Now let's check out the inspiration from our talented design team...

Corry  I have made this project for your inspiration.
I made the background with distress ink and sprinkled it with water. After that I used stencils and text stamps.  I colored and cut out the girl, and glued it on the background. Then I stamped the flowers, bird, and butterflies, and blended it with chlorine. I punched the flowers in the hair and finished with some glitter here and there.
The products that I worked with are:

Belle-papillon clearstamp set

Terry: I have made a colorfull card to send you Loads of Wishes for the new year....
I worked on the background with Distress Oxide, background stamps from different stampsets. When the background was dried up I stamped some flowers on the card. I colored them with Distress Inks. Than I stamped some butterflies from the clearstampset from Polkadoodles and colored those with Distress Inks. On top of the flowers and the butterflies I played with Nuvo drops, to give them a bit of a 3D look. Last but not least I stamped the sentiment on the card. 

The products that I worked with are:

Jane - Happy New Year everyone! I have decorated a MDF tag with papers, stencil paste and stamps. I then added die-cuts and download images and a stamped and embossed sentiments.
Polkadoodles goodies used:
