BIC # 5 - For You Inspired
Hello everybody!!! Hope you are having a great start into this wonderful Tuesday morning?!?!
As you know Tuesday is Beate's new "Be Inspired Challenge"....the photo on the left is the "Inspiration" piece for today's BIC5 - isn't it fabulous???
When I first saw it - I was thinking of button's, but I didn't have any that would have made a great card....and then I came up with this card.
I used Whisper White CS as my base and adhered a Basic Black CS on top - which I have cut like a wave on top with my Hobby Blade and basically used it as a border for where I wanted to place the flowers.....
The Pumpkin Pie and Real Red flowers are from the new Occasions Mini Brochure "Die-cut Blooms" on page #14.
After you have used a couple of the Die-cut flowers - you have created a wonderful template to make large or small flowers.....and that's the part I really like, because now you can make flowers in any color you like!!!
The Wild Wasabi and Blue Bayou flowers were traced with a pencil on the inside of the template and then cut out!!!
The Basic Black and Blue Bayou circles in the middle of the flowers were punched out with the 1/2" Circle Punch. The other colors are again from the "Die-cut Blooms" set.
I added a clear Rhinestone from the new "Pretties Kit" in the center of all the flowers. To create a 3-D effect....I placed some Stampin Dimensionals on the larger flowers and behind the circles.
Then I stamped the sentiment from the "Fundamental Phrases" with Pumpkin Pie and Wild Wasabi Ink . The sentiment was punched out with the "small oval" Punch and then placed behind the new SU "Styled Silver" label holder that is also featured in the new Occasion's Mini Brochure!!!
The Ribbon is the 1/4" Grosgrain Pumpkin Pie from SU and I wrapped it around the card and attached it with two small clear Rhinestone Brads.
Hope we inspired you and you will create something too!!! Please check out all the other ladies for their inspiration cards!!! ~TFL~
