Love this set - Kinda Eclectic

Using Whisper white card stock A6 in size.

1. I lightly skimmed across the inside of Modern Mosaic embossing folder with Crumb cake ink and laid the front side of the card inside and randomly pressed to give the background image a distressed look.

2. Stamp the Sun blast in Hello Honey

3. Stamp the leaves in Old Olive from the Kinda Eclectic set using 1st 2nd and 3rd generation stamping.

4. Using Pumpkin pie stamp randomly the small butterfly

5. using a strip of DSP in Blackberry bliss cutting either at an angle or a banner style to your preference

6. Add some linen thread

7. stamp a sentiment onto Kraft card and decorate either....
      a) Stamp & Punch out large butterfly and add to sentiment
      b) stamp the butterfly image onto Whisper White and punch the butterfly out of the Kraft card  with the sentiment on and then lay over the butterfly,

8.  Raise with 3-D dimensionals.

9. Punch out and add to card and finish with some rhinestones to complete the look.

A 3-D project

Oh my gosh the last two weeks have just been a whirl. I just lost days and cant find them, I feel like I have not stopped but cant show anything constructive for any of them.. Loads of workshops and prepping thats all i can say.

So I thought I would show you a little 3-d project I put these on the table for each person this week at the classes.

Very simple using a piece of card cut to 10.5 cm x 11.5cm and scored as per the photo bend in the two flaps and secure with glue or tape my preference is the red line tape.

Cut a srip of paper long enough to wrap around your box and either stamp a design or just use a contrasting colour or DSP, then stamp a sentiment of choice.... then of course a little bar of Green & Black chocolate. Hey Presto!

One of my Lovely friends from my stamp group Kim Fee made a larger version and it gave me the idea to make a smaller one to fit my chocolates..
you can use all number of stamped sentiments to create your own version of this.
