Hey! Hope you're doing well.  I'm a little under the weather, but I think I'm starting to get better!! These bright colors help for sure.

I love this Thanks Scallop Border Die from SSS and I wanted to play around and see how else I could use it.  I decided to try die cutting a double scallop and it turned out really cool.  I stamped some of the solid butterflies from the Butterfly Dreams stamp set, from Reverse Confetti, behind the THANKS cutout. I used a large butterfly from the same set as the focal point.  I inked it up with three PURE Color Dye Ink colors {Shell Pink, Sweet Gelato and Cranberry Crush} I attached the scallop piece with some dimensional adhesive to add some interest and contrast between the white on white elements.

Thanks so much for coming by today.  Visit me tomorrow on the WPlus9 Blog where I'll be sharing another colorful design.  It's almost time for the WPlus9 March Release so keep an eye out for that!  As always, products are linked below {affiliate links used}

Hey Guys! Happy Saturday. {Just realized it's actually Sunday. Shows you how behind I am! Lol} I'm just now getting around to pinning to the Friday Inspiration File for this week.  Ooops!  In the meantime I thought I'd share a card I had on the WPlus9 Blog last week.  I pulled out an awesome die that I didn't have the chance to use when it was released.  It's called Outlined Roses.

Stop by the WPlus9 Blog for all the details.  Do you follow the WPlus9 Blog?  If not, you really should.  Not only does the Design Team post regularly, but Dawn also has a slew of Guest Designers each month.  So much great inspiration!

Have a great day! Thanks for popping in!

300 Weeks Of Inspiration Challenge

Friday, February 3, 2017

TGIF! It's here, the 300th week of the Friday Inspiration File!  Every 100 weeks it has become tradition that I challenge you to go through The File, find a project and use it to spark your creativity.  Your final product can be an exact copy or contain only one element of the original.  It's up to you!

Once you find that special project that inspires you, create your card and link it up below.  Just by linking up your project you are entered to win a $30 GC to your favorite online stamp store.  You must include in your post: who's project inspired you, what week they were added to the file and a link back to their blog.

My card today was heavily inspired by Torico from Stamp Paradise.  I added this card on Week #295.  I loved the white embossing on kraft with a hint of Copic coloring. I've used a few  Papertrey Ink supplies on this one.  A stamp set called In Bloom for my flowers and leaves, Polka Dot Basics for the white dots and Headline Alphabet Dies for part of my main sentiment.  All other supplies are linked below {affiliate links used}

So it's as simple as that... Visit The Friday Inspiration File, Get Inspired and Create.  Link up your projects here from now until 2/9/17.  That gives you a week.  I hope you can join in.  Remember to link back to the one who inspired you.  One entry will be randomly selected to win the $30 GC.  I will contact the winner directly as well as announce it here and on Instagram. 
If you don't have a blog, feel free to post on Instagram and link that here.  Just make sure you tag the person and give them credit for inspiring you! 
Good Luck!
