Stampin' Celebration Challenge

Happy Monday!  

Did you survive Halloween?  My guys had a great time with their trick or treating.  Lots of candy and lots of sugary energy in this house!  

I am very happy to say it's time for another Stampin' Celebration Challenge and this week we have some picture inspiration for you!  Are you a fan of yellow, grey and white?  If so, this is your week!  These pictures are so much fun! 

Polka dots, stripes, flowers, birds and scalloped edges.  So many great themes to focus on, I had a hard time choosing.  So I decided to make two cards - my first card is my favourite, but both were created using the inspiration pictures.

So I decided to try the Joyful Season stamp for a card other than Christmas.  I thought the cardinal could maybe turned into a cockatial if I stamped him in yellow - well, OK I guess he can be a yellow cardinal, but I think he is pretty cute anyway.  I popped him up with some layered circles using my Circle Framelits and dimensionals.  

Did you notice the little diamond pattern in the birds in inspiration picture?  I had to really zoom in - well that's what brought me to my pattern behind the our little yellow friend.  My greeting is from the stampset Remembering Your Birthday.  I really like the font and the size.

For my second card, I used some oldies but goodies!  I started with a Smokey Slate card base again, but added a layer of Daffodil Delight, then a layer of grey and white striped DSP.  

I put a strip of Daffodil Delight edged with my Scallop Punch.  I created some flowers out of yellow and white polka dot DSP using my Pansy and Blossom Punches then layered them on top of each other and then added a bow.  I used my Bird Builder Punch to create a grey and white little bird and placed him right on top of the bow.  I LOVED how that looked in the inspiration picture 

Last but not least, I added some grey leaves to my flowers.  I purposefully left the card without a greeting - because I thought it can be used for anything.  

I sure hope you join us at Stampin' Celebration Challenge!  We can't wait to see what you create!

Remember, inky fingers are the happiest fingers.

Happy Stampin'
