STAMPlorations inspiration #47

There's a load of colorful, fun inspiration happening over at STAMPlorations today. Do check it out. I've done my part too. I made a shaker card for a little girl.

As inspiration I chose one of the many folk art photos that I'd pinned as ideas for using Shirley's Folk Flowers.

And cuz the inspiration reminded me of a shaker card, I went with that. So I'm joining the Shaker Card fun at Challenge Up Your Life #27 too. Oh and since I've used Shirley's stamps here I am going to join the Craft Stamper Take it Make it November challenge too.

My Mom is always telling me she needs more birthday cards for kids, so this one's going to her stash.


I kept to the same design of blooms and vines and used softer colors. I used the fronts and backs of the smallest flower and the small flower center to create my flowers. Used the front and back of the smallest leaf too, with lighter and darker green pigment inks.

And where's the bunny from, you ask? Take another look at the stamp set. See the center and right stamps in the top row. Stamped them in antique linen onto CS lightly inked with Spun Sugar DI and then colored with Copics and added eyes and a nose. Ta da! Bunny!


I swiped pink ink onto CS and used Avery Elle Build a Banner die. Heat embossed a sentiment from Party Time onto it. Layered a PP banner behind it too cuz I really liked the washi holding the sentiment label in the inspiration photo and wanted to mimic it.

Hope you're not sick of this stamp set yet. I've got more for you. Be sure to check out the Inspiration #48 post for a kinda crazy card, also Pinterest-inspired ;)
