Inspirational Directions.....

For today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, I was inspired by the packaging shown in the small picture below. I first made it in the warm neutrals of caramel, gray, white and black. Then I redid it in the more eye popping colors of regal rose, bright greens, yellow, white, and black. Even though they are similar in design details, they have a whole different feel to them, even though the main image is exactly the same. That is why stamping can be sooooo much fun!! That is why you could take the same designer paper, the same image, the same embellisments, and even the same color scheme and make soooo many different cards!!!

Had planned to play in the workshop all day today, but we have decided we need to pull out the carpeting in the living room. So I guess instead of stamping happily, I will be moving furniture and pulling carpeting. Doesn't that sound like a wonderful way to spend a day??!!?? Hope you have some time to play today!!

Oh my, I love both of these cards equally but differently! Is that possible?? LOL The colors on each are gorgeous, but you've got to share how you made that AWESOME border on the first card! I've never seen one like that before and it's stunning!!!
