Top Picks - #60 Balloon Photo

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all of those who entered our photo inspiration challenge earlier in the month! It is always fun to see the different elements that inspire participants. The hot air balloon was a popular theme, but it was great to see other nautical and beach inspired cards as well!  Here are our top picks:


We loved Maura’s design! She used a wonderful color combination and we really like her clouds with sun rays!

Mary did a wonderful job of masking and blending. She incorporated so many techniques, but still pulled off a great clean look!

 We loved how Macarena created the waves from torn paper. Such a creative idea and it looks fantastic!

Challenge #61 - Word Prompt - Splash

This time we have a word prompt for you - 'splash' - and we have a fabulous Guest Designer Cinni

Here's what she has to say about herself: 
Hello, I'm Cinni, 34 years old, married and always creative. Especially I like to create cards, CAS or "Cute", I'd like to do both of them. But I also like to design wrappings and I scrap a little bit. Actually, everything around paper is "my thing". 

And here's what Cinni created: 

Here's some inkspiration from our Design Team 







We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer. 

We're sorry that we can't comment on cards that are uploaded to galleries where we have to register to comment  (eg Splitcoast Stampers). When we can view your card, however we will still consider it for our top picks.

Top Picks #59 - blue

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who entered our blue/white or cream challenge! We are always impressed by the creativity of the entries. Here are our top picks:


We love how Cornelia used such a unique technique to create this great look. She highlighted different shades of blue and put it all together with a great design!

We love Deepti’s design with the framed center and little splatters. Her retro flower and simple ‘bloom’ create such a fantastic look!

Tenia's card is striking in its simplicity. She used a beautiful shade of blue and her use of splatters is wonderful!

Congratulations to these ladies!
