Fleuriste Blessings

Greetings Blog Friends!!  I’ve been stamping away – I even have a card ready for tomorrow as I was able to carve out a chunk of time to sit down and create.  I’m in the middle of a couple of different things, but I set them aside because my mind kept going back to all the possibilities with this stamp.  So here’s the deal – this is a simple background stamp that I employed to do all the heavy lifting!!   This is one of the new JustRite Papercraft releases; it’s the Fleuriste Newsprint Background.  I can just see using bits and pieces of this background and instead of use it flat (this time) I decided to stamp twice and cut my second copy of the top part of the stamp with Spellbinders™ Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents – a perfect fit!!  I then backed my panel with Spellbinders™ Beaded Ovals and the wonderful scroll accent from Spellbinders™ Twisted Metal Tags and Accents.  I love how the background “makes” the card and there were lots of possibilities for dimension!

I smudged the edges of my main panel and die cut outs with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink for an aged appearance.

I used another tiny accent from the Twisted Metal Tags and Accents set and stamped the word Blessings from JustRite Papercrafts Vintage Rose Medallions set.  Lastly I laid in a swirl of Zva Creative Pearls which I colored a pale orchid with one of my copic markers.  Did I mention I love this stamp?  I have a box on my list with this one too :-)

    Now this card is interesting in that the eye is pulled this way and that by the background paper and the main panel and layers. It just goes on and on. Thanks for sharing the tip of using markers to make just the perfect color pearls. I love the ribbon colors soooo much. By the way I now am a proud owner of a Becca Bow Maker and find it is so much fun to make beautiful bows now! Sure did expand the size and type of bows I can use now!ReplyCancel

    Becca – Love this card and how you used the background stamp different ways. Also love the colors – on the seam binding – did you color it yourself or was it purchased that lovely shade? Looks like 2 different colors on the bow and ribbon but love it —ReplyCancel

    This is so pretty Becca! I’ve just ordered some more seambinding from Zipperstop but it’s so difficult to tell what the actual colours are like online! Please could you tell us what colours you are using as I would find this so helpful?
    Many thanks, Lynn.ReplyCancel

    Hi Becca, I just found your website about 2 weeks ago. I love your work, it’s beautiful!

    I only have been scrapbooking a short time, and I don’t have a die-cut machine. Can you tell me which machine you recommend, which one is the best to use?

    Thanks so much!

    My mind dwells in the land of confusion and panic as in —I need to make a card what will I do???ReplyCancel
