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....

Get Well with Spellbinders and Punches

Hello again my blog friends,

Here is another example of how to use those tools you've been collecting to their finest advantage!  For this card I have used a Punch Around the Page punch set from Martha Stewart, and some Spellbinder dies to offset a couple of beautiful JustRite sentiments.  I love the color combination of rich chocolate brown with white and cream fancy cardstock.  I use this combination often for wedding cards and special get well or sympathy cards.  I layered my specialty cardstock on top of Charlie petallic card base.  The first fancy cut panel is made using the Martha Steward Iron Gate Punch Around the Page punch set.  On top of that I used the petallic chocolate brown again and cut a Spellbinders Fleurs De Lis Pendant to layer on to offset the cream.  Then, I wanted a little "old world" shine on this card so I used Bazzil Gold Foil cardstock and cut a Lacey Square from the Lacey Square Nestibility die set to show off my beautiful sentiment from Justrite.  I stamped a selection from the 2" Hope Borders and Centers set on one of the Square Nestibilities diecuts.  Layering all these choices shows definition and depth on your cards.  Inside the card I used the Spellbinders Mega Classic Ovals Large and then the Mega Classic Scalloped Ovals to stamp a sentiment from the JustRite Sympathy Nested Sentiments & Verse.  I had lots of fun with this card and there is quite a few different stamps and tools used to achieve this wonderful result.  Again, I would like to mention a fundraiser crop that is coming up this weekend at the Fatima School on Hillside in Elliot Lake.  The crop starts on Friday evening at 6:00 pm.  On Saturday morning, I will be there with the OC Scrapbooking team doing some demos on  Spellbinder dies and Martha Stewart Punch around the Page punches.  Deb and the girls will have other demos for you to check out....  The contact person for this crop is Cindy Emond and you may contact her at celebrate_scraps@yahoo.ca  to book a spot or make any inquiries.
Contact Deb at OC Scrapbookers to find out what is on the agenda for demos and more..   
Hope to see you there this weekend!  Stay tuned for another scrumptious layout coming soon!!
