Paper Tole Time at The Stamp Spot




For The Stamp Spot this month Marcia sent each of her DT a stamp to use for inspiration this month. I received this cute Rachelle Anne Miller stamp - Lily:Magic Fairy. I've decided my challenge with this cutie is to see how many different techniques I can come up with - this week I've paper toled her. I love the this look as it gives the image a more 3D effect - an effect I've added to by using a paper flower in her hair.



I based my colour scheme around some gorgeous Basic Grey DP I bought from The Stamp Spot Online Store. It's from the Indian Summer Paper Pad - and I love the fact that the scale in these paper pads is reduced - it works perfectly for cards! The whole range is gorgeous though - I had trouble deciding which one to use!!! I've used this week's Mojo Monday sketch - I love their sketches but very rarely find time to get a card entered - so this will be a first for me!! The Flowers are layered Kaisercraft flowers (available at TSS Store) - something I've been playing with recently - I love layered flowers! The sentiment is a digital ticket from Bizzy Bec's Digital Store. All CS is from Stampin' Up.

Just don't forget to see what fabulous things the other The Stamp Spot DT girls get up too with their stamps - and check back next Wednesday to see what I've come up with for mine!

Hello dear friend! Yes, it's me... long lost Lisa! What a cute card to start out with (I'm reading your blog posts backwards, obviously). I LOVE paper tole. Why don't I do that more often? You've inspired me, as you always do.

Now on to see what else I've missed...

OK, you must be having lots of time to craft or I'm just super slow in catching up on my blogging! LOVE all this amazing eye candy and sweet inspiration you have been doing. Great take on the Mojo Challenge, and the layers on your image are darling!

LOVE the Indian Summer DP too, I have the same! SMILES... :)
