Lovin' the Ideas

Sometimes when I am looking for inspiration I head for the Stampin' Up! catalogues and can always come up with something. The following card is one that appears in the current catalogue on page 81. Here is my take on it:-

Although the one in the book uses a different stamp set that I don't have I came up with a lovely stem from Petal Prints. I also cut out the flowers from a stamp in the Dreams du Jour set. Not a likely combination but I think it came up a treat.

I used the lovely Baja Breeze cardstock for the base of my card followed by a piece of Baja Breeze patterned DSP. I then tore a layer of Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. My stem image has been stamped in Basic Black and then coloured with a blender pen using Kiwi Kiss ink.

Hope you like it!! I always find plenty of inspiration in all of the Stampin' Up! catalogues and always manage to change them to suit what stamps I have.

Hi Karen,

I too just love CASING ideas from the catalgoue - you seem to get soooo many more cards made when you dont have to do the thinking! lol

This card you know I love since I was lucky enough to see it in person! I really enjoy it when you give me a show and tell of what you all get up to on a Wednesday - you all are such creative girls!
