Inspired by...

This week on the Hero Arts blogs, 5 fabulous stampers are being featured after being chosen by the HA artists for a "Day on the Blog". The challenge that went along with it was to create something that is inspired by these guest bloggers.

First off there was Kelly Booth, she was paired up with Sally Traidman. Kelly has put her own trademark on using owls on her fabulous cards. I took my inspiration from this card here, for the layout- and added my own twist and style and came up with this:

Supplies: ClearDesign Asian Elements, Long Branch (Hero Arts), Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Prima flowers, gems, Copic markers

I also was inspired by this one that she created for her day on the blog, I love how the stamped circle was spotlighted with the scalloped circle in the center matched the background.

Supplies: DesignBlock Birthday, ClearDesign Cupcakes (Hero Arts), Scalloped Circle Nestabilities (Spellbinders), Scallop border punch (Stampin' Up!), Gems, Buttons, Copic Markers

Next up on the blog was Sarah Moerman and Shari Carroll. She makes cards and scrapbook pages that I drool over.... She had this one in her photostream, which was perfect because i also needed a birthday card for my husband!

Supplies: DesignBlock Birthday, SparkleClear Live it Up, ClearDesign Birthday Messages (all Hero Arts), String, buttons, gems

Kryssi Ng was up next with Lisa Spangler- Her fabulous style is simple yet totally gorgeous! I used her "go to" colors of brown, aqua blue, & red (and of course a doll!)

Supplies: Four Dolls, All Occasion Messages, gems (all Hero Arts), felt lace (from Michaels, Recollections), Flower punches (EKSuccess), Scallop Border punch (Stampin' Up!), Copic Markers

Kiara Lee and Nancy Taylor were paired together on Thursday! Kiara has a simply elegant style with her cards, and I was inspired by this card here, I loved her combination of kraft paper and beautiful bright colored papers!

Supplies: Four Dolls, Thoughtful Messages (both Hero Arts), Paper flower (Making Memories), Scallop border punch (Stampin' Up!), Swiss Dots embossing folder (Cuttlebug-Provocraft), Gems, buttons, Copic Markers

Last but certainly not least, Deborah Nolan and Jennifer McGuire! All I can say when I saw Deborah's cards for the blog was AMAZING! If you missed it, check it out here. I used the sketch and color pallette she put together for this card:

Supplies: So Sweet (Hero Arts), Lemon Tart dots patterned paper (Lasting Impressions), Glossy Accents (Ranger Industries), Copic Markers
