Today, I wanted to work with some papers and toys I picked up at Scrapbookers Paradise recently, and I love the result. I love working within one line of paper and embellishments! It really makes things come together quickly since everything coordinates perfectly! This time I chose Making Memories Reverie Noir collection. I think it's a wedding line, but the colours and design appealed to me enough to make me want to play!
Stamps: Fine Herbs (Flourishes)
Paper: Grey & Black cardstock, Paper Reverie DP (Making Memories)
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
Accessories: Black pearl flourish (Kaiser), Reverie Noir butterflies (Making Memories), Lace trim (Kaiser), black & white polka dot ribbon (American Crafts), W3 Copic Marker
The card is pretty simple, in fact I worked with Clean & Simple sketch #120, and it came together really quick! The patterned paper is Making Memories Reverie Noir and features both sides of the same sheet. I wrapped some Kaiser Lace trim around the seam. I cut apart a Kaiser black pearl flourish for the butterfly trail, and the butterflies themselves are Making Memories Noir Black, layered 3 high. I love these butterflies! There are 60 butterflies in the package; 4 each of 15 designs (front and back), and in 3 different sizes (20 of each size)!
Finally I tied it off with some black and white polkadot ribbon, and I tried to tone down the white dots by running my W3 Copic marker over them, and it turned out pretty good. Clean and simple, quick and easy!
You can still get in on Free Shipping at Scrapbooker's Paradise all through the month of December! Canadian orders over $50 will have their shipping charge removed at processing! How sweet is that?
Well I told you dd & I made cookies yesterday, well today (well Sunday...really), we decorated them. I thought I would share a few pic's of the activities.
We made 80 cookies, and at the time of photos, there were only 65. Hmmm, I wonder where the other 15 cookies went? We had great intentions of decorating the cookies fancy, but it wasn't as easy as they make it look, so I don't think you'll be seeing us on Cake Boss anytime soon! And those sprinkles...I'd like to ban them from cookies and donuts for all time. Eeek...what a mess, but, I prevailed all in the name of motherhood. DD told me is was her best day ever!! Am I feeling good now? I am bursting at the seams (in more ways than one...those were good cookies!).
Hey...have a wonderful day and a fabulous week! Thanks for stopping by an letting me share...it really means the world to me!
