” pattern was from those kitchen – no slip linings that I inked up & then brayered on.

Here is another wonderful Tutorial from Beate Johns on Misting with Markers. All you do is marker on the stamp, mist lightly with water & stamp. I used Certainly Celery Ink Pad, then Mellow Moss, Sage Shadow, & Close to Cocoa Markers for the Oak Tree. (Lovely as a Tree stamp set)

The Groovy Circle Card Shape, courtesy of Kristina Werner and her fabulously addictive tutorials.

I don’t own a Coluzzle Circle cutter like Kristina so I just used the Creative Memories Circle Cutter.
