Welcome to day two of our Inspiration Blog Hop! I hope you enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful cards yesterday. Are you ready for some more? I'm at the end of the links, so if you are just joining, you might want to start at the beginning so you don't miss out on anything. Here we go:
First up is Theresa Momber's Vertical Greetings 2
I used Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals as a base for these beautiful flowers from Theresa's Vertical Greetings 2 set. The embossing folder I used for the background is from Cuttlebug and is called Gingham. I used Copic markers B00, B21, B34, YG95 to color the flowers. The card stock is Pure Luxury White, Powder Blue and Navy. I added a GKD navy and white gingham ribbon.
I know you've probably never seen a pink bird, but it kind of fit the color scheme. lol Lee this one's for you! I stamped the flowers on patterned paper from the Hello Sunshine paper pack. I used Spellbinders Long Rectangles Large and Long Scalloped Rectangles Large for the focal image. I cut out some extra flowers to pop-up with 1/4" pop dots. I used Copic markers E35, E40, E43, G24, G40, NO, R01, R12, R83, RV000, RV52, V20, V25, Y21 to color the bird and flowers.
The focal image was stamped on Pure Luxury White CS that was cut with a Spellbinders Square die and backed with a piece of Black Onyx CS that was cut with a Spellbinders Captivating Squares die. The background paper is from the Ang & Me patterned paper pack. I added some GKD black and white gingham ribbon and some MME enamel dots. The flowers and leaves were colored with Copic markers Y18, YR12, R17, YG95, YG97.
I stamped the focal image on Pure Luxury White CS and cut with a Spellbinders Classic Ovals die. I used a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals die for the Fresh Asparagus piece. I stamped my own background using the fern stamp from the Vertical Greetings 2 set. I used Copic markers E35, E43, E57, R12, Y18, Y21, YG95, and added a Fresh Asparagus double stitched ribbon.

Next up is Beth Silaika's Keep Calm
I used the fun sentiment Keep Calm and Love Life from the Keep Calm set and stamped it on Bubblegum Pink hearts that had been cut with a Spellbinders Classic Hearts die. I cut a black layer using Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Hearts. I made the background using white card stock and a Simon Says Falling Heart stencil and Bubblegum ink. I cut some Bubblegum hearts using a small Classic Heart die. A pretty ribbon & bow was added and some Recollections pink gems.
This is a fun one with lots of color. I used Lots of Dots and several colors of GKD ink to make the background. I used Spellbinders Standard Circles and Scalloped Circles to cut the white and turquoise sea circles and stamped the sentiment and stars. I colored the stars with Copic marker Y21. The twine is from Doodlebug.
I made the background with Recollections Purple Foil Paper and a Cuttlebug Love Triangle embossing folder. The picture looks blue to me, but it really is a very regal purple. I used white card and a Spellbinders Picot Edge Circle die as a base for the focal image. I sponged it with Sweet Corn and Wild Lilac inks and embossed the crown stamp using Zing! Gold Glitter Finish EP. I made a base for the sentiment using White and Wild Lilac card stock and Spellbinders Classic Ovals and Scalloped Ovals dies. I sponged the oval with Sweet Corn ink and embossed the sentiment with Zing! Gold Glitter Finish EP. I, also, embossed the edges of a piece of white card stock to back the purple foil layer. A thin gold ribbon was woven in the die cut.
I made the background by using the new cupcake stamp from the Keep Calm set and stamping on white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring with Copic markers B21, G40, R01, Y21, R83, V22 and Wink of Stella. I made an extra cupcake to pop-up with the sentiment. I punched three sections of lace using the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch and White, Passionate Pink and Powder Blue card stock. I used the PTI Notched Star Banner, Passionate Pink card stock and a Fiskars Crimper to make the banner. I used the Spellbinders Beaded Circles dies for the sentiment and extra cupcake. The edges of both pieces were sponged with Passionate Pink ink.
