ASM - Photo Inspriation ....

.... Hello!!!  It's so bloomin' cold here, that the only thing to do with my time is stay indoors and play in my craft room - well, apart from when I'm out clearing the snow off the drive and paths!!!!

Here at Addicted to Stamps and More! it's time for our last challenge of January and this week we have photo inspiration.  Our Guest Designer this week is Karen (May by Meadie) and our sponsor is Deedee Digis.  I've used one of Deedee's lovely images on my card:

Stamps: Deedee's Digis - Gingerbread Holidays; Waltzingmouse - Frame-It; CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Shenanigans
Inks: Kaleidacolor - Pastel
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! DP - Chocolate Chip; Copics; Glitter


I've used the sketch layout from this week's Less is More challenge - LIM#156.  Don't you love the inspiration photo?  I used Deedee's cute gingerbread house, but made it into more of a Candy House by using more pastel colours like in the photo.  I added a touch of glitter to suggest sugar frosting (although it could just as easily be snow)!  To make the sentiment panel I coloured some scrap card with a brown copic to match the house and then the top panel is coloured to match the house.  I stamped the fun sentiment in Kaleidacolor pastel to match the sweets!  For the inside I cut a mat layer in brown DP and on the white panel stamped a bold sentiment.  I finished off the inside with a few little cupcakes, with the icing rainbow colours to match the sentiment.

I also took a close up of the cute little house so that you can see the details.  It's a really sweet image.

For more ideas based on the inspiration photo, check out the cards from our Guest Designer, Karen and also the rest of the team.  I'm really looking forward to seeing your creations.  See you soon.

This is great fun Deborah! I love the interpretation of the inspiration photo - but it's definitely sugar frosting; I think you've had enough of snow for the time being! Vicky x
