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....

Some of the Pre-order Spellbinder Nesties I got my little hands on....

Wow!  This project shows you several products and tools on one project that came together in a about an hour's time.  The design popped into my head after I had looked at a previously stamped the image colored up with Copics in which I added a previously cut Spellbinder's Butterfly Circle diecut.  When I noticed the matching colors to the the pattern paper I had in my stash I concluded that this was an excellent match.  The pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye called the Bohemia Collection which features colors of purple, lilac, teal, and purplish/browns.  The colors are amazing and compliment the stamp I colored with Copic Alchohol markers.  I like busy projects sometimes and this one is full of details and layers.  For this post, I am very excited to bring you some of my new Spellbinders that are part of the pre-orders you can see up on Debs webstore home page.  Butterfly Circles and Nested Butterflies Two are two of the Spellbinder Sets featured on this card as well as Monarch Butterflies punched from the Martha Stewart punch line.  Behind the Spellbinders Butterfly Circles I cut a 5"x5" square with another selection from the Martha Stewart line - Butterfly Punch Around the Page punches.  I cut some Spellbinders Butterfly Nested Two dies and layered them up on an embossed image from the set.  I just embossed the same die in purple cardstock that I used to cut the butterfly in cream velvet paper -- once embossed I fussy cut it out and layered it up under the cream velvet so you can see the hint of purple under the cutout.   This technique just embosses and shows the all the lines as embossed but now cut out!  Amazing effect on some intricate dies and works well for layering under the cutout diecut.  I cut the smallest of the three dies in cream velvet and layered it on top for dimension, adding some bling for texture and sparkle.  In the center, I stamped one of the four stamp selections from the Just Rite's 31/4" round Butterfly Garden ribbed set.  This is a birthday card for some lucky recipient and will be a delight to give away.  Inside the card you will notice the beautiful embossed cardstock liner.  I embossed the Teal cardstock inside the card with one of the new    Cuttlebug 5"x7" folders called Kassie's Brocade. Layered on the card too are some Prima flowers that are simply devine!! Stay tuned to see some of the flowers that I will be making myself very shortly... and come on back tomorow to get in on the best product ever!!  Hope you like this card and I hope you let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear what you think and maybe what you want to see me do in future..   as I say, more very soon - stay tuned for a very awesome preorder coming up....................  Click on the link above to visit the best webstore with the best customer service in Ontario Canada!!!
