First off is this card here and below from Aimes (Amy Wanford) who was herself inspired by the work of someone else. Such a stunning CAS card!
And here are two cards that I created in a similar style. Just love the contrast between the background colour and the white die cut, especially on the purple card. I'd been wanting to use this Spellbinders D-Lite floral border die for a while and this seemed the perfect opportunity. Also I couldn't resist adding the tiny butterflies.
I found the inspiration for my next cards when taking part in Uniko Studio's August release blog hop - not a difficult thing to find as it was just bursting with ideas. It was Ardyth, their guest designer, that particularly caught my eye and I was soon hooked on her amazing and talented style. Her Christmas card found here and below is so stunning in its simplicity that I just had to give it a go.
I dug out some very very old wooden stamps that were my first ever stamp purchase and then got hidden away as I couldn't think how to use them - well that's changed now! I added a few sequins to help the flow of the card and I was well pleased with the result.
Having got the Christmas card spirit it was necessary to make another card. So I used Ardyth's birthday card shown here and below as the basis for my card.
For my card I used a sheet of Christmas paper cut into strips and then added a tiny bit of bling scattered between. The banner is a stamp and matching die from Clearly Besotted, another brilliant source of ideas and inspiration.
Well that's about all for this first show and share, hope you enjoyed looking.
