Inspired By Stamping Challenge #47

Inspired by Stamping offers an inspiration challenge every Thursday (Queensland, Australia time). The challenge lasts for one week, then a new photo is revealed! Here is the photo/color combination for this week's challenge!

 
I love this inspiration photo! I especially love the purple bike! I don't use much purple, but lately have been really crushing on purple and green together!


 I used my brand new Graphic 45 paper pads for this card! I stamped the jar from Mason Jars onto the purple printed paper, making sure to line up the key on the paper with the center of the jar. I colored the jar lid with Copic markers.

I used Fancy Labels Dies 1 to cut out the blue paper. I placed the next smaller label over the top of the die cut, and traced around it with a purple Copic marker. Does that look awesome or what?!


I used sentiments from the Flowers Bloom set. (I also stamped on the inside of the card and forgot to take a photo!) I stamped the sentiment with purple pigment ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.

 
I added ribbon, flowers, twine, a button...oh my. Love these colors!
 
Now, come and play along with the team!
 
Basic rules of the challenge: Please use the colors in our photo as your main colors. Upload your card/project to your blog or online gallery and leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of the IBSIC Blog post. When uploading to online galleries please add IBSIC #47 to your post. (Each challenge is up for one week.)
 
At this time ALL products (stamps, paper, dies) are welcomed with our challenge. You do not have to incorporate an IBS stamp set or flowers.

  15. This is totally gorgeous! I LOVE the color palette! I am crushing on mason jars right now and am waiting for a mason jar stamp and a mason jar die to come in so I can get busy with them! I am not even going to wait to get into my new house to break them in because I am so excited! Thank you for sharing this beauty with us!
