Well, I started off my weekend with some fun last night with some of my peeps from work! We went out to the bar and celebrated my friend Rob’s Birthday. The usual suspects were there and Fred being the bad influence that he is made me stay out until 2:00am! Hence my lateness this morning. I do have to say that watching everyone else drink is much more fun than drinking yourself! LOL! The rest of my day yesterday was nice, it was sunny and warm here again. I came home and had dinner, one of my favorites, homemade mac & cheese! I spent a little time in the Stampin’ Galley organizing and then Taylor came over and we took a ride to the shoe store to see if she could find some new sneakers. She didn’t but we’ll look again tomorrow. After that it was off to meet the rest of hooligans at the bar. Today I’m supposed to see my friend Sue for some lunch! That should be fun!
The project I have for you today is my Mother’s Day present as promised! I also have the cards from the March class at Scrap-A-Latte. But first I’ll get to the… I guess you would call it a layout! I used some papers from the Prima Butterfly Collection. I cut one slightly smaller and adhered Fun Foam behind it and adhered it to the 12X12 page to serve as my base. My brick wall is created using some Light Modeling Paste and a few drops of “Vintage” Bravo Burgundy Re-Inker. I mixed up the paste and color and then used a palette knife to apply it to a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. The “bricks” are a piece of chip board from Blue Fern Studios called Shabby Brick Bits. I heat embossed the front with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and pushed it into the paste. Once it had dried I adhered it to the page and surrounded it with some Prima Flowers, also from the Butterfly Line. The leaves are cut from Vellum and The Paper Cut White Gold Curious Metallic Card Stock with the Simon Says Stamp Clustered Leaves Die. They are adhered under the picture which is mounted to more Fun Foam and adhered to the page with SNAIL. The large butterfly is a combination of the Simon Says Stamp Paulina Butterfly, cut from Vellum, and the Devonshire Butterfly, cut from Blushing Bride. They are adhered to each other with 2-Way Glue and to the page with a thin piece of Foam Tape. The three smaller butterflies are the negatives from the Simon Says Stamp Butterfly Drift Die. A few sequins from the Prima Butterfly Chipboard Stickers Kit are adhered randomly around on the top part of the page with Glossy Accents and one of the stickers is added under the picture. Finally I used some Ranger Onyx Liquid Pearls for the bodies of the butterflies and brushed over the smaller ones with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen. I did end up giving this to mum in a frame last week because I couldn’t wait! LOL! Since I finished it way before I also managed to take it outside and get a nice picture, you can even see the sparkle from the Wink of Stella on the butterfly wings!
Next up I have the cards that I created for the March Card Class at Scrap-A-Latte. They use all Lawn Fawn Stamps and Dies. I think that my favorite one is the birthday card!
