Friends

In the Splitcoast Stampers General Stamping Talk Forum, this card was chosen as a favorite for the week ending July 1, 2012 (post #64)!

Here is another DT inspiration project that I created last evening for the current Blockheads Paper Arts Challenge - Textured Paper with Embossing Folders Technique Blog Hop!

Visit the Blockheads Emboss Paper Technique page to see Leigh's tutorial for creating awesome backgrounds using TP and an embossing folder!

For my "Friends" note card, I used the Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder with the TP for the background and sponged lilac and green Martha Stewart inks onto the flowers and stems/leaves and lightly around the surrounding areas. I used the beautiful "Friends" sentiment from the Blockheads Verses-Special Delivery stamp set, stamped in Memento Bamboo Leaves ink, cut with a Spellbinders Classic Ovals die and matted on a SB Scalloped Oval die cut. I cut a large butterfly with a die from the SB Fanciful Flight set and matted it on handmade paper so the wings look like they have veins. I added some antennae, bling on her abdomen, a butterfly trail, an organza bow and some pearls. I left the inside blank to write my own note.

Recipe:
  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury white cardstock; purple and green cardstock
  • Handmade purple paper
  • Charmin
  • Blockheads Verses-Special Delivery stamp set
  • Memento Bamboo Leaves ink 
  • Martha Stewart lilac and stem green inks
  • Spellbinders Classic Ovals, Scalloped Ovals and Fanciful Flight dies
  • Want2Scrap white pearl swirl flourish
  • White organza ribbon; tiny green flat-back pearls; purple gemstones; green shimmer brad


I have one more DT inspiration project for this technique challenge to share with you, all created with TP embossing folders, and Blockheads stamps, coming up shortly!

Thanks so much for stopping by - see you next time!
Hugs,
Leslie
