Creative Guest Designer at Inspired By!

Good Morning - I was just thrilled to be invited by Tracey McNeely to be the focus of this week's Inspired by All the Pretty Things challenge!  This is one of my favourite challenges - the inspirational photos just get my creative juices rolling rolling rolling!!  Head on over and find out a wee bit more about little old me!

So how about this week's photo?! How could you NOT be inspired - such a pretty theme, not to mention those autumn colours - I can feel it in the air - can you?!

The mum's just drove me crazy so I dug out Papertrey Ink's Mum's the Word stamp set and dies and stamped away to my hearts content.....:)

Using my MISTI (which makes this kind of stamping soooooo easy)  I used three different Papertrey Ink inks on the mum's - Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise and Canyon Clay. All those cute little leaves were stamped with Papertrey Ink Green Parakeet and New Leaf.

Using the Sentiment Splits: Curve Vertical Die, I diecut white and Harvest Gold cardstock.  I only showed a sliver of the Harvest gold to highlight the yellows in the mums - I'm so so so so smart hah!

The patterned paper is from the Woodblock Prints Patterned Paper Collection - I love the autumn colours!

I stamped the sentiment, from Sentiment Splits Stamp Set, in Versafine Onyx Black ink and popped up one of the smallest little mum's as an embellishment.

So happy to have been a guest this week at Inspired by All the Little Things - thank you to Tracey for having me design this week - LOVE it!!

  3. Your mums are colored so beautifully and I'm not sure I have this right, but I'm guessing you just partially inked up the stamps with the different colors? LOVE this card and am always a fan of all of your creations! So happy to have you guesting with us!
