The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Great New Card -- Thinking of YOU

Hello Everyone
I am posting a Sympathy Card featuring Spellbinders Dies. The pattern paper I am using here is a swirl paper with a varnish finish. I cut panels of pattern paper, matted them with black cardstock to fit on a Paper Company's Blond Columns textured cardstock for a sophisticated finish.
On the first layer I used Spellbinders Labels 8 cutting a label out of Bazzil Petallics cardstock in creme. I embossed this label with a Sizzix embossing plate in the swirl pattern to compliment the pattern paper. I then used the Spellbinders Mega Ovals Scallop die and then the Spellbinders Mega Oval straight edge die on top. As the embellishment I used the Spellbinder L.E. Cross Collection and applied the use of a couple of the dies, embellishing them with gold pettalic cardstock. I tied a creme ribbon edged chiffon bow onto the tail of the cross embellishment and topped the desgn off with three of the Martha Stewart table confetti flowers with gold beaded accents.
Find these Spellbinders dies and so much more at Stamping Scrapping where you can have a shopping experience extravaganza!!
For my loyal followers, this is my last post as a designer for my wonderful friend Cindy as I will be very busy with another new adventure. I am sad to leave as a designer but looking forward to a wonderful and continued friendship with Cindy, Kevin and all my designer friends from ScrappingStampingdotcom.
Look for more exciting news to come on my blog and the blog candy I have been promising! As a long time Close to My Heart consultant and biggest collector of bling and exciting embellishments, I have so much to put into the blog candy-- you will be amazed!!
