Creative Inspiration - Week 22

Hello all.

Hard to believe that we are twenty two weeks into this year already. 

Has been a quieter week around my household with the weather turning wet and miserable at the start of the week. However that has left me with getting some inside jobs done around my house AND some time for scrapping. So I got stuck into creating for Mad About Scrappin. 

This week I have created a few cards for you. Have a birthday this week and also wanted to send a card to someone to let them know I was thinking of them.  
 Now I decided to use up some scraps from some Teresa Collins - Memorabilia paper range that I had left over from earlier this year. I am trying to clean up all my scraps at the moment and find that using them for making cards is perfect. 

For the first card I wanted to create something a little feminine from this paper range. By stamping onto the left side of the patterned paper using some dove grey coloured staz on I have added to the background without it being too bold in colour. I have then inked and layer a chevron journal card and a piece of a die cut frame I had in my stash. I then clustered some flowers together and added a greeting to finish off the card. Super easy by quite effective.

Now for the second one I had to create a card for my nephew. It's his birthday and I must say I always seem to struggle to create a masculine card. However this time around I must say I am most impressed with this card. By layering some of the papers and then added some twine held on with the brads I am quite happy with the look of this. I then cut a pennant and mounted it horizontally with 3D foam tape. Then I added some bits and pieces from my stash including the really cute wooded star from Mad About Scrappin. I then finished the card off with the greeting and it was all done.

Have you created cards lately?? 

Do you need to clean out your scrap stash ?

Why not give some cards a go.

Till next  week.
