30 DOI- Day 24 & 25

Sorry I've been MIA lately. This past weekend I had a crop that I set up shop at and taught some make-n-takes and it took up a lot of my time. But I'm back today with two inspiration projects. The first one is inspired by Nichol Magouirk. That girl is super talented and I really liked THIS card set. I love how Nichol uses Copics and the Cuttlebug to emboss backgrounds, so I did a spin on that to create a simple set...

a closer look...The next card was inspired by the product I used on it. Quite often the product itself will get my creative juices flowing like this ribbon card set from Making Memories...All the ribbon looked so pretty lined up one right after the other so I did the same thing to the bottom half of my card. :) And I love how the butterfly turned out...To create this butterfly, I cut three butterflies out of white cardstock using a Stampin' Up die. Then I inked each one with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink by swiping the pad across the image. Then I sprayed with pearlized water to give it some shine. To finish it off, I ran the top butterfly through the Cuttlebug and embossed it. I layered them together (putting some foam dots in between to add dimension) and added some Hero Arts green gems to the center for the body.

So, what inspires you? I would love to see. Live a link to a creation inspired by a picture or one of the inspiration pieces shown and you'll be enter into a drawing for a chance to win a prize at the end of the 30 DOI. Can't wait to see your creations!

Be back soon! Thanks for stopping by!

Heather I love your card set with all the different colored flowers! And I just love the way you did the butterfly and the ribbon - so pretty! I am inspired by so many things on the HA flickr site and so many blogs that it's hard to pick just one!
