My guest today is the awesome Virginia Lu of Yes, Virginia. I love that she does classy and elegant & cute and whimsical with such ease. And uses colours oh-so brilliantly! She's an avid stamper and always offers a fresh and unique perspective on using her craft supplies. Swing by her blog and you are sure to be inspired by her wonderful creations.:) Today she is sharing how window shopping inspires her
and hosting an inspiration challenge with a fabulous prize for one lucky player!
Let's check out her drool-worthy creations!
Let’s start shopping for inspiration....
Are these bags gorgeous? I took the inspiring design and decorated a paper bag!
Creative prompt-Kraft paper, ribbons, nature theme, simple layered stamping
note: for the flowers, I stamped in two shades (bright yellow light brown). That way the flowers will look even fuller in bloom.
You see all the trendy colors and patterns in these photos. I took a few small stamps and created three thank –you cards
Creative Prompt: create background with a small stamp, emboss, resist emboss, repeated stamping
The colors are so simple, yet the patterns and textured background make the design a stand out. I decided to stamp on sticky back canvas and made two cards.
Creative prompt: textured background, distressing, monograms, stamping on canvas
I hope you can join the challenge with me and Yvonne. You can use the creative prompts to make any projects that strike your fancy. I am offering a gift certificate of $15 from The Crop Stop to the winner of this challenge. I can’t wait to see what inspires you!! Lastly, thank you, Yvonne, for this opportunity to host a challenge with you! It definitely gives me a push to be extra creative!!
Ready to play along? Please post your newly created projects based on any of the 3 inspirational prompts via Inlinkz [located at the end of the post] by Friday May 18.
As always, please leave a little love for my guest Virginia.
