This weeks challenge is to show you our source of inspiration and what inspires us. I was tempted to just post a picture of these three and wax eloquant on how they’ve inspired me to acheive new heights but that’s way to gushy for me. I could also tell you that they "inspire" me to run screaming down the hall yelling, "Where’s the Tylenol", but I don’t think that was what was meant by this challenge. So here’s the picture of my darlings and yes, they "inspire" me but I’ll show you my stamping inspiration as well.
I guess that I often use clothing and other’s cards as my main sources. I will tell you that I’ve sunk to new depths. I was shopping at Gymboree not long ago and I saw the most adorable outfit. I desperately wanted to purchase it for the stamping potential alone. How, oh how can I rationalize this purchase, even if it’s on sale! It’s September and it’s adorable little summer skirt. So not going to work for this season.. but if I buy it in a 2T it should do a double shot..wearable and stamp lift-able. So heres the skirt and the card. I want to use the pattern next time but for this I used it for a color combo..Always Artichoke, Soft Sky, Cameo Coral and River Rock and So Saffron. This was way more colors than I usually use, so that was fun.
- stamps: True Friend, Amazing to Zany
- Inks: Always Artichoke, Soft Sky, Cameo Coral River Rock and So Saffron
- CS: Always Artichoke, Soft Sky, Cameo Coral, River Rock and So Saffron
- Misc: Tuxedo Ribbon
Now, sample two. Figured I’d load you up on samples as I missed a couple of weeks of challenges. This was a card that my downline Michelle Neuendorf sent to me a bit ago. Very very cute. Here’s my variation and it’s one of the cards that we’ll be doing at the Vernon Park and Rec Christmas Class.
- Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Hostess Party Punch
- Inks: River Rock, Elegant Eggplant
- CS: Elegant Eggplant, Ivory
- Misc: River Rock Ribbon, Designer Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch
So go and sign up for the classes and then check out my stamping challenge sisters in crime!
