I don’t know about you, but I am always seeing card inspiration everywhere I go. Rob thinks I am a little crazy but if you are a stamper, I am sure you do the same thing. The other day I was in an unnamed craft store buying some candles and saw this pretty wreath. It was made of grapevine and had artificial flowers on one side. I took a picture of it because I knew I could make a pretty card with the same layout.
To make this card I first stamped the circle from the stamp set called Swirly Frames in Soft Suede Ink. Then I stamped the flowers and leaves from the stamp set called Beautiful Bouquet in Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Highland Heather and Old Olive inks. I cut them out using the matching dies called Bouquet Bunch. This stamp set and matching dies are big sets. The stamp set has 37 stamps in it and there are 21 dies. Both of them are being carried over into the new Annual Catalog.
What gives you inspiration? I would love to know.
This is beautiful! I can’t imagine the wreath could be any prettier. I take pictures of stuff all the time for inspiration. I always wonder what the store employees are thinking. I’ve stopped strangers to ask if I can take a photo of their clothes (usually a top; I make sure not to get their faces and show them the photo after so they know I’m not a creeper). Sometimes they look at me funny; Mike just says, “She makes cards,” like that explains everything. Then they look at both of us funny, but they’ve always said yes.
Susan, I love the beauty and simplicity of this card. Stunning
