Be Inspired #30


What a fun inspiration piece from Beate this week! (the bag is from Belle Bags as shown on http://www.shysiren.com/) I thought I had patterned paper that would work, but I couldn't find it, so I had to punch circles of different sizes out of different colored cardstocks. I used the Margaritas clear stamp set from Impression Obsession. You can find this set at Stamper's Dream. After I placed all of the punched circles, I stamped the sentiment on the Pacific Point cardstock. Kind of wild and funky, huh? :)



Make sure you visit Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts to see what fabulous things they've created! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Margaritas (Impression Obsession); Paper- Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, So Saffron, Basic Black (SU); Ink- Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko); Accessories- Copic markers, Celery wide grosgrain (SU), Stardust Stickles, Mega Circle punch (Marvy Uchida), 1 3/8" and 1 1/4" circle punches (SU); Finished card measures 5.5"x4.25"
