As You Dream


Howdy, howdy!  Thanks for all the well wishes.  My knee is feeling better, not quite there but almost.  In the interim I sat in the studio this morning to make a card.  It started out being simple and took on a life of it’s own.  That’s the beauty of creating, right?  For this one I picked an excellent, inspiring sentiment from Quietfire Design called As You Dream.   I thought the sentiment was so pretty it could be used for a bride to congratulate on a pending marriage or even as a congrats afterward.  With different decor it could go to the lucky couple and with yet different decor it could go to the graduate. 

I stayed with two colors white and one sheet of double sided card stock from American Crafts.   My focal medallion begins with Spellbinders™ Labels Thirteen onto which I’ve layered Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Ovals LG and Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals SM.  I love the companion pieces that come with all the Spellbinders Pendants and on the upper side of the oval I used one of the companion pieces from Spellbinders™ In  Spades Pendant.  Along the bottom of the card I pieced together several of the companion pieces from Spellbinders™ Renaissance Hearts Pendant to make the border through which I threaded my ribbon.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Quietfire Design – As You Dream
Paper:   Neenah Solar Crest, American Crafts
Ink:  Colorbox Chalk Ink – Pastel Pink
Accessories:  Spellbinders™ In Spades Pendant, Spellbinders™ Renaissance Hearts Pendant, Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals SM, Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Rectangles SM, Spellbinders™ Big Scalloped Ovals LG, Spellbinders™ Labels Eleven, pearls, ribbon

    I thought I’d bookmarked your blog before only to discover that I hadn’t. It took me quite some time to find you again because I couldn’t for the life of me remember your name. I did however remember your face, “about Becca” and the beautiful cards I’d seen. Well, now that I’ve found you, I won’t lose you again. As soon as I’m done here, I’m going to become a follower. I can only dream of being as creative as you are. Maybe when I grow up!ReplyCancel
