Cherry Inspired Somethings


What's so ironic about this card is that nothing is stamped! I was inspired by the Stamp Something challenge blog inspiration piece {that had cherries on it} to make my card red, white & black with red flowers instead of the cherries. That's what is so neat about inspiration pieces - everyone tends to pick up different aspects of it for their interpretation. I love the bag Melissa did - and she is giving it away filled with Hershey's Cherry Cordial kisses to the random winner! The white polka dots on the bottom are actually punched out of the black stripes with my 1/8" hole punch.

And while I had my red, black & white cardstock out I figured I would draw some inspiration using Melanie's Just So Sporty set by Gina K Designs since those are the colors of one of the local high schools in our area. I went to their webpage & picked out some pics of their cheerleader uniforms to re-create it. How fun is that? It's hard to tell in my photo with the red on red cardstock but the red background piece has CHEER leader all over it. I stamped 2 jersjeys, cropping off the sleeves & bottom for the top and cropping off the top of the jersey for the skirt. Possibilities...endless... Pin It

Great cards! Love that first one, it looks like Mary Engelbreit and the punched out holes are awesome! The next card could totally be my high school with BHS, but it needs to be blue and white!

I love this color combo...seriously scary, I'm in the middle of working on a card with this color combo. Anyway, back to your adorable cards. The first reminds me a bit of Mary Engelbreit and the second one is just genius - the background you created and the cheerleading uniform is adorable!
