Stampin' Up!

Welcome to another Makeover Monday Challenge. I love the card I made for today’s challenge for a few reasons:

  1. It is totally out of  my stamping "comfort zone" in terms of style and colors
  2. I made it with the new Flower Power Simply Sent Card Elements Kit (which I did not really like when I first got it, but it’s been growing on me)
  3. Lastly because this card is a perfect illustration of how totally different a card can look , even when the layout stays the same, by simply changing up the stamps, accessories and colors. You can see what I mean from the picture below.  You’d never put the two together would you?

Cards magazine

My original card inspiration came once again from the July 2007 issue of CARDS magazine (as my last couple of Monday MakeOver’s have).  Using magazines for inspiration is one of my favourite things to do.  I typically keep all my card-making and scrapbooking magazines and make a point of carrying a few of them around with me wherever I go so that if I get stuck in a line, or waiting at an appointment I have something to look at.  It’s one of the things that I feel helps me keep my creative juices flowing!

Now it’s your turn! Take a totally or at least mostly non-Stampin’ Up! card, 3D item or scrapbook page, and make it over using all Stampin’ Up! product.  Post it to your blog, Splitcoaststampers, or other photo gallery and link to this post.  Once you’ve done that, post a comment in the comments section of this post with a link to your card.  You can makeover as many projects as you would like. Each project gets you one entry into my monthly draw.  The winner is drawn the first Monday of the following month, and receives an item valued at $14.95 or less (CAN) from the current Stampin’ Up! catalogue.

Stay tuned tomorrow for my Tutorial Tuesday feature where I’ll be showing you how to create a beautiful sunset-type background using brayering and spongeing.
