BE Inspired Challenge #59 - Week 4

The winner of this challenge will receive two (in-stock) stamp sets of their choice!!!

We have our Guest Designer, June, joining us again! She created a fabulous card, using the All Wrapped Up Set.  She was inspired by the hanging ornaments in the picture to create these AMAZING ornaments containing the birds!

Hi there!  It's Tracy here with my card inspired by the colors of the leaves.  I used the Making Holiday's Bright stamp set and made the circles into hanging ornaments.  

Hi! Dana here and in Michigan its not really fall anymore! Leafs are all down and gone, its snowed and its been really cold! So instead of making a fall card i made a winter card, but i used the glitter leafs as my inspiration or at least the glitter on them! I used some snowflake dies, the sentiment from Let's Chill and the background from Line Upon Line.

Hi it's N@ Ali here with my retake on this beautiful inspiration picture. This time I focused on the shiny leaves, using Pick One and Making Holidays Bright for the sentiment.

Hi, Tanja here. For my Card today I used the stamp set It's fall about you. As you can see I was inspired by the leaves from the inspiration  picture :-)

We have a wonderful Guest Designer joining us this month, June (aka Snazzyjj)!!!

She used All Wrapped Up and Mad Gab.

Hello! It's Tracy here with my card inspired by the colorful photo in the upper right-hand corner.  I used several inks and the rectangular stamp from the Making Holiday's Bright stamp set.

Hi! Chrissie here! I love the Fall and the beautiful leaves that appear, so I knew I was going to use that part of the inspiration photo for my card! I used BIG Chatter and It's Fall About You along with some glitter glue.

Hi it's N@ Ali, all the different colors with the grey background jumped at me and it took me seconds to have this card done in my head. And I must say the execution was shorter than what I expected, plus I'm always HAPPY to use scraps ; ) Gift stamp from BEE Unique.

Hi y'all - Tanja here! For my card I used the cute turkey from It's fall about you. The sentiment on the vellum tag is from the set Tag-alongs. Happy weekend! :-)

Hi!! Dana here, i was inspired by the fall colors that is in the inspiration photos. Tri-me was on top of my TAWS stamps, so i decided it was a great set to get inky!!! I also used Tickle Me Happy for the sentiment!

BE Inspired Challenge # 58 - Week 4

Wow, isn't this combo fun fun fun! You still have a few days to play along!

N@ Ali here with my take on these gorgeous colors, this time I went for the orange/black and white only, using Tickle Me Happy and Rock Solid for the sentiment.

Chrissie here! This time around, I decided to focus on the polka dots and Halloween feel to the badge! I used Seeing Spots and Ghoulfriend.

Hello,  Tracy here!  I wanted to create a bit of a different card, so I focused on the black, white, and silver color combo.  I love the look of the silver embossing powder on black card stock, so I stamped the snowflakes from the Winter's Butterflies set with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them.

Hi!!! Dana here!!! I used some leftovers from my last BIC card and made a kind of Halloween card!! Kind of because it dosen;t say Halloween but it does have bats!! I used Speak Easy and Bumps in the Night!!

Sabine here. Hi there, I combined three different sets for this BIC card. I used the cute bats with the tiny eyes from Ghoul-Friend , the house from Mrs.Rogers Neighborhood  and the sentiment from Now You See Me.

Boohoo - Tanja here. I used one of my favorite images - a monster! I LOVE cute Monster. This one is from Monster Mash. Have a nice weekend!
