Inspired by Amy


I was reading Amy's blog and was so inspired by the scrap happy cards she was doing with Basic Grey scraps that I decided to try some too (check out her blog here http://heartfeltgreetings.blogspot.com)
-
I used paper scraps from 3 different BG lines, Sublime, Gypsy and Phresh&Phunky and somehow managed to get them to blend together! The flowers are from the new "Doodle This" set from the Spring Mini - I stamped the images on white paper and used the earth elements watercolor crayons. You can't see the sparkle, but every flower is decorated with stickles from Cindy's Blog Candy that I won last week.
-
I also added a couple more pieces of chipboard from Basic Grey's undressed hardware package... for sale on my website here.... http://store.clothingcorner.com/bagrunch.html. I just sold out, but will have more in stock next week. This is a really great package of chipboard... the sizes are good and you get a little bit of everything, buckles, frames, tags, photo holders, etc... The long piece of chipboard was watercolored with the w/c crayons, the frame was decorated by adhering basic grey paper to the board with Tombow Mono Multi (green cap) - this stuff is THE BEST! I also sanded the edges and distressed with a sponge and brown ink.
-
Thanks for looking, and don't miss out on winning one of these projects - simply leave a comment and you're automatically entered to win! Plus this week I'm adding a few sheets of stamped images from one of the Spring Mini sets I've featured this week - your pick the set!
-
One last thing.... I sometimes see questions left in comments, but I never get around to answering because I'm so scatterbrained!! If you have a question about a technique, color, product... anything!! Just email me at blog@clothingcorner.com - I'd love to hear from you!!

Everytime you make a new card, I have a new favorite. I just couldn't imagine seeing your cards in a store or something, because I would just have to buy them ALL and go totally broke!! LOL
You should definately sell your cards, you could retire early!!

Another beautiful card. This one looks quite complicated. I'd be curious to know how long it took to create it. I love it.
