Inspiration Challenge: Focus on the Puffs

Today's Inspiration Photo in the Sweet 'n Sassy forums at Splitcoaststampers is a beautiful array of chocolates but I was most taken with the puffs on the border!!


I used two sizes of flowers from Sweet 'n Sassy's Polka Dot Silhouettes.  The border is done by stamping once on a post it note and cutting it out.  Then using that post it to mask and layer the flowers.  For interest, I did pop a few and added brads and buttons.


I picked colors based on the inspiration photo: Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, Pumpkin Pie and Pool Party.

  • Stamps: Sweet 'n Sassy Polka Dot Silhouettes, Poppies and Greetings (sentiment)
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Pool Party, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana and Pumpkin Pie
  • Accessories: misc. brads and buttons

This is a totally gorgeous card, I love how you took the inspiration from the photo and made the flowers :)
I'm with Susan, the chocolate would have got my attention! Not for crafting reasons tho!
