Rue Des Fleurs

Sharon's been keeping me entertained.... look at this elegant journal she made using the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set with a vintage theme!!

 The front journal was stamped with the watch/umbrella, masked, and stamped again using the En Francais large background stamp and crumb cake ink.

 Tiny, clear rhinestones were added to the umbrella and watch fobs.


 A butterfly from the Kindness Matters Stamp Set was colored and attached to the focal image / tag using a dimensional.


  Two paper daisies were layered together (one was downsized by overlapping three petals and gluing in place).  A new 8mm pearl was affixed to the center of the top most daisy, and ribbon ‘leaves’ were created from always artichoke seam binding, pulling a thread in the middle of the ribbon to evenly gather and scrunch.


 The edges of crumb cake card stock were distressed, and after layering the tag onto crumb cake and pear pizzazz card stock, she punched a hole using a crop-a-dile tool and layered vintage lace, un-pleated ribbon, and narrow grosgrain to form a tag ‘pull’.


 Friend was stamped using early espresso ink, and punched using the designer label punch.  After sponging with lucky limeade ink, additional accents were added with a marker to match the early espresso ink.


 One of the coolest things about this journal is the gusseted pocket inside the front cover!!  Front, back and inside flaps of the journal were covered with confetti cream card stock and sponged with lucky limeade ink too.

Just too darling to give away...
but what good would that do....
if we care we must share!!!
