A little bit of this....with Courtney Baker

There are so many Glitz products that I love, that I honestly didn't know where to turn for my first time to post of the Glitz blog. I decided that rather than spending hours weeding through all the things I love, I'd go with the first two inspiration pieces. It's funny because my two inspirations resulted in two completely different styles of cards. I just love when products can push your creativity!

The first card all started with Maya Floral from the Maya collection. The paper is just gorgeous. I used one of the flowers from the patterned paper to create my focal point:
Patterned Paper: Maya Floral, Maya Navy (Glitz Design)
Rhinestones: Pink Frosting (Glitz Design)
Stamp: I'm Feeling (Glitz Design)
Ribbon: Navy (Offray)
Ink: Viridian Leaf (Palette)
Thread: White (Coats & Clarks)
I love that little "I'm Feeling" stamp. I stamped off once to give it a little "worn" effect.

On my second card, I went with one of my favorite color schemes...  neutral! These vintage Whatnots, are SOOO cute and perfect for card marking.
And don't you love when this don't go the way you planned, but you end up loving it? Do you see the stitching on the top right? Well that was not suppose to end. My thread in my bobbin however did end. Once I realized I was no longer sewing... I realized I liked the effect on this vintage card.

Patterned Paper: Vintage Love Polka (Glitz Design)
Accesories: Vintage Whatnots (Glitz Design)
Ribbon: Netting (May Arts); Black Crepe Paper
Thread: Coats & Clark
Do you have a project that didn't turn out the way you planned, but you ended up liking it better?
