ASM - Photo Inspiration ....

....  Good evening!  It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week we have our Photo Inspiration challenge - you must base your card on the photo - you can take any element - the colours, theme, an element - just tell us what you use as inspiration.  We are sponsored this week by Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  The winner of the challenge will get 7 digis!!  I used a really fun Bugaboo digi on my card:

Stamps: Bugaboo Digi - Valentine Jar; MFT - LJD All My Love
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Real Red, Primrose Petals, Pretty in Pink, Strawberry Slush, Regal Rose, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar, Early Espresso
Dies: Memory Box - Cross Stitched Frame Borders #5
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear


 
 
There are lots of Valentine based challenges about at the moment and I used a couple in the making of my card.  I used the layout from CAS(E) this Sketch - CTS#108 and the the general theme of Valentine from Fusion - FUSION#27.  From our inspiration photo I took the colours of reds, pinks and browns, along with the text which I incorporated with the texty hearts.

I printed the Bugaboo digi on white card, coloured it with Copic markers, cut it out with a die and added some sparkle to the large hearts and the word Love.  I created my own background by using all the heart images from All My Love - stamping them randomly on the base and in lots of colours!  I adhered the die cut image with dimensional tape.  On the inside of the card I cut a mat layer of pink card, stamped a sentiment on the white panel and added another, slightly smaller, Valentine Jar.  I've taken a close up of the big hearts so that you can see the shimmer.

I think the cross stitched frame is just perfect for this card - it echos the hugs and kisses theme!!  Do check out our blog to see more inspiration projects from the team based on our photo.  Have fun!!!
