Be Inspired #22

I went a little wild with this week's Inspiration Challenge! LOL When I looked at the picture, I was inspired to punch different sizes and colors of circles and then stamp over them. This first card uses the SU Happiness Always set. I wasn't sure I was crazy about how this first one came out, so I tried a second card with a different stamp set. For the second card I used the Crystalline stamp set from Penny Black. You can find that stamp set at Stamper's Dream. I added some bling to the snowflakes, but other than that, the card is pretty simple. I'm eager to see what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for this inspiration challenge. Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Happiness Always (SU), Crystalline (Penny Black); Paper- white (Georgia-Pacific), Pacific Point, Baja Breeze (SU), Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink); Ink- Whisper White Craft , Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze, Pacific Point (SU), Burnt Umber (Palette); Accessories- Key tag punch (SU), Jumbo Circle punch (Marvy Uchida), 1 3/8", 1 1/4" and 3/4" circle punches (SU), paper piercer, Stardust Stickles, bling, white organdy ribbon (Darice); Finished cards measure 5.5"x4.25"
