Lots of Challenges and an Interesting Inspiration

I haven't even eaten breakfast yet and have a post!  It is going to be a busy day, so I wanted to get this out before I begin my activities.  This card fulfills FOUR challenges:

ssnotime 38 challenge

I took a little liberty with the sketch and turned it on its side, and did not add the embellishment to the left side since there was a stamped image there that kind of fit the bill!  It is a little difficult to see, but very pretty IRL, that the left edge of the black panel is heat embossed with black ink.  It adds real elegance to this card, and I love how it turned out.  The flowers are colored with a So Saffron marker, then highlights were added with Summer Sun and a blender pen.  Here are the details:

  • Stamps:  Fresh Cuts
  • Paper:  WW, Basic Black, So Saffron
  • Ink:  Stazon, So Saffron, Versamark, Summer Sun
  • Acc:  Black EP, SS marker, Corner Rounder Punch, Twill from Taylored Expressions, Bling, Cuttlebug & D'Vine Folder, Blender Pen

We were out last night and my DD called me asking if she could use my stampin' stuff to make something for a new coworker.  I said sure, and this is what she made:

Dana' s creation

It is a pencil holder for her desk; she likes pink & blaDana's tattoock, so Dana used a couple different DPs, the star from All Through the Year and sentiments from Papertrey.  And lots of bling!  She said she got her inspiration from her tattoo:

We all get inspired by different things, right?!

Enjoy your day!  I will be SHOPPING tomorrow with three blog friends----cannot wait!!!  I am sure we will have lots to show you after our outing!

I'm saving that card to my DOCUMENTS and I am going to try and make one using that design.

I don't have the stamps, but I can get creative if I put my mind to it.

Now, where was I...........
