Sweet inspiration!

Hey folks, happy Monday and welcome to a brand new challenge. This week we have a yummy scrummy photo-inspiration challenge for you. The photo has come from an amazing blog, Glorious Treats – I recommend a visit – WOW! Here’s what Kate has picked to get our creative juices flowing:

I knew as soon as I saw it that my card would have to feature my beloved Heart Prints set. I also used the Banner Builder set for the first time too – love it! The patterned paper is from the Simple Valentine collection which is just a perfect match to the designs on some of the cookies in the photo. Mmmmmm, cookies!

Card Details
I {heart} U
Stamps: Heart Prints, Banner Builder
Ink: Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst
Cardstock: True Black
Patterned Paper: Simple Valentine
Ribbon: Hibiscus Burst
Accesories: 1 3/4 ” circle punch,

Over to Aimes
“Well I had a trusty old set sat on my table from a previous inky session: Around and About Sentiments. I forget just how sweet that set is and I found it totally fitted in with this fortnight’s challenge!

Card Deets
{Thinking of you}
Stamps: Around & About Sentiments
Ink: Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, Dark Chocolate
Cardstock: Stamper’s Select White
Accessories: Dark Chocolate Grosgrain Ribbon/Glossy Accents/Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Chompy! (Corner Chomper)

Wouldn’t you agree? If you’ve got this set, you’ll realise that this is a tiny card: I have to confess that in my book when it comes to cards the smaller the sweeter 😀 Ooh and a good dollop of Glossy Accents also helps sweeten up that larger heart with some super shiny goodness – though my photography struggles to capture it!”

Over to Kate: “Like Caryn the gorgeous photo made my head straight for my Simple Valentine papers and Heart Print stamp set. I kept it CAS – just the way I like it ;)”


Stamps – Heart Prints
Ink – Pure Poppy/Versafine Black

And what could I win we hear you say?! Well our prize this week is this fabulous PTI stamp set:

Here are the challenge deets:

* To enter, use our inlinkz thingy at the bottom of this post (be aware that we’ve got a new linky thingy!). Please leave the correct URL for your entry post and not just your generic blog address! If you’re having problems then just leave a comment with a link to your post featuring the project on your blog or online gallery.

* Worldwide entries are more than welcome to share the inspiration and can be in with a chance of being a Top 3 PTI Passionista, but unfortunately prizes can only be shipped within Europe!
