I was so lucky to have Della of I Brake for Stamps contact me about designing with her stamps and she generously let me pick out a few to test ride. And I have to tell you that I'm buyin'! This stamp is called Footprints in the Sand. I just love the mix of fonts and the crisp stamp lines. I'll definitely be using this one again! (And if you like this stamp and want to shop in her store, you'll get a 10% discount by using this coupon code: SAVE10ANDREA)
I was also lucky enough to be contacted by Linda from Creative Harmony and she was so kind as to send me some of her homemade stick pins....can you believe this pin?! It's absolutely gorgeous! She asked that in exchange for this act of kindness that I pay it forward. And I certainly will!
There's a lot going on with this card, I did some mixing and matching of Spellbinders to come up with a custom frame around the sentiment. The outside black flourishes are from the Fleur De Lis Motif's collection. I die cut 4 of the linear designs and attached them to the back of a Scalloped Square design. I then layered a Labels 3 (on dimensionals) on top of that. I sponged the inside with Antique Linen Distress ink and added some Platinum Liquid Pearls. The floral focal accent consists of Graphite Vintage Seam Binding and a Prima Tattered Treasures flower, both from the Ribbon Carousel store. Then I tucked an Elegant Scrollwork diecut underneath that. Berneath the main focal panel is a piece of Natural Burlap, cut up and frayed a bit and that is also from the Ribbon Carousel. (Corinna has a sale going on right now until the end of April with a coupon for 15% off with the potential for free shipping.) A little paper piercing and sewn edges finish off the card.
Thanks for stopping by today, I surely appreciate the visit!
