Now for the Design Teams inspiration this week.
Scatty Jan - I love these pop up cards so much detail can be added yet they lay flat for posting - I have used four scrummy characters this time and there all having there fun in the sun! I have used the Caravanner girl and the deckchair lad from work and play collection 3 and the Swimmer and Diver from work and play collection 4. All the characters have been coloured with Graph'It markers xx
Anna - I associate summer not only with vacation, sun or the beach, but mostly with flowers and the wedding season. That’s why this time I made a layered wedding card, in delicate colors of blue and beige, from the Rose Budd CD using papers and flowers, which I cut out myself and added to the bouquet. I also used other flowers, tulle, string, pearls, and lace so that the card would look even more delicate.
Jenny - My card for our Fun in the Sun challenge is from A Double Sprinkle of Kraft and I love the idea of these two sweet owls sitting in the sun enjoying their swing together. Full details are on my blog.
Cheremane - I have used the fabulous Double Sprinkle of Kraft Cd for our Fun In The Sun Challenge . As soon as I saw this little girl she reminded me of a summers day walk in the fields with pretty summer flowers and fluttering butterflies.
Samantha K - I decided to make a 3D scene for my project and have tried to do a bit of a beachy theme. Right at the back (where you can almost not see it lol, there is a sign that says 'Warm Hello and Happy Birthday', so this could be given to someone as a form of card :p
Asha - Here's a bright and sunny card... which also happens to be quick and easy. An all-round winner! For the fun pinwheel background I used papers from the Sugar Birdies CD. The adorable flower girl is from Bonbon Belles CD and the greeting topper is from Fredericka Mini CD Collection. To finish some sheer ribbon and plenty of bling.
Karon - My card is made up of a few different CDs. I decided to use the pre-coloured swimmer off of Work & Play 4, along with the wave papers and banner. The cloud paper and beach hut are from the Bonbon Belles Double CD collection and then finally the sentiment tickets are from the wonderful Cherry Blossom Lane CD. All layered to add a little dimension.
Cara - My card is made using the Cherry Blossom Lane CD, I printed everything on water colour card to give a real soft feel and added dimension by creating a dome front out of acetate and added flowers and birds also from the CD.
Melanie - For this card I've focussed on how summer makes me think of flowers and pretty sundresses! I used the Dolly Daydream Girl Talk CD for this one, with the addition of a doily, some handmade flowers, pearl lace trim, ribbon and a stick pin. I also curled some purple twine with scissors to create my own tendrils for the flowers.
Stunning DT creations to inspire you!
