Textile Inspired Lacy & Lovely Card

Stampin up demonstrator order online catalog circle punch blog card ideas
I want to express a quick thank you for all your kind words and congrats on my awards post yesterday.  Your feedback then and throughout the year (and, for some of you, much longer than that) keeps me focused, motivated and warms my heart.

It’s nice to be back playing with my paper, stamps and ink again.  Today’s card was inspired by this outdoor rug in a home d?cor catalog.  Clothing and home d?cor catalogs are often a source of inspiration for me!

  • Stamping bright colors (Tempting Turquoise and Lucky Limeade) on Crumb Cake card stock produces a unique look and style.
  • A single Bright Glimmer Brad (Tempting Turquoise) is the perfect pop of sparkle.
  • SNEAK PEEK!  I used the new 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch for the top left element.  It’s going to get a lot of use from me and will be available for purchase August. 1 in the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.

  9. Thanks for showing where you get your inspiration. I think that will help me with getting ideas, not just CASE-ing your work! It was great to talk to you in person at Convention 2012 — I follow your work with great admiration.

  10. Love this Mary. The browns really make the Tempting Turquoise POP! It even has a western feel to it. Makes me think of conchos on a saddle.

    Well deserved in my opinion. Thanks for all the inspiration.
    Love this card. Might have made one or two of the scallops
    in lucky limeade just to see the difference. Can’t wait for that small
    scallop to add to my collection.
