STAMPlorations inspiration #21

Time for another dose of inspiration over at STAMPlorations. Well let me tell you, I am often inspired by cards I see in blogland, but seldom do I run to my craft room to basically recreate something I've seen. Today's card changed that.


I am showcasing the sentiment set, Fond Expressions, with its wonderful combination of handwritten froufrouness and clean san serif type. And a flower.


This glittered die cut technique is what I absolutely had to try after I had seen Gayatri's card for the current RIC challenge. In a nutshell... cut solid Winnie and Walter bloom from sticky paper (I ran scrap through my Xyron), outline from black. Adhere outline to solid, mix red, blue, gold and silver glitter and pour it on. Burnish with finger and voila! Chose a couple PPs from my stash to frame the bloom.



Um, and, I actually own J. Crew. That sure can't be said for most of the eye candy at RIC! Have a good one.

If you wanna CASE this card, join us over at the Inspiration CASE Playground.

And... Virginia L. recently posed the question "How do you solve a problem like Maria?". Well, I know the answer? You take her to the "hills (which) are alive with the sound of music" :) And a beautiful short weekend at Lake Constance was had by all. (I'm not into selfies, but I thought this fit the bill).
