Good morning everyone! This week's EtsyInspired shop is Kimmieprout. This shop specializes in making polymer clay embellishments. The minute I saw her creations I was in love. The bright colors, simple patterns and designs worked together to instantly juice up my creativity! I think that her little button embellishments are one of the most adorable things that I've ever seen! Check out her studio Almost as much fun as drooling over her adorable designs, is using them as inspiration for designing. But just as fabulous is the fact that this week, Kimmieprout is giving one lucky challenge participant a $15 gift certificate and free shipping. (Gee, I would love that to be me, but hopefully it'll be you!

This week, we have an awesome sponsor, Pink Cat Studio. They are giving away 5 digi stamps!! Check them out here

Pink Cat Studio is all about offering fun and whimsical stamps to inspire your creativity. They have a huge selection of super cute digi and rubber stamps to choose from and they add more each week. Owner and artist Melissa started PCS in 2005 and over the years nothing has excited and inspired her more than to see your creations with her stamps. Melissa’s goal is to continue to delight & surprise you with her designs. Stop by the studio today and get in on the fun!

Now, on to my creation! I used one of her button assortments and paired it with paper from the Paper Crafts Go-To-Gals "Go To Sketches" Card making from Doodlebug Design. When I first saw the embellishments I was attracted by their bright colors, whimsical designs and fun patterns. I then looked to find paper that I had that embodied the original embellishments, and this kit was perfect. The hearts worked perfectly, and I created solid-colored embellies by applying a white Galaxy pen to the cardstock. I hope you enjoy!! The first image is Kimmiprout's Embellies that inspired me, and the next is mine!!

Now, go and take a look at the other designer's work and get inspired yourself!
