It’s been a lovely week of holidays following the excitement of Onstage. I’ve put up my Christmas Trees (no, it’s not too early!!), done some Christmas shopping and spent time in the craft room.
I have my regular card making class on Saturday and the ladies are always up for a challenge (hehe, well I like to think so!), so I decided to check out Bronwyn’s tutorials over at Addinktive Designs.
I decided to have a try of the Window Box Bridge Fold card, which you can check out here.
I have used the Falling Flowers stamp set with the co-ordinating May Flowers framelits. I also used the Petal Garden DSP stack and took the colours of the stamping and card stock from that. I have used Old Olive, Pool Party, Rich Razzleberry and Sweet Sugar plum.
When cutting out the flowers, I felt that they needed a bit more colour so I used my blender pens and coloured in the flowers.
For my sentiments, I used the Birthday Banners stamp set and the Window Shopping stamp set, so that the ladies have a couple of different options.
In the centre of the flowers, I have used a glitter enamel dot for a bit of sparkle. I’ve also added Wink of Stella to the smallest flower.
If you would like the tutorial to create a Window Box Bridge Fold card, make sure you head on over to Bronwyn’s tutorial shop and purchase yours today.
I’d love to hear what you think about my version of the Window Box Bridge card, so please leave me a comment.

Welcome to our second challenge for Colour INKspiration!! The first challenge was amazing, we had over 100 entries!! Well done to everyone who joined in.
Here is the colour inspiration for this week. We have Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky, Mint Macaron, Whisper White and Garden Green. You can also use a couple of neutrals like basic black, crumb cake etc.
I decided to make a gift box using the new Window Box thinlits die. It is soooo pretty!! I love how it comes with different inserts so you can change the look of the box easily. I really love the cut out for the top so I used that on my box. I created my flowers using the Botanical Builder framelits. I sponged them for some texture and painted them all over with Wink of Stella. The photos don’t show just how shiny it is!!
I then just added a bow to dress up the front and side of the box. I’m not sure who the lucky recipient of this box is but maybe I should give it to my husband so that he can put my birthday present in it!! Although he might need more than one box (hint hint, nudge nudge).
Next up on the hop is my Onstage roomie, Bronwyn, who has the most amazing project to share with you!!
Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month at 7 pm (AEDT), a new colour swatch will be uploaded to the Facebook Colour INKspiration Group and the Colour INKspiration Crew will get the ball rolling by providing inspiration for each challenge with a blog hop.
