TCP Tuesday - Inspiration Challenge




Hi all! It's my turn to host TCP Tuesday, and this week I have an Inspiration Challenge for you. The challenge is to make a card (or any other project!) using the photo on the left as your inspiration. Aren't those glasses pretty? I found them at the Museum of Modern Arts website. I hope you can play along! Here are the details...

1. Add a link to your creation in the comments for this post. You can post up until midnight this coming Saturday, May 2nd.
2. If you're posting to the gallery at Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES56 so that we can find your piece!
3. TCP stamps are not required, but are of course encouraged :)
4. All of the cards will be featured in Alma's "Holey Moley Monday!" slideshow!
5. Each month, Alma will select the "Swanky Stamper" for that month. The Swanky Stamper will receive $25 in Cat Cash to spend on the TCP site, and the winning creation will be featured on the TCP site for the following month :)

For my card I used the design of the glass as inspiration. I used white for the top of my card, and then pink and green for the rest. I also did some paper piecing for the flowerpot and the heart. The stamp I used is one of my favorite TCP images; it's called "Budding Baby", and the sentiment is "Welcome Little One" :) So...what are you waiting for?? Have fun! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
ETA: the border punch I used is Fiskars' "Effervescence" Border Punch :)

I was originally thinking of a sweet new baby card with this pastel color combo (and after taking into consideration my super small TCP collection), but here's what I came up with instead... Thanks for the challenge!

Toni, this is a GREAT inspiration piece - full of lots of possibilities from the designs on the glasses - totally FUN!

Your card is ADORABLE! Really like the layout and that border punch is yummy - but my fav is how you framed that cute image, NICE!!!

Here is my take on this challenge! (thanks!)
