Inspire Me

2016-05-08 21.03.06-1
Happy Wednesday!!!
Today is inspire me day on the MCT blog. I have two cards to share, this 1st card was inspired by this card. I love the background, so I thought I would try making something similar. I used Distress inks, water, and the Hexy Background Stamp Set. The sentiment is from the You're My Lucky Charm set and the clover is from the You're My Pot of Gold Stamp Set - REVISED.

My second card was inspired by this card. I really like the design/layout of the card, so I kept mine pretty close to the original. I changed up the theme to birthday by using the Let's Party Word Dies and the Sweet Wishes Stamp & Die Set.

Today's card was made with the new Greatest Handyman Set and the Circle Balloon Dies. I thought it would be fun to make a large balloon shaped card with the largest balloon die. I stamped the tool stamps to create a pattern on the kraft paper. The gift card was placed in the Tag Gift Pocket Die that I stamped it with the Stripey Background II Stamp and a sentiment from the Greatest Handyman Set. I attached it to the front of the card and then tied on a small pieces of twine for fun.
