IHP DT Inspiration Challenge

This month’s i {heart} papers Design Team Challenge was so much fun! Our challenge-meister, Deb Felts, gave us some gorgeous pictures of living spaces to inspire us in our creations. First I’ll show you the inspiration photo I chose:

inspiration-pink I love pink (big shocker, I know), and I just loved the way this bold pink played off the neutrals and the brightness of the sunlit room. I also wanted to pick up the elegant feel of the room. So this is what I came up with for my card:janIHP12-loveI used stamps from the LilyBee Design set Head Over Heels. It’s such a beautiful, elegant set. The motif is stamped on white cardstock using Desert Sand ink, which is in the Memento Sorbet Scoops Dewdrops assortment that Kate sells in the store. The LOVE is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. I punched out some hearts and popped them up with some Sticky Thumb dimensional dots. I backed it with the same pink (Hibiscus) cardstock and mounted the whole thing on a Kraft card.

TIP: to save paper, I punched the hearts out of the pink  layer that’s behind the main panel, since I knew it wouldn’t show.

I love how this card came out! I think I need to do more inspiration challenges. I had a hard time choosing which of the beautiful rooms to pick; I can’t wait to see which photos Kate and the rest of the IHP Design Team picked to work with, and what they did with them.
