you're fabulous!

hello crafters,
the inspiration for this card came from the sentiment. which is from  hero arts essential messages stamp set. I immediately thought of my hampton art graphic 45 cling vintage ladies stamp set.

doesn't this lady look fabulous! i really felt this sentiment was the perfect complement to this stamp.
 i stamped her on a light white and yellow designer paper page from my minds eye's stella and rose collection hattie 6x6 paper pad, using distress ink in walnut stain. i cut out the image leaving a thin white border around the lady, adhered to teal designer paper and trimmed out the lady again.

the card is a standard A2 sized card, but i covered the front with designer paper and free hand cut a curved edge into the front flap of the card. the scallops strips were cut using fiskars scalloped sentiment punch. the flowers were cut using my cricket, the cartridge used was the george and basic shapes and they were cut at 1 inch. the pearls are recollections. i stamped the sentiment on designer paper using moment ink in tuxedo black.

thanks for checking out my blog, please comment and leave any questions below as well.

it's the most wonderful time of the year. . . it's finally december and the official countdown to Christmas has begun.

this simple Christmas card was made using k&co's yuletide chrismas collection. the card base is black recollections cardstock, i purchased the sheer shimmery gold ribbon and the black velvet ribbon at michaels. the tree is a chipboard sticker, that i embellished with red and white recollections rhinestones. for the sentiment i adhered a sticker to black cardstock and cut a thin border to help it stand out from the designer paper. 

thanks for stopping by my blog. hope you're enjoying your countdown to Christmas as much as i am.
happy holidays :)
