Cloud9 Blog Hop

Good morning! Welcome to the Cloud9 blog hop! I am thrilled to be this month's guest designer. Our challenge was to create a card based on this inspiration photo:


I was immediately drawn to the crisp white walls and comforter, accented with bright red, blue, green, and yellow. I wanted to achieve the same look on my card so I pulled out Wplus9's Folk Art Flurries and Pretty Patches: Tree:

(Supplies - Stamps: (Wplus9) Folk Art Flurries and Pretty Patches: Tree. Ink: (Stampin' Up!) Midnight Muse, Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit. (PTI) Pure Poppy. (VersaMark). Cardstock: (PTI) Rustic White, Pure Poppy). Other: White embossing powder, red gems.)

I love the results! Wplus9's stamps inked up beautifully with Stampin' Up's new foam ink pads, and the non traditional color combination is very striking in person. I hope my card has inspired you to pull out your stamps this weekend and create a card for the Cloud9 blog hop!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Erin.

I agree Erin! This is amazing!? At first glance it looks random, but then it looks like it actually follows a pattern. Am I crazy? And if not, how the heck do you get it so perfect!?
