Melissa’s U Inspire Me
Print Friendly

Happy Thursday to you, CardMaker friends! Melissa here with you today. It seems like no matter where I look I’m always seeing something that sparks an idea for a card. Whether I’m walking through the aisles of Target or browsing through a magazine, I’m always taking notes or pictures for future use. And let’s not forget about the one website that is overflowing with inspiration—PINTEREST! It’s become my “go-to stop” when I need a little kick-start to my mojo. Today’s card was inspired by a print that I have had saved on my Pinterest board for quite some time.

I love everything about it—the layout, the flowers and the bright, cheery colors. I couldn’t wait to recreate something similar, yet my own.

I started with a piece of aqua cardstock and die-cut my sentiment. Next, I began stamping my images. I chose bright, cheery colors, just like the print above.

After all of my images were stamped, I attached the panel to the front of my white card front. I wanted to add a little something extra and chose hot pink twine and sequins to finish it off. You can find all of the supplies I used listed below.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit. I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you find a bit of inspiration around you today!

Melissa
