Inkspirational Challenge #181~Designer's Choice (Escape the Ordinary, Pinkfresh Studio)

Hello,

Welcome to Inkspirational Challenge #181~Designer's Choice where I, as the 'choosing designer,' have selected a very wide open theme: Use Your Stash! You got it...bring on whatever you want!! Woo hoooo...easy peasy!


 Once again, we have our talented Guest Designer, Lindsey from Bashful Blogging, joining us. Please be sure to drop by her place to see her fabulous card and, if you have time, leave her some love! I know she'd be thrilled!

I used a newcomer from my stash for today's card...and enjoyed it so much that three cards happened. Pinkfresh Studio's Escape the Ordinary is a wonderfully whimsical stamp/die combination. The die cuts the aperture which, in turn, you stamp with the images. Everything in one pass of die-cutting and, if your alignment is spot on (thank heavens for the misti!) one bout of stamping. A bit of fussy cutting for the mountains + distress ink backgrounds + a  small amount of copic colouring = a trio of cards done in no time.



My wonderful teammates have interpreted the prompt in beautiful ways; please visit and leave them some love, which I know will be deeply appreciated:


Looking forward to visiting you in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

I’ve got this stamp set, but I wasn’t aware there are dies for this as well. I actually used the moon and the cluster of stars from this set on my card this week, but they’re quite hidden behind all that frantage. Inspiring to see your designs!

This is one terrific trio, Carol! So much interest and so much to look at on these cuties. LOVE that moon! And those stars are so perfectly placed! Your coloring, and the backgrounds you've created are just right. How fun are these cards?!! Love 'em! Bev
