Taking Inspiration

myversionlydiascardOften during my classes, people will ask me where I get the ideas for the cards we make. Usually, I enjoy coming up with card ideas on my own, but they can also be copies or versions of cards I’ve received or seen! In this case, we did this fun card at club earlier in the month. It uses the Stampin’ Up! sets¬† Work of Art for the sentiment, and Gorgeous Grunge for the splatter. I love how the bright colours in the splatter make it less grungy and more artistic…

and the original is this card that I received from my friend, Lydia Fiedler. She is such a fantastic, creative person and really has the whole white space thing down.lydias-card In all honesty, I would have done the card even more like hers….but I felt that I stamped the splatter too low on the Whisper White cardstock for the layout I had planned (with the extra layer of Tempting Turquoise behind the main image portion).¬† OK there you go, you thought there was some science to it, but no. This is me, remember?!!

If you’d like to pick up some card inspiration that you can use as a jumping off point for your own cards, please consider classes with me! You can attend my monthly classes (first Wednesday of each month) (register via email), host one of your own with friends, or take an online class!
