Inspired by...Clare!

I'm so excited to share the work of our next talented stamper... Clare! You may know her as ctprezzia on flickr or her fun blog Bearydo Cards Inc.

Here is our first fabulous card by Clare:

And isn't it a beauty? I love her sparkling butterflies against the light pink background! The dark black ribbon makes a bold statement. The polka dot paper was the perfect choice to complement Clare's stamping. Finally, Clare makes the best shaped cards using her die cuts!!

Here is my take. I was so inspired by the pink/red color scheme as well as that dark black ribbon under Clare's butterflies. (And thanks, Kathy, for the fab elephant stamp!)


See you tomorrow with another of Clare's pretty creations!

Supplies---Stamps: Sentiment (Hero Arts CL294), Flourish (Hero Arts CG119), Elephant (Memory Box); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), White Gel Pen (Sakura); Other: Pearls (Recollections), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Scallop Punch (Fiskars)
