Dreams Take Wings

I had the hardest time getting my camera to take pictures of this card. It just doesn't want to focus right...I am so sad. But enough of my sorrows. I was so excited to open my box of goodies, to see the new pre-cut rubber for our stamps, the new colors. Oh the joy and sorrow. I really miss the "old" in colors.

Today's "Dreams Take Wings" card recipe:

Stamps: Dreams Du Jour
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Creamy Caramel
Designer Paper: Bella Rose
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, colored pencils, scallop punch, scissors, Two way glue pen, Dimensionals
Cut the Riding Hood Red cardstock 5 1/2" by 8 1/2" and scored at 4 1/4".

Bella Rose (rose side) cut 5 1/2" by 3" and 1 strip 1" by 5 1/2" and a second strip 1/2" by 5 1/2".

Bella Rose (polka dot) cut 1" by 5 1/2".

Take Riding Hood Red cardstock and fold on the score mark. Adhere your first square of Bella Rose to cardstock. I then ran the "polka dot" Designer Paper through the scallop punch. Slightly overlapping the first layer of DP, adhere polka dot strip. Take the 1" strip of Bella Rose and ahere so that the green side is facing up. (I placed my strip 1/4" from the scallopped edge.) Then center 1/2" strip on top of green strip.

Stamp the "Grow Great" dreams stamp twice on Whisper White cardstock. Color with pencils the leaves on one stamped image and the flowers one the second. Cut out one whole stamped image and the flowers on the second image. Sponge with Creamy Caramel over the whole stamped image. With your Dimensionals, layer the cut out flowers on top of whole stamped image. Adhere to the strip.

Take your Kiwi Kiss and stamp two butterflies. Cut out and fold the wings slightly up at the body. With your 2 way glue pen, touch the wings where you would like to see the glitter; add glitter. Put adhesive on the body only of the butterfly and adhere to card.

To simplify this card for a Level One stamp camp, do not add glitter to butterfly and omit the flower layering.

Have a Happy Tuesday!!

Fun card! I love the bella rose paper :) Thanks for the comments on my blog ... and yes, the wine tote will hold an actual bottle ... now I just have to buy one and get it to my friend before she celebrates one year in her house! I found the tote on clearance at Mike's. It looked pretty awful with some faux leathery stuff all over it. I tore all that off and viola had a blank canvas to work with! Love your blog and your children are darling ... how do you stamp, scrap and blog with 8????? i have trouble with 2 (+ my neices a lot)!
