Etsy Inspired Challenge #70 - I {heart} You

Hi everyone! We're back to Saturday again, which means there's a new EtsyInspired Challenge. :)

The Etsy store we're using as inspiration this week is Skylar's Candy Clips, and they feature tons of really cute and colorful hair accessories for girls. I chose two of the flowers in the picture below, and used the flower colors and shapes on my card.

I have a Slice machine, which doesn't get as much use as it should, and I was so psyched when I found I could closely replicate the flowers used for the hair clips... How fun is that?! :) The sponsor this week is the PaperTemptress, and they specialize in all types of paper... I'm not sure if it's easy to tell in the photo or not (since the sun was shining so brightly), but the orange, pink and purple papers I used are metallic, and they have such a lovely shimmer!

There are two different prizes this week... One from the sponsor, and one from the featured Etsy store. To be entered for a chance to win one of the prizes, all you have to do is create a card using one of the items from the Skylar Candy Clips shop as inspiration, and link back to the EtsyInspired blog by Friday, January 15th. (Please click the EtsyInspired link for more info.)


  • Trim blue CS to 6" x 7", score at 3 1/2" and fold in half to create your card base.
  • Stamp the card base with white polka dots.
  • Using a Slice machine (or punches), create five flowers (three of one, and two of another).
  • Assemble flowers using pop dots, and add faux white stitching to the petals.
  • Embellish flowers with rhinestones and rub-ons.
  • Cut a strip of green CS to 1/2" x 6" and snip little blades of grass.
  • Cut strips and pieces of green CS for flower stems and leaves.
  • Arrange all the flower parts to your liking and adhere them to the card base with adhesive and pop dots.
  • Adhere grass to card base and scrunch it to give it some interest.
