Closet inspired #3

Hi there!

Thanks for popping in to take a look at the third post in my closet inspired series !

For today's cards I focused on the inspiration piece as background . I added white die cut elements as I would wear this blouse typically with white jeans/accessories 💙

Here's number 1 :

... and number 2:

The inspiration :

I used :
  • Stencil (unknown manufacturer)
  • Distress ink - Salty ocean
  • Versafine black ink
  • Memory box pin point rectangle dies
  • Sentiments from Altenew ( Beautiful quotes & Amazing you)
  • Card 1: Bird cut from clip art image
  • Card 2: Bouquet from Silhouette online store Hero Arts Design ID #18686
  • Silhouette cameo

Hannelie, I absolutely love your closet inspired posts! You've inspired me to look through my own closet, though I suspect it will be a lot less exciting than yours! Gorgeous cards - love the delicate sprig of blooms, and how you made use of both pieces of background.

Love this concept! Wonderful cards too! I especially love that second one. Such a gorgeous design!

Gorgeous cards, Hannelie! I love both of them, but Card #1 is especially exquisite! The white bird looks awesome against the blue graphic design-ish background. The tone of blue is just like blue sky. I'm already looking forward to your Closed inspired #4! :-) Hideko xx

These are both just fantastic! The bird card is so uplifting and inspiring. I love that brilliant blue, too.

Two Vibrant blue and white blouse inspired creations, Hannelie. Both your die cuts are so beautiful with your geometric blue designs. TFS and always inspiring us, my friend. Hugs..

Oh, this is fun! I love your closet days. I can just picture you in this crisp blue and white in your hot weather. Hmmm... wonder how a cable knit sweater and waterproof boots would inspire a card. Not nearly as interesting. Two wonderful cards, Hannelie!

Darnell said...

Just stunning, Hannelie! I often look at my clothes (and tissue boxes) and come up with a card design in my head so I love this wonderful series!! Hugs, Darnell

Kudos to you Hannelie on this awesome series! What a grand concept and now I'm looking in my closet for inspiration beyond the usual. You are such an inspiration. :)

Nancy said...

WOW! Love them both! You are really out doing yourself on your Closet Inspired series! I love it!

You have some lovely clothes, Hannelie, and this is such an interesting way to get your inspiration. The design is striking both as a background panel and as a frame.
