Gremlins and Inspiration

Hi All,

Hope you're having a good week. What can I say? ... the gremlins have moved in again this week. Have you ever had one of those weeks where everything you start just seems to end in nothing? ... where all your ideas just don't seem to work???

Well, I had one of those or was it simply that I was preoccupied with trying to implement some changes. More about this when I can talk about it in more detail. Hopefully soon!

First up for today's inspiration is a collage stamped card I made to cheer myself up a little ...

I was working with several STAMPlorations sets at the time: Mixed Media Elements, Balloons and Banners, World Birthday Cakes, Trendy Butterflies and Bold Sentiments: Journey. All my background stamping was done using Smokey Slate ink, and I started off using 2nd generation stamping for the script, my cake, some of the hearts and my background sentiments. I then stamped my main sentiment in Rose Red and Black ink before adding the heart and stamps in first generation Smokey Slate.

I am entering my card at:
CASology - Heart

For more inspiration check out the STAMPlorations Blog especially if you like CASEing or challenges. There is always something you can play along with or comment to win.

I shall be back again soon.
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. This looks great to me, no sign of gremlins in here, but I do know what you mean.
    Hope things are OK with you. :)

  2. I love the collage effect you created Monika! No better way to cheer oneself up than a bit of stamping!
    Thanks for joining Casology this week!
