Faux Corset idea....

Everything is Blooming is the set I've used here for this simply stamped card. I finally took a few minutes to create something different while I was making a few more graduations money cards that I needed. (see tutorial here) I used my favorite SWIC TAC paper line called Mimi although my cell phone photos are lacking the brilliant colors. I was inspired by a card I received for my birthday here using eyelets and ribbon to create a Faux Corset look on the side of the card. I added some Lemondade Buttons and Blossoms available from TAC with stickels as well.

I have cropped in here so you can see the details of the ribbon, blossoms and
buttons and the stickles. I used prisma
watercolor pencils and paper piecing to
color the image.

Question: Why can I no longer get my photos and words neatly placed on my blog? haha

Next, here are a few more simply stamped graduation money holders that I did for several family members that are graduating High School this year. As previously stated, you can see this tutorial for these cards under my tutorials.

Here is a close up of a cut out had that I popped dotted and strung a tassel through! I thought it added just a special something to the creations. The color of inks I've used match the school colors.

I hope these help inspire you with just a bit of added touches.
TIP: When your out shopping look at how you can use things differently as these tassels.
Until next time....Happy Stamping
