Where's the Inspiration?

What is the starting point for making a card? For me, often times it is a challenge theme. Other times it is a particular stamp that I'm wanting to use. Then, on days like this, it's the designer paper that catches my eye and screams USE ME! 

What's a girl to do? Search her Evernote inventory and find a stamp that works with the paper, of course.

I thought the Deep Red Wild Sunflowers were a nice combination with the beautiful floral paper.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Stamp: Deep Red Wild Sunflowers stamped with Gina K Amalgam Ink and colored with Copic Markers

Papers: Cougar 110# White and SU Cherry Cobbler CS and DP from my scrap file

Dies: Jaded Blossom Scallop Rectangle, MFT Stitched Rectangle, MFT Starburst Sentiment Strips, and SU Stitched Shapes (Squares)

Embellishments: Eyelet Outlet Enamel Dots


  1. OH I can't tell you how many times I've done that - picked the paper and then had to find a stamp! (Usually it's the other way around!) This is GORGEOUS, Jeanette! Very home and hearth feel!

  2. What a sweet card. Love the image and cute background paper!

  3. Ohh, what beauty Jeanette - the paper and the flowers are gorgeous together
    Stay safe

  4. I love this card a lot!! The business of your background stamp really highlights the blue, and your image coloured blue is just perfect.

  5. WOW WOW WOW love this card. I love the way you colored your flowers great layout. Wonderful job.

  6. Gorgeous papers on this beautiful card, Jeanette!! Love the pop of color with the yellow enamel dots!
