The weather is changing and we have something special to you!!! Martha Lucia is here to present to you the theme for this month: we will be using stamps and embellishments!

Any kind of embellishments: ribbon, baker's twine, die cuts, rhinestones, lace, you get the idea!

Here is my inspiration...

I used baker's twine, die cuts and rhinestones. Three different types of embellishments worked perfectly with our paper collections. Let me show how I created this card:
  1. Cut the base of the card.
  2. Cut a layer using the green side of Earth Wind Fire 106 (coming soon).
  3. Cut a third layer using a big scallop die cut border using the beige side of Urban Oasis 103 (coming soon).
  4. Cut a fourth layer using the dark blue side of Earth Wire Fire 107 (coming soon).
  5. Paste the second and third layer over the card base.
  6. Tie a few loops of baker's twine around of the fourth layer and and create a bow with the ends.
  7. Stamp a sentiment over a piece of the Urban Oasis 103 using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink and layer this piece over a piece of Whistlin Dixie 108
  8. Cut a Curly Butterfly using a piece of Whistlin Dixie 108 and paste over the sentiment using glue dots.
  9. Finalize the decoration by adding some blue rhinestones.

Quick Quotes Ingredients:
Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink
Whistlin' Dixie 108

I hope I have inspired you to make something fun today. See you soon! Thanks for stopping by!   Martha Lucia

Thank you for the fun challenge. I have used a few die cuts (manual and machine cuts), a bit of bling, old alphabet stickers, a bit of twine you can't see in the pics and pictures of my county fair blue winning cards.
