This Week’s Inspiration
Cyndi is back this week with a beautiful card using one of CTMH’s Workshop Your Way (WYW) kits. This one was called WYW Sending Hugs and I love the these kits include a few sheets of paper, a stamp set and normally some sort of design element. They also include a printed of instruction sheet for two card designs…or scrapbook layout – depending on the kit you get. Cyndi did a great job designing her own card using the Chelsea Gardens paper and stamp set from the kit. That’s the fun part!

Last week I was shared a card using some Beautiful Friendship flowers I had stamped using a “second generation” technique. But because I can be so frugal, I also kept the first generation prints as well and here is the card I promised using them. The layout is similar – I am using up some of CTMH’s Fundamental paper pack that is retiring in July in this card as well. The two bold flowers are first generation Pacifica and Sorbet. The third flower though is a second generation using Tangerine (it matches the cardstock perfectly) and the leaves are second/first generation Pewter. I did use the same Documented stamp set from CTMH as before. I love the dot spatterings because they are perfect if you need a little filler! In addition to the extra flower, a change in this card layout is that I grabbed some washi tape instead of more paper scraps. As you can see from the bucket in my photo, I have a LOT of washi tape and need to start using it again.
