Scrapbook Page using Kind Thoughts Brocade Stencil
Hello and Good morning stampers!!!
The project that I am sharing with you all today, has a few steps to it so I will be sharing pictures of it over the next 2 days here. I joined a swap with a group of close friends, we each had to make a 8 1/2 x 8 1/2 scrapbook page all about us. Well that was a huge challenge for me to try to fit everything about me on that size! lol So what I did was create a piece that will open up so I had more space to add pictures and info about me!
I used colors that I love! I used Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss, Choc. Chip and Really Rust. Which were my wedding colors that I used. Just love these colors so much! I used one of my favorite stamp sets Friends 24-7 item #113218. I stamped the scroll image in Elegant Eggplant on Elegant Eggplant to give it a tone on tone affect. Then I took a piece of Mellow Moss card stock and using our Kind Thoughts Brocade Stencil I sponged Really Rust ink over it. I really loved how that worked! Then I took the Eyelet border punch to the one edge of the Mellow Moss. I cut a strip of Very Vanilla card stock and using the Jumbo Friendly Words Wheel I wheeled that in Mellow Moss across the Very Vanilla card stock then took a sponge and sponged really rust around the edges.
Now comes what I did for the ribbon! We don't have any really rust grosgrain so I took our Very Vanilla grosgrain ribbon and sponged Really Rust ink on it, let it dry and cut of the edges of the binding and pulled it apart to get that soft look instead. I did this with the Mellow Moss and the Elegant Eggplant. I took a little bit of each put it together and wrapped it around the Mellow Moss card stock. I know what your thinking Wowzier!! I loved how the ribbon turned out!! I added a strip of Choc. Chip card stock under the punched out eyelet strip and then at the top right hand corner of it I added in Vintage Brads. Then using my Big Shot item # 113439 and my Flower Daisies #2 die item# 114520 I cut out the daisies in Really Rust and Elegant Eggplant, then punched out the center in Very Vanilla with my 1/2 circle punch. I took our En Francis stamp item #109521 I stamped in the coordinating colors of the flowers so the Really Rust ones got stamped with the Really Rust ink and etc. I then put the flowers together and placed a vintage brad in the center. The last step I took my Color Spritzer Tool and my Choc. Chip marker and spritzed color all over the page. Then our engagement picture to the front. Hard to believe that next week is 3 years already since we got married!

Now this is the piece that opens up and on the inside is my list all about me! I printed it out on Very Vanilla card stock, stamped the scroll image from Friends 24-7 in Mellow Moss ink and then sponged the edges with Really Rust ink. I added strip of Elegant Eggplant behind it and then paper pierced the top and bottom edge of it also.Come back tomorrow to see the rest of this!!
