Winter 2016 Inspiration Board #6

Here is the next installment of our Winter 2016 Inspiration Board Collection…Enjoy!


Starting to cut the paper from the welcome pack is always the hardest part for me!  When I looked at the paper on the flower trim.  I needed something more – but do I dare cut my beautiful stripes?  Jen says I am the artist in charge!


For the layout I wanted use the flowers from the welcome gift and I had this vision of a flower as a frame for the picture.  Emily suggested a white marker on the flower, but it didn’t work as well as I would have liked.


I wanted to try and make a card that was somehow connected to the layout- so I traced the flower – then used the embossing folder.  I also wanted to try my new aqua painter which I used on the embossed white card.


Layering as many of the patterns is always a challenge.  At first I thought I would put the layers on white, but I decided the background pink was even better than the white background.  I love my Celebrate stamp and was so excited  to use a variety of colors on the stamp.  I don’t usually use my markers, but it was fun to color each of the sayings a different color!


One of my new Paper Pumpkin kits came with flower stamps called Blissful Bouquet.  I was excited to try the new stamps on my own creation.  It was fun trying to use all my Stampin’ Spot colors to see how many flowers I could fit!  When I was finished I felt like something was missing!  Emily suggested using liquid pearls in the center of the flowers to make it stand out even more and it looked great!


I really wanted to try and use my new balloon bash stamps.  I wanted to experiment and try to use a variety of colors on the stamp.  I made a bow and wasn’t sure where to use it – but it was perfect on top of this card.


This card uses a variety of papers – I also wanted to have all the papers seen at once.  I was glad the way the stamp worked on the circle – the flower trim is exactly where it needs to be.

Stay tuned for even more Inspiration Board projects!  🙂
