Day 4: Inspired by Card Set


Before I start, Karen asked yesterday where the sentiments were from on my earlier card sets this week.  They were the Paper Smoochest Chit Chat set and Sentiment Sampler...super versatile.  Love them.

Now last, but certainly not least is my final card set for this week.  I hope you've liked them and that you've gotten some ideas on how to use up some of your patterned paper!  I'm thinking these card sets will be set aside for Christmas gifts for the the boys' teachers!  Today's card is inspired by not one but two designers:  Debby and Maureen. My card is closer to Maureen's, but Maureen was inspired by Debby's gorgeous card here!  So.....off I went...keeping it ultra simple with patterned paper, die cut flowers from the paper and Verve sentiments.  One more set complete!

Here's Maureen's beautiful inspiration card below.  I love how she placed the gems.  I started to do the same, but couldn't quite get them placed correctly!  Hope you've liked the three days of card sets...do you have a favorite?  I'd love to hear your thoughts....and if you make card sets...let me know!  I'm always looking for more ideas! :)

  2. Oh I've taken notes from all of these cards, Lynn! I've really enjoyed seeing the CAS take on DP - hopefully that means my own stash will be decreasing in size rather than increasing! LOL!
    Hugs!
