Be Inspired #26

I just LOVE Beate's Inspiration picture for today. I love how the room has lots of white space with a splash of polka dots and stripes. How fun! I decided to use the polka dots. I used the Polka Dot Basics set from Papertrey Ink and stamped the polka dots in Whisper White Craft ink on Basic Black cardstock, and then embossed them with white embossing powder. The Cuddle In Snow image and the sentiment from the Crystalline set are both from Penny Black and you can find them at Stamper's Dream. Isn't that snow couple adorable? I just LOVE them! The image was colored using Copic markers. For more inspiration, check out what fabulous creations Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have come up with for this challenge! Thanks for stopping by today and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Cuddle in Snow, Crystalline clear set (Penny Black), Polka Dot Basics (PTI); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Paper- Basic Black, Red Riding Hood, Pacific Point (SU); Accessories- Copic markers, paper piercer, white embossing powder, red grosgrain, Stardust Stickles, white gel pen; Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"
