Good morning friends, I can hardly wait for March 31 when we kick off Spellbinders Shipping Frenzy! I’m excited because I have a tutorial to share with you but I’m equally excited that you’ll have a chance to win die templates! Just be sure to stop by on March 31 to get your name in the drawing! In the mean time a feminine card to share today. Silhouettes and cameos are my favorite so I wanted to make a vintage feel card using Spellbinders Silhouette, it’s a classic! I’ve used Spellbinders Labels Thirty Six to place the silhouette and garland on and it is yet mounted on an accordian folded medallion. I skimmed through my stash of stamps and found a My Minds Eye set – Honey Happiness Stamps – and it had a fabulous sentiment that I thought would fit wonderfully! After stamping on Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG, I rimmed with gold pen to make it pop. I’m in love with the music paper…it’s been calling my name for a while so I’m tickled to use it in a project.
I have to gush a little bit about a recent find that made my heart sing! While shopping in Hobby Lobby I came across a stack of ‘aged’ paper tied in a bundle sitting in a random display – there were only one or two. I’m certain that it was meant to be a knick knack of some sort but when I fanned through the paper, it was absolutely delicious with aging on the edges of each piece. It came home with me to use on cards and such; I can’t wait to try to make flowers with it!! The top pages look like they’ve been tea dyed and the center pages are not pristine, they have some stains on them but it sure won’t bother me. It’s a wispy thin paper kind of like rice paper…I never really care if it’s acid free or not on things I use for cards – I’m sure this is not acid free. At any rate, I put a picture of the stack below. I used this paper in my pleating above and the Labels 36 layer. This Aged Hobby Lobby paper is 6″ x 9″ – I know it’s hard to tell in the picture.
