Hello crafting friends. We lost our treasured friend and teammate Lindsey last week, following her hard-fought battle with cancer. Lindsey was well-known for her amazing creativity, witty sense of humor, and immense capacity to support and encourage her design team members and challenge participants. The crafting community will miss her shining light.
Today The Seize the Birthday Team is playing along with our sister challenge – Color Hues challenge. Lindsey was a Design Team Member for both the teams. The Color Hues challenge this time was to be hosted by Lindsey, so all of us want to honor and celebrate her beautiful, creative life by sharing “Lindsey Inspired” projects using her Blue and Purple combination, along with things she loved the most, as inspiration. We hope that you will join us as we pay tribute to our dear friend and teammate.
Here are a few of her favorite things: humor, cats, gardening/flowers, love of reading, friendship, wine, tea. Lindsey loved Clean and Simple cards too.
Here’s what I made, with Lindsey’s cards as inspiration:
I started with the rose, from Altenew Build a Flower: Rose, stamped it in colors of blue, purple and dark grey and cut it out using the co-ordinating dies. I also cut out a frame using Paper Smooches Frame 2 from kraft cardstock. I then adhered this in the center of the white card base.
For the sentiment, I used Avery Elle Laurels and Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words, stamped them in VersaFine Black Onyx ink, fussy cut it and adhered it on the card. And that finished my Lindsey-inspired card.
We would love for you to join the Color Hues challenge. You can find all the details along with inspiration from both of the Design Teams over at the Color Hues blog.
