Inspiration comes from everywhere

Hi to everyone and yes, inspiration does come from everywhere.  When you look at nature the different colours can inspire you to create.  How many different greens, reds, yellow, blues do you see out your window.  It's sometimes just deciding what to use, because really everything goes together.  No longer is there...."blue and green can never to seen".  So in the end it's just the decision and sometimes that is hard.

The card I'm sharing today is based on MOJOMonday 136 and somewhat based on CD 64 over at  It for my BFF's Mother who is gravely ill and I want her to know that I am thinking about her. 


Stamps: Vintage Labels
Paper: Very Vanilla, Textured and Plain CS), Always Artichoke, So Saffron, DSP (retired)
Ink: Always Artichoke
Accessories: Stampin Up original ribbon, dimensionals, 2 step bird punch, eyelet scallop punch (other), Pastels
Technique: Punch Art, Layering

This card is based on MOJOMONDAY 136. The idea of the flowers came from Ruth M on Split Coast Stampers.

1. The card base is the textured very vanilla and is a 5 x 5 square.
2. The eyelet scallop punch is used along one side of a strip of so saffron and attached to the DSP and layered on the card base.
3. The flowers are made using the 2-step bird punch and using the wings. 3 wings are attached together to resemble a flower and each petal was coloured using the pastels to give them dimension. A piece of the leaves are trimmed off and attached to the base of the flowers giving them a cup to rest in. Extra leaves are attached to the stems. All are attached to the plain very vanilla CS and layered onto the always artichoke when then is attached over the DSP. The sentiment is stamped on one of the layers.
4. The ribbon is attached along the bottom and a bird punched from always artichoke is attached using a dimensional.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and until next time........
