Now for my project! I was over the moon ecstatic this week when I saw that eclectic Paperie had added the Crafty Individuals line of stamps to the shop! Some of my favorite stamps (that I haven’t had the opportunity to use for some time) are from this line. I purchased maybe 10 stamps from Magenta about 5 or 6 years ago while I was at Stampaway (all of them Crafty Individuals) and luckily a couple of the ones I have, Kim has in the store! SO what that means, is that I got to use one of my all time favorite stamps for my project today!!
The background for both the card and the image, was made by sponging Lowe’s Valspar indoor paint samples on watercolor paper. The image was stamped in black and embossed in clear, three separate times. The first image was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders® Classic Squares SM, mounted on white that was die cut/embossed with Classic Squares LG, and then mounted on black that had been die cut/embossed with Lacey Squares. For the second butterfly image, each individual square was cut out and mounted on the coordinating square of the main image. Using the third embossed image, each individual butterfly was cut out and mounted on the second image squares.
Hopefully you can see all the dimension and layers in the above image.
I don’t remember what color the seam binding was dyed. I had made it for another project, didn’t use it, and it ended up in my ribbon jar. As I was searching for a matching ribbon for the background this color just popped out at me!
The small “Happy Birthday” sentiment was stamped in black StazOn and then die cut/embossed with Back to Basics Tags.
That’s all I have for today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the hop!
