We are in the home stretch now... This challenge was called Inspiration is Everywhere. You needed to look in your home for inspiration for your project. Well since I live down south in Louisiana, I am in LSU Tiger country. I have a pretty wall hanging that has a fleur de lis with a tiger print in it. And since Football season is right around the corner I decided to make a card for my brother. I discovered that I don't have any sports themed stamps, so I went with one from PBD's Simply Everything set.
here is my inspiration photo
Go Wild! In Challenge 10 we can use a animal print or an animal to create our project. I know a sweet little boy who loves monkeys that has a birthday coming up soon, so this card will be perfect. The monkey cut is from Lettering Delights and the sentiment is from the PBD Jungle Fever stamp set. And the monkey is on an action wobble, so he is extra fun!
Whew! all caught up.. now to wait for the next challenge to be posted...
Buttons!! I couldnt decide what I wanted to do with buttons, so I made 2 simple cards. I must say these challenges are giving me a reason to use some my more everyday sentiments. Both of these are from the Believe in Yourself stamp set.
Now onto Challenge 10...
Challenge 8 was to use ribbon. I must admit, I took the easy way out on this one with the ribbon. I just couldn't come up with an idea for it. So I used ribbon to hang this cute little sign from the Nursery Tails Imagine cartridge.
Onto challenge 9...
Sketch challenge. I decided to keep on making cards, so I altered the sketch a smidge for that. I love using blue and green when I make cards.
I used the Capture Life PBD stamp set for my banner and sentiment.
Onto challenge 7...
OMBRE! I have always wanted to make an ombre card and a chevron card. So I decided to combine the two. But I put a different spin on it. I used a chevron shape from Silhouette and then used the fill gradient to color in each line of the chevron with different colors. So I have a rainbow ombre chevron! Yes, yes, I know I accidentally mixed up the yellow and orange colors. I tried to move them, but they were STUCK down. I used a PBD sentiment from the Faith stamp set.
Doesn't it look cool!? I kept the rest of the card simple.
Onto Challenge 6...
Alrighty, onto Challenge 2 - your favorite holiday. Mine would have to be Easter. I love Spring and I love what Easter represents - new beginnings and resurrection. I was also born on Easter Sunday!
I used the imagine to print the cute little birds and nest and the sentiment is from Hoppy Easter.
Onto to challenge 3!
Today over at Pink by Design, they are celebrating their 2 yr anniversary by having a day full of challenges. The first challenge started at 8 am CST and was to create a home decor item using PBD stamps.
I used the Crop til You Drop stamp set to decorate a glass jar from Hobby Lobby. I am going to use this to collect spare change to support my "stamp habit" at PBD.
Sorry about the lousy pictures, but my camera got smushed on vacation and I am having to use my phone. I decorated each side with Lush Turquoise rhinestones and ribbon and a flower that my daughter made for the top. Thanks for looking.
