With Gratitude--Stationery inspired


There hasn't been a lot of stamping going on around here lately.  I spent most of last week painting the mudroom by our front door, and for the past two days I've been cutting fabric for a new quilt.  Yay!  I'll try to share some photos of that project in a day or two.

I did have a few minutes to put an idea on paper over the weekend.  I had pinned an image that included a bright and cheerful notepad from Emily Ley, and I wanted to translate it into a quick and easy card.

Notepad by Emily Ley

I masked off the top of a white card base and stamped leaves and flowers from Paper Smooches' Reflections in Melon Mambo.  I wanted a bright yellow banner for the sentiment, but I didn't have any cardstock in the right color.  So I heat embossed the sentiment in white on a strip of white cardstock, then sponged the entire thing with Daffodil Delight ink.

Cardstock:  WPlus9 Design Studio (White)
Stamps:  Paper Smooches (Reflections, Chit Chat)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight), Versamark
Other:  Filigree (white embossing powder), Michaels (clear rhinestones)

What's inspiring your designs lately?

Thanks for stopping by today!  Have a good one!

Gorgeous Christina. Love the combination of Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight - definitely going to try that one.

Pinterest definitely inspires, but also we just received a cosmetics catalogue from one of the major department stores here - some of the packaging is divine.
