aMUSEd

I love this crafty blogging world of ours.  There are so many amazing creations and people who inspire out there!  I mean really, it is just amazing seeing it all.  Who is one of your favorite crafters or favorite creations?  I'd love to hear so I can check it out and see for myself.

One card maker I am in awe of is Joni Nina Anadaya (Papell with Love).  She makes the most amazing creations!  Most of them are elegant, though some are cute too.  One thing I love is that she always incorporates elements or patterns or something different that I would never think of.  Checking out her stuff inspires me to try new techniques, combine different products or just look at things differently.

So today, I am sharing a card with you that I made based the below card (which can be found here)  by one of my muses, Joni.



I was inspired by so many things, the colors the ombre effect of the pink, the ruffle at the bottom.  All of it really.  So I made a card based on this inspiration and here is what I came up with.  To make my card, I first I took my white CS and repeatedly stamped and embossed the shapes from Peacock Pretties from Reverse Confetti in Gold.  Like Joni, I applied an ombre wash of color using a watercolor pen, I used Cameo Coral (this is a retired SU! color that I just can't give up).  I then added the ruffle.  I am not sure what medium Joni used, but I applied mine with this awesome chevron tissue paper (if you stop here frequently you know tissue paper is my thing right now) and a little strip of sparkly paper, to mimic the effect of Joni's bow.  I added some DP from Teresa Collins You Are My Happy peaking out the top.  I finished it off with a sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop Monogram It and some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. What do you think?  I am no Joni Nina Andaya, but I am aMUSEd by the result and I hope you like it too.

There you go with the tissue again. This is awesome, such a fun take on Joni's card. I can see how you were inspired but definitely kept it your style with the tissue ruffle. I love cameo coral {do you have any of the cardstock left?!}. Awesome job!
