Mariposa Mini Sneak Peek

I have been working on a DCWV Mariposa mini off and on all summer long.  This is just a little preview of what's to come. I hope to show you the entire mini within a few weeks. The butterfly is a stamped image that I colored with copic markers.

The black photo mat has been embossed with gold embossing Powder using Scrolls Work Stamps 2544, Leafy Swirls. The Butterfly is also from them. Look for 3082, Monarch Wings.
I still have a couple of pages, the back cover and a bunch of tags to finish before I show you a video. I just couldn't hold it any longer. I just had to show someone. This paper is so wonderful to work with and it makes the most beautiful projects!I am thinking about making a couple of kits available to make this particular book. If you are interested, let me know.  Enjoy!

Irish Blessing

Today I have a vintage style card that is simple and quick! All stamps were from Scrolls Work Stamps.  They have so many vintage stamps that they are my go to source. This is also why I wanted to be on their design team! If you would like to be on the design team, go on over to their web site and apply.  They are taking applications. 
This is how I made the card.
 Take a piece of Kraft card stock and stamp the Leafy Flourish several times with SU! Garden Green ink and sponge the edge of the card stock and set aside.
 Take white card stock and stamp 2527 Gothic arch with Stazon Saddle Brown ink. 
Ink 1604, Irish Blessing with SU! Garden Green ink and stamp after lining it up with the Gothic Arch. 
Cut out this piece and sponge Tea Dye Distress ink all over it.
Again take white card stock and stamp2542, Gothic Medallion in the same way the arch was stamped.
Quickly add a similar color marker to highlight a few areas on the medallion and the arch.
Cut a strip of designer paper and place it behind the Irish Blessing after sponging the edges.
Add the Blessing to this strip and the Medallion.
Pop the medallion up with pop dots to add dimension.
Mount all of this on the Kraft card stock.
Cut a piece of SU! Garden Green card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.
Score this in the middle and fold in half.
Us a border punch down the edge and sponge this edge with  SU! Garden Green ink.
Add the Kraft card stock and Voila!  You are finished!

August Birthday 2010

Hello all! I don't know about you but out weather has been hot and muggy the past few days.  So much so that when I walked outside yesterday. My glasses fogged up! That is a new one for me on a summer day since I started wearing glasses.  I had no idea that would happen. Anyway, I have my August birthday cards finished. I used stamps from Scrolls Work.  The letter M came from the Scrabble-a-bet set #1457. The birthday sentiment came from Person Holidays #1601 and the frame is called Mirror Mirror #2560. The embossing folder is one of the Tim Holtz alterations texture fades pack called Damask and Regal Flourish. If you have any questions about this project, please contact me.  Enjoy!
