Yay!! for New Stuff!!

I don't normally do inspiration challenges, never knowing where to start. But this week's challenge at Just Add Ink just leapt out at me. I love the colours and the geometric shapes. Both seem to go perfectly with my new products out of the new catalogue. And were great for some masculine cards I need to make this week.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Work of Art (new), chalk talk and gorgeous grunge
Card: Smoky slate, basic black and whisper white
Ink: hello honey (new), basic black and basic gray
Accessories: chalk talk framelits and moonlight paper stack (new)

Fine Feathers Retiring

When I first saw the challenge at Off The Rails I thought there were too many colours to fit on one card. I figured the best way to get them all on was to find a patterned paper to match. But all I had were flowers and then I couldn't work out how to get the feathers on which was the second half of the challenge! So I made my own patterned paper with the fine feathers stamp set and lots of bright inks. I kept the card simple because I used so many different colours. I have a number of male birthdays this month and this will work perfectly.

Project Recipe
Stamps: Fine Feathers (retiring) and label love
Card: Rich Razzleberry, tempting turquoise and whisper white
Ink: Rich razzleberry, tempting turquoise, old olive and pumpkin pie
Accessories: Rich razzleberry ribbon (retired), artisan label punch and scallop tag topper punch
