Keep Calm & Create Art Card

Hello blogging friends! I just can't believe we are already at the end of March! This time last year we were on our family vacation in Florida--it seems like it's been forever since we were there and I can't wait until we can go back--LOL! The card I have to share with you today is from one of the classes I did last weekend at VIP Scrapbook in Rochester, MN.

I used CR-02255 Just Keep Calm stamp set from JustRite Stampers to stamp the frame and the sentiment. I just love this stamp set! There are so many fun little words and you can design a card for almost any occasion. I used Rich Cocoa ink for the sentiment and Bundled Sage for the frame. After I had the stamping done I used the Grand Calibur and S4-353 Labels Twenty-Four die templates to cut/emboss the label shape. I added Antique Linen to the paper doily and lightly inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Here is a close up of the sentiment and frame. I also used Scrap Happy Sheer Glue and the Stick "EM" Up Tool to apply the tiny Ivory Pearls (coming soon) to the label. I have to tell you everyone in the classes LOVED the Stick "EM" Up Tool and said it was a Must Have Tool!! It makes picking up and applying embellishments like pearls and rhinestones so easy to do!

In the class I showed how to create these little roses using a large stylus (6mm or 12mm) and a quilling tool. My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Happy Beach Stripe paper (polk-a-dot side) was used to create the flowers along with S5-086 Bitty Blossoms and S4-328 Foliage die templates from Spellbinders. Once the flowers were shaped and glued in place then Scrap Happy Sheer Glue was brushed on the flowers/leaves and Diamond Clear Glitter was added.

Green cardstock was used for the base of the card and the pattern paper is from My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Howdy Doody Beautiful Roses. The Distrezz-it-All tool was used on the edges of the paper.
