Inspiration Wednesday!

Good morning my sweet friends & welcome back to another "Inspiration Wednesday!" 

Today my AWESOME team & myself created cards from something that inspired us!  The inspiration behind my card is that cute jar stamp & die set "My Thoughts are with You"!  When I designed that set, it TOTALLY inspired me to use the roses from the "Love You Bunches" set & put them into this jar as a vase!  I kept this card super simple so you can focus on the roses in the jar!  I just watercolored the background using Tim Holtz OLD PAPER ink to do a very soft background! 
Next I used Tim Holtz BARN DOOR, FESTIVE BERRIES, FOREST MOSS & PEELED PAINT to watercolor the roses.  For the jar, I used Tim Holtz PUMICE STONE & TUMBLED GLASS
I'm not sure if you can see, but I added glossy accents to the entire jar.  (I couldn't get a better pic). :(
Well, back to the watercoloring, as soon as I was done coloring all of the images, then I used the coordinating dies to but them out using my Vagabond.  I used lots of pop dots to pop up the cute flowers in the jar so they can stand out!  I stamped the sentiment from my BELIEVE IN YOUR DREAMS set!  Last I added some sparkly clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, adhered it to the base of my card & called it a night! ;)  I "wish" I would've been able to take a better picture so you can see how shiny it is in real life!

Okay, now onto my AMAZING team!!! Click on each name to visit each blog to see what everyone's inspiration was today! :) 

I just LOVE what my team has created!!! Don't you agree?? ;)

Well, no video today :(  I was on homework duty last night!  One of Anthony's classes is "Computer Applications" & the first thing they are learning is KEYBOARDING!  Well, my little guy was very frustrated so I gave him some tips & I sat with him & we practiced & practiced until he felt a little more comfortable with it!  I had to remind him that they JUST started to learn this & it will take some time!  I remember when I learned how to, as they call it now "keyboard" & I remember learning on an actual "typewriter"!!! lol…. It's so funny how times have changed….right?  I am confident that Anthony is at school today with a smile on his face because he understands it a little bit better now! ;) & THAT makes me a HAPPY Mommy! ;)

Thank you ALL for stopping by! I hope you all have a FABULOUS day & I will see you all back here soon!  xoxo

  1. Good Morning Miss Emma OMG Your card is so beautiful Your roses are Gorgeous You really did a great job on water coloring everything the colors are fabulous and pretty. I do love that you used just 2 roses definitely makes a statement & I am a huge fan of the Mason Jar and to me your pic is perfect but have to say I know it's amazing in person it's so hard to capture the shine! Cute story share and yep remember learning to type and for me it was the Underwood. Thanks for sharing your sweet Anthony Story definitely a moment in time to reminisce back on!
    Have an awesome day!! YOU ROCK!!

  2. Gorgeous card, Emma!!! The roses look perfect in the jar!

  3. Your card is so pretty! I like how you did the stems to look more like they are in water and the glossy is perfect for the jar. That is a lot of area to cover with the glossy! I like the soft background water coloring and the sentiment is so pretty with that font...nice choice. I love what the team created today...always fun to see their take on the inspiration. Fabulous job everyone!
