OLW127 Pinterest Inspiration


I had a hard time stamping yesterday.

I ruined a lot of card stock.

Wasted some bling.

It was sad.

When I told my mom, she said, "You took too long a break from stamping. You need time to get back in the groove."

She was right. I've hardly stamped anything in weeks and have been posting cards made in January.

But finally, late yesterday afternoon, I made this for OLW127 on Cheryl's blog using THIS PIN for inspiration.

Whew. It looks just fine.

I loved that Cheryl posted this challenge because I spend all sorts of time pinning things but rarely use what I pinned for the purpose intended. Thanks, Cheryl, for keeping all that pinning from being a waste of time!

stamps: SU, Papertrey
ink: Memento, Ancient Page
paper: Papertrey
accessories: rhinestones, corner rounder


  1. I love the movement conveyed by the flowers. The colors and bling are so pretty :)

  2. Love your curves ... on the card! LOL It made me smile. ;-)

  3. I have had the same trouble lately. Life has been too full of the unexpected to stamp so I've been posting cards made way back and just managing to fill by schedule commitments. When I finally had some uninterrupted time to stamp it took a while before I was happy with the results.
    Your card is delightful and a nice interpretation of the cake's design.

  6. Beautiful card and I love where you got your inspiration from.

  7. Fantastic card - love the cheery pops of colour!

  8. Stunning, Susan :) I'm sorry to hear you had "difficulty" - it did surprise me somewhat, I have this perception that my "card making heroes" don't suffer these types of afflictions :op

  9. Susan, Your card is stunning! With the colors, design, and the bling, it's a wonderful interpretation of your inspiration pin.

    Thanks for playing along.

  10. My kinda wonderful - its a beautiful card! Jo x

  11. This card is just gorgeous Susan. And I assumed you make every card perfectly first time, it's just me who seems to have a three to one ratio :-)
