Two of my favourite challenges are on Splitcoaststampers. Monday has a Clean and Simple Challenge and Wednesday has a Sketch Challenge. This week's Clean and Simple was 'Gardens'. You just had to upload a garden themed card that was clean and simple. Unfortunately, I wasn't inspired. I'm not really a garden person. I'm fine when occasionally dragged out to sit in it with a glass of something on the patio but I'm not a gardener and I rarely have time to sit. If I attempt to craft in the garden my papers usually blow all over the place and I lose patience. Anyway, I did carry on and have a look at the design samples - which is where the inspiration hit me. Toni's sample (which you can see here) was the inspiration. I loved the layout of the card and was struck by how versitile it was. It got me thinking. How many different cards could I make using this layout?
OK, what I was also thinking was 'what on earth am I going to post on this blog thing now that I've started it' and I thought it might be interesting to show you what I've come up with. So, here are 4 samples of what I've been doing this week - using Toni's layout of course.
|I wasn't sure whether to post this one or not. It's not usually may thing. I have die cuts but don't use them|
|this one is for a lady who'd asked for a turquiose wedding card|
Thanks for reading.
