Inspired By Challenge


I managed to squeeze in a bit of time in the Craft Cave today to play along with Laurel Seabrook's Inspired By challenge.  I love the bold colours in the inspiration picture and was especially drawn to the trees.  It was just the push I needed to finally break out my Spring Groves stamps from Paper Smooches' Kismet Collection.  How cute are those lollipop trees?  I paper pieced them and popped them up on Pop Dots at a few different heights.  Couldn't live without my Pop Dots...


Supplies Used:
Cardstock: (White) Bazzill, (Kraft) Gina K,  (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Trees from Spring Groves, Sentiment from Chit Chat) Paper Smooches
Ink:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Punch:  (Corner rounder) Marvy Uchida
Eyelets:  Making Memories
Embroidery Floss:  DMC

*love*!What a fabulous way to attach the sentiment (and don't we all have buckets of eyelets? I do.) Must try that! And as for those trees...I kind of want some like that in my yard :)

This would have been stunning just stamped flat, but the dimension really makes you see the forest in the trees, so to speak! Great card (love those fall colours - can't wait!)
