Jacqueline's Inspiration

Am I alone in thinking the time is just flying by, the First and 15th of the months come so quickly and I need to find a card for my inspiration post.

If you love stamping and want to get some wonderful inspiration for trying new things and getting a wonderful look, you will have to check out Jacqueline's Blog .  There are so many more things I want to try but I was in a bit of a hurry and was hoping this wouldn't take to much time.

On her card she used Alcohol Inks for her background and I just love that look, will have to try it soon, but instead I used Designer paper to emboss my stamping.  I used Gold and white embossing powders.  I only had one big stamp that I thought would work well enough for this technique.  Stamped once with all gold, stamped again in all white and chose parts that I cut with my die.

You can find the card I used for my inspiration HERE .

After I finished it I was thinking maybe silver embossing powder would have been better than the gold on this blue but my hubby thought the silver wouldn't have been enough contrast from the white.

PSX -- Stamp
Graphic 45 -- LeCirque Collection paper
Spellbinders -- Classic Square Lg dies  (1" size) Back to basics tags die
Stamps of Life -- minis 4 circles
Cafaroo -- Rhinestone, colored w/marker
DCWV -- Card base

 Mounted all the squares onto cream cardstock, then onto grey then onto the card base.

I hope you get a chance to stop by her blog and see her gorgeous creations, I was lucky enough to have won one of the cards off her blog awhile back.

Hope your week is going well,
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and leaving your comments,

Connie, this is beautiful! There is so much inspiration to be found out there in Blogland. I love your idea for doing the embossing on designer paper. Quicker for when there's not much time available. Great choice of DP for this tiled design!
