First up is a card I made for the Paper Smooches Spark Trend Watch challenge to be inspired by this collage of photos and use gold on a project.
I pulled out the gold glitter embossing powder and some shimmer cardstock to make this card.
I did try to stamp & emboss on a white shimmer star, but the embossing powder was not co-operating, so I ended up using regular cardstock for the center star.
The embossing powder worked just fine on the vellum banner that finishes off the sentiment.
Next up are a couple of cards for this week's Tuesday Trigger: All Sweetness & Light at Moxie Fab World. Cath has done it again with an amazing inspiration photo. I'd LOVE to have this bedding in my room, but I think it is a little too feminine for my husband.
I was inspired by the colors, the font on the "A" on the nightstand and the white pompoms on the duvet cover.
The design of this card came from this week's retrosketch.
Because I used the negative of my letter die cut on this card, I had the word "thank" sitting on my desk begging to be used, so I made another quick card for the Tuesday Trigger.
Once again, the colors are a big part of the inspiration, but on this card I embossed the main panel to mimic the colorful quilt in the photo.
With a number of scraps on my desk and a graduation party to attend this weekend, I couldn't help making another card for the Make It Monday: Flagged Borders challenge from Dawn McVey at Capture the Moment.
The sentiment is from PTI's Birthday Bash Sentiments stamp set and the flags are cut with the Sketched Shapes dies.
I hope you were able to have some creative fun today!
Thanks for stopping by,
