I love playing along with Beate’s Inspiration Challenges. This week the inspiration piece is this beautiful bed linen.


Here is the card I made for it.


The coverlet inspired me to use an embossing plate from Spellbinders that I bought several months ago and still had not used. I colored in the leaves on the main image using a blender pen and reinkers. See those tiny little Raindots on the flower centers? Aren’t they cute! The sentiment is from Flourishes “Many Sentiments” set.

And I also wanted to share this wonderful Mother’s Day card that my DS and DDIL, Kimberly, made and sent to me.


I just love the way she stamped the sentiment in the corner where the designer paper has been torn away. And isn’t the sparkle on the bodice such a sweet and perfect little detail. I love this card!

  25. Awesome card, Susan. Love the embossing. Have a question — Can you use the embossing plate in the Cuttlebug or do you need the Wizard? I ask because I absolutely love the way it looks! This is such an elegant card and really is an amazing take on the inspiration piece.

  35. So when you see Kimberley or when she comes up here do the two of you sit and stamp?!? I would LOVE that! Lyndsey is not one bit interested in anything I’m interested in…so I have no one to “play” with…my only hope is that Michael can reel in someone who will like to play…but that’s not looking promising either! I love the card she made, too. My sister made me some wedding cards to give away…isn’t that great? and I gave one to Kirstin Cornett for her shower and she opened the envelope and studied the card and commented on how cute it was and I was just thrilled – couldn’t wait to tell my sister that her card was appreciated! For Labor Day I’m going to be laboring around the manse – it’s a sty and I can’t take it any longer! Have a great day and the next time you make a “supply” run take me with you! Nan

  36. The Inspiration Challenge card #13 you created is so beautiful. There is something about the layout and the colour choices that, if I saw it on SCS I’d put it into my favs.
