Just Plain FUN!!
I am so excited to share this card with you today. You see, I made this card just for pure fun; not for any DT commitments. I've always loved the Waltzingmouse Vinage Labels Frames and even own a few. But, because it takes me an inordinate amount of time to make a card, I rarely have the energy or creative juices left to make more than a few cards a week. Therefore, I stick mainly to my DT obligations.
I also LOVE Verve's Plain Janes and think they fit fabulously in the Vintage Labels Frames. So, being inspired with the Vintage Labels 5 images from Waltzingmouse, and one of my newest toys, the Spellbinders Diamonds Nestabilites dies, I set off to work.
As soon as I saw Spellbinders' new Diamond dies, I knew I wanted to make this bg for a card. I just took three different patterns of the new dreamy Lost dp by My Mind's Eye and diecut about 10 diamonds each with the smallest diamond. I then ink distressed each with Worn Lipstick Ranger Distress Ink and started gluing them with miniscule space between each one.
After I created my background, I stamped the Vintage Labels 5 image onto another pattern of the Lost dp with Brushed Corduroy Ranger Distress Ink and added one of my favorite Verve Plain Jane Sentiments, 1 Peter 5:7 "Cast all your Cares On Him for He cares for you." I stamped the sentiment with Walnut Stain Ranger Distress Ink.
Finally, I added a Martha Stewart Quilted Edge punched border, a lacy ruffle, some Zva Creative Pearls, some I~Rock crystals, Seam Binding Ribbon, and a Webster's Pages Vintage Sparkler.
The Waltzingmouse image is framed with the Labels 5 and the Curved Rectangle dies and is ink distressed with Antique Linen Ranger Distress Ink.
That's it for today folks. If you click on any of the colored words, it will take you to where you can find the products I used.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a super weekend!!
