Stampin' Up! Flower Fest card and Inspiration Photo

Good Morning My Stamping Friends,   Today I’m sharing a card I made a few weeks ago right before I left for the Stampin’ Up! Convention 2011. I was working on a project and was having a stampers version of ‘writers block’. So I took a break and had brunch at a friend’s house. While I was there she showed me her new front porch furniture and cushions. They were so bright and cheery that they snapped me out of my ‘stampers block’ and as soon as I went home I was inspired to make this card.

I used the Flower Fest and Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp sets and the new Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon. There is a supply list at the end of the post to make it easier for you.

Here are my inspiration photos of the colorful and cheery cushions on my friend’s porch.

What do you think? Can you see the resemblance? Leave a comment and let me know.

I’m off to clean up from my 2 stamp clubs yesterday and to get some work done in my craft room. I’m hoping to get some cards done so I can schedule some posts for my blog for next week when I’m on vacation. Read ‘vacation’ as: visiting my folks in NY on the way to take our daughter to Boston for her annual check up with her radiation oncologist. I can’t believe it’s been almost 2 years since we finished that part of her treatment. We are a very lucky and blessed family!

Hope you have a great day.


P.S. If you’re local, or in town for a visit, I’d love to have you come to my Open House this Friday night. Visit my web calendar at for all the details and to RSVP.
