Funky Inspiration

Saturday's challenge on Splitcoast Stampers is an Inspiration Challenge, You can check today's challenge out here.

I chose to do some funky flowers and used some leftover Love, Elsie chipboard flowers that I had "hanging" around.

And yes, they were hanging - on my Clip-It storage system!

I keep forgetting to look through that thing even though it sits - sometimes in the way - right on top of my stamping area so I won't forget!!

Age takes care of a lot of things, as they say - memory being one of them!! LOL!

Just kind of a funky card with a pot of flowers! The pot is from My Favorite Things "Build a Bouquet" stamp set and I stamped it and stamped it again, cut it out and popped it up on the card.

Then I just added Love Elsie's chipboard flowers willy-nilly on the paper.

I brought it all together with the little teeny flower from the Build a Bouquet stamp set and added some stems with my copic marker.

The patterned paper is Basic Grey Lily Kate and the turquoise background is from Basic Grey Phoebe. Bsic Grey paper is so cool because you can interchange the paper from almost all of the paper packs!!

Well, I am heading over to a stamp auction today at Scrapbook Studio in Hyde Park! So cool!!

The idea is, that any money you have spent at Scrapbook Studio this past few months is worth the same amount of money at the auction. So if I had bought $200 worth of paper etc, then I have $200 to spend at the auction!

The articles they are auctioning are all the NEW stuff from CHA when they were there a couple of weeks ago!! So I get a chance to "buy" some new stuff before it is even available to the public!! How cool is that!!??

I think I should go early so I can spend more money so I have more money to bid!!



  1. Wow fabulous card! I love how the bouquet of flowers just pop out at you! Beautiful job!
