From Kleenex Box to Card...

Yeah, sometimes us papercrafters find inspiration in the oddest places.... like this Kleenex box, for example:

(Ok, so it's Puffs, not Kleenex.  Whatever!)
As soon as I saw it, I automatically started thinking of PTI's Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores & Simply Chartreuse, paired with their Turning a New Leaf stamp set & coordinating Die set, and after an hour, this is what came out of it:

Cardstock:  PTI Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse
Patterned Paper:  PTI 2008 Bitty Dot Basics
Stamps:  PTI Turning a New Leaf, Damask Designs
Ink:  PTI Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, Simply Chartreuse, Fresh Snow
Dies:  PTI Double-Ended Banners, Beautiful Blooms II - Collection #1, Turning a New Leaf, Mega Mat Stack 4
Other:  PTI Simply Chartreuse Vintage Button, 1/8" Silk Ribbon

Fun; one of those cards that just makes me smile!  What you can't really tell from the picture is how some of  the die-cut leaves are popped up for some dimension... looks pretty fun in real life, I think.   Where have you been finding your inspiration lately?  Leave me a link in the comments if you've got an oddly-inspired creation to share!

Cute... not that I'm biased or anything... (ha!)


  1. Hey, Steph! I found you from the forum, and have to say I love this card! It really looks like the box of tissues! I have bought some kleenex boxes because I liked the pattern so well, but never made a card from that inspiration...thinking I'll have to give that a try! Thanks for sharing and the inspiration!

  2. Oh my, Congrats on the new baby, hope everything is okay with the birth. That card is such a clever idea, I think I should buy a couple of kleenex boxes too. I am new to blogging and scrapping and I'm having a ton of fum finding new blogs along the way.I will be your follower, come check out my site and become my follower too. Hugs and God bless!
