Inspiration Wednesday!

Welcome to my blog.  If you are from The Paper Cabana you are in the right spot.  If you haven't been to the challenge blog I design for you should check out this weeks challenge... and there are always cool gifts for each weeks winner!

Today we were asked to get inspiration from a website.  Mine looked like this...
and from this came a very inspired card using my new medium flourish die and my Gypsy, Cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge!

These two cards went together fairly easy and turned out fantabulous I think.

One thing I learned doing these cards and a new mat that is super sticky is that you can IRON your paper flat again using the same iron you iron your clothes with... just cover your paper with a scratch sheet of paper and whahlah!  flat paper again :D

I used Sweet Threads paper by Basic Grey and the jewel brads are CTMH.  The stamp is by Verve and it made me smile to see these cards as I hope the recipients will smile when they see them! The flourish is from MFT and is the medium flourish die.





Don't you love getting "unstuck"???  I know I do!  Show us some love and post your work... you might win something fun and you will have fun too!  Check out The Paper Cabana this week and try something new if you are stuck!

Have a blessed day!  Kathi
