Stampin’ Up! Australia - Stampin’ Up! Beautiful Ride - Volkswagen Beetle stamp


The inspiration image at The Card Concept's this week is a beautiful image of a marshmallow heart floating in a gorgeous mug of hot chocolate!

I was inspired by the heart theme as well as the warm-ness of the chocolate so I thought I would combine the red and kraft colours. I couldn’t wait to colour in my new ‘Beautiful Ride’ Volkswagen Beetle stamp! It is in the new Occasions catalogue - squeeeee!

It also happens to be my husband’s parents’ 47th wedding anniversary and I thought this would make a cute card.

I coloured my ‘bug’ with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities...remember them!? I chose Shimmer White card stock so the bug is cool and shimmery.

The patterned paper is a retired paper stack called “Stacked with Love”....so cute for Anniversary and Valentine cards.

Here's the inspiration image.....
