Stampbook Saturday

Hello There She Goes Friends!  It's Christine here again with a fun Stampbook Saturday for you...a chance to show you a scrapbooking project inspired by a card design.

Today I get to combine both creative loves in a card and scrapbook page.  Here is the pretty pair I made, a 12 x 12 page and a card.  

When our daughter turned fourteen in October and she got all dolled up that day for school, so that morning I took some pictures of she and her brothers.  She has this lovely purple dress, and we have a deep brown leather couch and green pillows so I knew that was where I wanted to head when it all started.   I always take my color cues from the pictures.   Which is fun because then you can get some interesting new color combos!

I began with the sweet card and the new ADORABLE set by Torico Wrapped in Joy,  and colored up this cutie to look a little bit like our daughter.  The purple dress on the stamp even has little ruffles like my daughter's dress too.  I used some pretty papers by SU! with the new In Colors (Pear Pizzazz and Concord Crush).  The same Beaded Nestability I used for the main shape, I used for the ruffles in the layers of the design.  

Then for the page I used a similar theme and feel...

The beaded nestability ruffles, the row of rose blossoms and the cute little girl as accent.  

So there you have it....a card and a scrapbook page inspired by it!  That was fun!  Hopefully you can take some inspiration from your cards to scrapbook pages, or vice versa!  It's a great way to jump start your creativity!
