For Your Inspiration and Stamp School

Ya know, at times I wish I had a different blog company -- one that lets you send out 2 separate posts so my Teams get their full recognition.  On the other hand, I am not willing to pay for that option. [in other words,  I would rather spend that money on my supplies :)]  So, today [once again] I am showcasing 2 Teams.

It's that time again for For Your Inspiration.  Wow does Steph know how to pick these beautiful photographs or what!

Looking at this I instantly thought of white on white.  I almost accomplished it.

I just need another color - I just can't do white on white.  I picked up on the bridge color, and added the gray,  I used  GKD Stately Flowers 2 on both the flower and sentiment.  Stamping my vellum flower with white embossing powder [I do love this effect] and using pop up dots in between the cut layers for dimension.  My chevron stamp is from SP & Company Chevron Chase.

Do you like the inspiration photo?  See the card [in your mind] you want to make?  Well pop on over to FYI and play along! Be sure and check out the DT member's samples -- can you say gorgeous? :)

My next card today is using Stamp School's newest release, Wedded Bliss and Down the Aisle.  These 2 sets really are perfect for a wedding, shower or anniversary!  It's so nice they are compatible.

I actually used gold embossing powder on this card.  I honestly can't tell you the last time I used ep.  [With a ceiling fan it goes everywhere~ :)]  This wedding card just called for the added elegance embossing powder gives to a card.

I would say pop on over to Stamp School blog, but really, there is no reason to.  You see my card here, and there isn't anything else I did over on the SS Blog.  See how easy I am? :)

Thanks for stopping by~

Love both of these cards Vicki. I love the look of the embossing on vellum. I haven't done that in ages.

Oh, yes, that white EP on vellum is gorgeous! Beautiful take on the inspiration pic at FYI.
