Inspired by Flowers


It has been a while since I participated in the Inspiration Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  For this week's ICS586 participants are to choose an image from Dribble that inspires us to create a card. This image called Flowers inspired me to create today's card.  

I chose the old SU set Dream a Little to create the flowers on 3 colors of cardstock that match the colors in the inspiration piece.  I stamped the flowers with WW craft ink and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.  The colors in the inspiration piece move in a glowing way, so I rubbed coordinating ink over each flower to give them a glow.  I always like to add a little sparkle to my cards and the silver star sequins are a great finishing touch.

Daisy Sympathy


This is a sympathy card I CASE'd from this card I found on Pinterest.  I changed the card from the original by using soothing blue tones, and small flower brads instead of ribbon.  I added a butterfly with a sequin to cover up a small smudge.  It was easy to get perfect placement of the stamped images using my MISTI.

Stamps:  Upsy Daisy, Close as a Memory - SU
Paper:  WW, Midnight Muse, DP
Ink:  Midnight Muse, Baja Breeze
Accessories:  MISTI, Butterfly punch, Brads, Sequin
