STAMPlorations Inspiration #23

Hey everyone!  It's time again to try and inspire you!  Over at STAMPlorations the Inspiration Design Team has come up with some more fabulous cards to try and entice you to create!  If you want join in on the CASEplorations you could CASE our GD, Virginia Lu's card.  Or if you'd like you can CASE one of our cards from today's post or from the Inspiration posts #21 or #22.  Whichever way you'd like to play you can link up your cards and have a chance to win some prizes!  Here's my card...

So, I took a strip of beige cardstock and stamped my sunflower (Bloom Sketches Set) using my Hero Arts orange ombré ink pad.  The ombré effect is harder to see on the beige paper.  Then I stamped some smaller flowers (Eclectic Florals Set) in Sea Glass (SSS) and white (Color Box) ink.  Then I attached my panel to my white card base.  I stamped the sentiment (Bloom Sketches Set) in the blue Hero Arts ombré ink.

So, if you want to play along and do some CASEing come on over and visit us HERE.

Here some guidelines to keep in mind:

  • Pick any card (or two, or however many) from the Inspiration Project posts that we'll be publishing throughout the month of June (June 8, 12, 22, 26, and 30) that you want to CASE. You can create any type of project -- card, ATC, altered project, mixed media, art journal page, scrapbook page, etc.
  • You can use any supplies you have. You don't have to use STAMPlorations products; products by other companies are welcome -- but please play for fun, not for promotion!
  • In your blog post, include the card you're CASEing as well as describe how you were inspired by it. Link back to the Inspiration Project post too.
  • Don't forget to link up your CASE project(s) to the Inspiration CASE Playground!
  • CASE as many cards as you want, so long as you have them in separate posts on your blog.
  • You have until July 5th to link up your creations.
And don't forget, you could win a prize too!  One winner will be randomly drawn from all entries to win a $15 gift certificate or their choice of any 2 ARTplorations stencils.  I do hope you'll join in on the fun!

 Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More - clean and simple
TIME OUT Challenge - Inspired by words: 'Happy is the Bride the Sun Shines on'.  I was inspired by the words "sun" and "shines".  Made me think of sunflowers and then I thought the sentiment was appropriate.  :-)
