Really Inspired

Sometimes it is the little things that inspire us. Sometimes it is a fire under our but that inspire us! This time it was a fire under my butt! I belong to a great group on Facebook. It is all about stamping. Hello how can I not be inspired?!?!?! So we had a swap and I signed up for 2 sets of cards. One was "Autumn" and the other was "Thank You". You have to make six of each. You do not get one back. The 6th one goes to charity! I need to remember this so I can make more on the next swap. LOL
First one I did was one when I pulled out my pigment powders. I have not used them in scrapbooking in YEARS. Part of the reason is that they are messier than glitter! It gets everywhere and on everything. I think I have shimmer on me somewhere...even after 2 showers!
I used CTMH stamps, Anna Griffin Embossing Folder, Walmart Cardstock with pigment powders for the leaves and over the embossed image.
Next I did a card for the "Thank You". This one I loved. I first used random cardstock I bought at Walmart and embossed it with a folder from Anna Griffin.
As you can tell I then inked it with CTMH Barn Red. Loved it! Looks a bit like leather. Don't you think?
Used my CTMH ink pads, pen from heaven LOL and my A Creative Journey with Melissa stamp set!

I then colored in the stamp set. This stamp set is available at


 Thanks for looking!
