This week Betty Wright is our host. I am challenging you to get inspired from Kim Poloson's posters. Search through the many posters to find an inspiration piece. As with all inspiration pieces, there may be one or two things in the photo that inspires you whether it is an element, layout, or color scheme, or you may want to recreate the whole look. There are so many wonderful ones to choose from you will probably want to play several times. Make sure you include a link in your write up as to which one you chose and why. We would love to see what you create!!!
First up this week is our challenge host Betty Wright. For my inspiration pick, I chose Blooming Paris II . I am using the newly released Waterlilies set. For the large pink portion of the card, I used a soft distressed piece of solid basicgray paper. I am using the black line Jenni Bowlin paper for my center text background section. I stamped one of the sentiments in this set several times to recreate the look of the inspiration piece. I colored and cut out my water lily flower using the soon to be released Spring Greens, Fields and Hollyhock copic color collections. I finished my card with an ivory organdy ribbon bow.
Up next this week is Cindy Haffner. Cindy chose as her inspiration pick the Bel Bouquet IV. She is using the Spring Ephemerals set. This is a wonderful solid line stamp set that looks perfect in color or in silhouette. Cindy has combined some rich sponge detailing with this lovely set to create some depth and a vintage look. I love how Cindy used the Spellbinders label four and sponged within the frame to create added dimension and texture to the card. Beautifully done, Cindy!!!
Next up this week is Connie McCotter. Connie chose Back to the Garden I as her inspiration pick. Connie is using Butterfly Moments and Flourished Words stamp sets. I love how Connie recreated the look of the poster using some wonderful patterned designer papers. Of course, the highlight of the card is her wonderfully colored butterfly. The sponge distressing just adds so much richness to the overall look. Just beautiful, Connie!!!
The next card is Dee Jackson. Dee chose Le Jardin Secret II as her inspiration pick. She is using Peony, Thank You, and Autumn Flourishes sets to recreate the look in the inspiration. I love how she used the solid leaves from the Autumn Flourishes set in a tone on tone. The thank you script sentiment saying is beautfiul stamped at an angle. I love the how she cut out and colored the peony and used it to finish the the look. Of course, all of the sponge detailing really adds to the overall feel of this card. Wonderfully done, Dee!!!
Next, is Kimberly Crawford. As her inspiration pick, Kimberly chose Garden Shadow I. Kim is using the DIY Topiaries, the newly released Life, Love and Lemons for the sentiment, and Autumn Flourishes sets for her card. I love the Autumn Flourishes image used to recreate the look of the flourished elements in the poster. The punch borders and score line detailing along with the sponge distressing puts some fabulous finishing touches on this card. The topiary image with sentiment are just perfect to finish the look. Terrific card, Kim!!!
Last this week is Silke Ledlow . Silke chose Tuscan Fruits II as her inspiration pick. She is using the newly released Life, Love and Lemons stamp set. This is a fabulous new fruit set. You can choose whether to make them lemons or limes. I also love the terrific sentiments that come in this set. I love the clean, simplicity of the poster Silke chose. She did a wonderful job recreating the look with this set. I love the overall colors, patterns, and coloring!!! Lovely card, Silke!!!
