I really do adore the things we sell at Stampassion.com and love having time to actually create with them. There just isn't enough of it, which probably makes me like everyone else. When I do have, or make, extra time, I enjoy combining four of my paper art loves...stamping, Zentangle, craft dies and embossing folders. This card does just that and it is for my dear Mary D's birthday today and, being me, it was mailed yesterday.
The tangle, Splinters, is by Lizzie Maynes and you can find the step-out on my Tangle Patterns board on Pinterest. It looks somewhat floral and I thought it would be a good focal point for the center of this gorgeous Memory Box die we carry, Loom Circle. I drew Splinters, and the checks, with a Black Micron .01 Pen, colored with PrismaColor Pencils and added sparkle with a Clear Stardust Pen, which you can't see in the photo : (
The circles were cut with Nestabilities dies. I added dots around the Loom Circle with a Black Glaze Pen. The Embossing Folder is in Hero Arts' Chevron & Flourishes Set, embossed on our Cream Cougar Card Stock and popped off a Cream Linen Card. A few scattered pink gems help tie-in the color inside the card plus, Mary likes the bling!
The small Isabella Butterfly die, from Memory Box, is cut from Razzle Berry Card Stock. Both Sour Apple and Razzle Berry are in one of my favorite paper assortments, Festive Variety ~ the colors are happy and they work beautifully together.
All I can hope is that Mary received her card today and enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it for her.
Happy Birthday Mary!
