I finally found some time for crafting; for a long time I had been drooling over the beautiful cards and projects created with the Stempelglede stamps, so yesterday when some time crafting time opened up, I knew exactly what I wanted to play with….
I have a friend who has just quit her job after having been with the same company for 14 years, so I found the ideal sentiment on the “Follow your Heart” stamp set.
I’ve used papers from three different Maja Design collections on this card, but the prominent piece with the heart pattern is “Let’s share a cookie” from the latest collection, “Coffee in the Arbour”. In the middle part, I’ve used the shabby chic Lace “Amélie”, and on the bottom the brand new gorgeous crocheted pearl lace.
I placed the sentiment on a piece of brown corrugated paper, which I embossed with “Shabby White”. Then there are lots of flowers…on the left hand side from Wild Orchid Crafts: roses, one lily, one carnation and some frosted berries. On the left hand side from Kort og Godt: white hortensias and two pretty pink curly roses.
Everyone who knows me knows that I have somewhat of an obsession with heart embellishments, LOL. The Shabby Wood Heart Buttons are new arrivals, as is the Bling Heart.
Of course I went for the shabby style; the beautiful shabby chic brads from Graphic 45 were covered in gesso, as were all the flowers. I also painted the cheese cloth and here & there on the card with gesso. Here’s a close up of the beautiful heart charm with a butterfly in it:
This is what the inside looks like:
As you can see, the text strips are clearly inspired by former LLC DT Member Elin. The sentiment stamped onto the Melissa Frances Lace Paper Doily is from Tim Holtz and the postmark stamps from Magnolia.
Thanks for stopping by.
