Hero Inspired

Once again I am playing in the Be Inspired over at A Blog Named Hero.  I am seriously inspired by both Shari Carroll and Jennifer McGuire.  Today, my card was inspired by a card Jen did the other day; white stamping on kraft.  This also is done for my Summer II class.  I loosely used Sketch 3, and I am loving the plaid stamping.  I am not really sure if we are suppose to always use the colors - I didn't today.

Totally love white on kraft.  I don't do it often, [I forget so many of the different methods I love - sheesh] However, I really love it even more with the added colors.  My circles are made with a lid -- fun way for perfect [distressed] circles, and I used the Spellbinders Dress Form dies.  So fun, I love this card!

(If you happened to have seen this post, I am adding to it. Can you just say addicted to stamping? I absolutely can.not.stop -- so fun.)

As I was cleaning my desk area, I came across this glossy accented butterfly. I had put it aside to dry and forgot about it! Well, luckily the challenge over at Besotted Stamps #2 - seeing spots, is still going on! Yay - I quickly finished my card and entered it into the challenge.

 Once again, for this challenge I used one of the free digis Stephanie offers. My swirl is PTI Fancy Flourishes.

And last for today [really, I promise] - I worked on a project I pinned on Pinterest.  I am not that thrilled with the outcome [kind of bowed] but overall I LOVE THIS.  No longer do I have to take the entire stack of ink to get the one color I want!  Perfect~

Thanks for stopping by~

So happy to see you joining in with the challenge again Vicki, your card is amazing, as always! Love your ink pad storage solution - great idea! x

Wonderful cards! Take at look at for cassette holders. They hold the ink pads and are made of wood, so they hold up well. Love it! Can hold 100 pads! and it only costs about 20.00.

Love, love, love your cards!!! Karen's right about the ink pad storage solution with the cassette tape holders....I bought two of them. ;-)
