It's a peaceful, quiet Sunday, and it's about time I posted again, yes? I refuse to bore you with details as to why it's been so long. We will simply move on. With any luck today, I will have some uninterrupted time to actually get ahead of the game a little.
Since my last post, I have
become a new member of the Memory Box Outside the Box Design Team. I am so honored and
excited about this opportunity. Below is my first post for Memory Box,
and I hope to inspire my viewers with their wonderful dies, stencils and
stamps. There will also be some classes within the next month or so at
Ultimate Hobbies sometime after they move to their new location. I will keep
you posted on that.
So here is my card featuring
the Long Stem Lavender die. This is one of the cards we will be creating at our
next Memory Box class at Ultimate Hobbies.
I cut two sets of the Long Stem Lavender die, and one extra
stem to add some curly filler. The flowers were sponged with Brushed Corduroy
Distress Ink and enhanced with Wink of Stella glitter brush before being
adhered to the stems. I cut two of the Lenora Bloom in two shades of green,
and snipped off everything above the leaves. After sponging Shabby
Shutter Distress Ink on the leaves, I arranged them as shown around the bottom
of the lavender stems.
I love the Open Studio Rectangle Layers sooo much!
I cut one of the layers, spattered with lavender ink, and added a sheer length
of ribbon before adding the lavender and leaves. I created a banner using
the “Wishing You a Happy Day” stamp, curved
the banner a bit and then added it to the layered piece as well. I
adhered the assembled layer to the card front, and added some gem stones to
Thanks for stopping by, and there will be more to come!
