Top Picks #84 - Photo

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who played along with us in our photo challenge! I can definitely say that our design team was very split on this decision. There was so much talented work shared in our photo inspiration challenge. Here are our top picks:

 We were in awe of Sonja's clean design and beautiful flowers. This was a perfect card for our inspiration photo!


This card is very pretty! We really found that the essence of the photo - time to read, to relax, to enjoy beautiful surroundings - is conveyed wonderfully.

We just love Karen's unique design! The softness of the flowers is really bought out by boldness of black background squares.

Congratulations to our top picks!

Challenge #85 Word Prompt - Wild

Welcome back to Inkspirational. This week we have a word prompt - WILD - and a wonderful guest designer:

Hi everyone. I am very excited to be guest designing at Inkspirational! My blog is called My Paper Epiphany and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm on the design team of the Mixed Media Card Challenge. 
I've been stamping and making cards on and off for about 17 years. It became a real passion when I discovered all the online blogs and challenges and decided to join in the fun. I love the online paper crafting community - it is so wonderful to be able to get inspiration, share my 'art'  with like minded people and get so much encouragement.
I spent a while trying to discover my 'own style' and then eventually decided I should embrace the diverse nature of my creativity. I love playing with all media and get excited when I discover something new to play with. I love CAS, watercolour, Mixed Media, collage, vintage and so on .....

I hope you'll visit Jenny's blog  and leave her a comment.

Here are some ideas from our DT:

Top Picks #83 - Purple

Current challenge HERE.

Thank you to all those who played along with us in our purple challenge! Another congratulations to our designer Pia on her wedding!

For our special wedding challenge we have a prize winner who will be randomly chosen from the entries that participated in both the purple challenge and the wedding challenge. As we need more time to check we've allocated the extra entries to those whose cards had a wedding theme, we will make the draw as soon as we can.

As always, here are our top picks:

This card is just stunning with the elegant gold and watercolor touch!

 Stephanie created a funky, grunge background that looks fantastic with the clever sentiment design!

Magic Flying Boots
 We love how this card screams softness. The painted flowers are so beautiful!

In honor of Pia and her wedding, we asked her to make another special top pick!

 Sarah hit the mark with Pia's style and color preference for a wedding! Such a beautiful card with the faded coloring and clean design!

Congratulations to our top picks!

Challenge #84 Photo inkspiration

Thanks for all the MANY wonderful entries into our surprise wedding/purple challenge and prize draw. We hope to announce the lucky winner next Saturday.

Our challenge this time is to use the picture above to inspire you.

Please welcome our fabulous Guest Designer ( who also designed our blog) :


For those of you who don't know me, my name is Kylie and I am a craft and blog addict.
Now that my confession is out of the way, here is a little about myself. I started cardmaking and blogging in 2012 and love every minute of it. Three months after I started blogging (Kylie is Addicted to Stamps), I decided that I needed to create my own challenge blog so Addicted to Stamps and More was born. I have met so many wonderful people through that venture and formed friendships that will last a lifetime. 
After making cards for a few months, I came to the realisation that Clean and Simple is my style. Why not create another challenge dedicated to CAS? So I did - Addicted to CAS ;) A few months ago, I felt the need to expand again so I created a craft forum called Happy Little Stampers - a place to chat, share and inspire fellow crafters. I love being part of the craft community. 
I have now started up my own little design business creating watermarks, blog signatures and blog headers. Please email on if you would like to know a little more about this. 

We will be choosing  a top pick/s from this challenge and inviting one entrant to join us as a Guest Designer. 

We're sorry that we may not be able to comment on cards that are uploaded to galleries where we have to register to comment (eg Splitcoast Stampers), or where word verification is enabled. When we can view your card, however, we will still consider it for our top picks.
