Follow Your Dreams

It’s Monday!!!  And it’s back to school for me!  We start back this week with meetings then classes next week.  BUGGER!  Where did my summer go?  But since it is Monday it is a fun day with another inspiration.

So here’s our inspiration picture…

LOVE the pretty colors and decided to go with that.

The Follow Your Dreams bundle has been sitting on top of my desk so I went with that.  It’s hard to see in the picture but the second feather is Gold Foil and Dream and the it little ‘sun’ in the center are both Night of Navy.

Here’s the details…

  • Coastal Cabana – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5
  • Whisper White – cut out 4 detailed circles, add to panel and trim off edges, layer onto Night of Navy 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Twinkle Twinkle dsp – 1 1/4 x 3 1/4, add to card front
  • Gold Glimmer – 1/4 x 3 3/4, add to card front
  • Whisper White – cut out largest layering circle, add to card front using dimensionals

Happy August everyone!  It’s ‘back to school’ month for so many of us (me included)…say it ain’t so!  And while you are reading this, I’m in Memphis at the SimGHOSTS conference and I am sure I am learning TONS!  But in the meantime, there’s a Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge and a happy color combo…

If you had checked out my Monday post, you know that I used the AWESOME Follow Your Dreams bundle.  You know me…”if it is sitting on top of my desk” I tend to use it again.  And sure…these are REALLY natural colors for feathers…RIGHT?!  LOL!!!

Follow Your Dreams

LAST Monday of July…AND…I leave for SimGhosts tomorrow…WOO HOO!!!  But in the meantime ONE MORE inspiration challenge for this month.

So here’s our inspiration picture…

Now initially I was going to go with our absolutely DELIGHTFUL Dandelion set but when I looked at Connie’s card that is what she used so I decided to let the photo inspire me in a totally different direction.  I decided the Follow Your Dreams set and matching framelits give a similar feel as the dandelions in the piece.  Originally I was just going to  use greys, black, brown…like the piece but decided it needed a pop of color.  Then it sort of just got away from me BUT…I really like how it turned out!  Here it is…

Here’s the details…

  • Grey Granite – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Twinkle, Twinkle dsp – 3 3/4 x 5, layer onto Grapefruit Grove – 3 7/8 x 5 1/8, wrap Black 1/8″ cord around panel and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Grey Granite – 2 1/2 x 4 1/2, stamp image in Versamark and white emboss, cut into a banner, sponge edges using Grey Granite and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Basic Black – cut out image, add to card front
  • Whisper White and Vellum – cut out feather, add to card both to card front
  • Whisper White – stamp little feathers in Memento Black, cut out, add to card front
  • Grapefruit Grove – cut out “dream”, add to card front
  • Nature’s Root Twine – Grapefruit Grove – tie small bow, add to card front

So…LOVE the way this turned out.  Honestly it was truly ‘inspired’ by the photo…but too a different route getting there!

Don’t forget we got an AWESOME collection for you…Love You to Pieces!  FOUR unique cards and not one but TWO 3D items!  You don’t want to miss this one!
