CSS - Inspiration Blog Hop - 6/10/2011

It is another StampTV blog hop and this time it is an inspiration challenge. It is a really fun inspiration and there are a lot of options. The colors were really fun to work with. So summery!  You should have arrived from Melissa Shultz blog and I am quite certain that she wowed you!

For my first card I used Celebrate in Style. This stamp is so fun and I thought of it as soon as I saw the inspiration photo! I stamped the image on GKD Pure Luxury white and then paper pieced the dress with GKD Red Hot. I stamped the flower twice from GKD Lovely Shelf. I cut it out very carefully and used some fibers for the center of the flower. For the background I used an Impressibility and then sponged some green on it. That bow really arrived on an end of the year teacher gift and knew I had to use it for this card! Perfect isn't it?

The second card was more of a challenge for me. I liked the red and yellow sunflowers and wanted to use them somehow. So I inked up one of the stamps from Spring Basket and another one from Border Bling. Then I used a border punch for the side of the card and some Stickles to add the twinkle! Does the white ribbon look like a tablecloth? I colored the flowers with Copics and cut those out very carefully too! I did do some fussy cutting with these.

Your next stop is bound to be impressive so hop over to visit Sharri Seffens to get even more inspiration.  If you want to start at the beginning  or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.


As always, your comments really do mean a lot to me. Thank you for leaving them.
