EtsyInspired #71 ~ Amethyst Soap

This week's EtsyInspired shop is Amethyst Soap. And WOW! These soaps are really something spectacular. I've never seen anything like them before. These are SOAPS! Can you believe it? I mean, seriously, they are so pretty that I'm not sure if I could bring myself to use them. But beyond the looks, some of this soap is actually really functional. There's a complexion bar that designed for people that have acne and other skin irritation. There's a pomegranite bar made from REAL pomegranite. This shop even has a "great eight" unique oil blend that is magical for the skin. Not only that but they GUARANTEE that you'll love it or you get your money back. Not many stores off that kind of deal.

This week, Amethyst Soaps is offering their The Trio (Small) Turquoise Soap as a prize. How do you win? Just pick any item in the Amethyst Soap shop to be inspired by and make any creation that you wish. Link your creation back to the EtsyInspired #71 post on the EtsyInspired blog by next Friday Jan 22nd, noon Pacific time to be entered into a drawing to win. Please make sure you credit the shop where you got your inspiration and this challenge to be eligible to enter. If you upload to SCS or PCP, please use keyword EIC71.

As if all that wasn't enough, this week, we also have an awesome sponsor! The Cutting Cafe! They offer all sorts of amazing digi crafting things! From background papers you can print to digi stamps to cutting files. They have an awesome assortment of things! You have to go check them out! Especially if you want some extra WOW factor for your cards! The Cutting Cafe also donated some items to the DT to work with so you can get a glimpse of what kind of awesome stuff they have.



Here is my card for this week. I was inspired by these beautiful Sweethearts soaps. I used the Small Hearts Backgrounds from the Cutting Cafe. I wish I could have showcased it better but I am out of color ink for my printer. But I thought this was a nice way to make a masculine card. The stamped image is Ippity from the Because of You set (available in my sidebar.)
