I saw a card at Stampin' Connection last week that looked a lot like this:
stamp sets - Papillon Potpourri, Loving Thoughts; ink - Lucky Limeade; card stock - Basic Black, Lucky Limeade, Naturals White; punch - Elegant Butterfly; Big Shot with Top Note die and Designer Frames folder, Basic Rhinestones
The Stampin' Connection Showcase is exclusive for Stampin' Up!® demonstrators, so I can't link you there. Hers was done in soft neutrals, used a different sentiment, and had a pearl embellishment where I have three rhinestones. I was going to copy hers more closely; I was thinking of Brushed Gold or Brushed Silver for the butterfly and staying with her softer color palette. Then I remembered the Black & White with a splash of Lime challenge at The Play Date Cafe and I had a "eureka" moment. I like it!
On the next card, I reversed the original card colors. Not because of any flash of inspiration, only because when I embossed the poinsettias on the white card stock, I had the unfortunate idea that the centers could be done with Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details. I didn't like it, so I tried it the other way, and added a layer of silver:
stamp sets - Petite Pairs, Scentsational Season, Platinum Shimmer Paint, card stock - Brushed Silver, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White; Big Shot with Petals-A-Plenty embossing folder; Whisper White 5/8" organza ribbon
Of course, I saw Ange's card on Pinterest, where I also saw a tip to use the stylus for dotting the paint onto the flower centers. I stamped the star and greeting (by using a sponge dauber to get the paint neatly on my stamps) so that I could make "Bingo" (vertical center row) at Jingle Belles. Then I realized that I have "double Bingo" using the bottom horizontal row! I'm sort of tempted to see if it's possible to get a "full card Bingo"...
Another Pinterest CASE adventure I tried this week resulted in this:
stamp sets - Autumn Days (retired), More Merry Messages; ink - Early Espresso; Stampin' Write markers - Early Espresso, Garden Green; - card stock - Early Espresso Core'dinations, Garden Green, Very Vanilla; Big Shot with Woodgrain textured impressions folder, Stampin' Sanding System, Stampin' DimensionalsI made some minor selective edits, since Rhonda used the new Watercolor Winter stamp set, which I (foolishly?) haven't purchased, and I replaced her birthday sentiment with a Christmas sentiment. I didn't make this card for any challenges (other than my own personal challenge to make as many Christmas cards as I can before December); I just made it because I loved it. And there are so many other ideas that I love on Pinterest. It can be hard to find the balance between finding the inspiration and putting it into action.
