Today’s card is one that I designed for my Team Retreat Shoe Box Swap and it was inspired by the card in the Holiday Catalog. Just goes to show, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you can just change it up a bit. This is what we call a CASE, or copy and share everything! lol
Inspiration can come from all places it doesn’t have to be just another card – color and patterns are all around us in our everyday lives. My daughter is always rolling her eyes at me when we are out shopping and I say “look there are flowers done in Terracotta Tile or like her dress years ago Calypso Coral! I love the fact that Stampin’ Up! keeps up with our color trends.
Here is the card – I just love cardinals so this was a set I just HAD to have!
I wanted a bold cardinal so for this project I used our Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blends after paying around with the Watercolor Pencils and the Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink. The Disinktive stamp make this so easy to color since the shading is already there for you. You can see just how fast this card was to color with the Blends in my video.
