Sisters are Forever 64

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 13, 2011 @ 7:16 AM | , , ,

Hi there! Hope your having a great week so far! I have a little bit of exciting news to share ~ today, the Happy Birthday card that I made for my sweet friend, Sue Lelli is being featured on the Melissa Frances blog! Yipeeeee :) If you get a chance, please feel free to visit the Melissa Frances blog (click HERE) and if you would be so kind to wish Sue a Happy Birthday click HERE :)

Today, I am sharing a home decor piece that I made for my dearest sister Tina:
I loaded this bad boy up with a variety of my favorite papercrafting goodies! The stamped the gorgeous label from JustRite Vintage Floral Labels using a Labels Thirteen die template to cut the image then coated it with a layer of glitter, giving it a sweet sugary like appearance. I made the crepe paper flower and leaves using Melissa Frances Vintage crepe paper turning to Danielle Flanders awesome tutorial (click HERE). I have been saving this awesome crepe paper for embarrassing 6 months or so! It's so easy to work with because of it's thicker quality making it quite easy to create fabulous flowers. I think you will be seeing many more of these on my projects to come ;)
I stamped the Sisters are Forever sentiment from JustRite Forever Friends on a Tim Holtz ticket and adorned it with: a Melissa Frances Vintage scroll embellishment, a few buttons and a gorgeous foil heart made using a Nested Hearts die template featuring a Melissa Frances Vintage keyhole embellishment.
I stamped the My Friend sentiment from Vintage Floral Labels using a  die template to cut/emboss the image, adhered a Webster's Pages sparkler and a Maya Road stickpin.
For color inspiration, I referred to the JustRite Friday Challenge: Color and Inspiration. You could use one color or as many as you like from the photo shown in the color graphic. For some wonderful inspiration, visit the JustRite site to see what the DT has created.
That's all for today ~ thanks so much for visiting :) Be Sweet!
