Inspire Me Friday {Angles}

Good Friday morning to you, Crafters!!!  Delighted to be here sharing my latest project with the new DIY set!  This is such an ‘artsy’ looking set!  You mixed media people would have a hay-day with it!  Unfortunately, I don’t have any of those cool new mixed media supplies…yet…(I COULD be tempted, though;), but I did want my card to have an ‘artsy’ feel to it, so I settled on the colors of aqua, gray and silver.  And I’ve been awfully inspired by all the angles I’ve been seeing out there these days…decided to go with that trend also…

You can see I went with the ‘LEARN’ sentiment for my focal point.  I obviously wanted that to have an upward slant, and highlighted it’s positive message with some little chevron style arrows from the border included in the set.  (Learning new things always takes us in a positive direction, don’t you think?)  I played around a little and felt it looked nicer for that sentiment and it’s angle to stand out from the feathers in my background, so I stamped it separately and adhered it to my panel, giving the little arrows some additional dimension with foam tape.  Then I played with two different silver papers I had to add more layers, angles and dimension…

I finished it off by stamping the ‘something new everyday’ sentiment on the card base, and adding a few sequins, and I don’t know about those…I feel like I never have the exact color I need in the exact size I need…but it did need just a dab of further embellishing, and I think it looks better with than without;)  I appreciate you stopping in today!  There’s lots more inspiration to come from the other gals with this new set and the new Border Tape 1 set, so…stay tuned!

  1. Another stunning card Geri! I love how effective the two angled pieces of silver paper are in showcasing the beautifully stamped panel. The ink colors of the feathers are so soft and pretty and work so well with the silver. I really like the variation in the sequin colors, especially the darker colors and the vivid contrast they create with the lighter colors on the card.

    Absolutely gorgeous!

  2. You are a Jill-of-all-styles (the female counterpart to Jack-of-all-trades). The first time I visited your blog was to look at a tutorial on making seam binding flowers to put on an old fashion looking card (or sewn item; I can’t remember which).

    This card is as modern as can be. Both styles are impeccable. Your use of silver is out of this world, and when you pair it with blue, magic happens. I know how great your cards are, and still, I get blown out of the water every time. I hope you have a little time before the holidays the exercise your creativity – just for you (but it wouldn’t hurt to show us).
