Follow Your Dreams - Showcasing The Mini Baroque Inspirational Stamps

Good Morning Everyone,

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my previous posting.
Your feedback is very much appreciated.

Today's card is quite a simple one that can be used for any occasion.

All products used to create this card can be found on Phill's Website:-


This is what I used:-

White Card Stock
Mini Baroque Inspirational Sentiment Stamps
Decadent Damask Paper Pad
Decadent Bamboo Colour Cloud Blending Ink
Decadent Bamboo Twinkles
Silver Embossing Powder
Glamour Dust
Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue
Creative Expressions Pearl Strips
Spellbinder Butterfly
Sue Wilson Dies -Noble  Classic Adorned Rectangles
Sue Wilson Perfect Peony Complete Petals

This is what I did:-

Using a sheet of Plain White Card Stock and the 2 largest dies, I cut the shape of the card out.

I then covered this using Decadent Bamboo Colour Cloud Blending Ink.

Next using the 2 smallest inner rectangle dies I cut these out applied colour cloud to the edge. I then backed this on to a piece of Decadent Damask Bamboo paper from the paper pad. (using the patterned side) and attached these to the card.


Using the Mini Baroque Inspirational Stamps I chose
'Follow Your Dreams' as this can be used for any occasion.

Using Silver Embossing Powder I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of plain white card cut to 3 x 2
This was then attached to the card using pads to give dimension.

Finishing Touches 

 Using the Perfect Peony Die I cut enough out to make up one complete flower, shaped this and added to the card.

I then cut out the butterfly and attached to the card leaving the wings free to be able to shape these (as in flight).

I then added glamour dust around the outer border, butterfly and petals, then added Bamboo Twinkles to the centre of the flower.

Finally I added pearls around the edge of the sentiment.

                           Happy Crafting
