Hey there, friends! I have an extra special post for you today. My sweet friend and fellow WPlus9 fan, Suzanne Dahlberg, decided to start a monthly blog hop for WPlus9 customers to showcase their creations. Each month there will be a theme or challenge for inspiration, and to kick things off this month Suzanne has chosen a fun and colorful photo.
I am absolutely delighted and honored to have been invited to be a part of the Inspiration Team for this monthly challenge. Two of my favorite designers are also joining the team: Anya Schrier and Gayatri Murali. I just know that their creations will knock your socks off each month!
For my card this month, I was inspired by the colors, large flowers, and natural fibers on the table skirt in the photo. The brightly colored flowers became medallions on my card, and for the natural fibers I used some rustic twine and a muslin pocket.
To make the pocket, I used spray adhesive to attach a scrap of muslin to white cardstock, then die cut and stamped the pocket with A Pocketful. I cut a simple tag to fit inside the pocket and stamped it with aqua medallions and a sentiment from A Pocketful.
Cardstock: WPlus9 Design Studio (White), Papertrey Ink (Fine Linen, Aqua Mist)
Ink: Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Pool Party, Chocolate Chip)
Tools: WPlus9 Design Studio (pocket die), Papertrey Ink (woodgrain impression plate), hole punch, corner rounder
Accessories: The Ribbon Carousel (natural twine)
Thanks so much for your visit! I'm still 4 days behind on my blog reader, so forgive me if I haven't been by to say hello lately. I hope you're having a great start to your week!
