More Inspiration from "CYL Never Stop Dreaming Project Kit"

 Hello friends!

I am delighted to share more inspirations from this month's Craft Your Life Kit. The "Craft Your Life Never Stop Dreaming Project Kit" simply got me inspired that I can. not. stop. creating. This was one of the cards that I made with this kit.

Today's post is about using the stamp and the rest of the die. There are just THREE steps to create this card. Think about elements, balance and white space in particular.

 I started out with creating a large white-embossed piece with one of the floral image. As you can see this image, is so large that it covers the entire card front. Next, we have to think of an extra element to counter-balance it.

 That's when I decided to die cut the label piece from this kit.

 With these two strong elements, it's time to think about the background. Based on the pattern paper, I inked up the white card stock with teal, blue and a touch of green.

Adding a few splatter here and there does the trick. I even add a few white droplets and that seem to bring out the white-embossing even more!

One thing is for sure, when you gather just a few striking pieces and make them look cohesive. That always seems to work!  Today's card is pretty much like that. Grouping the 2-3 pieces to create a cluster is a good go-to. I hope today's post gets you inspired!

Here are the other projects that I made with this kit.

You absolutely achieved the ideal balance of color and white space. Love the spatter, the bit of shine and the Virginia touches.

Nice combination. I like the created background to tie in all the colors used.

The gold label balances the large white embossed floral piece so nicely! The background is lovely and goes so well with the flowers. Love the added splatter and drops.
