Inspiration: So Very Grateful Tempting Turquoise and Gumball Green

So Very Grateful Turquoise and Gumball Green

Do you wonder how to come up with with inspiration for ideas for cards, scrapbook pages, and any other projects? Often it just takes seeing a combination of colors or textures or a focal point. One day I came across this color combination in a catalog or magazine ad and it just struck me. I tore the page out and actually used the idea!  The colors reminded me of our Tempting Turquoise and Gumball Green, plus Whisper White.

Inspiration: Turquoise and Green

As you can see, I made the card at the top based on this color combination. I also added some Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper which had Gumball Green in it to the side panel and tied on a piece of Gumball Green 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon. I stamped the pretty flower image from So Very Grateful and colored with Stampin’ Write Markers and a Blender Pen. You can see my technique for that on my Stamping With Karen Facebook Page HERE. Go over and “LIKE” my page and be a “fan”! And I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter with my 2-Way Glue Pen.

I decided not to add a greeting yet, depending on how I want to use the card in the future.  Doesn’t hurt to just have a plain card for a note either!

I hope this will show you one way to find inspiration in creating your projects!  Often it just takes one little thing to get started–maybe a scrap of paper, maybe a color combination, maybe a piece of ribbon, who knows?! Just keep working and it will come to you easier and easier! Go page through a magazine now or look through your designer paper for color combinations and make something!
