Cloud 9 - challenge No. 1

There is a new challenge on the block - Cloud 9 celebrates all things Wplus9 and this is the inaugural challenge. And what better way to start than an inspiration photo of a party.

I haven't left myself much time to have a go at this challenge and this set has been sitting on my desk for a while.

What you need
Cardstock - SU white
Stamps - Wplus9 Magical Moments, Filigreed Frames
Ink - SU Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Peach Parfait, Apricot Appeal, Daffodil Delight;  HA Soft Pool
Gems - Kaisercraft

I have been missing from the blog lately - with school holidays and the usual round of appointments, there isn't much time left.  My daughter and I have been having some fun with distress inks and stains and she has loved watching the videos from "Chemistry 101".  I think the appeal is not only the host but also that there is no right or wrong design or perfect positioning which is ideal for someone experimenting with their own style.


  1. A fabulous take on the pic...
    love the graduated colors...
    so gorgeous! :)

  2. Oh, how pretty! I love the way you interpreted the photo; the colors look wonderful arranged that way! Don't have any of those stamps, but if this is a typical example I'll have to give them a look--such a cool feather shape and the label frame is wonderful too. I didn't get a chance to take that class; I'm glad you and your daughter were able to enjoy it together. Maybe we will see some of her stamping sometime!

  3. Love your take on the inspiration photo~ the light and airy feel of the stamps is just beautiful!!!

  4. Wonderful take on the photo. This set is one of the few WPlus9 sets I have, and I will remember how you used this image. It's so breezy and perfect.

  5. I don't think I would have had any idea what to do with this inspiration piece. You did a fabulous job!

  6. Hi Cassandra! You are SO clever! I absolutely love how you stamped that image...it's all so perfect. What a beautiful card. I am so happy you joined us this month! Thank you!

  7. So elegant! A beautiful card!

  8. Cassandra, I love the way you translated this challenge to your card. The graduated colors look so pretty, and I love the pattern you created with the feathers! So glad you joined us for this month's hop!

  9. What a cool pattern you created with those feathers! I love how you pulled the colors from the photo to create a gradient on your card, and the aqua frame just pops against the warm reds and oranges.

  10. What an elegant card? Love how you have used the peacock feather. Well done. So glad you played with us @ Cloud9:)

  11. Hi Cassandra, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  12. Hi Cassandra ~ gosh I haven't been over to your blog for so long, and I see I've been missing out. Lots of gorgeous creations from you! Nothing new about that though lol.

    Thanks for your comment on my post today - yes the Creative Elements set is from SU! and it's current so you can still pick it up if you want it ;)
