So this month I was perusing Pintrest one of the happiest places on earth and I came across some adorable ideas on using take out box templates and thought this would be fun items to feature on my template Tuesday for July. so grab the template and have fun creating your own gift boxes.
So this month Gecko Galz has teamed up with the company with Wild Abandon and if you have never seen their amazing digital stamps you are sooooo missing out on some lovely works. For my samples I loved their background papers and Flights of fancy stamps and came up with these two amazing cards.
FLIGHTS OF FANCY CARD
for this card I used one of Gecko Galz beautiful Ever After papers as my card base then added the Fleur des Les strip from With Wild Abandon as well as their winged dress form digital stamp. I inked the stamped image using yellow, pink and orange inks from Distress inks. I tied a piece of hand dyed silk ribbon around the waist and layered a strip of pink chiffon rose trim down one side of the Fleur paper strip and down the other side I used my Viva pearl pen in cream to add pearl accents. Using pop dots I layered on my mannequin.
TAKE FLIGHT CARD
For this card I layered on a piece of paper from With Wild Abandon as well as their winged Marie Antoinette digital stamp. I also printed out the shabby chic frame from Gecko Galz fab frames collection and in photo shop I printed my sentiment "Take Flight". Using distress inks I inked Marie and the center of the frame and well as the outer edge of the card.
Then I added some amazing vintage fringe along the edge to give it that girly girl flair!
When I was a little girl I dreamed of being a prima ballerina, I mean what little girl didnt dream of wearing those fluffy white tutus and flying across the stage with the greatest of ease. But alas and alak I did not have the ankles to do toe shoes so I stuck with modern dance and jazz for 15 years. But I still have a soft spot in my heart every time I see a picture of a ballerina. I thought it would be nice to share some vintage ballerina images with all of you to use in your crafting. Have fun with them!

So one of my favorite things to do on Sunday morning is to lounge around in bed and travel the undiscoverd paths of Pinterest fining amazing new artist that I may have never seen before. Where some people like to read the Sunday paper, some like to curl up with a book...I find nothing more laid back and relaxing than perusing the many pages of Pintesreat. So I thought it might be fun to share with you this amazing artist I discovered Sveta Dorosheva. She does amazing black and white (as well as color) works that make amazing digi stamp images to use on cards so I thought I would share some of her work and if you get a moment in your day go take a peek at her amazing works on Pinterest!
