lsc103-summer-joy-jami-feb-07.jpgI love getting inspiration for stamping projects from all sorts of different places.  One of my favorites is when I’m out shopping and I see blouse or skirt or something with a striking or unexpected color combo.  Here’s a card I made after spying a cute cotton summer blouse at Macy’s – the fabric had a white background and a paisley print of Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink and More Mustard.  I never would have come up with this color combo on my own!  Pink and Mustard?  The Limited Supply Challenge on SCS was to make a Summer card, so I used that Summer Blouse as my inspiration.

Another color combo I fell in love with while shopping: Real Red, Buckaroo Blue, Creamy Caramel and just a touch of Regal Rose.  I spotted this on an adorable infant dress at Target while shopping for a baby gift. Unfortunately the gift was for baby boy so I couldn’t purchase the dress, but I came home and started playing with the colors right away.  The pattern on the dress was a bold floral so I started looking at floral sets but then I saw my brand new Big Pieces set and knew it would be perfect!  I made this card for my niece’s 20th b-day.  She was the 4 year old adorable flower girl in my wedding…makes me feel kind of old.  LOL!  The focal image is simply the sentiment stamped in Real Red ink on Confetti White cs and then traced over with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.  The the whole thing is covered in Versamark and embossed with 3 layers of Clear Embossing Powder.
