Inspiration Sunday + A Giveaway

Welcome to Inspiration Sunday!

Good Morning Quick Quotes friends!

Rhonda here today to share another project with you featuring the all new line "Just Because".  There is also some vellum here as well, of course.  : )

"Family Everyday Moments"  12x12 layout

The sunburst pattern paper in this line has such an awesome feel to it.  I really wanted to use it with just the right photo.  My hubby is such a kid at heart...  as evidenced here.  lol!  It felt like the green paper needed to be anchored a little lower and tight to the bottom left corner.  A little stitching with zig zags added the feel of more movement too.

I used a landscape silhouette die cut on some vellum scraps for this layer.

A few more collage style details.

Hi Quick Quotes fans!  Christine back today to share a card using goodies from the new Stowaway line as well as a super cool quote from the Bitty Vellum Travel Pack!

I just love the blue and brown combo in this line don't you?  

  • I started with a cream colored cardstock for my base that is about 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  
  • I then added the dark turquoise layer and the striped layer.  
  • I hand cut a banner from the brown polka dot paper and used a border punch on the light blue paper.  
  • I attached my vellum quote to more cream cardstock and distressed the edges on that using Amaretto PowderPuff Chalking Ink.  
  • Isn't that a fun quote?  I've never seen it before but loved it!  I embellished my vellum with some bakers twine and punched out hearts.  
  • Lastly I drew some faux stitching for a border. 
I think this will make a great card for a man or a dear friend!

The layering on the 12 x 12 layout really does a great job of toning down the bright and bold background. Nice work, Rhonda! Love the colors in the Stowaway line and great card from Christine!
