Inspiration Challenge

I've been feeling a little "out of sorts" lately with my stamping. As in I haven't really liked anything I've done for the last month or so. So yesterday I sat down and decided to do Saturday's inspiration challenge over at Splitcoast HERE. The inspiration for the colors on these cards was from this Garnet Hill Quilt. I finally I feel like I'm back in the groove again. The 2 papers I used here are very different lines...the maroon polka dotted paper is from Daisy D's "Maybe Baby" valentine collection, and the floral papers are from a Making Memorie's "Chelsea's place" paper pack.
Stamp is by Anna Wight for Whippersnapper, called "Flowerpot Snail". Friend Lana Lepinski stamped off a bunch of images for me to play with!
I used my Stampin Up corner punch to punch gingham corners and sew them onto the snail image.
Sentiments by Papertrey from their "Little Lady" stamp set.

I'm so glad that girl, Lana Lepinski, stamped some of these babies off for you! Love these LZ! I think you are nuts for not liking any of your work for the past month! Maybe you should open up your eyes when you look at them! Ha ha!

It's official....the mojo draught is over and creativity is flowing again....although I TOTALLY disagree with your assessment of the projects done this past month. I thought they were WONDERFUL!!!

As for these sweet cards...I LOVE THEM...LOVE the stitching on the corner punches and along the side of the image. The mixing and matching of the paper is FANTASTIC too. Keep 'em coming, LZ!
