I rounded 2 opposite corners of both the stamped strips, inked them lightly & matted them on slightly larger white cardstock. I adhered both the strips on the card front.

Butterfly Music

Hello friends & welcome to So Suzy Stamps Butterfly Music Feature inspiration post.

I love this stamp ... it's so pretty...

I started with my 4 1/4" 5 1/2" card base & masked off the center portion with a strip of copy paper.

Then I adhered my stencil to it with a low tack tape & inked the top & bottom unmasked border with Mermaid Lagoon & Crushed Olive distress inks.

Background Technique for Tiny Stamps

Hello friends,
Welcome to Inspired By Stamping inspiration post.
Today I am sharing a technique to use the tiny stamps in any stamp set to create beautiful backgrounds...

For this card I used various tiny stamps from Beautiful YouJust For You & Words of Inspiration II stamp sets & stamped them randomly to create the background. Then I took my stencil & inked lightly with the same color ink to finish the background.

Then I die cut the word Birthday from the background & from black cardstock 5 times. Stacked & glued them so that the stamped word was on top & glued the whole piece back on the background after stamping the work Happy from Fresh Bouquet stamp set right above the die cut word. I used a die cut scalloped black border to frame the background.

Hope you like it & give this technique a try...
Thank for visiting today :)

Wedding Gift Tutorial

Hello friends,
Today I have a tutorial for a quick and easy gift.
This tutorial can be used to make a gift for any occasion.
I have to used the Wedding Collection Kit for this post...
This is the front...

And here is the inside... It has 4 pockets for tags... Theses tags can be used as photomats as well as a messages & giftcards.
I started with creating the base for this pocket card.
Take a 11 3/4" x 8" piece of white cardstock & score at 5 3/4" & 6". Fold on the score lines.
Take another piece of 8 3/4" x 3" piece of white cardstock & score at 1/2" & 8 1/4", rotated it & scored at 1/2". Fold the score lines & cut the corners as shown. This will be our pocket for the left side.
Now for the right side pocket take a white cardstock measuring 6 1/2" x 7 1/2"
Then I scored it at 1/2" & 6", rotated it & scored at 1/2".
Fold the score lines & cut the corners as shown.
Now measure 2" from the top on the left score line & draw a line till the top of right score line.
Cut off the resulting triangle.

Adhere the pattern paper of your choice and mark 2" & 4" from the top on both sides.
punch a hole on all 4 marks keeping them in a straight line on both sides.
cut a sliver of paper out between 2 holes to make an opening as shown .
Adhere both the pockets to the base & decorate with pattern papers.
For the right pocket tags I took 3 lengths of cardstock all with a width of 4".
I used a decorative die to make the top tab of all 3 tags & decorated them with beautiful pattern papers from the Wedding Collection.
For the left pocket tag I used the journaling cards from the Wedding Collection matted them on white cardstock.
To decorate the caver I choose the paper with the beautiful bride & groom image.
I glued the pink sequins in the Wedding Kit to decorate the frame around the couple. I also glued some white pearls. Then I adhered the leaf lace, fabric flower & adhesive button as shown.
Next I took a lace from my stash & weaved the pink jute twine through it & adhered on the left side. Lastly I added a jute bow & flower to finish it.

Hope you like it...
