BE Inspired Challenge # 58 - Week 3

Hello! Anna is here and it's my view on this month's inspiration pictures. I chose a pic with garland and a deer this time. I cut orange and black circles and stamped dots (from Wreathed in Love set) with the same colors. Looks like a confetti! And a sentiment is from Rock Solid.

Anni here! Orange and turquoise is one of my favorite color combos ever! Today I added the black and white polka dots from the upper right image to the mix!

Hiya!  It's Lisa here with another take from me on this lovely inspiration...  I've been in the Halloween spirit lately, and this inspirational photo really hit it home for me, so I busted out an older set "Ghoul Friend" and got inky...

Hey all, Jeni here! I loved the polka dots--I always do--on the inspiration photo! I also loved the spider webs and was thinking how I could recreate them, more love for the bunch of thread!! My dinosaur is from Livin' Fossils and the sentiment from Prehistoric.

Hey, it's Christine. This is my creation, using "Ghoul Friend", one of the cutest Halloween sets ever! :)

BE Inspired Challege # 58 - Week 2

Our Guest Designer Vicki is back! She used TA-DA & Now You See Me.
"I was inspired by the bottom photo as the bunny I used reminded me of the deer head with antlers. I used the sky blue feathers to mimic the arrows in the bottom corner of the photo and I used the black, orange and white sequins to mimic the “garland” draping over the deer antlers."

Chrissie here - I think the inspiration picture is one of my favorites! I love the fall and Halloween! I used Funky Feet and Ghoulfriend to create this tag!

Hello!  Tracy here with a fun Halloween card!  I was inspired by the polka dots and colors in the inspiration photo.  I used the Bumps In The Night stamp set.

Hi Dana here!! When i made my card i was mainly thinking about the blue pick-up truck with the orange pumpkins in the back! So i used those colors in my design! I also really wanted to use the Zombie sentiment in the Bumps in the Night stamp set! I also used the matching SVG to cut my brains!! Here is what i came up with:

Happy hello to y'all! Tanja here. I love the inspiration picture very much. I guess the colors fit perfect together!  For my card I used Ghoul Friends.

Hi, it's N@ Ali here. Here's my take on this week's inspiration photo, what a great color combo! I used the mini Now You See Me.

BE Inspired Challenge #58 - Week 1

Our Guest Designer for the month is Vicki! She used Meltdown & Now You See Me.
"I was inspired by the top right inspirational photo and used the black twine and button to mimic the spider in the corner. The mirror inspired my white panel with a vellum overlay and I embossed the eyeballs to mimic the webbing over mirror. The little “one-eyed” guy is meant to mimic the lamp on the table."

Anni here! I was totally inspired by the picture in the upper left corner! Love the woodgrain with orange and turquoise! The cute robot is from the set Crazy Circuits!

Hello from Anna! What a great inspiration this month, right? I love the colors and pictures. And this week I was insoired by picture with a turquoise car with pumpkins. I used Now You See Me, Rock Solid and Love Knots sets.

Hey there, it's Jeni! Isn't the inspiration piece awesome!? I had a great time working on the challenge!! I used some Tickle Me Happy feathers, and sentiment from the Rock Solid freebie! I loved, loved, the truck and pumpkins!!

Hey, Lisa here with one more project to share to help get those creative minds going... This inspirational photo had me falling in love with a new to me color combo... this will def. have to go in my bag of tricks to use at a later date, and since I can't get enough of the Tickle Me Happy Stamp Set I'm using it here too...

Hey, it's Christine. I have a pretty simple take on the photo using images from Tag-alongs and a sentiment from BEE Sweet.

BE Inspired Challenge # 57 - Week 4

Hi it's N@ Ali. There are still a few days for you to play along with us, with this gorgeous inspiration combo! I was inspired by the soft colors and baby theme (with the onesie) to create my card, using the safety pin from Nap Time to create my background.

Chrissie here! This challenge picture had so many possibilities! Last time, I focused on the baby onesie.  This time, I focused on those circles, the car and the colors! I used Seeing Spots for the background, along with Mrs. Roger's Neighborhood, Small Talk, Spotted and BEE Happy.  Yep - I used a ton of sets.  Why? Because they all work so well together! :)

Hi, Tanja here. My card today reminds me of popsicle again (maybe you remember my last card inspired by this inspriation Picture?!) I used Crazy Circuits and Learning Curve. Bye :-)

It's Sabine. Here is my second take on the BIC #57. I was inspired by the colors blue, pink, yellow and brown in the picture and I used the funny bird from the new set All Wrapped Up
The background was created with the snowflake from the set.

Hi Dana here!! I was inspired by the grey onsie and the white card!! I also decided to make a birthday card perfect for a little boy!! I used Mrs. Rogers Neighborhood, Got It Covered and Out of This World!

Hello!  It's Tracy here with a baby card that was inspired by the colors and car in the photo.  I used the Crossing Lines, Priceless Joy, and Baby Talk stamp sets.
