TGIF Challenge 151: Double Inspiration...

Spring is coming!!!  YAY!!!  (Wellllllllll...kind of.  I live in Utah so you NEVER know what weather will really be like.)  Either way...with this week's TGIF Challenge...spring is coming in your craft space!  It's an inspiration challenge!  Look at this fun inspiration...

You could use flowers, the colors, anything!  I have been having a blast with the Beautiful Day stamp set and the new Brusho stuff.  So I have a DOUBLE inspiration for you...two cards! 

There are definitely similarities to both of them...same flower stamp, they are both embossed and then colored with Brusho, both use the FABULOUS *FREE* Sale-A-Bration Basket Weave embossing folder, etc.  And I think they are both kinda fun.  😀  There are some differences also, of course. 

This first one was a little more simple because no fussy cutting is involved...

Colors: Dapper Denim, Basic Black, Gold, Peach
Cardstock/Papers Watercolor Paper, Dapper Denim, Basic Black
Stamps: Beautiful Day
Tools: Big Shot, Basket Weave Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Iridescent Sequins, Rhinestones Basics, Gold Embossing Powder, Brusho Color Crystals, Linen Thread

Just LOOK at the depth and beauty of the color on that flower!  I used the yellow and then added a sprinkle or two of the orange brusho also. 

Then this one I fussy cut the flower.  Wasn't too bad, but probably wouldn't want to make a ton of them.

Colors: Whisper White, Very Vanilla, Gold, Copper
Cardstock/Papers Whisper White, Watercolor Paper, Basic Black, Springtime Foils Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Beautiful Day
Tools: Big Shot, Basket Weave Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Metallics Sequin Assortments, Gold Faceted Gems, Gold Embossing Powder, White Embossing PowderBrusho Color Crystals, Linen Thread

LOVING the *FREE* Springtime Foils Sale-A-Bration paper that you can earn FREE through the end of March.  It. Is. Gorgeous.  Truly stunning.  You need to get your hands on some if you haven't already.  😁 

I so hope you enjoy these projects and play along with us over at the TGIF Challenge Blog!!!

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you get any paper-crafting supplies!
