Today is my day to share a Project of the Week over on the House That Stamps Built blog. I am starting what I call my "Pinterest Inspired" series. I pin lots of card making ideas while I'm trolling on Pinterest (as I'm sure we all do) and even have a board designated for ideas for using Repeat Impressions stamps. My card today was inspired by this card:
(Unfortunately, the link would not open the website, so I can't give credit where it is due.)
And here is my card:Butterfly (lg)" image using white embossing powder. I used my new blender brushes (just got them for my birthday!) to blend on some Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. I spritzed a little water to add texture to the sponging, stamped my sentiment, "Count Your Blessings", with Black Soot Distress Oxide and added some clear sequins for a bit of sparkle! Then adhered everything to a white card base.
I hope this inspires you to create something based on a project you have pinned--it's too easy to save those ideas and then never do anything with them.
Stamp: Repeat Impressions "Butterfly (lg)" and "Count Your Blessings"
Dies: MFT "Blueprints 13" stitched rectangle

As You Like It--favorite: CAS or Fussy and Fancy? ( I don't have a specific style really. I love a well-done CAS card and I love a fully loaded fancy card. I usually fall somewhere in between with my own creations. Lately, though, I've been working more towards the CAS style as they are usually faster to create and I always seem to be behind the clock!)
Dare 2 B Artzy--your favorite color (I've always loved blues and greens and this type of turquoise-y blue is my current favorite)
