~* Papercraft Star Challenge #12 - Photo Inspiration *~

Photo Inspiration (Katherynmd Etsy Shop)

Hi Everyone!

Happy Friday! Here's a card I made for Papercraft Star Challenge #12: Photo Inspiration. Typically, I try to use all the products I have, but this week...I just was tempted to purchase this Hero Arts stamp set. I had a lot of fun playing with it :)! And I actually just got the Martha Stewart doily lace punch and I'm lovin' it!!

~Paper: ivory cardstock; DCWV, Rhonna Farrer, and Deja Views designer paper
~Stamps/Inks: Hero Arts, black ink pad, Tim Holtz Distress Inks
~Misc.: Martha Stewart doily lace punch, Tombow pens
1. Cut a 4-1/4" (wide) by 5-1/2" (tall) piece of the DCWV DP.
2. Cut a strip of the blue Deja Views DP and use the punch to create a decorative edge on the top and bottom of the strip.
3. Cut a strip of the Rhonna Farrer DP.
4. Stamp the perculator and cup stamps. Color with the Tombow pens. Cut out the images and rub the edges behind with a stylus or the back of a paint brush to add dimension. Ink up the images with Distress Ink.
5. Place the perculator and the cup where you want them and stamp the steam curls. Also stamp the sentiment (I actually chose certain parts of the sentiment stamp).
6. Ink up the edges of all the DPs.
7. Adhere the DPs down. Adhere the images with foam tape for added dimension.

Come play along with us at Papercraft Star this week! We'd love to see your creations! You have until Noon tomorrow (Saturday)...then the voting begins and lasts until Monday. Come and vote for your fave!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

Lovely card Steph! I love that new stamp you have, come to think of it, I don't have any coffee cup stamp or images, maybe need to invest in some? LOL! I so love the blue too, thanks for sharing and have a good weekend ahead!
