#853 – Inspiration Station Challenge #08

Hello and welcome! I kinda feel that we are early on this time’s Inspiration Station challenge – I mean, we have definitely completed our projects earlier than last time, but still… feels more earlier! 😀

This time, it was my sister’s turn to choose the challenge, and she prepared a tic-tac-toe board for us –

Inspiration Station 2020-01-14

I initially wanted to go with Green-Stamps-Stencils combination, but when my newly ordered Altenew Dare to Dream stamp set arrived, I changed it to yellow, since I wanted it to be a feature on my card. And here’s what I ended up making –


So I chose a few shades of yellow, pink, green and kraft shaded inks, and stamped them. I confess I suck at aligning them all properly, so the gaps between the different patterns is all over the place. In fact, that’s the reason I didn’t stamp them horizontally and went for diagonal stamping instead.

Once done stamping, I trimmed the panel a bit, then die cut it with Paper Trey Ink Center Style Feminine die, then foam mounted the outer frame and adhered the inner piece using double sided tape.


For the sentiment I went to Altenew Bold Alphabets and used foam tape to adhere it to the card. The stamped piece of the sentiment comes from Altenew Adore You stamp set. I stamped it in black, trimmed it and then foam mounted it on the card.

Since the card was already loaded, I didn’t add any extra embellishments. And that finished my card.

Checkout what my sister created for this challenge – I must say, I get more and more amazed by what she creates with mixed media every time! I totally loved it, and I bet, so will you!

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –

  2. Wow.. Wonderful card Ashwini ! I am really inspired by the way you use different stamps and dies on your card.The stamped pattern looks interesting and what i loved most is the frame !

  3. What a beauty, Ashwini! A fab card from top to bottom… but I just LOVE the top a little more :), just because of the perfectly placed sentiment stripe, it fits wonderfully with the big alphas!

  4. You sisters started a challenge? When did that happened. How long has it really been since I visited your blog, seriously !
    I haven’t been up on my blog much other than the scheduled DT posts, and your blog is on my bookmarks, so I used to visit. But I feel like I have missed so much. I had been quite occupied, I should update my story in WhatsApp to you 😉
    I just realized, I didn’t even comment on.the card yet 😅
    I see the grunge like design inspired you from.the inspiration board, lovely warm shades.
