A Fleuriste Newsprint


Fleuriste Newsprint by JustRite Stamps is a beautiful background stamp I have had for years and finally inked it up.  Yes my friends, un-inked stamps - guilty as charged!

The image was stamped in StazOn Stone Gray on Shimmery White paper.  I started sponging the background in Distress Shabby Shutters and then added VersaMagic Niagara Mist.  Nothing too fancy - I just went with it.

Butterflies were also stamped in StazOn Stone Gray and sponged in Brilliance Pearlescent Purple.  They were cut out by hand before adding Star Dust Stickles.

I wrapped some pretty orchid seam binding around the front of the card and made a triple loop bow.  A Stampin' Up antique brad accents the center.  These have always been one of my favorite items.

Here's a peek at the inside using the Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight die.  I stamped another coordinating butterfly.

If you ever have any questions about one of my creations, please feel free to email me.

Beautiful! I love all the details and sponging on this. I have many stamps who have never seen ink - shameful to say the least.

Oh, Donna! How incredibly gorgeous! Those colors look amazing together, but more -- all your elements combined are striking. It's lovely! And yes, I hang my head continually in shame regarding all the virginal stamps (and other supplies) in my stash. I am your newest follower, and if my techniques appeal to you, would love for you to follow me, too! hugs, de

Hi Donna,
Love your newest creation....such pretty colors and I always
love things that are french, they are just so lovely and
charming to me. Course, all your cards are beautiful..and I appreciate them as I know all the work that goes into designing them. I make cards to but do it on the computer.

Hope you and your kitties are doing well hon.

Thanks for dropping by to see me.....It was lovely to hear from you. Not many people leave comments these days, but I get it....too time consuming for me as well.
