Hello!  And welcome to a new challenge here on the Be Inspired Challenge Blog!  Lisa here with my take on this super sweet inspiration.  This time I've used the Good Point and Speak Easy Stamp Sets to create this CAS card...

Hi there! Tara here with my happy little card for this month's inspiration challenge! I love polka dots! It is impossible to create something that is not happy with them! I used Birds of a Feather and Spotted stamps sets to create this fun card!

Hi, Anni here! The red polka dots made me think of christmas - don't ask me why! ;) I used the sets Tag-alongs and Spotted for the background!

Hello, Emily here!  Here's my take on BIC #51 challenge.  Polka dot tag and red clothespin are my inspired elements.  I used Background Basics to created the polka dot tag, then i distressed with Barn Door ink.

Kasia here to share my take on this challenge! The colour scheme and polka dot pattern were just too wonderful to resist. I combined a BUNCH of different sets to make this, Priceless Joy, Trees Company, Tiny Treasures and Tag-Alongs.

Hi, it's Christine. For my take on this challenge I used the freebie butterfly along a sentiment from Speak Easy.

BE Inspired Challenge #50 - RE-Inspired

Chrissie here and I love the cutie car from Got It Covered! I stamped the sentiment from Speak Easy onto vellum and used a stencil with sparkly watercolors for the background.

Hello!  Tracy here with my card using the Wish Big stamp set. I paper pieced the present with patterned paper and colored in the ribbon with Copic markers.

Hello, Sabine here. This is my card for the fun BIC #50. I used the cool green for my bird from Birds of a Feather. She has got awesome long lashes and I gave her glitter make up using stickles. 

Hey its Dana! I went with green flowers (using Flower Doodles) and wood hearts!! I colored the wood veneer hearts with copic markers!

BE Inspired Challenge #50

Hello!  Welcome to this weeks Be Inspired Challenge!  Lisa here with my take on this challenge.  I've made a fun background by using a double misting technique with a stencil and popped my fun little bird and sentiment up.  In this card I've used the Small Talk Stamp Set and the Birds of a Feather...

Hello, Emily here sharing a card inspired by BIC #50 image.  I used True Colors set to create the graphic background for my wood veneer bicycle.

Hi there! Tara here with my interpretation of the gorgeous inspiration photo! I was drawn to all of the green in the photo along with those tiny bits of flowers peeking out! I used Petal Pushers, Bitty Borders and All About You to create this soothing card.

Hi, Anni here! The green and the bike caught my eye! Here is my card using the set Small Talk (You get this set for free if you spend $40 in march in the TAWS online shop)!

Hey there, Kasia here! When I looked at this photo the green caught my eye for sure, but the idea of Spring inspired me for this one as well. Must be wishful thinking!! I used Trees Company.

Hi, it's Christine, and this is my take on the challenge. I used the car from priceless joy. The sentiment was created with Alphabet Soup (and means congrats).

BE Inspired Challenge #49 - RE Inspired

Hello, N@ Ali here with my take on the sketch. I went for the red and black, interest at the top and stripes. I used the XO from Got it Covered and the kiss from Once Upon a Time to create my own background. For the sentiment I used Gabfest, turning the U into an & by partially masking it.

Chrissie here! I used some Twinking H2O's (shimmering watercolors) to create a simple, glimmery card! I used Awesome Blossom and the sentiment from Got It Covered.

Hello!  It's Tracy sharing my card using the Lighter Than Air and Jibber Jabber stamp sets.  I created a water colored background and string of lights with Liquid Pearls.

Dana here with a card using Birds of a Feather. I was inspired by the bright orange and red colors of the umbrella's!

Hi there, it's Sabine. Happy friday :) For my BE Inspired card I used Framed, the cute mushroom from Veggin' Out and the sentiment from Small Talk. I was inspired by the colors.
