Inspired Again!

Hey everyone!

I've got a card to share with you tonight that was inspired by my good friend, Nancy. She has a wonderful blog called Happy Heart Studio, and she also writes blog posts for her local stamp store called, Stamp Fever, where she teaches card making classes too. She is one talented lady, and when I saw this post here, I knew I just had to CASE one of those fabulous cards! (Scroll all the way down to the end of her post to see them.)


Nancy used the beautiful , Prim Poppy die-cut from memory box for her card. I happen to LOVE this die-cut and couldn't wait to use it again!



I used Nancy's idea of the script in the background and the larger, darker sentiment too. I wanted to do something a bit different, so I added some Stickles to the poppies. I haven't used Stickles in so long - love their pretty glitter effect!

Thank you, Nancy! I'm so glad you share your talent - you inspire me!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

That has to be one of the most gorgeous dies. I can't believe that tiny stem actually removes from the die! Love your card and the color choice. So cool.

So very lovely Barb! Nancy's card struck me, too - she is so special! Altho I am a big fan of Memory Box dies, I don't have this one. I really like the contrast of the background writing and the bold sentiment. And, I can never get enough Stickles! This is so delicate and pretty.
