A couple of cards - Inspired by...

Not a very original title but today I don't feel to original so it will have to do. Besides neither of the 2 cards are original ideas either so I think the title fits.

These were the cards I managed to come up with for last nights Stamp Club meeting. I have had such a hard time this year coming up with card ideas because I was basically not real thrilled with a lot of the stamp sets available in the current SU catalog. - No "Flames" please but that is just how I feel about this particular catty.

I found the idea for the bright Orange and Green card here: and was inspired by the ideas of bright tropical colors. I altered the color scheme as I didn't have enough of the Teal to use for my club meeting. Plus I just like the combo of the Only Orange and Green Galore together with the Gable Green. I altered the design a little as well. I liked the flower with the brad but wanted mine to be off set so I used my circle punches to create my flower accent. I also accented the flower centers with Orange Peel Stickles. and stamped my sentiment at the bottom instead of using the tab on the side. Thanks, Kris for the inspiration.

Card #2 was inspired I believe by a card I saw on some one's blog. They did not include a watermark with their name so I can't give credit since I can't recall offhand which blog I saw it on. If this looks vaguely familiar to anyone let me know so I can credit my inspiration.

This card used the set, Priceless. I loved the original color scheme so I kept that but added some brads to the bottom of my card and altered the placement of the sentiment and also popped my butterfly up on dimensionals.

Both of your cards turned out wonderful! I think the Priceless one is close to the one I did for last week's Blogger's Challenge, so I may have been your inspiration. And yes...I don't have a watermark (hanging my head in shame)! I'm still trying to work on it though...(one more computer thing for me to!) :D

Both cards are cute, I think I need to start casing some cards and hopefully get my mojo back! Love the brads on the blue card!
