Me and Pinterest
Seriously, how much do we love Pinterest!?! A couple months back I pinned a video tutorial of this INSANELY cute alligator card and I FINALLY had time to make it today. It features a 2014 Stampin Up Sale-a-Bration stamp set called See Ya Later (sorry folks, if you didn't already get it from Stampin Up, you're gonna have to peruse ebay) along with the Decorative Dots embossing folder also from the Sale-a-Bration. To see the tutorial, click HERE. But this isn't just about copying someone else's designs, this is about getting your hands dirty and trying something new to get your own mojo working. I'm talking about inspiration
So here it is.... I MADE this adorable creature. I didn't like the last line on the sentiment so I simply taped over it with scotch tape before inking. AND THEN..... this little guy led to THIS little guy:
Not exactly perfect. I used a Spellbinder's petite oval to round off the bottom. I'm going to play with that a little. A Stampin Up demonstrator friend of mine is going to bring me her Adorning Accents Edgelits. I'm thinkin that just might be the perfect fix. But until then, I'm pretty thrilled with how cute this is.
I think my favorite part of this little birthday note card is the fly (NOT a Stampin Up stamp BTW)!
Welp, back to Pinterest for more inspiration!!!!
