Celebrate, Smile, Saying Hello...FUSION~Navy Patterns


Welcome to the newest edition of FUSION Challenge~Navy Patterns, where we have a stylish, striking living room, paired with a friendly sketch, as inspiration sparks for the next two weeks.
My first two cards are the result of three inspiration sources: colours (obvious blue in the first; the yellow/peach from the tulips in the second), the sketch (teensy adaption with the sentiment) AND a trio of cards designed by ultra-talented, Debby Hughes: Live In The Moment Card Set Inspired By Instax Mini 8 With Capture Moments Stamp Set.

My first *case Debby* card, adapted for our sketch, turned out like this....

and my second, like so...

This masking/blending/stamping technique is fabulous! Indeed, you may see me giving it a go in the very near future!

Of course, I couldn't leave you without one of my beloved butterflies *grin*

Please head over to see my team-mates' creations for marvelous inspirations; their cards are navy-pattern gorgeous and sketch savvy!

Looking forward to seeing your designs in the FUSION gallery!

Thank you for dropping by; your visit is both welcomed and deeply appreciated!


  1. Wonderful work, Carol! Gosh, your blending always looks just wonderful and the images you chose are highlighted beautifully in the first two cards. The showstopper for me is that third one, though. So very striking! Wow!! Thanks ever so much for sharing. Hugs! :)

  2. My goodness are cranking out stunner after stunner and treating us to a delicious buffet of yummy eye candy!

    Speaking of sweetness...these cards are deliciously clean and simple! Really loving the backgrounds on the first two cards and totally loving the bold navy & white butterfly card - a dynamic color for a dynamic image!

  3. It's true. Every time I see a butterfly, I think of you! That last card is so you and so breathtaking! Gorgeous in that rich, deep blue. And I love your CASEs of Debby's cards. They are lovely in those soft and pretty colors. (You'll have to let me know which inks you chose and when you've gotten them and had a chance to play with them, too.) Sweet cards. Miss you!! xoxoxo Bev

  4. Three beauties, Carol! You are rocking the masking/blending/stenciling, girl! Go you! I'm loving that Fusion photo and wishing I had the guts to paint one of the ceilings in my home a bold color ... maybe some day! Hugs, Darnell

  5. perfect! Love your card trio!

  6. Great cards. Carol, and perfect fusion on the lovely navy butterfly.

  7. Fabulous group of cards! I love how you were inspired by all the different elements.

  8. Total awesomeness - 3 wonderful cards! I especially like the second one - how you echoed the colors on your background. The first one is pure fun!

  9. Oh my, look how inspired you were! Three fabulous cards! Great ink blending and splattering on the first two and the last one looks so crisp with the deep blue and white! You rock!
