Just Add Ink #410 | Just Add Inspiration

Hello there stamping friends!! Another week has come and gone and it's Friday again! New challenge time over at Just Add Ink. A fun and bright inspiration picture for you all with lots going on and lots to inspire you! I love inspiration challenges. We all have the same picture yet and everyone is inspired by something different in it and we all have different creations!

Inspiration for my card came from the pillows on the bed, the spots and dots throughout the picture and all the little touches of gold. I loved the layers of the white, pink and aqua of the pillows and that's where I started with my card using layers of Whisper White, Flirty Flamingo and Coastal Cabana. I for one am super excited that Coastal Cabana is returning to the Stampin' Up! colour range and it goes perfectly with today's picture! Give me Coastal Cabana everything!!!!

I then punched out, what felt like, a million circles (Ha! Probably only 30 really) to create the spotty background. The contrast of the Basic Black on the Coastal Cabana really makes the two colours pop and stand out! 

Then for the Whisper White panel I've used the new (available to customers June 1st) Stitched Labels Framelits Dies. I love any die with that stitching element. The stitched look just gives that extra special element to any creation and you don't have to pull out the needle and thread. Winning in my book and so much quicker than hand sewing or pulling out the Singer!

Under the stitched panel I've layered some of the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, Flirty Flamingo 3/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (Still available to purchase till 31st May), Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and some of the new Black 1/8" Cord. I'm really loving layering the polka dot tulle and the black cord together and that tulle ribbon is just amazing! I'm putting it on everything lately, its super pretty and it just goes with everything!!

Make sure you check out what inspired the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team from the inspiration picture and then come and join in this weeks challenge to show us what inspired you!  Can't wait to see your creations!
