Get Inspired! This Week's Creative Challenge

Hey Folks!  Twice a month,  my amazing West Coast Creators group gets together for a creative challenge.  We are faced with a challenge theme and share our creations.  It’s absolutely amazing and inspiring to see what everyone comes up with.  I’d like to share my projects with you.  I hope that it will get you inspired to create too. 

The Challenge
2018 Aug B
The Result

I used the Stitched All Around stamp set from Stampin’ Up to create this card.  I just love the stitching details of the matching dies.  It adds so much interest and pretty texture to the die cut.

For the sentiment, I used various shades of the challenge colours to achieve the ombre effect.  The Stamparatus helped with the positioning, as I needed to stamp 3 times in the same place, but with different ink colours.  You can also use the Stampin’ Write markers to achieve the look as well and stamp just once.  To create the background, just ink and stamp three times (one below the other) without re-inking to create a faded look.

A few leaf cutouts, polka dot ribbon and navy twine gave it the finishing touch.

I  hope you enjoyed this week’s creative challenge post.  Please let me know if you have any feedback or want more information. Until next time, create with purpose!
