Dream It Up with this months Inspirations Challenge

My inspiration is from this wonderful little Dreamweaver Stencil flower called Plumeria Crest. The fact that I have never seen a plumeria in real life almost makes this flower more intriguing to me. It's a favorite flower of mine. (Here's a photo of this beautiful flower.)

Now here is what I've created for today!

I started this colorful panel with the Pop Rectangle die and sponged Shabby Shutters and Shaded Lilac onto white cardstock. Then I added the Plumeria Crest with Pink Persimmon and let some of my sponging fall off the outside of the stencil edge. I liked the extra spot of color to go with the flowers.

The rest is just dressing with black paneled on both sides of the stenciled piece and some gray embellishments with a single shiny pennant.

Now let's see how the inspirations fell through Dreamweaver Stencils with the design team and some new members to the team. 
and the Dreamweaver Team "newbies":

Stencils: LS45 Plumeria Crest (Dreamweaver Stencils), LJ929 Pop Rectangles (Dreamweaver Stencils)
Paper: Pewter (Wausau), White (Neenah), Black (Hobby Lobby)
Ink: Pink Persimmons, Shutters, Shaded Lilac (Tim Holtz Distress Ink)
Accessories: ribbon, twine, heart pendant, sponge

  1. This is gorgeous! Love the colors and the design makes me think late 50's, early 60's, I guess it's the Pop Rectangles! I love it!

  2. The real flowers are beautiful. One of my favorite places to visit (3 or more times a year) is Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. Have thousands of pictures from there.

    Your card is an excellent capture of the real ones. Your card is simple but very elegant.

  3. This is beautiful! Love the layers of colors and the pops of red in your flowers. Your bow and heart embellishment are fantastic additions!

  4. What a fun combination of stencils! Great colors too. Plumeria is a really beautiful flower.

  5. Beautiful card Janelle! I love your combination of colors, and I agree, the extra pop of color from the "fall off" is a great touch.

  6. great colors. i forget about using color through the stencils on their own.

  7. Absolutely gorgeous Janelle! I love your extra spots of color. They really add interest to the overall design.

  8. I love that you put things together in color combos that I wouldn't have thought of, and they look so fabulous!

  9. I find this very pretty almost an Asian twist. I would like to try this;) thank you so much for sharing it. -con

  10. So pretty and the colors look great together :)

  11. Janelle I love the mix of the mod background with the plumeria flower! The two really work together beautifully. Now I have to get that flower...!

  12. I really like the colours and that background really works well with the flower stencil. very pretty.

  13. Gorgeous, gorgeous...so vibrant and pretty !!!
