Inspired By Upholstery

Usually I take my inspiration for a card from a mood board on some challenge post or from another card but today I used one of my chairs and matching pillow.
All the coloring of the flowers (Power Poppy digital stamp) was done with Prisma pencils.  The yellow BG is Copic Y000.
I cut out the image with a Spellbinder Labels 3 and traced the outside of that die onto dark blue cardstock,  fussy cutting it for the backing of the image die cut.
Ribbon is tea dyed light blue seam binding ribbon, adorned with a small silk ribbon rose.

Big Stamps for Easy Cards

Right now "easy" is a welcome word.  I love to color with pencils and copics but summer is hectic and busy; not many chances to sit and make cards.  When I get a chance to color, I grab it but big stamps help make a fast card.
This verse stamp is by Stamploration and I love it and the other stamps with verses that I have ordered or won from this company.
One of the new challenges that I saw this week is to use some part of the decor in my home as inspiration for a card.  Here is the valance in my craft room which I used for my inspiration:
And here is my card:

As you can see, the designer paper is similar in the floral pattern and colors.   I stamped the verse with Stampin Up Ruby Red, using the Misti for solid color.  Die cut is done with Elizabeth Crafts Stitched Rectangle.
