We have our first BE Inspired Guest Designer joining us today!!! Do you want to be a Guest Designer? Then all you have to do is play along! The winner receives two free sets and a Guest Design spot for a challenge!!!!

Carolin is our first Guest Designer and her card is so much fun!!! She used Flower Doodles to create this stunning card!

Hi peeps, Tanja here. The idea for this card existed already month in my head. Today is the day - I can make it come true! I've used following sets: Castaways, Sushi Bar, Gotta Bug and Jibber Jabber.

Hi! Chrissie here! I love using the oldie, but goodie Breakfast Club set.  It *might* have something to do with my love of coffee... Maybe....  :)

Hi it's N@ Ali, here's my CAS take on this month's challenge using BEE Sweet and BEE Unique:

Hello, it's Sabine. I used my Kitchen Gadgets set and paper pieced the rolling pin.

Hi its Dana here!! I used the colors as my inspiration!! I love the soft green, pink and white. I used a mix of stamps and ink spray to make my background. Big Chatter, Fly By and Tri-me are the TAWs stamps i used to make my card!

Hello!  It's Tracy here!  I was inspired by the cookies in this inspiration photo and I knew I was going to use the Mason Jar from the Buggin' Out set.  Those stars are the perfect cookies to put into the jar! The sentiment is from the Spotted set.

BE Inspired Challenge #54 - Week 1

Hi, Anna is here and my gentle card, that was inspired by the source image. I stamped stripes from Crossing Lines, added splashes with white mist, and used BIG Chatter for sentiments.

Hello, Emily here sharing a card for BIC #54.  I used Tri-Me set.  I stamped the triangle with Distress Inks, misted the stamp with some water before stamping on the watercolor paper.  The sentiment is from Alphabet Soup.  

Hi there! Tara here with my card for the BIC #54. I was inspired by all of the soft pastels and the florals. Such a soft and happy photo and now a card to match!

Hi! Anni here! The picture inspired me to use all the "sweets" stamps that I have: Bite Size and Breakfast Club.

Hello!  It's Lisa here to share my take on this challenge... I loved the image of the cookies and decided to be quite literal in my translation of the picture.  I have used the jar image from the Buggin Out Stamp Set, and my image was created using the Jibber Jabber Set...

Hi, it's Christine. I used the lemon from "Lemon Squeezy"  for this card. The sentiment was cut out with my silhouette.

BE Inspired Challenge # 53 - Week 4

Hi stampers, Tanja here. For my card I’ve used the set True Colors. Over the card basic I've glued a vellum tag. On the vellum I've stamped my sentiment with Staz-on before.  Dacorated the tag with some sequins and as a highlight I've glued  a button on it, which one I've made with my Botton machine.

Chrissie here! This has been such a fun challenge.  I love the splashes of color on this inspiration picture.  I combined True Colors and BIG Chatter to create this card.

Dana here!!! I was experimenting, thinking about how to do a background. I did two different backgrounds, loved them both, so decided instead of just making one card to make a second one! I used one of June's new sets Big Chatter!! Below is one card, check out my blog for the other card!!

Hi there, Sabine here. This is such an amazing inspiration picture! Love it!
I used various birds from the sets Birds of a Feather and Bird Brain and I put them in frames from Framed.

Hi it's N@ Ali. I used rainbow colors for my focal point from Flower Doodles, the background is from Crossing Lines and sentiment from Speak Easy.

Hello!  It's Tracy here with my rainbow card.  I used the Crossing Lines set to create the background and the Life is Short set for the sentiment.

BE Inspired Challenge # 53 - Week 3

Hello, it's Anna here and there is my version of today's inspiration. I like the rainbow themes in cardmaking, so this is my version. I used True Colors set to stamp splashes and text, and then added a few enamel dots.

Hey, Anni here with my second take on the inspiration photo. I used an older stamp set that is till one of my favorites: Tag-alongs. The senitment is from the set Wish BIG.

Hello, Emily here with a 2nd card for BIC #53.  On this card, I used Crossing Lines.  I inked each line in a different color to create the colorful patterns.

Hi everyone! Tara here with cards that use almost all of the brand new sets available this month! I used Buggin' Out, Big Chatter with its corresponding SVG file and Crossing lines to create these fun and bright Hello cards!

Hi, it's Lisa here again to share my second take on this happy inspirational photo!  Anything with rainbows puts me in a good mood!  I've used a water stamping technique with the Star of the Show Stamp Set.  I then embossed over my color stamped blocks with a sentiment from Big Chatter Set, and layered it onto of some lovely lines in the Crossing Lines Stamp Set...

Hi there, it's Christine. Don't you just LOVE all those rainbows? I created my rainbow with a stencil and dye inks. Then I stamped Delicate Doilies and a sentiment rom Speak Easy. Quick, easy, eyecatching ;)
