Inspiration: A Card and A Layout,

For me inspiration comes in many forms. A magazine ad. A print on a shirt. A piece of patterned paper. But most of the time my inspiration comes right from my fellow paper crafters!

This week, Lindsay is sponsoring Card Sketch #33 over at Inspirational Card Sketches. The winner of this week's sketch will receive $10 in digital stamps from LSS! Now that's a prize worth playing for. And the sketch is great, and very easy to work with.

The Sketch:

My take on the sketch:
I used the coffee mug and sentiment from Lindsay's Coffee Talk Set. This is a great set and has 3 other images, plus more sentiments for many different occasions. This is a great deal at only $5 for the whole set! Click here to see the whole set.

Be sure to check out the other DT's blogs to see what else Lindsay's Shop has to offer! Links are to the right!

While I was under the weather last week, I did manage to get some inspiration while browsing through some of my favorite blogs. Since I purchased my new favorite tool, the Cuttlebug , one of my favorite places to go for some inspiration is the Cuttlebug Challenge. While I was there, I found this awesome tutorial on embossing metalics, like aluminum foil and wrapping paper. Check out the foil in my card above!!! To learn how check out the tutorial here.

So I really wanted to see what this little machine could handle so I brought out some Grunge Board and some chipboard letters and went to work. Worked great with just the 'A' plate, the embossing folder, and the 'C' plate. Here is the layout I created with this technique!
Thanks for stopping by, and til next time, Happy Scrapping!
