It’s a flowery day in the neighborhood!

Here’s some beautiful papers that I got to create this wonderful table display.  This project is using  Eclipse Black 100 as its base;  stunning Ruche called Sky Blue Crepe;  a sliver of Sizzle Silver glossy cardstock and a wonderful sheet of Crystal Clear.

 

First you use hill & valley folding to create the creases in your base paper.  Size for the base on the shown image is 6″x9″.  Here’s a great side view of the project to show you how all the pieces have been assembled together.

This project was done using a pattern created by Crafter’s Companion and their Ultimate Tool.  I used some Stazon ink in white to add floral stamping onto the clear sheet.  This paper takes images well and even if you are using stazon ink, if you wipe it off quickly, you can  repeat your stamp image if there is a smudge the first time.  It’s wonderful!!  Be sure to let the ink dry for a short period of time before touching it.

Once stamped, I used some clear dots to adhere to clear sheet to my black cardstock.  Here’s an image of the black cardstock with everything attached to it before I add the clear sheet:

 

Once I added the clear sheet (which is sized at 6″ x 11.5″) I wanted to cover the glue dots that I used to adhere it to my card.  To do this I used Sky Blue Crepe cardstock.  Seems like a tiny piece of paper to need, but I keep ALL scraps from every project.  When a project like this comes along, I go through all my scraps by length and found this wonderful Ruche cardstock which fit perfectly!  So save all your paper scraps for projects just like this!!  I needed a 1.5″ size of Ruche and an even tinier sliver of silver!  (Sliver of silver…now say that 5 times fast!)  Here’s a much better image that shows the Sky Blue crepe paper:

This image also shows how wonderfully the clear paper takes the white stazon ink.   Finally, here’s an image of one of the embellishment butterflies

Hope this project has inspired you today!  It sure makes me love paper.

Cheers, Holley
