“In The Mood” Blog Hop

 We are so excited to announce the release of our newest online card class, In the Mood! Through mood board inspiration, our designers teach class participants many different ways that you can draw inspiration from the world around you. To celebrate the release of In the Mood class we have created a special In the Mood blog hop. Each of our designers, and some of our friends, have created a card based on this mood board.

There are 10 FREE class registrations hidden along the hop, so make sure you leave comments along the way.
The more comments you make, the greater your chances are of winning!

You have until 11:59 pm EST on Sunday, June 21st to leave a comment to be entered to win! Winners will be announced at on Monday on Catherine's Blog.

Sign up by June 24th to get access to a BONUS mood board and two extra video tutorials.

*************************
Here is the mood board that we are being inspired by today!  Isn't it stunning!  It has all kinds of cool aspects to it; butterflies, delicate flowers, cute little tea cups, beautiful glassware, stunning sunsets and even cool jewelry!  

I was inspired by not only the color scheme of the mood board but also by the gorgeous flowers and the China tea cups.  I took the colors and colored my poppies with the fun hues of blues, purples and pinks.  My simple image includes some pottery just like the tea cups and it of course showcases those happy poppies inside!


Here's a little close up of my blooms...

It’s time to hop along now. Click on each of the designers below…

Last but certainly not least. Your card is so beautiful. I barely got in under the wire on this hop. My time says 11:42 here in Florida. Thanks for your inspiration.

Kim said...

Ally, you never cease to amaze me with your talent. This is a beautiful card. I love how you incorporated the fringe. And you sure do use that border die in so many creative ways...I saw that used on a previous card and decided I just had to buy one...you should get a commission on all the things I buy because I see you using them on your cards. My cards don't look as nice as yours though....humm, wonder if I can buy your talent somewhere on line.

Tammy J said...

Ok I have to admit I have seen all the cards along the way but yours is by far my favorite. I love the flowers and the colors are not over bearing. Thanks for sharing.
