Always Blessed Card Concept

Hi friends!  Happy Wednesday!  It's time for another inspiration challenge over at The Card Concept!

I was inspired by the colors and cascading flowers to make this vintage/shabby chic creation using an old favorite, Be Blessed.  These solid blooms make my heart go pitter patter and purple on a card always reminds me of my grandmother who loved the color lavender.  I stamped the two sizes of flowers in perfect plum and blackberry bliss, then cut with the coordinating Petal Points Die Set and lightly inked the edges with gathered twigs distress ink.


The sentiment panel is sponged with blackberry bliss and gathered twigs and I stamped a couple of the leaf images from Be Blessed in the corners, then embossed the sentiment in white.

I found a bit of lace to accent the edge of the sentiment panel and then layered it all together, finishing off with a few flatback pearls for the flower centers.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll take a bit of time to head on over to The Card Concept and see what beauties all the other designers came up with for this pretty inspiration piece.

Shabby Bunny Mojo

Hi friends! It's Monday again and time for another Mojo Monday sketch.  This week brings back an old feature, round or square.  The sketch is laid out in both round and square formats and you can pick either for your card.  Hope you have fun with it!

I went square for this shabby little baby card. I had a few scraps on my desk that I thought would be fun to piece one of the bunnies from the Hip Hop Bunnies set with, so I did.  My favorite stars & swirls embossing folder added some texture.  The sentiment is cut with the stitched circle in the Springtime Stitches Die Set and I finished off with shabby edges and a few aqua pearls.

Aqua and Coral Mojo

Hi friends! It's Monday again and that means it's time for another Mojo Monday sketch.

My card started with the aqua and coral color trend I've been noticing around stores lately.  On a recent shopping trip, even the grocery store had an aqua and coral bike displayed out front!  So when I sat down to stamp, I picked out these colors, then selected the Rise Above stamp set and coordinating Partly Cloudy Die Set and got to work.
