September 2018 Inspiration Challenge + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Inspiration Challenge 2018 09 02Hi, it's Therese and I'm so excited to host the September Inspiration Challenge. Today's card focuses on the Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom.

Altenew - BAF - Peony Blossom - Signature Words - Therese Calvird (card video) 1 copyMy sentiment uses the negative space from the word ‘thanks' from Signature Words Die. I used Jet Black and Pale Gray cardstocks to create this. I also added some New Day Card Kit Enamel Dots to the center of the flowers.

Oh my gosh!! how gorgeous!!! I love, LOVE the fabulous tip for stamping the images perfectly on the die cuts, it beats having to try to line the dies up after you stamped the flowers.
Thank you for sharing Therese, you always have amazing inspiration and fabulous tips for us.
Sending hugs and love.

Thank you so much Maria, I think it’s a great tip too, but I can’t take credit for it but seriously can’t remember where I initially saw it. It would have been one of the amazing papercrafters that inspire us on Youtube, and it was an ‘ah ha’ moment, but one I often forget to use lol. Have a great day my friend!
