Welcome to another edition of gallery highlights! I was so excited to see a lot of colorful cards in the galleries this week so I’ve included a fun selection for you today. And, of course, there’s also a couple of layouts that I couldn’t pass up. Let’s go take a look at this week’s finds and I hope you like them all as much as I do. Don’t forget – you can click on the links to visit the layouts in their galleries and view supply lists, leave a comment for the designer, or view the designer’s other work.
I love & miss you by kellyras
I first saw Kelly’s card a couple of weeks ago and have been drooling over it ever since. First, I love the color scheme. Red, white and blue is such a classic color scheme but Kelly’s use of light blue hues in her card brings a bit of modern sophistication to the color scheme. It’s an absolutely beautiful combination and I can’t wait to see more of Kelly’s work.
Loving You More Each Day by limedoodle
I have to be completely honest and tell you that I’ve recently adopted two cats from our local shelter so I may be partial to Debby’s choice of embellishments but no one can dispute how adorable this card is! She has used stamps, inks and die cuts to perfection here, as well as utilizing dimensional adhesives beautifully. And that brick wall is simply inspired. This is one of my favorite cards ever!
Forever card by tonyadirk
Tonya’s card is another one of my favorites! I always love the combination of bright colors with black and white but Tonya’s rainbow-patterned embellishments are fabulous. She included buttons and twine on each ticket and her title placement is great. It’s just a beautiful card!
Winter Layers by jen kinkade
Jen’s layout is entitled “Winter Layers” but it also could be titled “Beautiful Layers” because she is a master of layering papers, embellishments, photos and tags. There is so much to look at in this layout but my favorite parts are the layered clouds on the top and the circular twine layered under her journaling tag. That’s a fantastic way to add a bit of fun to a layout! Jen created this layout for her position on Ormolu’s creative team. You can see more of her work on the Ormolu blog.
Legendary Donut by TamiG
Tami’s layout is not only fun but also very well designed. She used a busy piece of patterned paper as her background but then matted white cardstock on top of it and then layered her photos, title and journaling on the white cardstock. The literal white space in her layout gives the eye a place to rest and doesn’t overwhelm you even though her photos and her patterned paper are very busy. Fantastic layout!
And there you have them – our gallery highlights! I love all of these and I really do wish we had time and space to feature more of the amazing designs out there. Thanks so much to all of the designers who shared their work with us this week. What were your favorite gallery layouts last week?
