Flowers.. Flowers.. Flowers.. I love making my own paper flowers! I had an empty frame and a post card sitting on my desk so I thought why not frame the post card and embellish with some hand made flowers?? then I thought.. hmm.... add some wings! Then... I got the idea to use vellum for the wings but alas, after an hour of looking for just a scrap of vellum, I couldn't find ANY! Not 1 stinkin scrap! So, I had some thick frosted plastic... I said to myself "Why not?" And away I went! I pulled out the handy dandy Black Stazon ink and my Delicate Wings Stamps and went to work! I used some teeny tiny rhinestones to dress up the wings and viola! My framed art was finished.

To make this card:
Cut a piece of cardstock to fit the card front. Cut a piece of ledger patterned paper and stamp a QKD background stamp on it and adhere to a piece of black patterned paper. Using metallic thread, attach 1/2 of a snap.
Stamp and color the Evolution stamp on white cardstock, using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and water in a mini mister create the background around the Evolution face. Spritz the entire piece with glimmer mist. I used my home made spray (hair spray with pearl ex). Mat on black and bronze cardstock. Attach other half of snap with metallic thread. Using a brad, attach a game pointer to your Evolution image. Using your favorite adhesive put your card together.
I hope you enjoyed my card today. I had a lot of fun making it. Please hop over to Janie's Blog for your next stop on our 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!

The stamp on this card, YES! It's only 1 stamp. :) It's a new background stamp that's coming out tomorrow at our stamp release party. I think I'll name it falling stars. I originally thought of it for a Christmas stamp but I'm lovin how it turned out for a Birthday card! the silver is my silver sailor pen and the dots that look kinda black are actually purple rhinestones. The whole card just blings in real life! :)
The resist I used on this card was versamark. I used my VM pad to stamp my background stamp then applied the Seedless Preserve ink over it.
I hope you like my card and will come check out the 19 day birthday celebration we have going on. There's lots and lots of fun stuff! It's over on our Facebook Fan Page.
Your next hop stop is... Kerry!
Have a happy day!

So you have a bunch of old patterned paper you don't like.. But you can't bring yourself to get rid of it.. I say stamp it! I got this idea from Jennifer McGuire in her Inspiration Showcase class. I've done this quite a bit before and before I even knew about Jennifer or her class. But She reminded me of it. :) You know how it goes, you do something 1 time then you file it in the back of your head and need a nugde to pull out that "file" again? So.. here's how I made this card:
Take some patterned paper and use one of the new large background stamps from Queen Kat Designs. here's a link. I used Vintage Photo distress ink and stamped it onto some patterned paper and adhered it to my card front.
I then stamped another background and cut out part of the image, matted it and added it to the front of my card. Using a cuttlebug flower set I got about a year or so ago I made a little flower out of white cardstock and inked it with Wild honey distress ink. I added a rhinestone in the middle with some Glossy Accents and I punched the leaves out of the patterned paper (before it was stamped) Added ribbon and the flower to the front of the card and I was done! :)
Now you go try it! :)
