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....

Fanciful Flight, Sending Cheerful Thoughts Your Way....

Hello Blog Friends
It is time for me to post again, well I always seem to be late getting things posted but better late than never at this point.  This time around, I have designed a 6"x9" card using a pattern paper collection from Cosmo Cricket.  This paper selection is bright, cheerful and very vintage in style.  I showcased a newly released stamp here, a JustRite stamp from their Cling collection which is elegant and Vintage in style as well.  The stamped image came out crisp and precise - I find it very easy to use the Just Rite clings.   I used several different tools to layer up various elements on this card.  On the front, the first panel to hold the stamped images was cut using a Grand Nestie Oval Scallop set cutting one of the patterns from the paper collection and matted that in drk brown metallic bazill. I used the smallest die frm the Grand Oval Scallop to cut out my first image stamped from the Vintage Oval Labels which is the largest stamp in the set.  I then stamped the next image from the Vintage Oval Labels collection and used a sentiment from the Mini Sentiments Just Because set, also a new release of 18 mini sentiments in the set.  The second stamped image was cut using the Spellbinders Labels 6.  The punched border on the front was made using a Martha Stewart Large punch called Wildflowers and the dragonfly diecut is from Spellbinders Fanciful Flight set.  The pearl design on the front is from Zva Creative Pearl and Bling self-adhesive swirl and butterfly design.  Inside of the card was lined with a piece of the matching pattern paper from the collection and embellished with another border punch from Martha Stewart and die-cuts from Spellbinders -Fancy Butterflies set.
If there is anything more I can help you with, email me or leave a comment and I will try to get back in touch with you. 
Just want to comment on the great day we had in the Sault last Saturday.  It was a great day of gathering and playing, visiting and learning, taking a look at new product and re-acqainting ourselves with products and tools that have been on the market for awhile and are not going anywhere as there is so much more to do with them and to explore further.  My card tutorial went very well and the ladies who participated had fun and now have a new card to add to their repertoire.  I look forward to putting more workshops together and working closely with OC Scrapbookers to provide some workshops over the summer and into fall.  More on that to come and please email me to let me know your interest.  You may visit OC Scrapbookers periodically for specials and news of upcoming events.  Remember too, if you want to subscribe to my blog, look for feedburner here on the left hand side of the page here.  If you want to see the card closer, click on once and if you want it closer yet, click on the picture again.  This zooms right up so you can view the details.  Watch for more posts very soon, I have a line-up of projects to post on my blog here....
