Any excuse is a good excuse to go shopping! Right?
Today is day 6 of the awesome Kickstart Online Card Class that I am taking. Over the past couple of days, they have talked about getting inspiration from going “shopping” both inside your own craft room with supplies that you haven’t used in a while in addition to going window shopping online or in a retail store. Some of the teachers talked about window shopping in craft stores while others like to window shop at non-craft stores for inspiration.
I did both today. First I did a little window shopping online and found this really cool bedding set on Walmart’s website of all places. I loved the stark black and white contrast and the beautiful botanical pattern.
Then I decided to shop my own craft room and found a couple of old Gina K stamp sets that I forgot I had that I thought would be perfect for my card. One was even brand new and had never seen any ink! Oh my! I knew I had to use it. *Ü*
This is what I came up with...
I used some PTI black cardstock and CTMH White Daisy ink. After I stamped the image and the background, I felt like it needed a little tiny pop of color to separate the front panel from the background, so I added a 1/8" border of Tulip cardstock and I think it helped. I also added some 3-D Foam Tape to the panel to give it a bit of dimension. It’s hard to see in the photo, but it does have dimension. I promise. LOL!
Looking at the inspiration photo again, I think I may make an envelope liner by random stamping a small botanical pattern with some gray ink.
What has inspired you to create today? *Ü*
