Inspiration Everywhere!!

Yesterday I had my monthly Stamp Club over to my house to make cards and to share some laughs! As some of you may know, I love the Betsy's Blossoms Stamp Set. So of course one of the cards we were making for stamp club centered around Betsy's Blossoms.

Before the Stampers' arrived, Carol, my summer intern, came over to help me set everything up. I heard the car door shut from my house, so I went to the door to unlock it for her. As she gets out of her car all I can think is: She is wearing Betsy's Blossoms!!

It was incredible how similar it looked. Take a look for yourself: (This is an up close picture of the sweater Carol was wearing!)

Isn't that unreal? My daughter even asked if we had stamped on Carol's sweater! The ladies from Club even mentioned to Carol " You are wearing the Stamp Set!"

Not only was I tickled to death seeing Betsy's Blossoms in clothing form, I also just couldn't get over how much I loved the color combination. As I continued to look at her sweater I started to match the colors on the fabric to Stampin' colors. I was able to match it almost perfectly with Pacific Point, Tempting Turquoise, Not Quite Navy, and Summer Starfruit.

I made a small sample (which Carol is holding below) to make sure it matched- and we succeeded!

I loved the design and just knew that I had to make a card out of it! Take a look:

What do you think?   Isn't it amazing that you can get stamping inspiration from anywhere??  So be on the look out for fun patterns and color combinations when you're out and about!

Happy stamping and creating!


  1. What a cute idea to match the colors to her sweater! That turned out great!

    1. Thanks Kari! Wasn't convention a blast? I had a fun time wearing the Betsy's Blossoms sweater. I just wished I could have shown it to Shelly but didn't get a chance to. Thanks for your sweet comments!
