Challenge 25 - Photo Inspiration
Begins December 15, 2010
Photograph from Martha Steward Living

Create a Card, Layout, Gift or Tag using this photo as inspiration.

Senior Designers

Jan used more Stampin' Up products this week making this dainty little card. The satin ribbon, cardstock and paper were all so easy to use she says, "wonderful quality and texture !" Stop by and say merry merry on her blog !

Tracy chose to make a card using the soft blues and greens and Christmas red from this week's inspirational photo. She used papers and embellishments courtesy of our December Design Team Sponsor, Catherine Pooler. The card is made in the joy fold style and is held closed with that wonderful big green button.

Liz was inspired by the colours of this week's Photo Challenge. She used the beautiful Stampin' Up collection - 'Deck The Halls' to create a simple card. She backed all the patterned paper with cardstock and inked all the edges in charcoal.

Regan gained inspiration from the tree, sled and the red and green colors in the inspiration photo for this weeks challenge. She used several Stampin' Up! products to create this cute little card including this adorable stamped image! For more photos and details, please visit her blog.

Design Team

Angi was inspired by the beautiful Christmas tree in the inspirational photo. She recycled a tree from an old greeting card and added her own special touch to it. She scallop punched the bottom of a sheet of Martha Stewart "Holidays" paper and placed it on a base of kraft cardstock. She then added buttons and gold metallic ribbon to make the bow. For more Christmas inspiration please be sure to visit Angi's blog.

Kimberly was inspired to use the green color from the Christmas tree from this week's inspirational photo. Combined with the reds from the ornaments on the tree, Kim created a traditional holiday card with lots of detail. Notice the clustered embellishments? They were a great find from some of her Christmas decorations, recycled, and put to good use! For more photos and inspiration, be sure to visit Kim's blog!

Auxiliary Team Members

C was inspired by the Christmas Tree and the snowflake ornaments in this week's challenge photo. She used multiple trees in different colors and layers with embossed snowflake flurries. She couldn't resist adding a bit of bling to add some sparkle to this holiday card.

Jennifer took the color palette from the tree as the inspiration for this week's challenge. The traditional reds and greens are highlighted on a crisp white card and accented with Santa's approval! For more details about how she made this card, head over to her blog!

Tomorrow for a special treat we have a tutorial from Regan. This young lady is so very talented, and we are very fortunate to have her as part of our Papercraft Star team. Be sure to return for that.
