Everyday inspiration!

You know, it's amazing, i have had this ad for Bed, Bath & Beyond sitting here in my craft room for about 3 weeks now, because i liked some of the bedroom stuff in it - for Cait's room. Well, turns out, i got inspired from the ad to make a card using the design and color scheme. Goes to show you - you can find simple color or design inspiration where ever you look!! The top pillow is what i actually based the card design on. Recipe for the card is below: click on the pic to open it larger.

Cardstock - base is Whisper White, tempting Turquoise, Gable Green cardstock. Stamp set is "Circle Circus" & Simple Sentiments (an old hostess set from last year). I also added some "bling" by using Stampin' Up's Rhinestone brads (in "Ice Circles").
I stamped the circles on the TT cardstock in Versa Mark ink, and then used white embossing powder to heat emboss. I also ran the narrow strips of Gable Green thru my Fiskars Crimper tool for added demension.
Enjoy searching around your home for "everyday inspiration"!


  1. wow, what a great inspiration for the card! Lovely!

  2. Very pretty Stacy -- I really like these colors together. Wish I would have seen this a couple hours earlier when I was trying to get some swap cards done.

  3. Great colour combo and wonderful way to use the inspiration.
