Inspired by Stamping Challenge 63

I have had so much fun making my 3 cards for the
Inspiration Challenges over at the Inspired by Stamping Home
and here is the 3rd one which is absolutely gorgeous.


I recently purchased the hexagon embossing folder 
from Stampin' Up and to my delight the 
Inspired by Stamping hexagon stamp set fits perfectly in it. WOW.
So of course that is what I decided to do 
for this really beautiful colour combination.

I was sooooo pleased with how my card looked when I finished it.

I used - 
Cream card stock 
Various designer paper for the background and hexagons inside
Stampin' Up hexagon embossing folder
IBS Hexagon Stamp Set
IBS Crocher Trim
IBS Flower in centre

So glad you came by to see this card. Thank you so much.

Here I am again with my second card for the challenge below


I love making cards for colour challenges. They are so much fun.
The one above I thought I would go for a CAS look 
- and here it is

Again I have used white card stock as my base
Added some mottled green dp and heat embossed the images in white,
 a plain strip of brown paper (it does look black) to the top and a
piece of the same colour to the bottom with a MS punched edge.
The sentiment is from GinaK as is the stamped image 
which was inked several times.
The little flourish is from IBS All Year Wishes 2 
and I thought it a perfect finish to this card.

I have my 3rd card for the current challenges to upload so come back soon
to see the really lovely colour combination for that one.

New challenges at Inspired by Stamping (Challenge 61)

It is that time again and Joanna from Inspired by Stamping 
has some beautiful inspirational colour challenges going at present 
and I couldn't resist playing with them
I thought I would start with the first one below


and here is what I made

I used the following products on this card

White card stock as my base
Designer paper as a backing
The beautiful roses are from Inspired by Stamping Elegant Flowers
Leaves are GinaK Stippled Nature
Butterfly is GinaK Dogwood & Butterfly
Sentiment is Inspired  by Stamping All Year Wishes 2
Kaisercraft Pearls
SU ribbon.
Gell Pen.

I stamped the images onto the white card stock 
and inked and cut out an extra one to pop on the right hand side.
The butterfly is heat embossed and inked with distress inks and also popped.
Added some highlights to the lovely roses with a glitter gel pen
Finished with 3 pearls.

I am also entering this card in the current
Designer's Choice - Things with Wings challenge
over at The House that Stamps Built.

Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to,
