OLW 44 Marta’s Pinterest Inspires

Many thanks to Susan at Simplicity for introducing me to Marta’s fabulous pinboards.  Pinterest is a site where people catalog the things they love by “pinning” them on boards.  Susan directed us to Marta’s boards so that we could find inspiration for this week’s One Layer Wednesday challenge.

I chose two inspiring boards. I’m not sure if that is bending the rules, but it ended up working for me, which is more than I can say for some of my cardmaking lately!  I chose the  pictures below.

I created the whole card without stamping which was not my initial intention.  I wanted a funky font like the one on the mug so I scanned through the fonts on my computer and chose joehand2 which I printed onto white cardstock.  The white mug is beautiful as it is, but my card was lacking a little with just the words happy birthday so I created my own yarn wrap with markers.  This part was fun as I pulled out one Stampin’ Up marker after another and drew lines from bottom to top over the torn mask I had covering the words.  I ended up using 52 markers and did not repeat a single colour.

Check out the other nifty cards linked on Susan’s blog.


Computer Font: Joehand2
Inks: 52 Stampin’ Up Markers
