Your Smile is Beautiful!

Happy Friday!!  Stacy here again this week to share ANOTHER project using the gorgeous new Art Kure Flower stamps.  I'm loving them so much that I just had to make another layout using the Art Kure English Rose stamp.

This time I used the large English Rose stamp set.  I just love that these stamps come in two sizes.  It just opens up so many scrappy possibilities.  I opened up my Word program and printed out these black frames on white card stock.  Next I stamped the English Rose stamp in the center of each frame using a different colored ink with each one.

I am taking an online class at Big Picture Classes right now and they are sending me a sketch a day.  I used the sketch from Day 1 as a starting off point.  I find using a sketch to be such a help.  Sometimes I only use a portion of the sketch or I turn it.  Or maybe I will trade out shapes.  Sometimes I am inspired to scrap just by seeing a cool sketch.  Do you use sketches as a starting point?

Next on my layout I layered some patterned paper scraps that I had sitting on my scrap desk from a card I just made.  I used an edge punch along the edge of one of the papers and layered it with the other pattern papers.  I'm obsessed with stapling ribbon on my layouts so I had to do it on here too.

My mother complains because she thinks I am cheating when I staple but I love the look so I keep on doing it!   I think it is funny that she complains since she is the person who bought me this ridiculously big awesome stapler!! LOL

I think it is one of my favorite things she has ever gotten me!!  (and she gets me good stuff!! LOL) 

To add a bit of sparkle and texture I pulled out some Glimmer Mist in Turquoise Blue and Aquamarine and splattered it on the base card stock.  I should have mentioned this first because I did it first!  Sorry.  ha  I just opened up the bottle and flicked the mist right off the end of the tube onto the paper.

Next I pulled some alphas and a rub on from my stash to make my title.  I finished up by finding a vellum quote and attaching it with some brads.  Oh I guess I shouldn't forget that tiny flower in the title.  Ha!  It was also from my stash.  Voila! 

Now that my creative juices are flowing, I think I will go and see what else I can make with these stamps!!

Thanks for stopping by and looking.  Have a fantastic weekend.

Until next time...happy scrapping!

Really nice page-I like the colorful flowers on either side of the "Beautiful Smile". Staples are fun and colored ones are even better!
