Inspired by... Linda (aka Oz)!

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by! Because of the holidays, this week I am sharing a shortened version of "Inspired by.." featuring the talented Linda aka Oz. One fabulous talent of Linda's is making stamping videos. Be sure to check out her blog, as she always posts links to her fun videos there.

Here is our first card by Linda:

I love her beautifully distressed background featuring holly leaves and vintage text. The combination of the grossgrain ribbon and the satin ribbon is so pleasing to the eye! Her sentiment looks great with the die cut. Finally, the gems below the sentiment add the perfect bit of bling to this gorgeous card!

To see how Linda created her gorgeous background, you can visit her videos here (part 1) and here (part 2).

Here is my take on Linda's card:


I created my background using the techniques in her video, then cut it apart into three panels. I had so much fun distressing and building up the layers on this particular background. Linda's video mentioned some great tips and I was SO inspired to start stamping after I watched her create!

See you tomorrow with another of Linda's great cards!
