Spreading Light

Hello there blog friends!! I’m not blogging from home today — I had every intention of getting this up earlier today but as luck would have it, I don’t have good internet availability today. No worries, I’ve had this card done for a day or two and wanted to get it up. Short and sweet, my inspiration was that I wanted to take Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five and make it into a frame with an offset oval. All went as planned except I had to flip my working sketch, that happens some times – I’ll try it the other way around another time :-).

Using Spellbinders™ Labels Twenty Five and Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals LG, I determined where I wanted to offset my frame opening and cut then smudged the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink . On the bottom of my shape I added three elements cut from Spellbinders™ Damask Accents and flared them before gluing. Using a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs called Spread Light, I stamped and embossed on the main panel then distressed edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress ink and attached it to my card base. This is a five wrap bow made on the Peg Bow Maker – just like a double or triple wrap but I wanted lots of loops so I boosted it up to five. For my final accent I accordian folded a 1″ x 12″ piece of cardstock, glued it down on a punched circle then added the filigree and pearl on top. This is another easy one that I’ll add to my “get a card done quick list” – in fact I have two variations on this that I’ll share in the coming month.

    Fantastic spring colours and is that orange round the edge, looks great. Going to have to work on my bows never quite look as good as yours. Loving labels 25 use it for the shape of my cards. Finishing touches are perfect.ReplyCancel

    I haven’t written in a while. My mom was diagnosed with cancer and I was going back and forth from my home to my parents home, about ( 140 mile round trip ) since the 8th of Feb. She passed away the begining of March and now I am trying to play catch up with all that I had to leave undone. I finally got around to opening my Amazing Paper Grace e-mails and how nice it was to enjoy such beautiful inspiration. Thank you Becca for sharing the sunshine you share. God bless …….

    Love everything about this card! Truly amazing ~ everyone is different in its own way. I have a friend who makes very pretty cards but for some reason they all seem to look alike. Each one of your has its own diversiveness. (sp) I look forward to everyday and what you will have created. I only wish I had all the dies you have. TFS!!

    This is so lovely. I have been making some wall hanging frames lately using various quotes, and this would tie in just beautifully.ReplyCancel

    Beautiful card. You have such an amazing eye for color and mixing of colors. The label/oval makes such an eye appealing frame. TFS. Have a blessed Sunday.ReplyCancel

    so soft and beautiful, love the paper framing the great quote!ReplyCancel

  • Anne McIntoshMarch 25, 2012 - 7:20 am

    Another beauty from Becca! This is one I could manage with a minimum of frustration. Your layered cards are always beautiful, but when I try them at home, they always look overdone and messy. I guess I just haven’t gotten the knack yet (I’ll keep trying, though!). I have a birthday card to make for my niece today, so I’ll be CASEing later. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Have a blessed Sunday!ReplyCancel

    My husband did make me a peg bow maker from your first post as he is a woodworker as your husband was. He has built fixtures for my craft room. Pictures of it are posted on SCS. I am a person long on age and short on memory, so I refer to your tutorial again and again. Now they are gone so I would like to have the DVD that you sell with your bow maker if I may. Please tell me how to purchase it.

    The consistent mastery of your cards is amazing.It would help me a great deal if you would always state the size of each card posted.
    Thank you, I follow your blog every day.
