I have to say, can someone check my head? Do I have a fever? How's my complexion--- do you think I am pale? Seriously, I have gotten more stamping done in the last week than I think should be possible! I must not be feeling well!! LOL!
Actually, I have just finished up some severe work deadlines and I have just rewarded myself with some time in my stamp room! Yesterday morning I grabbed a cup of coffee and my laptop and logged on to SCS to see what kind of challenges they had out there! While I've only played a few times, I really love the Featured Stamper challenge. I love looking and being inspired by other people's work. It is just so refreshing! So, I got Ink-e! That is Emily's screen name for SCS and she was this week's Featured Stamper! (FS89)
THIS is the card that inspired me. I loved the monochromatic look, the layout, well, pretty much everything! To change this up, instead of blue, I chose a black and white combo!
I used different stamps too and then, I added some bling! The Stamps were Spring Ephemerals (Flourishes), Rummage Bin (Cornish Heritage Farms) for the background flourish image and the saying, "Friend," was from the Flourished Words set from Flourishes! Add some sheer ribbon, some Hodge Podge Hardware and some pewter self stick pearls and you're done!
If you need some inspiration, you should really take a trip to Emily's gallery. She has some great cards and some fun layouts too! I had fun just taking a peek at all her recent creations!
I'm am off to go on a cleaning binge! My mom is coming tomorrow and I have to ready the place for the "Queen!" LOL! Just kiddin' ma! Actually, who doesn't want to roll out the red carpet for their mom! ;-)
