Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges Challenge 101

Hello and welcome to another Inspire.Create.Challenge. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia. This week the design team have been set a colour challenge using colours Highland Heather, Mint Macaron, Misty Moonlight, Pale Papaya and Pool Party. Boy I really did find this one a challenge. 

Stampin' Up!'s colours are all designed to coordinate with each other beautifully and you will see all these colours in combination in their Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper. However after playing around with a number of paper and ink combinations I decided that the theory less is more was the best way to go. I have managed to combine all the 5 colours in my simple card set.




I love these cute little trees from the Christmas Trees Dies which are a part of the Whimsical Trees Bundle p.25 of the July-December 2021 Mini Catalogue.





These cute little trees inspired me to create 3 different card layouts using the same papers and dies. 



For the last card I have added a paper design from the Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series using a die from the very versatile Basic Borders Die set.

So are you up for the challenge? Pop on over and view the gorgeous creations created by our team with these challenge colours we would love for you to join in the fun. Add your project to our gallery here.

Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges Theme: Celebration!


 Hello and welcome to Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia this challenge is number 100 how exciting. So our theme just has to be Celebration! 


Now my card may not look much like a celebration card but I created it to give to my eldest son Wayne who turned 50 this week. Wayne spends most of his working week in a shirt and tie so to relax he loves nothing more than to get into his favourite threadbare  'flannie' (flannelette shirt) and relax. 
 

To construct the shirt I used the Suite and Tie Dies from Stampin' Ups! Annual Catalogue and the Designer Series Paper is one of the papers from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper pack which is FREE with a $90 purchase while Sale-a-Bration is in progress. 


I adjusted the suite die a little so the shirt would open down the centre to reveal the sentiment inside. The 'stitching' around the neck and sleeves of the t-shirt were created with the Picture This Dies. 

This is another card I have created with the Peaceful Prints Designer Series paper which coordinates perfectly with the Peaceful Deer Bundle from the August to December 2021 Mini Catalogue.

Inspire.Create. Stamping Challenges. Challenge#99

 Hello and welcome to Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges #099. I am Karen Farquhar from Australia and we have a CASE the designer challenge for you today.
This gorgeous card has been created by Inspire.Create Stamping Challenges team leader Hannah McCurly using the Sweet Strawberry stamp set

I have CASED Hannah's design but have substituted the Words Of Cheer stamp set and the lovely Whimsy & Wonder Designer Series Paper both from our August-December 2021 Mini Catalogue.



I chose to use the colours from the Designer Series Paper as I think it is so pretty and a little unusual for Christmas cards. I stamped out the image from the stamp set and then fussy cut the flowers and leaves so I could arrange them around my sentiment. 


Having stamped out a few images I took to them with my paper snips.


I just couldn't bear to see the left over scraps go to waste. So I ended up creating 4 projects for my next month's Stamp Club.
