Elegant Beautiful You

After making yesterday's Beautiful You posting, I found this in my inbox and just had to CASE it.  I changed one little thing, but the original card comes from Lynn Dunn.  Thank you Lynn for your inspiration!

Lynn used Silver Glimmer paper where I used the blue stripe and her measurements are a bit different.

Night of Navy - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Floral Boutique Designer Series Paper (DSP) - 5 1/4" x 1 1/2"
Floral Boutique DSP (with the stripe) 5 1/4" x 1"
Whisper White - 3" x 2" - for stamped image
Whisper White - 3" x 3/4" - for sentiment, snip ends into a banner.  Add Rhinestones.
Attach half of a Lace Doily from the Occasions Catalog behind the Whisper White before adhering to the card.

Stamp the image onto the darker DSP with Basic Black or Black Memento Ink.  Carefully cut out the dress and hat with your paper snips.  I tried two ways, one inside the main lines so the extra lines show up in Navy outside the cut image and one outside the lines so all of the image is the "dress material".

Stamp the same image onto the Whisper White piece in Night of Navy.  Using liquid glue add the dress and the hat to the Whisper White image.  The liquid glue allows you to move it around a bit.

Thank you for looking in today!  Happy Wednesday!

  1. Oh these are fun too. I really don't know which one I like the best out of yesterday's and today's cards. The silver glimmer paper would be fun but I think I like the tailored stripe material look for your panel. The lace doily is another really fun touch too. Cutting inside the line or not, I really like both versions - one just looks a bit more artsy. I just might have to pull out that paper and play with it today! Who knows why I think I need to save it? What is next, coloring in the white pattern on her dress? Great job on these fun cards.

    1. Thanks Chris. I thought this one looks elegant, stylish while the other one is just fun! I think so many patterns of DSP would work with any of these stamps, all are perfect for Paper Piecing.

      You're like my best friend in Willcox. She saves paper too. It's too pretty to use. LOL. I've only had that problem with one of our papers, and that page I found a 12 x 12 frame and framed it! LOL

      Thank you so much for your support!

  2. Hopefully I don't go to that extent to frame a piece of DSP! One of my problems is that I order the pack thinking I was going to CASE something and then I forget about it. Yesterday I found a pack of DSP and I have no idea of what year it was. No idea of why I had it and it was like I had never seen any of the pack before on any project. Well, the color went with a card so I ripped it open and cut an envelope flap out of it and two small pieces to grace the inside of the card. Now, what to do with the rest of the pack? Maybe I will make more of the card, a sympathy card, and make more envelope flaps with the one sheet and little panels for the inside of the card. That would take care of one of the sheets!


    1. But it was such a pretty piece of paper. It looked like a beautiful field of flowers. I'll take a picture of it and show you. It's probably on my blog somewhere, if I could remember the name of it.
