Even if you decided not to or are unable to play along you can still blog hop along with those who are playing along to find TONS of AMAZING INSPIRATION!! =)
So here was the Trigger photo for this week~
I wanted to create several different takes on this so here is the first card~
I wanted to use the Large Fabric Background stamp by Hero Arts for my card background so I stamped it with versamark ink onto pink cardstock and then embossed it with clear embossing powder to lock in the pink color of the cardstock behind the embossing powder. Then I used several distress ink colors (Rusty Hing, Spiced Marmalade, and Wild Honey) to color the rest of the card background orange like the wall paper in the trigger photo!! I LOVE the way it turned out!! Then I used a metal die from My Favorite Stamps and cut it from gold cardstock. I wanted it to mimic the headboard in the trigger photo!! I used the fabric paper from Amy Tangerine and added the ribbon edging the both sides and then added the frame on top!! I then stamped a sentiment from the My Mind's Eye stamp set and used pop dots to attach it to the frame for some added interest!!
I LOVE the way my first card turned out!!
My next card looks like this~
Again I used the Large Fabric Background stamp from Hero Arts, but this time instead of embossing with a clear embossing powder I used Rose Moire'. It is a pink with gold mixed in it and it was PERFECT for this challenge!! =)
I then cut out several border strips from a gold cardstock (My Favorite Things Die).
I staggered them just alittle so that they would fit together like a puzzle. I backed those strips with a turquoise piece of cardstock and then I added some May Arts Grosgrain ribbon and then I cut out an open doily die from My Favorite Things.
I then ran the Amy Tangerine fabric paper through my sizzix and cut a doily so I would have a place for the sentiment. LOVING the way that the cards turned out!! =)
THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
