Inspired by Kind Thoughts



The Inspirational Challenge on SCS today is an amazing collection of fabric from Amy Butler. I knew right away that I wanted to focus on the red and white fabric with the polkadots! So fun and such a perfect Valentine combination! The sketch is from Beate's WSC #30. She is such an fabulously talented stamper! My chipboard heart from On Board Accents is a lot larger than I first thought so I had to stray a bit from her sketch. The heart is covered with Berry Bliss dp, then stamped with a Kind Thoughts flower, edged with the red bead duo and dotted with some red rhinestone stickers. The other dp is from the prints pack. This 6x6 pad is a hostess level 1 product! I tried to make the ribbon appear to be waving. Not sure if that worked...........
Recipe:
Stamps: Kind Thoughts
Paper: whisper white, prints pack dp, berry bliss dp
Ink: real red, pretty in pink
Accessories: red bead duo, red rhinestone stickers, on board accents chipboard, red 5/8" ribbon, pink 1/4" ribbon, oval punch, stampin dimensionals
