Simon Says Stamp and Show.... Anything, but a card!!!

Good Morning!!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend we had a wonderful time celebrating Maoleidigh's 3rd birthday and a fun mother's day too ♥

so, let me bring you on the theme...

Stamp and show anything but a card! 

I have Constructed a notebook portfolio covered with the new Tim Holtz crowded attic Paper which makes a fabulous background for the dress form. I cut out using grungeboard, grungepaper for the skirt, coloured with distress ink and a little black paint dabber. 

The body is covered with Claudine Hellmuth's Sticky-Back Canvas. Inked with distress ink and adorned with a little prima lace, seam binding, acroutrement, and pins.

Added angel wings from glitter paper and canvas, embossed and inked. Then added a few layered flowers cut with vintage shabby paper using of course the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.

The inside I have added these cute envelopes for little notes etc and recovered a notebook using some of the fabulous crowded attic Paper. I secured a ribbon to hold a pen.

The button fastening is made from grungeboard and the holes are reinforced with eyelets... love that look, inked and then hand sewn in place!


Hope it inspires and why not pop round to be WOW'd by the rest of the team!!!
