Faux Flower - Thank You Card

I take a weekly vacation to Splitcoaststampers website - love their resource link.  The technique I tried this week was Faux Flowers.  I've had some flower embellishments for while now and really wanted to make a card using more than one without it looking gaudy.  This worked perfectly!  Stamp an image with flowers or vines, pick out or punch your favorite flower embellishments, add designer paper, dry emboss all of it together.   I used a Sizzix folder through my machine, then added pearls on the middle of the flower.  Fun and easy :)

Up, Up and away!

Lately I've been cleaning out my stamp "accessories."  Aka -scrap paper.  I have drawer full of it and I can't see parting with a good scrap. I admit it, I hord paper. :) Well SVG Cuts has a adorable hot air balloon file.  My scrap paper drawer came in handy.  To go along with my fabric themes, I cut out the green background of the balloon with fabric on my Cricut.  You really can't tell it's fabric but if you touch it it's just as soft as a real hot air balloon floating by.
Shimmer effect - Pearls Powder, and background is Encaustic.

Stamping On Fabric

 Have you ever been at a store and a sale item was just too good to pass up?  Well, that was me. I bought fabric I didn't need but it was so cheap I thought maybe I could use it down the road.  Then a light bulb went off I had the perfect project in mind. It resembled a pair a jeans, so I inked up my stamps and a cute fabric pocket formed! :)  This card was made with Stampin Up Pocket Fun, flower & enjoy stickers, various background paper, and button brads to complete the look.

Acetate Stamping

Stamping with Acetate.  My translation, fancy way of saying - over head projector sheets. :) Lots of fun and easy to do.

 I dressed up a cute little address book my Stampin Up Demo gave me. Added glitter and rub on decorations.  If you would like to learn more about acetate check out look under resource you'll find the best tutorials and videos around. :)
