CSS - Inspiration Blog Hop - 3-12-2013

It is another StampTV blog hop. The challenge for us this time around is an inspiration photo. You should have arrived from the fabulous blog of Tera Fujan with what I am sure was a wonderful project or maybe 2!


I chose to go with the colors and the basket idea from this inspiration photo for this card. I have a new granddaughter coming in May and this card will now be all ready for her. I used Spring Basket and Basket Additions 2 for this card. I colored the images with my Copic markers and found the dot paper circle in my basket of rejected designer paper scraps - how perfect was that? The paper was GKD Pure Luxury White and Bubblegum Pink. I was very happy with the way this card turned out. 

This card is for my granddaughter Victoria's birthday later this week. I chose to use Beyond Baskets with the Basket Additions 2 for this card along with the pretty patterned paper called Petals and Wings. I also used GKD Pure Luxury Bubblegum pink and Cranberry tart. Lots and lots of paper piecing with this card. 
Now hop on over to visit Lori McAree, for some more fabulous eye candy. 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.

Thanks for stopping by and always thanks for commenting.

Your first card is so sweet Miesje (I almost used the same image!!) And isn't it funny we used the same paper in your second card?! Love all your paper piercing!
