Gosh I was so stressing myself out today trying to figure out what I could use as an "inspiration" for this weeks challenge. With the Thanksgiving holiday this past week I just didn't find time to be inspired by a single thing. I was just sitting here when I suddenly remembered that last week I created this card for my Stamper's 10 Club to make and it was indeed "inspired" by a card that I had seen in the November issue of Paper Crafts magazine.
The card I was inspired by was done by the fabulously talented Nichole Heady. I'm hoping it's okay to post a picture of it.
For my card I chose the color scheme of Chocolate Chip & River Rock. I stamped the Print Pattern Background stamp with River Rock ink on River Rock card stock. I then traced a line on the backside of the card stock using a bowl as my guide then cut off the portion I didn't need and distressed the edges with the Cutter Kit. I Stamped the Fine Lace Background with Chocolate Chip ink on River Rock card stock & glued a strip to some Chocolate Chip card stock also distressed with the cutter kit. I layered these pieces onto a card base of Chocolate Chip & stamped the sentiment (Star Studded Season) with Chocolate Chip ink.
I stamped the star (also from Star Studded Season) with River Rock ink on River Rock CS and then cut in out and pressed it into a VersaMark pad and covered it with Iridescent Ice EP and embossed it. Then I stamped the small star from (Star Struck) with Chocolate Chip ink and cute it out. I used a brad from the Pretties Kit for the center of the star and mounted this with foam mounting tape onto my card.
It's a very different color combo for Christmas but I really like it & hope you do as well.
