Now onto my projects. I chose to use various images from the stamp set to make my own background paper for my card. This is always a fun technique. You can take a full sheet of cardstock and stamp till your heart's content or until you think it looks just right. Yeah, sometimes you can go a little overboard if you don't stop yourself. LOL! I like to pick it up after I've stamped a few images just to see what it looks like. I chose our current in colors for this project. I have them listed on the bottom of this post. I went for a very simple design and layout. Sometimes I see such awesome works of art when it comes to cards, but realistically I think when people need to mass produce cards or only have a limited time to stamp they want some quick, simple, cute ideas and I think this card fits the bill.
For my 3D project I actually started out with some flowers that I had previously die cut awhile ago. I started layering them and before I glued them down I took my Wink of Stella pen and went to town on them. If you haven't guessed by now I'm a shiny girl. I like sparkles. After that I started to glue them down. Once they were glued down I realized it needed something in the middle so I pulled out the Falling in Love embellishments and added one to the middle. Then it was like ok, I have a flower, whatever shall I do with it and then I spied a package of 4" gold paperclips I had picked up with the intention of making something with them. I hot glued the flower to the paperclip and on the back to cover up the glue I used a 1-3/4" circle. I then glue on the loops of the 1/4" very vanilla satin ribbon and added another circle to finish it off. I didn't photograph the back so if you'd like to see that please let me know and I can post a pic of the back. This will make a great bookmark or you can use it as a regular paper clip to keep organized in a pretty way.
I seem to always have a hard time photographing the Wink of Stella, but I think this time it turned out pretty good.
