Welcome to another Cards on Wednesday post!
This week at Lily Bee we are sharing what inspires us to create and for our post today Summer and I have created cards inspired by some of our favorite quotes.
There are many places where you can find quotes: your favorite books, movies or songs, billboards, poems and if you are like us, you find them on Pinterest. It seems that there is a bounty of scrappy inspiration waiting to be found there!
And here is the card that she created:
Summer said, "I combined the idea of the graphics of a subway sign and the use of the negative cut outs to create this card. I love to play with the text so when I sat down to create this card I knew I was going for a simple bold look. Kraft cardstock is one of my go to colors because it is such a neutral base. Colors pop and ideas sing with a great neutral base."
Here is a closer look at her card:
I really like how Summer layered the butterflies and added the jewel centers.
Supplies: Pinwheel (Kite Strings, Lemonade Stand, Sprinklers Flower Box & Lime Rickey Patterned Papers) and Sweet Shoppe (Embellishment Bundle)
Isn't it fantastic? Her clean and simple style always includes just the right details.
You can find more quotes that inspire Summer on her Pinterest board here.
The first quote that I used for my card inspiration was this which can be found on my Pinterest board here:
This is the card I created using strips of paper from the new Pinwheel and Sweet Shoppe collections:
I used a small star punch and kraft cardstock and like the look of the neutral kraft against the brighter colors.
Supplies: Pinwheel Collection (Cherry Blossom, Sprinklers, Cartwheels), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Lemon Drop, Lollipop, Candy Stick, Cotton Candy), Persnickety Collection (ABC Stickers).
I really like how the "Be You" is in a different color and did the same on my card. What an important message this sends, don't you think?
I put my paper punches to work on this card, too. I added a few paper strips to the Pinwheel paper background and simply added the quote using ABC Stickers.
Supplies: PInwheel Collection (Cherry Blossom, Picnic Basket, Sprinklers), Persnickety Collection (ABC Stickers), Sweet Shoppe Collection (Lemon Drop).
We hope that you have been inspired to create using some of your favorite quotes and that if you do create something new (or if you've created something quote-inspired in the past) please share your project with us on our Facebook page or on Flickr.
Have a wonderful day!
