December Club Q with Rhonda

Happy Thursday Quick Quotes friends!  Rhonda here today to host the blog for you.

I have a page to share with you today featuring the December Club Q - Option A along with other pieces from Quick Quotes and some of my extras at home.  This month's kits feature the very beautiful Stowaway collection along with a bit of Cracklin' Rose and Cherry Truffle.

Both base layers of my page are inked with Amaretto PowderPuff Chalk Ink.  I also trimmed out a 10 x 10 mid section of my brown background paper before attaching to save for other projects.  : )  You probably do this too.  It's a nice way to have a layered look and be thrifty all at the same time!

The snowflake die cuts in the kit are so much fun to work with!  I used the template from those dies as a mask with some Tahiti PowderPuff Chalk Ink and a foam pouncer to add a few more to my design.  

Once I had my snowflakes punched out, inked and then arranged, I took my large vellum quote "Children are the Hands" and trimmed it down just a bit.  Then, I applied some Biscotti and Tahiti PowderPuff Chalk Inks to the back by swirling my pouncers around randomly to create some interest.

The remaining elements were layered in bit by bit.  I started with the pop of pretty yellow cardstock and  a piece of torn vellum.  The white strip of card stock snowflakes was punched using a Martha Stewart deep edge border punch.

The negative space snowflake on the upper top corner was punched with a Martha Stewart large snowflake and behind it is another piece of vellum.

The brown polka dot inverse of that snowflake is layered under the right upper corner of the yellow.  I took another bitty snowflake punch and using vellum, then attached to the top of my photo.  It's subtle but I loved the simple texture.  The final step for my page was adding Diamond Stickles to the flourish designs on the background.

I wanted to also mention that I coordinated placement of my bling when I attached the photo so I could tuck it in under the photo mat.  Isn't it so pretty?!!!  I just love the flourishes in this month's kit!
