Pinterest Inspired Creation

The June challenge for Dreamweaver Stencils is to use something on Pinterest to inspire you.  This can be inspiration from a card, room color, picture, quote, etc.  The only requirement is that it was something from Pinterest!  Today, I used a card idea that I found a couple of weeks ago.  To see the card I saw, Click Here.  I thought that the frame she made was so neat!  I had some of the the 2 in 1 border punches from EK Success, so I thought that would be perfect for this card.  I started out by cutting the purple cardstock 5 1/4" square.  Then I set the punch at the #1 setting (which cuts out the entire heart chain shape).  I punched the middle of two ends of the paper.  Then I flipped the paper over and lined up the edge of the punch to the edge of the card.  Then I moved the punch about 1/8" in so the cut wasn't to the end of the paper.  Once the first one is cut, line up the edge of the punch with the last punch.  Again I lined it up on the back side of the punch so I could see clearly where the punch would be made.  Then repeat on the opposite side.  Now I have a border with a solid purple square in the center of the frame.  I then used the small violet stencil for my image.  I first measured the purple center, then cut my white piece 1/4" smaller.  So if the center was 2 3/4", then cut the white paper 2 1/2" square.  I used Black glossy paste over then stencil.  Once the paste was dry, I placed the clean stencil back over the image.  I used the Pallete Stamp and Stick Glue Pad and daubed ink over the paste.  Then I used the 1/4" Stencil brush and brushed on some F/X powder over the violets.  Then I popped up the violets in the center of the frame, matted the frame and layered it onto a card. Hope this inspired you today! Be sure to see what the Dream Team has done for you this week too.

I'm hoping that you'll actually get this comment. Beautiful inspiration piece, but I love yours even more, down to the tiny liquid (?) pearls.
