Hello and thanks for stopping by today! For the April Be Inspired Blog Hop we are creating projects with our favorite stamp sets. I have chosen to use one of my new favorites… Love What You Do stamp set paired with the incredible patterned paper of Share What You Love DSP. Since we are on the subject of favorites, I’d also like to share one of my favorite films. Music is a big part of my life and a film with an amazing soundtrack gets me every time. The Wind Rises fits both of these and I am in fact listening to the soundtrack as I write this post! If you have this soundtrack, tune in on track #7 “the lifesaver”. The clicks of the woodwinds are what attracts me in particular to this piece but the overall soundtrack in it’s entirety is amazing.

Share What You Love DSP: fussy cut florals
Love What You Do stamp set
Sometimes all it takes is one little flower to inspire a project. I am inspired to feature and fussy cut these pretty little florals and let them really take the focal point. Stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, I stamped the sentiment on a circle die cut and adhered the fussy cut florals with Mini Glue Dots. They are my #1 go-to in combination with fussy cutting. Looking closely at the area surrounding the stem and you will see yellow and green flicks from the Blends markers to add contrast.
Fussy cutting the stamped image was not a problem with this tip:
When trying to fussy cut in a vey small area, leave an equal area of space around that part of the image and fill it in with the same color as the inside of the image. I cut down close to the printed line but left enough paper to allow the image to be stable. Once the green color was added, it is not apparent that there is more paper surrounding the image in these areas.
Please be sure to visit all of the beautiful blogs for loads of creative inspiration!
