Love... 31

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 21, 2010 @ 6:45 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Last week, I was away at the Spellbinders Retreat - Oh my gosh! It was an amazing experience! I met the entire Spellbinders crew & DT. Everyone was so friendly & kind. We learned so many new techniques & brushed up on some familiar ones. I am looking forward to sharing my Spellbinders journey with all of you :)

Awhile back in January, Beate at SCS asked me to write a tutorial on how to make a tissue paper flower for SCS!!! Oh my gosh - Of course - I was more than honored & happy to! Please visit SCS HERE to view the tutorial & feel free to let me know what you think :)

I made this Love card showcasing the tissue paper flower featured in the tutorial.

The fun polka dotted ornate frame image that you see here behind the tissue paper flower is one of many amazing stamps from the Gina K. Designs Lovely Labels set.

The set is full of several different images that fit perfectly with various Spellbinders dies! A match made in my stamping Heaven :)

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to create the uppermost layer, a scrap of DP from K&Company for the middle layer & a snippit from the Vintage Valentine DP for the bottom layer. To give the tissue paper flower an aged/distressed look, I used a sponge dauber to apply Ranger Vintage Photo ink.

That is all I have for today - Thanks for looking! Be Sweet!

Stamps: Gina K. Designs Lovely Labels

Paper: tissue paper, K&Company DP, white & aqua cs,

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Ranger Vintage Photo

Other: Spellbinders# S4-233 Labels Nine, # S4-190 Labels Four, # S4-136 Classic Heart, # S4-137 Classic Scalloped Heart, # S4-109 Flower Creations Three, Offray ribbon, Making Memories hardware, EK Success border punch
