Hello everyone! It's time for the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Challenge #13-50 : "Photo Inspiration". The guidelines for this challenge: Create a project using the photo as inspiration. Interpret the photo ANY way you would like, just be sure to let us in on your creative process. The colors next to the photo are only suggested.
Here is the photo:
And here is my card:
It's probably obvious, but the first thing I thought of when looking at the inspiration photo - was a beautiful Christmas ornament. And of course, the colors are gorgeous too! The pretty patterned papers are from the Simple Stories ~ Handmade Christmas Collection. The solid red and solid green cardstock are from Paper Trey Ink. The shiny red cardstock for the ornament on the right is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Foiled Cardstock Stack. And the sparkly gold paper for the ornament on the left is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ Glitzy Glitter Stack. All of the cuts on this card were done with my Cameo and files from the Silhouette Online Store. The pretty leaves/branches at the top were cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I added some simple bows with hemp twine and added a little red pearl to the center of each bow. The "Happy Holidays" sentiment is from the PKS ~ December 2012 : Kit of the Month.
Well that's it for me. Make sure you head on over to Peachy Keen Stamps to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. And I hope to see each and every one of you enter this fun challenge!! I can't wait to see what you all make!
