We are definitely experiencing beautiful spring weather around here this week! Unfortunately, I spent last week basking in 30 degree weather (that's Celcius, people!), laying out by the pool and suntanning... 14 degrees today felt *cold*!
But, I am back to reality (and LAUNDRY!), and have been catching up with blogland and Pinterest (priorities, right?)... and my friend Laurie recently posted some cards that reminded me of a couple that I made, but haven't managed to post yet!
I have a board on Pinterest where I put all kinds of random images that I see and think I could translate into a card somehow. I can't imagine what it must look like to people who follow me, but it does all make sense when I look in there! Anyway - this is one of those Pins that caught my eye!
I can't track down an original link to this one though - if you happen to recognize it, let me know so I can offer proper credit for it!
Here is the first card I created based on this image...
Not at all my typical style, but I *love* this card... it's graphic, it's bold, and the texture really pops. I think I was channeling my inner Amber on this one!
So then I decided to do something a little more my style, with a softer feel:
This time, I used patterned papers, I roughed up the edges, and the heart is peeking through a negative die cut. Small differences for a completely different look.
So, are you like me? Do you see completely random inspiration in the strangest places? *wink*
Thanks so much for popping in!
