Top Picks #67 Color Challenge

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all of our entries from the purple and grey/silver challenge! We really enjoyed visiting your blogs to see your work. Here are the top picks:


We loved Marika’s beautiful design, her use of woodgrain, and her color choices. Plus, her flowers are gorgeous!


We found Karen’s soft masked background to be the perfect backdrop for her beautiful butterfly. Her design is great and we just love the overall feel here!


Deepti created such a dramatic card with fantastic drawn trees, a great use of vellum, and an overall great theme for the challenge!

Congratulations to our winners!

Challenge 68 - Photo inkspiration

Welcome back to Inkspirational - I hope you like the Inkspirational photo we've chosen. I hope it inkspires you to make a project . Although most of the DT have gone with the owls theme (and you can't really get too many owls) , you could be inspired by the wool, the colours, the patterns ...anything.  Just, if it's not obvious, do say how you've been inspired. All types of handmade project are welcome. 

Please welcome our talented Guest Designer, Maura 

About 7 years ago, a good friend of mine asked if I wanted to join a card-making club with fellow teachers from my school.  I thought to myself, hmmm, not so sure about the card-making, but it would be great to do something fun with my colleagues.  Little did I know… I loved the time with friends, but fell head over heels in love with card-making, and as they say….. the rest is history (Can you say, “addiction”?)!!  I love everything about this hobby - the creativity, the colors, the music I listen to when I craft, the shopping for supplies, and the sharing of my cards with friends - hobbies just don't get much better than this in my book!

And here's some ideas from our Design Team: 



We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer. 

We're sorry that we may not be able to comment on cards that are uploaded to galleries where we have to register to comment  (eg Splitcoast Stampers). When we can view your card, however we will still consider it for our top picks.

Top Picks #66 - Beverages

Current challenge HERE. 

You guys blew us away with the entries in our drinks/beverages challenge earlier in the month! Such a high quality of work displayed. Thank you to all of our entries. Here are our top picks:


Deborah’s card is so fun and funky. We love her subtle color combination and her splattered, grunge look is great!

 We really like Lorraine’s use of bright colors. Her use of sparkle, washi, and sequins creates such a fresh look!


We like how Deepti used an off-centered card orientation! There are so many details in this card, but the overall look is so clean.
