I AM Etsy-Inspired.....

It's official! (see announcement).  I am now on the design team for EtsyInspired Blog! (YES, VIRGINIA! ) This blog has always been dear to my heart. I love the variety that the Etsy shops have to offer and I often find tons of inspiration from the handmade craft items. This challenge encourages paper crafters of all levels to participate in the weekly challenge. With the random draw for prizes, you simply can't go wrong. I learned so much from taking part in the challenges in the past, so I'm hoping you can come and join the fun!
Now onto the current challenge, the shop is Kimmieprout (Polymer Clay Embellishment). Please check out the Giveaway (A 15$ gift certificate + free shipping). The sponsor of the challenge for the random draw prize is Pink Cat Studio (winner get 5 digi images!).
~go to  the shop here
~find inspiration and make a project
~link it to the blog here by July 9, Friday noon Pacific time
~random winners will be chosen to win amazing prizes!
This is what got me inspired! Isn't it LOOOVELY!?
I got out my fruit stamps and came up with this.

I also added the popsicle stamps ( from Imaginice) and added that Glossy Accent (love that stuff!).
 
We all need to be reminded to"Enjoy the Little Things". So I'm going to eat some strawberries now....Please check out the design team's work for some fabulous inspiration!

ivy said...

congrats!! yummy card! love the twin popsicle. i have fond memories of sharing a rootbeer twin pop with my sis when we were younger. you'd have to hit the popsicle down the middle just right on a tablet edge or else it'd break. sometimes, one would be whole & the other broken but my older sis would always let me have the unbroken one! fun times....

Heather Maria said...

Big congratulations Virginia - you are perfect for the Etsy Inspired DT! Those buttons look yummy and I love your card inspired by them. Love the glossy fruit and ice pops! The embossed buttons and heart with twine look fab too!
