Happy Mama's Day - My Creative Time Inspire Me Wednesday

Hi everyone!
It's Inspire Me Wednesday over at the MCT's blog.
My inspiration for today's project came from a video by Dawn from Wplus9 Design.
She created an Inlaid Balloon card, you can watch her video here.

It's such a cool technique, kind of like a puzzle and I love how you can see both the outer and inner stitching of the die cuts when you use this technique.  Basically you are cutting out on your background paper coloring and putting your cuts back in.  Definitely watch Dawn's video!!

Here's a closer look, the flowers, clouds and grass are all cutout colored and put back in, just the label with sentiment, button and butterfly are not inlaid.  The stems and leaves are all stamped, just added some dots with marker, really enjoyed putting this card together!

  1. OMG Miss Brigit your card is so beautiful. Love how you've used all of Miss Emma's goodies. You definitely did one super outstanding creative job and the colors are so pretty and love your cutie patootie scene thanks now for your inspiration!! YOU so ROCK!!

  2. Wow, this sure is one pretty card! I really liked what you have done here with the inlaid look. So much so that I priced what it would cost me to get the supplies to make one. I don't have any of the dies/stamps you've shown. It'd cost over $125! Darn. Oh well, guess I can admire your version and keep this technique in mind for future purchases. Great job on the card. :)

  3. Gorgeous! I love doing inlaid dies, and yours is so pretty with the flowers!!!

  4. This is amazing,Brigit!! What a beautiful card! Love the inlay die cutting!

  5. I like Dawn's idea using the tape to hold the pieces. Your flower card is beautiful and I also like the stitching. Great job!
