Dream a New Dream

Hi there!  I fell in love with this paper when I purchased it last week.  Doesn’t it just make you oohh?   It’s so dreamy and serene!   So I created a simple card keeping as much of the bird open as I could.  Believe me, that’s not an easy feat for me, really!!   I picked a new Quietfire Design sentiment called You Are Never Too Old to Set Another.  WIth that sentiment the occasion possibilities for the card grow — graduation, birthday, trip, new house, school . . . I could go on :-)   I added a border around the edge of the main card panel using Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Borderabilities Petite.  The sentiment is stamped on Spellbinders Labels Fourteen and I decorated the ribbon using an elegant little piece from Spellbinders Fanciful Holiday.   I finished up with some Zva Creative pearls ask a flourish underneath the bird.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:  Quietfire Design – You Are Never Too Old to Set Another
Paper:  Bazill, K&Co. – Susan Winget Nature
Ink:  Ancient Page – Calypso Blue
Accessories:  Spellbinders Fanciful Holidays, Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, Spellbinders, Spellbinders Fleur de LIs Boderabilities Petite, Ribbon, Zva Creative Pearls, The Paper Studio Brad

  • HarrietSeptember 3, 2010 - 11:51 am

    Becca, you make the most beautiful cards I’ve ever seen. I’ve been stamping a lo-o-o-ng time (20 years) and have seen LOTS of cards! Today’s card is especially gorgeous. Thank you for sharing it with us!
    I have a question–I haven’t used the pearls that are arranged in a pattern like the ones on this card. I’ve seen them packaged in designs like this, and have wondered how difficult they are to use. Are they adhered to a clear backing that you attach in one piece?ReplyCancel

  • SuziSeptember 3, 2010 - 11:57 am

    Your cards are not only beautiful, but inspiring and thought-provoking. You have a wonderful supply of sentiment stamps and use them so well. Love ’em!ReplyCancel

  • AlexandraSeptember 3, 2010 - 12:28 pm

    This is another beautiful card Becca. I love how you look at small detail dies and see so much more. The swirly decoration on the ribbon is so pretty. When I looked at the die it came from, well it was okay, but combined with your imagination it’s so much prettier, all layered up and finished with the pretty pearl button. I’m more inclined to buy this one now, after seeing what the Becca magic can do with this.
