CARDS GALORE... inspiration!

My first post today will be my DT project for Cards Galore what inspires you??
I had to think really hard for this as being a crafter there are some many people, styles and techniques that I love I do find this very difficult...
I decided in the end that I would have to go with...

Co-founder of Stampin' Up! and one of my many obsessions/ passions and loves of the crafting world...
I have loved all things Stampin' Up! for about 5 years and this was way before I became a Stampin' Up! demo... I love the way that the ink, card, DSP and accessories all co-ordinate and everything that in the range matches and ties in together and from the offset this is something that Shelli wanted - little did she know that that so many crafty men and women would wait with bated breath for the new catalogue or latest offer!...
So my project is using one of my newest stamp sets and one that is in keeping with Shelli's style - kind of shabby chic!

and I hope that my project does it justice...
I have decorated a frame and candle, covered a notebook and made a card... As stated earlier I have tried to make this shabby chic in style and show how versatile the Stampin' Up! stamp sets are and how everything matches (I do love everything to match!) 
One thing that people often say to me is that I have an eye for colour... and the way that elements to a card/ project co-ordinate.

I have used the stampset elegant eleanor and have used the colour combination of pumpkin pie and old olive... I love these colours together and as always the brads that I have used on the card and the notebook... matching the ink, card stock and DSP...
I have used tissue paper and a heat gun for the candle... raised the flowers on the frame using silicone. For the card I have distressed the edges with a cutter tool and I have inked all the edges of the panels that I have included...
