Peaceful Music

Hi folks, it's Holly posting today!

Have you played in our Music challenge yet?  Dig out your old sheet music, die cut some musical notes, or pull out a music background stamp and show us what you can create!

For my card today, I pulled out the Shabby Music Background Stamp from JustRite, and stamped it with a pale gray ink onto some vanilla cardstock.  I sponged the edges with the same gray ink, and then again with some eggplant ink.

Next, I stamped the gorgeous Worn Rose Branch with the eggplant ink.  However, I used a little trick when stamping the rose branch.  Instead of inking and stamping, I inked up the stamp, then pressed the ink onto some scratch paper first.  Then I pressed the stamp onto my music paper.  This gives me a faded and much softer image, which is exactly what I wanted.  I repeated this two more times to fill in the space around the bottom.

The sentiment, from With Sympathy (JustRite), was stamped with eggplant ink and this time I stamped it directly from the ink pad.  You can see the difference in the full ink stamping of the sentiment versus the stamped-off ink from the rose branches.

I wanted to keep this card flat and mail-able, but I also wanted to add a little lace to my card.  I cut off the top right corner of my music paper and put down a strip of the 1/8" Scor Tape across the edge of the cut-off corner.  A small length of Ecru Delight lace was laid down onto the Scor Tape.

To fill in the bare corner, I cut out one of the corner dies from Lace Corner Deco F (Cheery Lynn Designs) from eggplant cardstock.  This corner piece was glued to the corner of the vanilla cardstock layer.  I then adhered my music paper to the vanilla layer, and then I glued the whole piece to an eggplant card base.
I hope you play along with our Music challenge.  I'd love to see how you use music on your projects!

Sing

Hello, Diane with you today!

I have a somewhat "vintage look" card I created for the challenge this week Musical Motifs.


I started my card with the gorgeous Stardream Rose Quartz metallic paper. I love the quality, 105# weight, and price of this paper. I wish you could see the pretty metallic sheen on this..so beautiful.

I cut Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight and layered the Cheery Lynn Designs French Pastry Doily on top.

The next layer is Memory Box Bamboo Shoots, this happens to be another favorite die of mine!


I fussy cut my Impression Obsession bird image and popped him up using Joy! Foam Pads Large.

A few scrabble tiles were added. The butterflies were punched from Bo Bunny Soft Shades Double Dot-Designs paper pad.

I added a ribbon and bow. To the top of the bow, I added a  heart embellishment from a package of Resin Pretties green Whimsy Hearts. You can't help but love this delicate little heart, so detailed!

I hope you will join in our challenge this week. We would love to see your creation!


Your card is just lovely! Thanks Diane!
