Hi everyone! Happy Thursday! Time for another warm, cozy Inspired By challenge! I usually love making Christmas cards at any time of the year, but for some reason, I have not been very inspired since 2019 rolled around! I had to give myself a kickstart to get in the spirit with this card!!:
And here is Laurel's prompt; warm and cozy for sure:
My DSPs are all retired from SU; the darker blue one actually had white flowers, but I brayered them with some Soft Suede ink to give them a more distressed apperance! The sentiment was heat embossed in white ink and embossing powder, and the little coffee cup was stamped in Memento Black, Night of Navy and Soft Suede, then I added some coloring with a Bronze Blend:
I stamped the horizontal panel with the Buffalo Check stamp in Night of Navy, and I embossed the background with the Cable Knit embossing folder.And here's the inside:
All other sentiments and images are from Close to My Heart, and I used the Tuesday Morning Sketches sketch for this week:
If you've not ever played along with the Inspired By challenge, I encourage you to give it a try! Can't wait to see your creation!
I recently joined the Spellbinder Die of the Month club, and got a cute little paper doll-style die that I thought Cassidy would like:
Most of the pieces are small and fiddly, but she did a great job; true to her tomboy-style (regardless of the Mardi Gras beads she is wearing!!!), she chose to create a boy with neutral clothes....although I am not too sure about those shoes, LOL! To each her own, right?! She added the buttons, pocket and fingers herself!!!
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
