STAMPlorations Inspiration Post #37

Hi 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 you could CASE my card or any of the DT's cards or Gail's card from the CASEplorations Post.  Or if you'd like you can CASE one of our cards from the Inspiration posts #36.  Whichever way you'd like to play you can link up your cards and have a chance to win some prizes!  Today I have two cards to share with you.  Take a look...

(this detail gives you a closer look at the lovely gold ink by Delicata)

(All stamps are by STAMPlorations)

Does this design look familiar?  That's because it is!  I took the design from the card I created HERE and made an Autumn and Christmas card.  This design lends itself to all kinds of occasions.  So, the Autumn card was made with the leaves from the Dee's Arsty Impressions set, Frames and Flowers.  I stamped the sentiment first (Fond Expressions 2 set) in black then the leaves scattered around.  I used the following ink colours: Ruby Red, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede (all by SU!), Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe (both by Memento) and Golden Glitz (Delicata).

The Christmas card was made with the sentiment (Holiday Sketches: Christmas Candles) stamped in Nautical Navy (Memento).  Then I took the snowflakes from the set: Vignette: Christmas Block, and performed a little surgery by cutting out the individual snowflakes.  I stamped them in the following ink colours: Dove Gray (StazOn), Nautical Navy, Teal Zeal (both by Memento), Sea Glass (Simon Says Stamp), Pool to Navy Ombre ink (Hero Arts), and Perfect Plum (SU!).  I added a bit of bling with some tiny white pearls and clear rhinestones.

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

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