It feels like a vintage children’s book to me. Precious. Jane Knudsen, is today’s guest stamper and a member of my Stampin’ Pretty Pals. She doesn’t have a blog but has offered a detailed explanation below on how she created this masterpiece! I’m so proud of her project . . . right down the the fabulous photography!
FROM JANE K.:
card is meant to mimic a well worn leather bound journal. Using Always Artichoke and Crumb Cake, I made the journal, distressing and adding faux
stitching. After creating my background paper using Summer Starfruit
and the Hello, Doily stamp (in Always Artichoke, Real Red and Crumb Cake),
I cut out the window framelit and the blossom party flowers.
the card in Early Espresso baker’s twine so that I could weave the Pear Pizzazz
oval in and out. I added a pop of a Real Red window framelit to layer
on the Summer Starfruit and give the eye something to draw to and then
added the Canvas Creations piece that I stamped using the Little
Friends. I offset each window framelit to add a bit of interest. The
layers all got a dose of Early Espresso on the edges. Finally, to add
some balance, I added the blossom party flowers and the sentiment from
Loving Thoughts, cut out using the Bitty Banners Framelits Die.
HOT TIP for the Stampin’ Up! Canvas Creations product ? I used black stazon and stamped on the
back side of the canvas. This gave a clearer image than when I stamped
on the front. I used the blender pen to color the little friends out of
the watercolor crayons and ink pads.
