Every day holds...

Today I was inspired by this week's Card Patterns Sketch 62 and I thought it would be perfect for this new stamp from JustRite's Hope Set.  I decided to use soft, delicate colours and try my hand at a bit of vintage!  :)

I started with a base of Whirlpool Bazzill and layered with Very Vanilla (pierced) and some MME French Flea Market DSP.  In the middle I cut two scallop circles and offset them and pierced the scallops of the top circle.  Across the middle I attached a piece of ivory satin ribbon and some aqua grosgrain ribbon.  Next I took the border and centre from the JustRite April Release called Hope and stamped it twice in Versacolor Celadon and Close to Cocoa.  (I added some Clear Spica to the flowers in the border to give a little shimmer.)  One was cut with Square Nestabilities and matted with Scallop Square Nestabilites.  The other was cut with Circle Nestabilities and popped on top of the other and then the whole panel was popped up.  Next I made the three flowers using the Dahlia Nestabilities and Very Vanilla cardstock and also added a little Clear Spica to give some more shimmer.  To finish I used a Martha Stewart punch for the branches and the Doodle Parts Spellbinders for the flourishes under the flowers and some Kaisercraft Blush Pearls to the corners.

Stamps - Hope (JustRite)
Paper - Whirlpool Bazzill, Very Vanilla, MME French Flea Market DSP
Ink - Versacolor (Celadon), Close to Cocoa
Accessories - Large Circle, Large Scallop Circle, Large Square, Large Scallop Square, Dahlia Nestabilities, Doodle Parts Shapeabilities, Martha Stewart Branch Punch, Ivory Satin Ribbon, Aqua Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Spica Pen, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Kaisercraft Blush Pearls, Foam Tape.

In less than 24hrs I fly off to Melbourne to attend the Copic Certification Class there!  I'm so excited about it and I'm sure I'll have a fantastic time!!!  No doubt I'll have photos when I get back and I'll let you know all about it next week!!  :)

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
