A Girl Should be Two Things....

October 16, 2011

....classy and fabulous!!  Coco Chanel...I couldn't agree with you more.  And I don't think this just pertains to the way we dress...I think it is also important in how we act, speak, present ourselves, and treat others.  And it doesn't mean being perfect either...because none of us will ever be that.  Anyways...I just love that quote, and you will see it on my card today! ;)

Two Peas in a Bucket has an event going on called Stamping A to Z right now, and I am one of the guests for today's post, G is for Glitz Design & Glossy Accents.  Of course, I did a project using Glitz Design product for them.  You could be one winner of some amazing Glitz Design product (and more!!) this week...just check out the 2Peas event blog that I linked above for details!!

Here is the card that I created for this event.  I did create it for some other blog challenges too, and those will be linked at the bottom!
"A Girl Should be Two Things..." supplies:
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (vintage cream) 
Paper/Ephemera/Tulle/Lace/Stamps: Glitz Design (Beautiful Dreamer: Floral, Stripe)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: honey) & Tsukineko (Chalk: pixie dust)
Distress Ink/Blending Tool: Tim Holtz (antique linen)
Flower: Prima Marketing
Buttons: Doodlebug Designs
Twine: May Arts
Doily die: My Favorite Things
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Make card from vintage cream cardstock, and distress ink the edges.  Cut a pink paper block slightly smaller, distress the edges, and adhere to the front.  Cut a smaller vintage cream cardstock block, and distress ink the edges.  Sand the edges of butterfly ephemera, and adhere a strip of lace to the left side of it.  Tie tulle around the bottom of it, accent the middle of the bow with a button, and then adhere the entire piece to the cream cardstock block.  Cut a very thin strip of striped paper, and adhere to the right side of the butterfly image.  Accent the lace edge with a strip of pink pearls, then adhere the entire block to the card front using foam adhesive.  Diecut a doily from vintage cream cardstock, stamp the doily to the middle of it, then distress ink the edges.  Thread a button with twine, and adhere to the middle of the doily cut.  Adhere the entire cut to the card front, along with a pink flower.  Stamp the sentiment label to vintage cream cardstock, cut out, and adhere to the card front as shown.  Accent with pink pearls to finish.

So, what do you think?!  Beautiful Dreamer pretty much just takes my breath away every time I use it...so gorgeous, and my favorite colors.  Sigh- I love it!  Tee hee!  Well, that is all I have to share with you for now.  I will be a guest for this event again this week, so be sure to check back!!  ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
