Today's card I made with another stamp from my sister-in-law's collection. No idea where she got this one, but I love the saying. I started with a scrap from the bin of light cream and burgundy filigree paper and mounted it on card stock from my DCWV Jewel Textured Stack. I then used some paper called "Happy Holidays" by Jackie Eckles that I had left over from a class I took at Scrapbooker's Paradise at Christmas. I believe it was the acrylic album class I took with Dana from Dana's House of Cards! That's when we met! I cut out two pieces from the back of that holiday paper which is the polka dots and mounted them both on the same burgundy card stock as before. The bottom one I made a frilled edge on the right so I could add the jewels. I made a six layer flower (I love to layer as many as I can) and fastened it with a orange jewelled brad. I dusted all the edges of the cardstock with DuDrop's Jumbo Java Ink and added the burgundy with lemons ribbon on the right. I bought that ribbon a long long time ago at Michael's and I still have tonnes of it left! I tied a knot in it at the top and tucked the mounted sentiment "All things grow with love" under it. Ta-da - finished!

The striped paper on the left is a scrap too from a Dollarama pack and I used two pieces of ribbon both the same pattern, one purple and one green. The stamp is my sister-in-law's and it was from a clear set she got at Michael's. I stamped it with jet black ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram powder. What else would I use - really?!? I colored it in using my Crayola's and put a clear jewel on the top of the cupcake! The sentiment "Hi Cupcake!" is from the same clear stamp set and it is stamped and embossed the same way. I mounted everything on purple paper from my DCWV Jewel Texture Stack and used my sissors to cut the frilled edges. After making knots with the ribbon and putting them on with a pop dot each, I used 3 tiny jewes in the bottom left corner to finish it off! Not bad for my first day back after a long week of sickness! YAY!!!
Hope you guys are all well. Tomorrow I'm gonna do some serious blog hoping - it's been forever! Can't wait!
Have a great Saturday!!!

Of course we all know that I am doing the scrap bin only thing, so all my papers (again) are from the masses of teeny tiny pieces I have left over. But I will get it all used - I vow!!!
I started with the background bright pink card stock from my DCWV's Jewel Textured Stack. Using a punch I made two frilly squares and layered them on top the background. On the left I used some bright blue cardstock and make a strip with a frilled edge on one side. I then mounted a piece of pale green and olive colored vined paper that has some sparkle. I made two different flowers and mounted them both with magenta jeweled brads. Lastly I used some ribbon from Michael's and made a knot. The stamp is by Studio G and is one of their clear sets you can buy at Michael's. I stamped it in Jet Black Ink and embossed it with Stamp-It's Hologram Powder.
