Faith, Hope & Love

Standard

Cupcake Inspirations threw me for a loop again this week with a Navy Blue/Gold/White challenge.  These are all colors that I would normally work with, but I was struggling with how to use them all together as the emphasis, so much so that I almost scrapped the challenge altogether.  Then I received my new stamp set from Darkroom Door and the idea for this card was born.  The sentiment of “Faith…Hope…Love” was so perfect, but didn’t lend itself to a colored image as the focal point, so this project is a bit different from what I would normally create.  I had a very specific layout in mind and I couldn’t find exactly what I had pictured in my head, so I ended up hand-cutting the gold anchor. Even though this card was a bit out of my comfort zone, I am super happy with the results.

Coffee and Cupcakes

Standard

Cupcake Inspirations picked two of my very favorite things as their challenge inspiration this week- coffee and cupcakes!  With inspiration like that, I couldn’t help myself from putting together a card in their honor.  I picked up this awesome digi from the challenge sponsor, Fresh Brewed Designs and put together this sweet little birthday card.

Birthday Chick

I’m working on another challenge and whoa! this one has been difficult! Cupcake Inspirations issued a color challenge (Challenge #318) using goldenrod, rose, and berry; three colors that I don’t usually put together in my own palette. I didn’t really feel like I had any images on hand that would work well, so I took a peek at the sponsor, Doodle Pantry’s site and found this cute little chick (and a few other images I couldn’t resist) that I thought was perfect for a fun birthday card.
