The card above was inspired by Lynn McAuley at Confessions Of A Left-Brained Stamper. I was so excited when I pulled the jpg as an inspiration because Lynn had her name on it so I could find her blog. Do you think I could find the card~!!!!!! Nooooooooo~ So Lynn, if you see this let me know where I saw your card!! :-)
A very simple card. One piece of paper for the quilt look is hoarded leftovers. It is called Italian Venetian and is has gold filigree here and there in the leaves and blossoms. The other is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb. cardstock. The pieces were punched with a 1 3/8" Paper Shaper punch and mounted to a piece of the Neenah White.
The flourish, from Flourishes Siberian Iris, was stamped on the Neenah white cardstock with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The pearls are from Oriental Trading Company and they are not sticky and were mounted with Glossy Accents. The green is Twinkling H2O Moss Green.
A Dark Brown Sharpie and a ruler were used for the Faux Stitching. That was run through my Cuttlebug with their Victoria embossing folder. I pieced another piece of Neenah white so everything measured 4.0"X5.25". That was mounted to a piece of Curious Metallic Chocolate text weight.
Now the fun really began. I used my new PTI Flower Bloom #1 die set with the Italian Venetian paper as shown with my Cuttlebug. I used a stylus on a piece of stylus foam to give the petals dimension along with 3D 1/16" pop dots under each petal. The tips of the petals were rounded with the rod of a needle punch. The buttons are from my stash, as well as the gold thread. One button is crystal clear with a gold trim and the other is a pearl pink.
The tag is from Spellbinder Tag Trio and was saved from a past project. The sentiment is by Paper Salon and was embossed with Gold EP. I mounted it on the Italian Venetian paper, trimmed around it, and cut out the ribbon slots with an X-Acto knife. The dots are Stickles Cotton Candy. The ribbon is from Michaels. The stick pin and Czech bead are from my stash!.
I am off to do another card. I am down from 8 cards at a time to 2 and may get to 1. That should speed up my production rate............maybe!!! :-)
That's all for today and thanks for stopping by to look and say hi!!
