Idea Book Inspiration

Not only is the Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog your resource for ordering all of your Stampin' Up!  products, it is also full of great ideas.  My inspiration for today's card was taken right from the book.   On page 109 of the catalog I liked the card so much that I tried my own version, just added a different sentiment to fit what I needed, stamped a few more flowers, got a little creative with two different inks, and tied my bow on the other side. 

For today's card I started with a card base of Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  To this layer I used my Color Spritzer Tool and misted some Early Espresso ink on the front.  Next I stamped the flowers first with Whisper White craft ink, and then I stamped again with Crumb Cake ink.  I didn't stamp the images right on top of one another because I wanted to get a shadow effect.  I tore a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and added it to the bottom and stamped my sentiment and sponged some Pear Pizzazz ink around the edges.   I put my bow on the other side because I didn't want to cover the saying. 

For today's card I used the following:
Cardstock:  Pear Pizzazz #119795, Very Vanilla #101750
Ink:  Whisper White Craft #101730, Pear Pizzazz #119784, Crumb Cake #121030
Marker:  Early Espresso #119680
Stamp Set:  Just Believe #116948 wood mount or #120453 clear mount
Ribbon:  Whisper White 3/8" Taffeta #109070
Accessories:  Stamping Sponge #101610, Color Spritzer Tool #107066
