BE Inspired Challenge # 56 - Week 3

We have our awesome Guest Designer, Jennifer, back again with us for this challenge! She used the 
True Colors set to create this beauty!

Hello! Anna's here and I want to share with you my card I was inspired by this image. I still love the color scheme and I used it. Flower from Flower Show set is made on vellum with white embossing powder and colored with watercolors. And sentiment is from True colors set (I stamped it without last word 'in').

Hello!  Lisa here with another take on this gorgeous photo inspiration!  I've used the Black Beard's Loot, Land Ho Stamp Sets to create this fun pirate card, perfect for any little boy!  I just loved the colors in the photo and the boat of course!

Hi, it's Christine with a new take on this inspiration picture. I used Monster Mash and Monster Madness for my card. 

Anni here! For my second card for the inspiration I went with the boat theme!

BE Inspired Challenge #56 - Week 2

Our guest designer Jennifer Spivey has a fabulous to card to share with us for this challenge!!! She used Fly By and the coordinating SVG files - wow!

Chrissie here! As soon as I saw this picture, I knew I'd use the cute boat from Nap Time and a pattern from Bitty Borders to create my card.  I added some vellum to give the effect of those soft ripples in the water and also used the clouds from Once Upon a Time!

Anna's here and my "Deepest sympathy" card. Here I used only Flower Show set. I was inspired by diamonds and colors of the blankets.

Hello!  Tracy here!  I was inspired by the colors in the blankets when creating my card.  I used the Tri-Me set along with pigment inks for a bright and fun card!

Hi, Tanja here. The soft shimmering light from the picture inspired me to create this card. It's so hopeful.  I used Kid n' Caboodle. A nice day for y'all.

Hi there, Sabine here. This is my take on the BIC #56. I was inspired by the patterns on the blankets and the tranquility in this beautiful picture. So there is no sentiment, just a little green birdie chirping. 
I used Trees Company :)

BE Inspired Challenge #56 - Week 1

Hello from Anna! This time the inspiration is proposed with such an atmospheric photo... And I made small and funny tags. Now talk a little about how it came out. I liked the pattern with the diamonds on the blankets on the photo, and I took their colors, and a stamp from the Pick One set is like a diamond ... and lemon! That's how these lemon were born. Sentements are from Doodle frame set.

Hi there! Tara here with my card for the inspiration challenge! I chose the quilts as my starting point and created a fun background with a mix of stamped patterns! The sentiment is from True Colors!

Hello! Lisa here, and I just love this picture it seems like the perfect picture for the winding down of summer... Anywho, I couldn't get the triangles seen in the picture out of my head when it was time to get crafty so I just went with it!  I have used the Tri-Me set with a floral accent!  Can't wait to see what you will create!

Hi there, it's Christine. For my card I used Fa la la and Christmas Magic. Pretty simple :)

Anni here! Okay, I'll be honest! I was dying to use the super cute set Mrs Rogers Neighborhood! And the tent on the boat was just the excuse that I needed!
