I went to a couple of quilt shows this afternoon and got inspired again. I may have to stop cardmaking for a while and get busy with a quilt. Well, maybe not yet. I usually reserve my quilt making for when we go south in the winter. It's easier to transport my sewing machine and fabric than my Cricut and cartridges and paper and ribbon and glue and, well you get the picture. I do plan to get enough cards made by then to be able to post while I'm gone, though.
Just like the concert and quilt show inpired me, I also get inspired by all the terrific bloggers out there. Even if the cards are not my style, I can still be inspired by their creativity and/or beauty. If only there were more time in a day to check out more blogs but then I'd never get anything done for myself.
My card inspiration for today is the sketch from Mojo Monday .
Cooking with Cricut asked for a card with a cake, cupcake or teddy bear on it. I decided the combine the two to make a birthday card.
The three printed papers are from a 6 x 12 stack from Cricut called Celebrations. I found a matching blue and yellow to make the rest of the card. The scalloped piece was cut from MS Elegant Cakes and embossed with Swiss Dots, The cupcake is from Doodlecharms and the frosting is embossed with Divine Swirls. I also heat embossed the swirls with clear embossing powder. The lines on the cupcake paper are made with my Score-board. The "happy" square and the cupcake are mounted at different levels with dimensionals.
