Hello and happy Friday everyone!
Today I'd like to share a couple cards I created using this gooooooorgeous inspiration.

Swoon. OK seriously, how much do you love this sweet little vintage kitchen? It's so perfect! Like some fabulous little 1950's doll house! Oh and just look at those colors...yum.
Obviously there are countless way to be inspired by that amazing kitchen. For this first card I took my inspiration from the colors and the overall fresh feel of the photo.

July Theme 1

I made several different kinds of flowers, inspired by the vase of flowers in this room, in different colors to create a bright frame for my sentiment. The chandelier was such a fun element in this kitchen and I added a Chip Art flourish painted green to mimic it's curves. I tried to capture a bit of the 50's vibe with the polka dots and houndstooth.

I used papers from a bunch of different collections to complete this card. Both the solid red and polka dots are from the Scandia Jul Collection. The blue is from the Material Girl collection, the green from Soul Food, and the yellow from Homespun Chic.
Here's where I really took the kitchen inspiration to heart. Though you can't see it in the picture, I just KNOW there is a sweet little teapot somewhere in that room, so I decided to make it.

July Theme 2

Yeah, I had FUN making this! Can't you just imagine this sitting on the counter somewhere just out of frame?

Again, I had a lot of fun mixing papers from different collections. To be honest, I was really impressed with how well papers from so many collections meshed. I even added a bit of gray stripe from Sweet Surrender.
My finishing touch was a computer generated sentiment.
So, how does this photo inspire you?
