Create with TLC BLOG HOP

Today we have a wonderful Blog Hop for you
with images of
If you hop along all the blogs,
you can get a free image on every blog
Just click on the image below
and save the image with
a right mouse click and safe as...

I am cooking up some fun cards for you
and also added a little tutorial!

This is the finished card with the free image.
You can use it on a recipe scrap book you make,
on your scrapbook pages,
or even on your recipe card.

I colored the image with copic markers, cut it to the
size I wanted and inkted the sides with vintage photo
distress ink and matted it first to the red and also to the
yellow paper.

These vellum flowers I made by hand
and here is the tutorial.

This are the supplies needed:
scallop punches or spellbinder
needle or craft pick
background stamp and ink
button, brad of paper circle

1. Cut out or punch the scalloped circles
For each flower I used 2 circles.
You can use more, but I did not want the flowers
to become to bulky

2. Because I use dark brown vellum I take white ink
to stamp with, also rub the sides.

3. Use pick to make the holes for the
floss (or waxed floss) to keep the
flower together.

4. Crumple the vellum and than straighten it again.

5. Thread the floss through 3 layers.

6. Finish the flower by knotting the floss and
mold the flower to your liking before adding it
to your card.

The sentiment for this card is from the set "Food for
thought" that you can find HERE.

I am sure you are hungry now for the other blogs
and see what delicious cards there is for you.

I used it to make a thank you card.

scrap papers from the dollar store,
a small piece of ribbon that just fitted and
some sticky gemstone snowflakes.
The sentiment is by Stampin'Up!

Stamping tip!
You might have noticed that I am not using all of the
Club Scrap stamp (Just want to say Hi),
so did I cut off part of the stamp?
Oh NO!!! I have a little trick to use
half of my stamp and this trick is called:

(click on the image to see everything larger)
1. get your stamp, ink and masking tape
2. cover the part that you do not want to stamp
3. ink up your stamp
4. take of the masking tape, before you actually stamp
5. stamp!
You can practice on a piece of scrap first.

Have a creative day!
