Time for a BEAUTIFUL Flower to INSPIRE in this Challenge + Video!

by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese and I'm so excited to host the February 2021 Inspiration Challenge. This month's colors make me so very happy and I couldn't wait to start creating!

I was inspired by the photo and the colors today.  I thought it would be great to use just one bloom and I chose the Craft-A-Flower: Lily.

Next I created a Rounded Rectangles border and added leaves from the Just Leaves Die Set.

Finally, for the sentiment I used the Tranquility Rose Stamp Set and a Simple Greetings Die.

I decided to film as I created and you can watch the video here or in HD on YouTube.

I hope that you join the fun challenge and get inky! Our Design Team and I look forward to checking out what you created! Thank you for stopping by!

That was such a lovely card that you made. I don’t usually like die cut flowers but what you did with it and the colors used made it breathtaking. I have done swatches for my alcohol markers and it has saved me many hours plus quite a bit of ink. That way I don’t have to use a scratch piece of paper to get the right color. HMMM! Swatch my inks. I heard doing cardstock was good, also and using a binder ring to hold them together. Things to do during a pandemic.

I also have my markers swatched and I agree it really takes the ‘guess work’ out of choosing colours and it’s exactly the same with inks, and it’s great if you want to see what a couple of colours look like next to each other too… although I do have mine on A4 sheets and this makes i a little more difficult to do that….. so I just bend my cardstock lol. I didn’t want to make my system to fancy because then I wouldn’t do it so a simple stamp in a pre prepared Atlenew downloaded sheet worked perfectly for me. (and my Mum actually updated for me the last time it was done, she is sooo cool!)

Such a beautiful card and color combo! I created a card for this challenge, but as I read through the rules, I realized that I don’t have a blog. Is there any way I can still enter my card into the challenge with just a photo? If not, no problem. It was fun to create :-)
