The Card Concept #94- Inspiration on Wheels

Happy Wednesday friends! I am so excited to be joining The Card Concept design team! I can't wait to show you my cards and see how YOU are inspired.

If you're not familiar with it, every two weeks we post our inspiration photo challenge and we hope you will join in with us and create a card for our challenge gallery.  Feel free to use any of the styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.  We want you to have fun with our inspiration!

Super fun, right?!

Here's the inspiration: 


And here's my card: 

I created my Clean and Layered card using the stamp set, City Girls: Book Life from The Ton
My inspiration came from the gorgeous colour of the bike and the lovely bouquet. The main image is stamped centrally and coloured in with Distress Markers and watercoloured. The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black cardstock and adhered with foam tape. A few clear sequins dot the bouquet of flowers for some added sparkle. 

Thanks so much for stopping in today and now head on over to The Card Concept blog where you can see inspiration from the rest of my fabulous teammates! I can't wait to see what you create for this challenge. I'm so excited to be a part of this team!

Inspired by All the Little Things #86- FINAL challenge

Welcome to another Inspired by All the Little Things challenge! Before we get started with my card this week, we have an announcement to make from the team: this will be our last inspiration for the Inspired By All the Little Things challenge. We'll miss it! 

On to the inspiration...

I was inspired by the colours, the metallic elements and the geometric design of the feathers. 

I loosely watercoloured a panel and glued it behind a cover plate from My Favorite Things, then adhered the entire thing to a white card base. The die cut sentiment from Simon Says Stamp was cut three times and glued together, then heat embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder. Another little sentiment from My Favorite Things was embossed with white powder on a black cardstock strip and adhered to the card.

Inspired by All the Little Things #85

Welcome to more fabulous inspiration from the Inspired by All the Little Things team!

I'm a sucker for rustic looking floral arrangements. This inspiration photo is PERFECT for me because of that, AND because I have a ton of wood grain patterned paper to use up, haha. 

I used some gorgeous ephemera from the Crate Paper Flourish collection. I tend to buy these packages and then never use them up but this collection will be the exception. SO darn pretty. The florals were layered over top of the wood grain paper and the sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Banner in Bloom was adhered using foam tape over top of all of that. A few gold sequins finish it off.

This is a bi-weekly challenge so the challenge and winners posts will publish 
on the first and third Saturdays of every month (There will be no challenge if there is a fifth Saturday in a month). Our guest designer will stay on for the entire month and play along in both challenges. 

We would love it if you played along with us. I can't wait to see what you create! Link up your creation at the main Inspired By blog.
