DT- Creative Inspirations Pink and Cream Clara...

Hello Blogger Buddies,
it is time for a new challenge at
Creative Inspirations,
a colour challenge of PINK and CREAM
and guess who's sponsoring us this glorious challenge?
None other than the fabulous
Simon Says Stamps, woohoo!!!

The "recipe" is toward the bottom of this post in an attempt to shave down the length of my post, yet again. I had fun with this project!! I had so many leaves and flowers out, distressed, glimmer misted and Stickled, all ready to go onto my project, but then I started having a crisis about covering up all of the birdcages on this fab BG paper, so I left most of them off. I did lots of paper piecing on this one, I stamped the image as if she were reaching right out of her oval and shadowed the image in Faded Jeans ink, then I coloured and cut out another image, she is glued down in most areas except for her head and her dress, I popped those spots up with foam dots, it is a great effect to enhance paper piecing.

I've played along with several other challenges:
Basic Grey Challenges
wants to see animals on our creations,
Cute Card Thursdays' challenge is Bloomin' Gorgeous!!
And I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday,
although I swapped out a sentiment for a bow...
As usual, had to tweak something.


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie (this is Clara), Inkadinkado flourishes
Mediums: Ranger Distress Unk, Archival Ink, Crystal Stickles
Papers: Basic Grey designer paper, Bazzill cardstock
Flowers: Little Primas, ek Success fern punch, MS twig punch,
gardenia from The Amazing Jodie
Lace: Kellie's magical lace, find it here
Others: organza ribbon, foam dots, sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you can pop by
Creative Inspirations,
the designers have created
the most scrumptious projects
for your viewing pleasure!!

Take Care,

OH OH OH OH WOW....! When I first started making cards with Magnolia's I used that bird cage paper, it's gorgeous and I thought my cards looked ok but this, this is just absolutely breath taking! I am almost speechless, but we both know that will just never happen, hehe! It's so elegant, vintage, fancy, gorgeous, stunning, absolutely fan-friken-tastic! I just love all the layering you have done as always super effective. MOVE over Kristy, princess or not this is for me! hehehe, I mean, please Stephanne, hehe. What more can I say?
