Shopping for inspiration- the holiday edition

Hello lovelies!

I am on the Neat and Tangled blog today sharing a holiday card inspired by my latest round of errands. It's no secret that I love shopping for inspiration when I am out and about, and I am popping in today to share a card I made inspired by holiday decorations at (my favorite store, like, ever) Target!

Last weekend, I was picking up the items on my Target list and somewhere between the kids clothes and shoes departments I looked up and saw this.

Those colors, the circles, the shine!  I was inspired!  I snapped a picture with my iphone trying not to look too conspicuous.  When I returned home, I pulled out some of my Neat & Tangled stamps to make a card based on this Target decor, and here's what I created... 

I stamped Sunburst with green ink on green cardstock and punched out the center of the image with my circle punch.  Party Dots was stamped with gold ink, and I punched a couple of small circles from the larger stamped image.


The stars from Merry and Bright accent the red circles and the sentiment is from Simple Christmas. A few circles punched from bronze shimmer cardstock added some depth and shine.

I think this card is pretty on Target with the inspiration (pun intended), and it's flat for easy mailing!  Next time you are out and about in all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, don't forget to look around. Your next spark of inspiration could be hanging from the ceiling!

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Love how Target inspired you! Your Christmas card is so festive and lovely! Beautifully done!

  4. I went to our new Target in my area (Target stores are new here in Canada), they don't have gorgeous displays like you do (Wahhh!). I was feeling I bought a copy of Card Creation For Him instead.

  5. LOVE how you were inspired!!! Thank goodness for Target!!


Your thoughts mean so much to me. Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you stopped by!
