Helping Me Get Inspired!

Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday! I wanted to stamp today. I sat at my table starring blankly at it. My creative mojo was not flowing. When that happens, I like to blog hop. I get some awesome inspiration when I do this. Today's card is fairly simple yet it looks sophisticated and fun! I got this idea from Ilinia Crouse. I loved this card. I tweeked it just slightly and went to town. I love to CASE. I know.. CASEing.. is not always a good thing to do but honestly, if I love a card I see and I want to make it.. I do just that! I hope maybe this card sparks some inspiration for you, as well! Stampin and crafting is all about sharing! So, lets share this card with YOU!

Isn't it cute? Here is what I used:

Soft Suede Card Stock
Whisper White Card Stock
Poppy Parade Card Stock
Attic Boutique Side Notes
Just My Type Clear Mount Stamp Set
Soft Suede Classic Ink

So Saffron 3/8 inch Taffeta Ribbon

The Cutest Box on the Block!

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a fantabulous weekend so far! Have you enjoyed the Stampin` Squad's blog hop? So many great blogs with a lot of creative inspiration. I am honored to be a part of the hoppin group.

I thought I'd share this quick little project I made. When I say "little", I mean just that. Isn't this adorable?

I used the Bigz Clear Die, Scallop Square (Item # 115950). Inside are small note cards, just perfect to use inside a lunch bag, or other little areas to surprise your Valentine! I used the PS I Love You Clear Stamp Set - I love this set!! It is so darn cute! I seen this idea thru some photos from Stampin` Up! Leadership Conference. Just so adorable.. and I CASE'd part of this from Angie Juda at Chick N Scratch. I loved her little tutorial.

Here are the cards I made for the inside:

Have a great weekend.. Happy Super Bowling (Go Patriots!).. take a little time to get inky!
