Anyhoo..here's the card I'd like to share with ya'll..my kit this time had lotsa vintage buttons and cards..and I used one of those vintage cards for this post today..I love that lil camera image! simply gorgeous don't ya think? ;)
Just to share a few tips with you crafty friends :
1) Gesso out words / phrases that you don't want...the Gesso effect will give a vintage feel
2) Don't be afraid to glam up a vintage card further. I stamped some text images around this piece
3) Leftovers / scraps left behind by punched out portions can be assembled to form pretty flowers (like what I have done for the flowers on this card ;))
Materials Used : Ivory Cardstock, My Mind's Eye PP, Ek Success Border Punch, Bling, Cosmo Cricket Tiny Type Sentiment

This month its all about stamping and this is my last posting for Papier as I'm taking a break. Presenting my mini album with lots and lots of stamping. Hope you are inspired to start stamping and create your own pattern paper and embellishements.
I was inspired by my butterflies stamp collection, so I decided to use it and create my background pp for the whole mini album. Butterflies everywhere. I also stamped the sentiments and the journaling tag.
Do you like my creation of pattern paper? Give it a try, take out your stamps, start stamping and create your own background. It's easy and fun. Till then, happy stamping!
Materials used: My Mind's Eye pp, Plain cs, Pink Paislee pp, Rubber stamps & Clear stamps, Distress Ink, Liquid Pearls, Stickles, Tim Holtz Tissue tape, Acrylic paint, Jenni Bowlin chipboard button, Lace, Sizzix Dies.

Off to the card I'd like to share, I decided to go on a one colour theme this time ;) here's a lil how-to:
1) Cut out cardstock to 4x11
2) Cut-out Patterned Paper to 3.8x5.3
4) Cut the patterned paper horizontally into 2
5) Adhere both halves of the patterned paper to the cardstock
6) Stitch both halves together
7) Using the same patterned paper, fussy cut details (if there are details to fussy cut) and adhere and layer with flowers and stamp a sentiment
Materials Used : My Mind's Eye Patterned Paper, Cardstock, Prima E-Line flowers, Pearl Blings, Ranger Distress Inks, Gel-a-tins Sentiment Stamp
If you haven't tried stitching on your card yet, you should! cause it gives texture and it's def fun to play with other methods in card making too! ;) toodles folks! catch ya soon!! ;)

Cosmo cricket buttons by collection
This is what I created for Papier's DT project this week.
My 1st card 'all kinds of thanks'.
My 2nd card 'you make my heart flutter'. Instead of using pp, I make my own pp using stamps. I enhance the stamped image with Stickles, Glossy Accents and Distress Ink.
Instead of a card, how about giving a bookmark. This is a simple bookmark holder with pocket and a transparent cover that I created. My bookmark holder 'Believe in your dreams'.
I embossed the tranparency, punch the pp, add my handmade bloom. I stamped the butterfly image onto a transparency, cut it out and adhere with Glossy Accents.
Inside. The pocket is to hold the bookmark.
The simple bookmark that I created. I prefer flat bookmark, so I just stamped, colour the butterfly image and enhance it with Stickles, Glossy Accents and Distress Ink.
The simplest ever! Till then, happy stamping and enjoy the month of May!
Materials used: My Mind's Eye pp, Plain cs, Distress Ink, Stickles, Martha Stewart Puncher, Liquid Pearls, Glossy Accents, transparencies.
