Inspiration Destination Challenge 6



I've got two cards to show you today as the Inspiration Destination Challenge Blog is being sponsored by Gerda Steiner and Robyn's Fetish. Here is my first card showing 'Elephant with Balloon Bird' by Gerda Steiner.

My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. The two shades of orange card are both by Papermill. I embossed the paler card with the Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of pennants before matting it on to the bright orange. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut with a Spellbinders grand classic circle, leaving the balloon to jut out over the frame. One of my new sentiments from Inkadinkado is cut with another Spellbinders die and is raised in the bottom corner. I decided to add some more animal friends and so used my Provo Craft dies to cut them in various colours.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Animals
Card Mania - Use your Dies
Crafty Cardmakers - Cut it Out
Eureka Stamps - Count Your Blessings
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Partytime Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes



Here is my second card using 'Puppy Paws' by Robyn's Fetish.




I just love dogs when they 'smile' at me, hence the sentiment. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and then cut it using a Sue Wilson Italian collection die. I made the backing paper by stamping a Sarah Beise dog stamp in Memento ink over white paper. I matted it on to Hobbycraft pearlescent green card and cut four Signature corner dies by Joanna Sheen. The card blank is, again, by Joanna Sheen. The sentiment is by Inkadinkado and after cutting with a small Spellbinder resplendent rectangle I used two shades of green Distress Ink on the edges. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Card Mania - Use your Dies
Crafty Cardmakers - Cut it Out
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes


Thanks for visiting. Hazel x

  7. Hi Hazel, thank you for choosing my card as your fave, on challenge No4 at 'Inspiration Destination' but as you'll see from the pic you have put on the blog, there is a box on top of the picture, I can send you a pic of the card to replace that one if you send me your email addy without the box as it dos'nt look too good with that on and no one can see the card, hope you don't mind me mentioning this Hazel. Hugs Jacee
