Oh yes my friends, as the title to this post states, I have been inspired by the King, Brian King that is! The King of Stampin’ is the feature artist at Global Design Project this week. We were given the image below and our challenge is to CASE Brian’s card. What does CASE mean? There are many definitions of CASE (Copy And Steal Everything, Copy And Share Everything), but in this situation the definition is Copy And Selectively Edit. This means you can be inspired by ANYTHING on this card. Head over to the Global Design Project (HERE) to see our the design team have taken Brian’s card and also the players gallery.
I took the challenge to create a Winter Christmas card as I have not made many due to my Christmas always being HOT, one of those things living in Australia and we are in Summer at Christmas time. The layout, also inspired me; I have used the silhouette images of trees and a reindeer on a hill in place of Brian’s Penguin’s and greeting placement was also inspired from Brian. Snowflakes become stars on my creation. I am loving my card, and loved getting all inky creating the background.
I hope you have all your Christmas cardmaking under control, we are just under 1 month until Christmas. Here are the items used, simple click for more info on the product and to start shopping online and your order will be shipped Australia wide.
With 38 days until Christmas day arrives Global Design Project have stepped in to help inspire you to create something for Christmas by making that the theme for this weeks challenge. You will be blown away when you see some of the Design Team creations HERE.
I went for a Christmas card which looks kind of boring in comparison to some of the AMAZING projects that were created. With that being said, I still love my card. It is very clean and simple, but kind of cute. The shocking image is from Festive Firplace Photopolymer stamp set, I have stamped them in Basic Black ink on Whisper White then coloured the image with Real Red and Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Markers direct to the cardstock then I went back over the image with the same market to add a shadow which I think makes the card.
Here is the inside of my card, again I have kept it very simple adding a greeting and another stamped stocking.
Here are the items I used in the card, I did use Pear Pizzazz Stampin’ Write Marker but they are not sold separately so I have listed Old Olive as a replacement.
We all love a sale but a ‘stamp sale’ is just that bit better. A selection of stamps have been reduced by 20% until November 20th check them out HERE .
Welcome. It is lovely to have you stop by my corner of the internet world. You have arrived in perfect time for the INKspired blog hop, we have 10 cards linked into each other and all featuring the same sketch. If you arrived from Barbara’s blog you are already on the journey. I am the sketch creator; however, each time when I go to create my card I ask myself “what was I thinking” the three banners are tricky to work with.
Not my greatest work, but here is my card. The joy is cut from Red Glitter paper using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies. I have added a little silver thread and a few silver foil stars to add a little interest.
The next INKspired Artist to visit is Cherie Davies
Happy first of November, can I put up my Christmas tree yet? I love my Christmas tree, but I know I need to wait until at least the first of December. This weekend I started writing in some of the Christmas cards that I have already made and here I was thinking that I had made so many but when I gathered them together I am WAY off.
Today’s creation I have to share is linked into the INKspired sketch blog hop, it is a smaller hop then normal this round but still packed with amazing cards that are all based on the same sketch that I team for the team, you may already be on the hop arriving from Barbara Williams or otherwise known as my Mum.
What do to think of the sketch? It had mixed reviews from the INKspired Artists. I have been excited for this sketch to roll around and play. I had a few different ideas rolling around in my head but after discovering I need so many more Christmas cards, a whole new idea was born. I pulled out my Little Letter Thinlit dies to create JOY, circle Thinlits to cut the music note paper which is from the Home for Christmas DSP and the holly is fussy cut from a design of printed paper in Season of Cheer DSP range.
Over the letters and berries (on the holly) I applied a double coat of Crystal Effects.
The next stop on the INKspired blog hop is the wonderful Lissa Carter.
Here are the items used to order online.
