Just A Note 60

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, March 22, 2011 @ 12:48 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a terrific Tuesday and enjoying Spring! Maybe you are on Spring break enjoying the beach on some exotic island or perhaps, doing some Spring cleaning or maybe even planting some flowers? Whatever you may be doing, hope you are enjoying life :)
I stamped a label image designed by Nina Bracket from gina K. Lovely Labels Two using a combination of S4-301 Labels Sixteen and S4-116 Standard Circles SM die templates to cut/emboss a frame. For sketch inspiration, I played along with this week's Card Patterns Sketch 107. If you are looking for some fab inspiration, check out the site!
Once I had the frame all inked up, I adhered it to a gorgeous Crafty Secrets Vintage Image and stamped various postage images from Tattered Angels all over the pretty Prima polka dot patterned paper.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be Sweet :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: gina K. Lovely Labels Two, Tattered Angels
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® S4-301 Labels Sixteen, S4-116 Standard Circles SM, Petite Oval (discontinued), S4-242 Big Scalloped Borderabilities Petite, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: Prima Botanical, Crafty Secrets Vintage Image
Ribbon: Vanilla Bean Vintage Style Hand Dyed Crinkle Ribbon Courtesy of Kimberly @ My Craft Spot
