More Inspired Satisfaction

Today's card was inspired by Susanne of the blog Art Handicraft in the Village (translated into English) via her pin here. Once again, I never would have thought of making this card were it not for the lovely inspiration of Susanne's card.

As you can see, I stole was inspired by Susanne's stippled background and speckles (although her card has a much daintier, softer appearance than mine). I used a stamp to add the spots (my handy dandy StampinUp Itty Bitty Backgrounds stamp). The leaves are from Hero Arts' February kit, and I die cut three of them to look more vine-like as I didn't have a delicate enough branch or flower die to pull this off.

After I'd assembled the whole card, I decided that none of the threads I had would look nearly as nice as Susanne's, so I opted for (duh) bling as an embellishment.

And now, for no reason whatsoever, here are Cooper and George smiling at you. They hope you're smiling back.

Hard to believe that great big teddy bear used to be this tiny widdle puppy:

Mercy, grace, peace, and love,

stamps: StampinUp Itty Bitty Backgrounds, unknown sentiment
paper: Papertrey white
ink: various green dye inks
accessories: dies from Hero Arts February kit, glue pen, stipple brush, rhinestones, dimensionals


  1. Gorgeous card and Cooper and George look so happy.

  2. Card looks awesome & George & Cooper don't look too bad either! All is good in H Hts...finally no snow!

  3. I AM smiling back! I can't believe how big Cooper is!

    Love your card!
