Inspired by... Stampersuzz!

Welcome to another week of inspiration! This week the featured stamper is Sue (AKA Stampersuzz on flickr)! Her cards are always magnificent works of art! Every time I stop by her blog I am blown away by her creations! Let's get started; shall we?

Here is Sue's first inspiration card. It's actually a tag (which she is VERY talented at creating, BTW!): First of all, I love the colors on this tag. The orange and black are so bold and fun. The layered strips of cardstock, stamping, and butterflies make for a wonderful design and a great starting off point for inspiration! The butterflies all lined up in a row almost create the illusion of ruffles or a border punch- something very unique that I haven't seen before! Finally, the two little buttons with twine finish off this beautiful tag perfectly!

Here is my take on this fun tag:


Thanks again for stopping by. I can't wait to share Sue's creation for tomorrow- it'll knock your socks off! :)
