BE Inspired Challenge #55 - Week 2

This challenge just screams summer and I love it! Chrissie here and I used Breakfast Club along with BIG Chatter to create this card.  I LOVE this color combo!!!

I LOVE this photo!! Dana here and i have a card inspired by the colors!! I like to think that there is a yummy strawberry limeade drink in those jars! I used the Hey Cupcake stamp set.

Tracy here!  I love the colors in this photo, so that is what I used for my inspiration.  I stamped the floral image from Pick One with Distress Inks and sprayed water on them to create the watercolor look.  The sentiment is from the Life Is Short set.

Hi it's N@ Ali, I too was inspired by this fabulous color combo, I used one of the cute houses from Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood for my focal point.

Hi peeps, Tanja here, I fell in love with the Inspiration picture immediately. When I look on it I smell the fresh scent of pink grapefruit! :-)  For my card I used Castaways, Party Animal and Ghoul Friend.

Sabine here. The inspiration picture is so adorable! I was inspired by the colors and the shabby look. The wooden crate inspired me to use my woodgrain embossing folder.
The tomato is from Tooty Fruity.

Her card is simply fabulous! She used Jibber Jabber, Tooty Fruity, and It's Fall About You stamp sets.

Hi everyone! Tara here with my creation using this delicious inspiration photo! I used the lemon wedge from Lemon Squeezy to create a sweet Thank You card!

Hi!  Lisa here, and aren't you just craving a lemonade right about now? hehehehe!  I've created a summery card using the colors from the inspirational photo.  I pulled out my Lighter Than Air and Once Upon A Time Stamp Sets and got inky...

Hello from Russia and Anna! I was inspired by the colors of the original image and made a card for newcoming baby. I used Wreathed in Love for making little bird in the egg and added a Welcome sentiment from the Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood set.

Hey there, it's Christine. I kept my card pretty close to the inspiration picture (that I LOOOVEEE!) and used my Lemon Squeezy mini set. The sentiment was made with alphabet soup.

If you want to guest with us, all you have to do is play along!!!!

BE Inspired Challenge # 54 - Week 3

Hi everyone! It's Tara with a card I created for the Be Inspired Challenge! I just love all of the soft pastel colors and delicate florals of the inspiration photo and used those on this sweet little scene card.

Hello! Anna's here with this soft card. I tried to repeat the main motives of the source image - small slowers patters, light green polka dot, yellow and pink.

Still loving these yummy colors!  It's Lisa here with my second take on this challenge.  I have used this month's free stamp with $40 purchase Wreathed In Love:

Hi there, it's Christine. Time for summer! We have sun and nice temperatures (well, at least we had nice weather for two days now! So I took out Tropical Hideaway  and created this card. Pink is not my color - but it's totally fine on tropical images ;)

Hello everyone, Emily here sharing a card made for BIC #54.  I used the newly released set Pick One for this card.  I first masked the card using the cut out from the inner frame.  Next, randomly stamped the flowers.  Removed the mask and adhere my frame using foam tape.
