~ What's Inspiring ~ translating embellishments into cards
Ah ... is this not a pile of loveliness? On my thrift-hunting run yesterday, I scored these beauties. Each roll of ribbon holds 20 meters! And isn't that lace lovely? Totally!
Here's how I used the lace ...
For a simple card. I felt wasteful after buying a whole pile of Webster's Pages, but after making this card, I think I didn't do such a silly thing after all - who doesn't love their beautiful papers?!
I cut out a little heart from my favorite kraft cardstock and (as usual) did something to it using VersaMagic white ink. And added those cute little buttons. I cannot resist pink!
I love my PaperTrey Ink stamps.
doily, ribbons, and the trinket pin came from my thrift-stash.
... speaking of the trinket pin, I made these littles for you.
so you can share my love for them.
They are listed in my etsy store, five for a dollar.
On to the next card!
Sorry, but I love my PaperTrey Ink stamps too much. and that lace too! and more stitching.
glittery buttons again ... and fussy-cutting
Well, gotta go. I truly thank you for visiting!
O, before I forget, I'm celebrating! All three of my submissions to PaperCrafts' upcoming edition of 225 Cards and Gifts were accepted (on my first try hurray!). To any others who hope to be published some day, don't give up. And most of all, have fun creating.
