Inspired by Nat

Lythan dared us this week @ Daring Cardmakers';

This week Lythan would like you to take a trip into a world of pure gorgeousness by visiting the blog of my lovely teamie Nat and getting inspired by her style. I have been a huge fan of Nat's since I started card making and I have seen her work evolve but it has always been current, stylish, clean but not simple and with a wonderful way with a focal point. Well that is my interpretation - I look forward to seeing what you take from Nat's signature style.

Nat's cards are always amazing - you can see her wonderful blog here; and her pinterest board full of beautiful cards is here :)

This is my Nat inspired card - filled with Nat's love of chevrons, die cut doilies, die cut words, Crate Paper and enamel :D

Josh turned from this little bean;

into a teenager last week;

A one layer card - Jase drew the little animal for me and and I added the balloon and text in PS.
Printed onto white cardstock, folded and a strip of striped paper (Heidi Swapp) added to the side.

"Elemental Inspiration"

Today is the first Friday of a new month, and so there is a new Daring Cardmakers' elemental inspiration challenge to play with :)
The pictures we choose for these challenges all have a variety of "elements" that we hope will inspire you to get crafting - and we'd like you to use a minimum of THREE of the elements you see to make a card.

Nat chose the beautiful image for March;

and using the dotty ribbon,paper flowers, pink and green colours and gold elements, I made this;

Don't forget to pop by the Daring Cardmakers' blog to see which elements inspired the DT :)
