Pinspired Challenge #4

We are back with our 4th Pinspired Challenge, and this is the inspiration piece that we are working with:
 Remember that anything goes!  Maybe you are inspired by the color scheme, the rustic feel, or the bold lettering.  We can't wait to see how this piece inspires you! Just make sure it is a new creation, and be sure to share our challenge #4 badge in your blog post in order to be eligible for the prize!

Sweet Stamp Shop is joining us again for this challenge as our sponsor!  They are offering the winner of this challenge a $10 gift certificate to their online store!  They have just released some new and unique sets, so be sure to check them out!

I used Sweet Stamp Shop's Across the Miles to create my card.  I  stamped the U. S. stamp twice. Cut out one and kept it whole, and then I cut random states from the second one.  On the individual states, I stamped different phrases from the set and them adhered them with foam to the larger piece.  I used several distress inks by Tim Holtz to create the back ground and ink the edges of the states.  The blue spray is by Maya Road.  I added the hearts to mimic the triangles from the inspiration piece, and then used the large adhesive letters by Basic Grey to create a bold sentiment. 

We hope that you will join us for this challenge!  For all the details, and to see what the other design team members created, head on over to the Pinspired Challenge blog!

I used the Old School Rock set from Sweet Stamp Shop to create this fun valentine:
I love the cassette tape!  It is so cute and (gasp) retro!  Does anyone know where the sentiment came from?  Yep, it's from High School Musical.  I am a sucker for Disney Channel Movies!
