Happy Friday and welcome to the Paper Crafts Card Creations 9 Blog Hop! I am glad you are stopping by! Today you will find inspiration on the blogs of 9 Designers sharing cards that are inspired by this wonderful cover:
And while hopping along, you have the chance to win this amazing magazine! Just leave a comment on every blog on your way! Now, before showing my card I would like to tell you a bit about my experience working on this issue. I have to say that this kind of submission call is my favorite! I love to sit down and just play with all my supplies without a lot of limits. I sketched many ideas into my idea book and just enjoyed creating one after the other. I made about 30 cards which was a record for me! I was a bit strung up while waiting for an acceptance email (because I made soo many cards) and when I opened my email account and saw that list of 16 accepted cards I ran to my husband (who was lying in his bed almost asleep) screaming and squealing and hopping and dancing happily. Unbelievable for me. So cool. Ok, but now let's get to my card, shall we? Here it is:
For my card I wanted to include something from each of those fabulous cover cards and use the colors of the cover itself. The "sketch" and the flower are inspired by Windy's card, the flag with the sentiment is inspired by Carolyn's card and that sentiment with the red rhinestone is inspired by Kelley's card. Somehow I wasn't able to work the green/blue of the cover into my creation, so I just used it for my setup :) Because I didn't own that gorgeous Prima Flower Windy used, I created my own. I just layered some die-cut tissue flowers, some tulle and some red velvet flowers and voilà. Not THAT gorgeous, but it worked. Red feathers would have been perfect! Here's another shot:
