Good morning! How are you today? Everything is chugging right along this week so no complaints from me! Today I have my post for this month’s Stylin’ Stampin’ Blog Tour. This month we are featuring projects that use fabric. You may have arrived here from Kim Ryden’s blog. She had some neat projects didn’t she?! Today I have two cards for you and both contain some linen fabric.
First up I have what I like to call the mummy card. The card starts off with a base of Primrose Petals Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of River Rock, which has to be my most under used color. To give it a little extra detail I used the Essential Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool to make the scallop along the bottom. The panel is created with some linen fabric that I picked up at a craft store. I cut it into strip and used some Sticky Strip to hold it in place around the back and also to adhere it to the card. The little bandaids are form the Patterned Occasions Stamp Set and are stamped in River Rock and Primrose Petals. I cut them out with my Paper Snips and adhered them to the linen strips with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is form the same set and is stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the Word Window Punch. I really like the Primrose with the River Rock. They go quite nicely together. After seeing the card you can see why I call it the mummy card!
Next up is a card that contains an item that I forgot I had and it’s the first time I’m using it! The base of this card is Whisper White Card Stock. I cut out a piece of Whisper White with The Lattice Bigz Die and backed it with a piece of Bashful Blue. Before I adhered it to the Gumball Green piece I used some White Stampin’ Emboss Powder to emboss the Thanks so much form the Oh, Hello! Stamp Set. The butterfly is a piece of burlap that I cut out with the Beautiful Butterflies Bgz L Die. For the body I made a paper bead from some First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. A Mini Glue Dot holds the butterfly and body in place. The flower is some more of the linen fabric that I used on the first card that I cut out with the Fun Flowers Bigz L Die. I used a Stampin’ Spritzer that I filled with some Primrose Petals Re-Inker and half water and half rubbing alcohol to spray the flowers to color them. I put them under my desk lamp to speed the drying and they curled up a little which I was quite happy about. I used some more Mini Glue Dots to hold them on the card and a Large Basic Jewel Pearl is placed in the middle. The card has a nice slightly vintage yet modern feel about it. I really did like making the flower, it was fun!
