Hi stampers! I think I've mentioned before that I like Lularoe clothing. I wouldn't call myself obsessed or anything but a number of items have found their way into my closet. They have some great color and pattern combinations and I find them pretty inspiring for stamping! Recently, a berry burst dress wound up in my closet with a vest that was soft suede, berry burst, and crushed curry flowers. Sitting in church on Sunday, I realized that it would make a fabulous card (I promise I was paying attention to the message as well, hehe). So, during Ian's nap, I whipped this up.
Annnnnnd....I kind of LOVE it! I've not made a lot lately that I LOVE so this was a fun surprise!
I stamped the flowers in soft suede and then used clear embossing powder over them really quickly. If you're fast, you can totally emboss with our classic inks. I did this rather than watercoloring with it because I tend to have trouble with the red separating out with soft suede so I thought this was a great way to avoid that but still incorporate the color like I wanted to. My doily needed something so I sponged it with berry burst. A few of our glitter dots were the finishing touch along with a few gold accents. The dots are great because they come in various shades. For instance, if I'd used so saffron as my yellow, a few of the lighter shade dots would have worked well even though the catalog says they are crushed curry. I love when things are versatile!
Again, don't be afraid to cut your sentiments up into little bits and pieces. It often works a lot better than the whole thing, this one sure did! And adding a little bit of black card stock really made the sentiment pop!
Inspiration is all around us. Where do you look for inspiration?
