Stippled Blossoms and Just Believe for the Divas!

Do you ever envision a card or an idea in your head and then when you get it on paper, it's NOTHING like what you thought it would be? too! And that's what happened as I was working on today's card for the Inspiration challenge.

I had an idea in my head and I knew I wanted to use Stippled Blossoms. Well...first off I had to stamp it THREE times (and yes! I was using my stamp-a-majig), so maybe that should have been the first clue!

Once I had the card all together, it just looked BLAH. So, I added a whole BUNCH of Dazzling Details. That didn't do much for it either...

So I just decided to quit while I was ahead and make a whole OTHER card. *sigh*

This one turned out MUCH better:

For this one, I opted for the Just Believe stamp set. I stamped the round images in Daffodil Delight on Whisper White. They were then punched out with the 1 1/4" circle punch and then matted on a piece of Whisper White punched with the 1 3/8" circle punch before being adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The sentiment (also from Just Believe) was stamped in Staz-ON. And THEN, I was happy because this card much more closely matched the idea that was in my head - YAY!

Here's the inspiration piece we were given:

INK: So Saffron, Summer Starfruit, Daffodil Delight, Staz-ON
