Etsy Inspired Challenge #68

Welcome to the Etsy Inspired Challenge #68! This week’s inspiration shop is the Gypsy Rose Handbags shop. There is so much to be seen here! Here are my inspirations this week:

I decided to pick up on the flourish and houndstooth patterns while using the bright colors of the middle bag!
I cut this butterfly out with my Slice and heat embossed the patterns from the bags onto the butterflies and then layered them over each other with foam adhesive. I slightly curved the edges of the butterflies to give it some dimension.
I just love that Blue Skies patterned paper on the bottom. It is just so sweet!

I hope you will come play along with us this week at Etsy Inspired! Here is the prize:
Everyday Adorable stamp set by Unity! Such a cool prize!

Here is what you need to do to play along:
– Visit Gypsy Rose Handbags shop and find an item that inspires you
– Create a project of your own
– Post a link to your project on this post by Friday, January 1st at noon PST.

I so look forward to seeing your fun creations! Also, check out the design team links on the right hand side for more inspiration. This is also my last week as a guest designer for Etsy Inspired. I had such a blast. Thank you so much, Etsy Inspired gals, for inviting me along! I look forward to playing along in more Etsy Inspired challenges!

Also, I hope you all are having wonderful holidays. I have had a great Christmas with my family here in Chicago. I still have a few more days to enjoy the beautiful snow, then it’s back to California to celebrate the New Year! I absolutely love New Year’s Eve. Cubans have a lot of fun (aka funny) traditions! I will tell you all about them when we get closer!

Lots of hugs to my crafty pals! I am so thankful for all of you!
