Hello crafty friends,
This week, we are thrilled to share your projects on today’s Craftspiration post! We love seeing how you interpret our Finishing School projects using your own papers, embellishments and sentiments. Below we are highlighting a number of absolutely gorgeous cards and projects with you. Take a look at the color combinations, composition and more; they are simply inspiring!
On Facebook, Bonnie shared, “Inspiration comes from unexpected places. I saw a card made with this folding technique that was quite simple, but it got my brain excited about double sided papers. The embossed gold matted sentiment was gorgeous but it got lost in the golden yellow hues of the card. Instead of frantically trying to figure out what I had done wrong, I paused and let the card tell me what was needed— in this case a bit of green contrast. Embellish just enough. I admit I’ve thought “if a little is good, more is better.” However, embellishments require balance. Your eyes will lead you to that just right amount. The blue turned back edges were a perfect place for the fall border stickers and the sentiment was nicely set off with floral thankfulness stickers. This card made my heart smile and I excitedly tucked it in an envelope and sent it filled with birthday greetings to a dearest friend. Contented sigh….”
We adore this card from Susan! She wrote, “I made this Halloween version of your theatre card from FSL.”
Shari made this creative card that she called, “Variation of Card 3 from Finishing School Class.”
In Finishing School our friend Ginny shared, “Having fun with the new angel jacket. So many ways to decorate this, it’s such fun.”
Carla has a cute way to store cards! She said, “I’m always revamping my old typewriter case/card storage. This time I used Anna’s big fat mailers for month dividers. I like how it turned out. #HappyCrafting!”
How cute is this card that Heidi showed us in Finishing School? She wrote, “Well I had to share my Congratulations to my Parents on their adoption of a cute puppy. His name is Kobe. What better way to use the toppers for baby cards. It worked out to be perfect. The foliage dies are just amazing Anna. First time using them and I am in love. Also take a look this is 4 die cuts a topper, cute 3D dog along with the leaves and the use of floral border. That would make this almost an 8 layer card. More is more ?”
Yukari makes the loveliest cards. She shared, “Thank you Anna and team for another Charm School tutorial! I learned a lot from it and had so much fun making these cards.”
Keep posting all of your pretty projects, especially next week since it is our last Craftspiration before All Hallows Eve! Happy creating!
