BE Inspired Challenge # 57 - Week 3

We have our awesome Guest Designer, Kaylee, back with us again for one more project! YAY! She used Castaways and All About You. Kaylee was inspired by the pastel colors, grey car, retro feel of the car and radios, and the stacked radios.  

Hello from Anna! I was so inspired by lower right picture, so I used white pigment inks to stamp stars from Now You See me set on a dark-grey cardstock, added sentiments from Rock Solid set, and a pin with twine and two small tags.

Anni here! I love the colors in all the inspiration photos. So I used them for my christmas card. The cute snowman is from the set No Peeking.

Morning friends!! I am excited to participating in this great BIC challenge!! I was inspired by the colors...I pulled out the aqua and chocolate right away when I saw the inspiration photo!! These fun Dinos from Stomper and Livin' Fossils are so much fun! I thought that the Birthday sentiment, from the Freebie for the month was a fun sentiment to add to the hatching of a little egg!;)

Hello!  Lisa here with my second take on this yummy photo!  I was inspired by the onesie and the colors throughout the photos when creating my card today.  I have used the Priceless Joy and Baby Talk Stamp Sets here...

Hi, it's Christine!
I just love the inspiration photo with those vintage shapes and colors. I used Bite Size for my card - these tiny cupcakes are way too cute!

BE Inspired Challenge #57 - Week 2

Chrissie here! I was inspired by the onesie and the circles (and colors) to create this CAS card.  I used Nap Time, Iconic, and Prehistoric!

Hi Dana here!! I got my inspiration from the picture of paint lids, i really liked the circles and the colors! I used a sentiment from Speak Easy!

Hi it's N@ Ali. Wow this inspiration combo is so beautiful and inspiring! I went for the pink and chocolate of the top left picture. The plaid was so easy to create using Crossing Lines, and the sentiment is from Bacon Bits.

Hi, Tanja here. I LOVE the BIC #57. It's so inspiring. Especially the colors are awesome in my opinion. For my card I used the cute little guy from the set Meltdown, because he looks like a popsicle.

Hi there, it's Sabine. This is my take on the awesome BIC inspiration picture. I used the one in top left corner, and I was inspired by the colors pink, blue, yellow, and brown. I made four tags using Breakfast ClubSeeing Spots and Baby Talk. There are more pics on my blog :)

Hello!  It's Tracy here with my take on the inspiration photo.  I was inspired by the soft colors, so I decided to create a watercolor card.  I used the Rock Solid set for the sentiment and Tropic Topic for the flamingo.

BE Inspired Challenge # 56 - Week 4

Chrissie here, using BIG Chatter and Tri-Me to create this card.  I was inspired by the patterns in the picture.

Hi it's N@ Ali with my take on the challenge, I was inspired by the muted colours and flash of light so I used grey and gold to try to replicate the mood. The sentiment is from Rock Solid and the images from Livin' Fossils, both sets from this month's release.

Hello everybody, Tanja here with my second card for the BIC #56. Isn't the frog cute? I used the Sets Kid n' Caboodle and Ooh-la-la. *MWAH*  ;-)

Hello!  It's Tracy here and I was inspired by the bright colors in the blanket for my card.  I used the BIG Chatter set for both the flowers and the sentiment.

Hi! Dana here! I was inspired by the rectangle of the tent and the quilt looking fabric cover of the tent! I used Tri-Me and some pattern paper to make my card.

Hi there,it's Sabine. This is my take on the inspirational photo. I used many sets to make this card :)
The boat is from Got it Covered, the sentiment is from Speak Easy, the fun sun is from the new set Prehistoric and the smiley face is from Tooty Fruity
