Welcome back to a new week of inspiration at TGIFC!  This is all about taking inspiration from the photo below.  What inspires you about this?

I love anything plaid, so my main focus was that, but I also love Sunflowers and Stampin' Up! have a gorgeous selection in the catalogue right now!  For my projects I started off with just one piece of Whisper White card.  I used the sunflower image from Jar of Flowers and stamped right down the middle in Early Espresso ink.  I coloured the images using the following Stampin' Blend Combos: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Soft Suede and then cut this card in half right through the middle of the flowers!

On this first card, I stamped a plaid pattern in the same ink colours before adding strips of glimmer paper to the stamped, cut artwork.  I layered this on the plaid card base with Dimensionals.

I used the Best Plaid Builder Dies to create the plaid pattern on the second card, giving it a much more dimensional look. I completed this card with strips of Early Espresso and Soft Suede card before tying off Linen Twine in a bow.  I think it lends the card a lovely rustic feel!

I hope you will find time to play along with us this week and TGIFC275.  Simply click on the inspiration photo at the top of this post to go to the TGIF website and enter your masterpiece!

I hope you are sitting down because this is my first blog post in like...........forever!  I think my TGIF team mates had given up on me too.  Sometimes, we just have to take a step back and just breathe. I am back now so lets dive right in to this weeks TGIF challenge!

I was always going to love this challenge.  Silhouettes are one of my most favourite cards to make.  It also turned out to be the perfect chance to use two stamp sets that haven't seen much ink, Waterfront and Snow Front by Stampin' Up!.

I have a free tutorial pdf download for you explaining how I made this card HERE or check out the FREE TUTORIALS tab at the top of this page for this and more ideas!

I hope this will inspire you to play along with us at TGIF this week.  To enter your own Silhouette masterpiece simply click on the #tfigc273 banner at the top of this post.  See you there!
