Little Odd Forest Inspiration Challenge (IC181)


This is for today's Inspiration Challenge, which was to take inspiration from the Little Odd Forest website {Click here for my inspiration piece}. The sunshine and sentiment are from the same stamp set, but I couldn't find a single cloud in my collection! So, to match the style of the card (and my inspiration), I hand drew the clouds, embossed the paper and then cut them out. The sunshine is stamped on the base, then stamped again and cut out. I also used a Build-a-Brad for a little extra dimension in the center of the sun. My finished card is an itty bitty 3.5 x 3.5".

Ingredients: Stamps: Inkadinkado {Tell It Like It Is}; Cardstock: DCWV {Textured Orange}, Stampin' Up! {Barely Banana, Carribean Blue, Real Red, WW}; Ink: Stampin' Up! {Basic Black}; Accessories: Stampin' Up! {Build-A-Brad, Dimensionals}, White Gelly Roll pen, Cuttlebug EF.

I'm a big fan of the Inkadinkado kid sentiments, but I haven't seen this one yet -- what a great one! Perfect way to showcase it, too. Your clouds are awesome!!
