Happy Friday! We are so glad you stopped by today, it's Pinspiration Friday! Every day, we scour the Internet for inspiring MME projects. We find your work on your blogs, through our FB page,and in online galleries. We pin the ones that inspire us most!
Then once a month we challenge our designers to use one of your creations as inspiration for a layout or card.
This month Danni and Tamara arejoining us. Here's what they came up with. Enjoy and have a lovely, creative weekend!
Inspiration Piece: Valerie O'Neall
Supplies:Kate&Co-Cambridge Court:Doubles patterned paper, chipboard embellishments, decorative brads, enamel dots;Misc:Tim Holtz ink blender tool, Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow and Spring Moss ink and Stamper's Select cardstock, machine stitching
Danni says: I chose this absolutely beautiful canvas from Valerie O'Neall because I loved the scattering of embellishments.
On my card, I created my background block of paper using my Tim Holtz ink blender, white cardstock and Papertrey Inks. I started with PTI Spring Moss and blended it over a block of PTI Stamper's Select cardstock. After blending the Spring Moss ink, I lightly blended some Fresh Snow ink over the top and then blended a light coat of Spring Moss.
The gorgeous embellishments from the Kate & Co. Cambridge Court line make creating the scatter of embellies easy and fun. I absolutely love the chipboard embellies in this line, especially this polaroid frame, I love to stitch the frame and then layer it. The colors in this line are so feminine, beautiful and happy!
Inspiration Piece: Michelle Unruh
Supplies: Decorative Tape Sets: Grey, Navy, Red, Black, and Yellow; Kate and Co.-Cambridge Court:Stripes patterned paper; Find Your Wings and Fly: "Up and Away": black enamel dots, "Happy" sticker, Collectable - Remarkable: label stickers, Lush: red chipboard letters; Misc: White and black cardstock, red thread, black ink and pen.
Tamara says:I was so inspired by this beautiful washi tape birthday card by Michelle Unruh. I really liked her mix of patterns and how she placed the decorative tapes at an angle.
For my layout, I wanted the decorative tapes to be the main focus and to create the "patterned paper" for my layout. I pulled the colors from the photos and used 3 different patterns of the 5 colors: black, blue, grey, red, and yellow. I placed the decorative tapes in a chevron pattern - it echoes the interlocking lego bricks in the photos.
