Stamp Simply "Lovely Lace"

It's Friday, and that means it's time to 'Stamp Simply'. Today we are focusing on using:
Lovely Lace (ssnotime98) - Today’s challenge is to incorporate lace into your work. It can be real lace, punched lace, stamped lace, sticker lace — anything at all - as long as we have lace to grace our creation! That’s it - have fun!!!
Please be sure to stop by the blogs of the Stamp Simply Challenge Team, and check out their beautiful lacy creations:
Stamps: Beautiful You (Verve)
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, White, Whisper Collection (Prima)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger)
Accessories: Labels Two Nestabilites, Eyelet Border punch, Prima Lace & Flower, Fresh Favorites Button (SU), Tan Scrapper's Floss (Karen Foster), Scotch Foam Tape, Scor-Tape, Scor Pal, Stix 2 Adhesive Punch Sheet


I followed the Fan Fold Flower Tutorial by Bonnie Szwalkiewicz at SCS to make my flower, and also watched Beate's video. Both are wonderful!

I used a sentiment from Beautiful You (Verve), and my Prima Whisper Collection pack from Jacksonbelle Embellishments (purchased a while ago) to create my card!! The collection is so pretty, and the flowers and lace are included!


In non-stamping news....we have been super busy around the house, so I haven't had much time on the computer at all. We are getting ready to replace some windows, a slider door, our roof, and siding, and we'll probably replace our deck with a patio as well. I can see some major chaos in our very near future, but I plan to create as often as I can (stress reliever). I may turn off comments, but I hope you'll still come and take a peek. I know I will be checking your creations via my Reader, as much as I can...as I am so inspired by all of you!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Hang in there Rose Ann! I know those projects are stressful but there is NOTHING like sitting back when it is all done and saying ... WOW... we did it! On the flip side, I love your creation! I haven't made any of those flowers yet but they sure are lovely!

This is beautiful, Rose Ann! I love the way you chose to use the lace as upper and lower borders. I certainly understand how difficult it is to fit blogging and stamping in with all the other jobs you mentioned. Funny, we're in the process of replacing the patio with a deck. Also rebricked the chimney and the front steps, getting the driveway resurfaced, lots of garden do-overs. Summer is a busy time!

Very Vintage! Love it!!!

Bethany Paull said...
