Inspired By | A Cookie Made Me Do It | Video

I've had a few things said to me over the years - all in the same genre - about where I find inspiration.  Some were comments about how people didn't think they could be creative enough to come up with their own designs like I do; some were comments about not being able to blog their own creations, because they weren't inspired enough to create frequently; and some were from people who just wanted to crawl inside my head for an hour to figure out how my creativity "works".  Well, I'm going to show you!  I'm going to start sharing some occasional cards that are "Inspired by...", AND I will show you my inspiration.  

Inspired by a cookie

Today's card was inspired by a cookie posted by SweetSugarBelle on Instagram.  This cookie was so cute, and I loved the colors used.  I went a little more pink, rather than the coral tones that Callye used, but I think it works just as well.  

This lovely, just because, card was inspired by a COOKIE!   Hand stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Everyday Script Stamps, and the handmade flowers were created with the Love Is Punch Cartridge.

I used an embossing folder that you can get for FREE with an order of $100 or more.  However, if you don't have this folder, any pretty embossing folder would work to add texture to the card front.

This lovely, just because, card was inspired by a COOKIE!   Hand stamped with Fun Stampers Journey Everyday Script Stamps, and the handmade flowers were created with the Love Is Punch Cartridge.

I do have a video, walking you through the process of creating this card.  All of the dimensions and steps are given in the video.



Thanks for stopping by!
