Pinterest Inspired Thursday

I love this week's Pinterest Inspired Challenge at
BELLA BLVD

And everyone has a stash of paperclips laying about, so why
not dress them up with buttons, resin pieces, ribbon, washi tape, etc.

LEAF WITHOUT YOU Card
I have been wanting to create a card with this stamp and the inspiration photo harkened 
me to try stamping the leaves onto some of the Designer Tape! I placed the strips onto
 white cardstock and then stamped the image sporadically several times over the tapes. 
Next, I hand-cut the leaves and added a small foam adhesive square to the back of each. 
After stamping the entire image again onto a white cardstock, I placed the matching
 leaves over the design. For extra detail, I embellished a plain paper clip with a 
Button Market button and a high tack adhesive dot!

 Supplies: Max: That's My Boy; Family Forever: Candid Cards; 
Button Market: Masculine Mix; Design Tape: Pickle Juice Chevron, Pickle Juice Dot; 
Unity Stamp: Leaf Without You

WHAT A GUY Card
While looking through the Max Collection, I was drawn to the various star stickers
 found on the Treasures & Text sheet. I added them to a paper clip with a
 high tack adhesive dot and then clipped them to the side of the paper swatch. 
I let the Border paper do most of the work and only accented further with
 some hand-stitching at the top and a crochet heart.

 Supplies: Lucky Starz: Carrot Starz; Max: Borders, Treasures & Text; 
Crochet Hearts: Saltwater; Button Market: Masculine Mix

There are two really neat-o layouts using this challenge up on the blog as well
I hope that you have a very fabulous weekend, friends!

  1. Super Terrific cards - your use of clips on each of them is so different but helps complete the look of the card!! You just have a knack for making things look so clean and polished! I would really like to share my blog with you - it is daisiesgirl.com. I know you are incredibly busy but I would be so honored if you could come by and look around and tell me what you think!! Thanks and have a day as beautiful as you are!!

  2. Awesome cards! I love the way you made your own clips! I gotta try that! I especially love your first card (such pretty colors)--I pinned it over at the Bella blog earlier this week. ;)
