ID: MC Feb/16 - Tim Feb - ECD Hello - Heirloom Roses - Do What Makes You Happy  card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: February 7, 2016

This is a single layer card with lots of embellies... and my favorite roses die by Die-Namics

One of the NEWEST "A Way With Words" dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs ("Hello"), designed by Suzanne Cannon (also available HERE). 

I'm also using a couple sentiment and design element  stamps from Quietfire Design  as well as a butterfly from the Silhouette onLine store "Butterfly Circle Frame"

("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set);  ("Love Lives Here"); ("The Woods Would Be Very Silent" 5pce set);


I scored and folded my white card. 

Created a mask/stencil with Spellbinders Classic Ovals large. Used the mask and stamped the text background (Heidi Swap "Piano Forte") using Distress "Pumice Stone". Sponged around the edges with "Frayed Burlap". Also sponged around the outside of the oval.

Used the oval as a stencil and inked up a stencil to use as a stamp (Tim's "Burlap") using "Peacock Feathers", "Cracked Pistachio" and a touch of "Wild Honey", misted with water and stamped. Drew a line around the oval with a Sakura green Metallic gel pen.

Put the mask back in place and used Dreamweaver white texture paste through the stencil (Tim's "Flourish"), when dry, sprayed with Distress Spray Stain "Antiqued Bronze"

Stamped the sentiment using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.

Die cut the "Hello" from white cardstock, inked with Versafine "Vintage Sepia" and embossed with Emeral Creek Hot Stuff "Chic Camo" embossing powder (love their embossing powders with all the variations... this one with gold speckles). Adhered to card front.

Die cut the Hybrid Heirloom Roses (Die-Namics) from watercolor paper, colored them with Color Burst in "yellow" and "Yellow Ochre" then some "orange" and a touch of "Alizarin Crimson". Misted generously with water and allowed to dry. Then smooshed the undersides through the wetness on my craft sheet. Dried. Sprayed them with Perfect Pearls "Sunflower Sparkle". Quilled the centers and assembled the flowers then adhered to card.

Tied a brown/silver Sari bow and adhered to card.

Added a row of pearl ribbon around the oval using a hot glue tool.

Added some die cut foliage (Frantic Stampers "Elegant Vine") from white cardstock and inked with some Distress greens.

Stamped the small sentiment with the black, clear embossed and punched with a Paper Shaper tag punch

The glittered butterfly was from my stash using the Silhouette "Butterfly Circle Frame" eCut file. I added some of the pearl ribbon for the body.

As a final touch, stamped the little Chickadee on white cardstock using the black and clear embossed. Colored the body with a cream Prism colored pencil and fussy cut, then adhered into the roses...
