Purple Journal

Hello Everyone!  Today I have another journal to show you, this time for another teacher who was so incredibly supportive to my son through his last couple of years of school.  Ms Caruso has helped him deal and work through some pretty tough times and as the year was coming to a close, sent my husband and I the most uplifting email about how proud she was with everything he had achieved.  The world needs more Ms Carusos!  I found out her favourite colour is purple, so I found some purple paper in my stash and used that as my starting block!

I've taken some Maja Designs paper from my stash (note to self, you need more purple 12x12 paper!), cut it to size, punched the edge with the Spiral Edge punch and glued it to the front of a Spirax notebook.  I found a small piece of another Maja Designs paper which was the right size for the strip across the bottom and matted with cream and purple card.  Next I cut some dark purple card with Spellbinders 5x7 Mystical Embrace.  Next I stamped the Poppy, stem and bud from Poppy XL stamps in gray flannel and coloured with Copics and coloured pencils and then die cut with the matching Poppy XL Dies.  I've popped all these up on foam tape and embellished with rhinestone flourishes.  To finish I used the Letter K Die and Letter C Die to cut some cream card and airbrushed with V25 Copic while still in the die and then glued to the front as shown.

Stamps - Poppy XL (Power Poppy)
Ink - Gray Flannel
Paper - Maja Designs, Cream, Dark Purple, X-press It Blending Card
Accessories - Copics, Prismacolor Pencils, Divinity Designs Letter K and Letter C Dies, Power Poppy Poppy XL Dies, X-press It High Tack Double Sided Tap, X-press It Foam Tape, X-press It Clear Gel Glue, Rhinestone Flourishes

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp!  :)
