Hello everyone! And welcome to the My Creative Time ~ 32nd Edition Stamp & Die Release. You should have arrived here from Liz's Blog, if not - then make sure you head back to My Creative Time so you can start at the beginning with Emma. You definitely do not want to miss a thing!!!
For my project today, I am featuring the brand new Stripey Background, Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies and Live, Love Laugh & Be Happy.
As you can see, I branched out into something a little different today and made a Home Decor piece. My sister moved back home to Arizona a few weeks back. And since the last couple of years have been a little rough, I wanted to make an inspirational piece for her to put in her room. All of the different elements have special meaning. I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. I think it's my most favorite gift I have ever made!!!
To start with, I used the MCT ~ Stripey Background in the upper left and lower right corners. But I only stamped part of the background because I wanted to make them kinda look like piano keys. The "Spread your wings and fly!" sentiment is from the MCT ~ Live, Love, Laugh & Be Happy. If you look closely, you can also see the little hearts in the corner. I used the MCT ~ 4x4 Journal Die & More to cut those.
To cut the word "believe" I used the MCT ~ Lowercase Fun Dies. I cut them in a soft gray cardstock from Paper Trey Ink. I just wanted a "hint" of the word, kinda so you could see it, but it wasn't the focal point.
Next, and my favorite part, the beautiful beautiful butterflies. I cut those with the smallest die in the MCT ~ Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies. Now...the cool part...to get the perfect color (to match the wall color in her bedroom), I went to the paint store and grabbed a couple of those paint sample thingies. That's how I got the graduated colors...I think they call that "ombre". The tedious part...adding all of those tiny little pearls, but it was sooo worth it.
And the best part....my sister LOVED it!!!! :) Doesn't it match her room perfectly??? Love it!!! Ok, now for the good stuff:
