If you are looking for some inspiration to get your creative projects started, this inspiration image will definitely have something for you. Annette used different colors and handwriting, along with hearts to make a really fun card! By using simple handwriting enlarged over the entire layout, Anat made her layouts title stand out. Just like in the inspiration image, she selected and painted only a few of the words, which was such a pretty touch to add. Last but not the least, Wendy’s card uses the hearts and the word ”sweet” so effectively. The embossing adding such drama, and she used the colors from the inspiration on a few of them to make them pop!
I love how the same image sparked different creative results in these beautiful cards and layouts. I hope you find some inspiration here and get crafty to make something of your own!
Lucky to Have You by Annette Witherspoon
Supplies: Cardstock: Office Max, Stampin’ Up!, Ink: Memento, Stampin’ Up!, Pen: Viva Décor. Tools: Stamps: Lawn Fawn, Punch: Stampin’ Up!, Other: stamp positioner.
Design Note: To get the various ink colors on the sentiment, I masked off the stamp and only revealed the word I wanted to use before applying the ink. I then removed the mask and stamped the image. Using a stamp positioner will help ensure your image is perfectly aligned every time you stamp.
You Made Me by Anat Shchori-falah (tshupile)
Supplies: Papers, Stickers: BasicGrey , Pen: Sakura, Ink: Versa Color (Tsukineko), Other: string, color pencils, adhesive, stencil.
Design Note: I was inspired mostly from the handwriting that seems to be painted with watercolors. In my layout I painted the most meaningful words for me with color pencils, and I then made some shadows with a brush and some water.
Journaling: You made me mum, You make me happy, You'll make me proud, I'm sure!
Hey Sweetie! by Wendy Frederick
Supplies: Paper: Papertrey Ink, Stampin’ Up,The Paper Company, Ink: Tsukineko. Tools: Stamp: Wplus9.
Design Note: Whenever I challenge myself to create something from an inspiration piece I try to not go for the obvious. It can be hard but is also really gratifying in the end. In this case I just loved the sweet message of the inspirations piece and the hearts completed my project.
