Vintage Style Gift Card Holder - Edgar and Molly

I have been watching a few Live videos on 7 Kids Crafts Facebook Group
Friday nights are fun and quick with DT Marcia!
Her last video showed how to make a folder.
She showed how to make a larger folder and then gave measurements
for smaller folders.  I chose to make a "gift card" size.
Check out her video here for instructions:


I am using Stamping Bella - Edgar and Molly Vintage Flower Set
I love this set.
How i made this cute cover:
Digital Paper makes a great foundation for creating with stamps and coloring with Prismacolor pencils. Here is an example of what you can do.
I have stamped the rose from Stamping Bella - Edgar and Molly Flower Set onto We Are 3 Digital Paper - Dreamy Creamy.
Then i colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.
Next i stamped the little girl and dog onto white card stock and colored them in with Prismacolor pencil also (Copic colored skin). I left the bows and the dress uncolored and stamped them onto We Are 3 Digital Paper - Kerst Christmas.
I "fussy" stamped the dress to get that part of the design from the digital paper. Then i used the Prismacolor pencils to shade the paper pieced dress and bows.

Lavinia Stamps and a Canvas Bag

Hello everyone and happy Thursday!! 
It’s time for a new Lavinia World Challenge featuring Lavinia stamps.
          We are a bi-weekly Challenge Blog and the theme will be Anything Goes using stamps
(either rubber or clear, but no digi stamps). 
                               Details are found under the "rules" tab on the Challenge Blog.

Something New!
Beginning with Lavinia Challenge #14, 
our NEW Anything Lavinia Facebook group (click here
is also a place where you may post your cards/projects 
to enter our Lavinia World Challenges. 
Your projects are anything goes if added to the Challenge Blog,  
however your card/project must include anything Lavinia (stamps, papers)
if added to the Anything Lavinia Facebook group. 


For my project, I used
The stamp was stamped with VersaFine Clair - Nocturne

I wanted to do something different for this challenge. I had seen a beautiful butterfly on a canvas bag on facebook and i thought, i think i can create that idea using this gorgeous Lavinia Stamp.
What you need to know is this is an extra large butterfly/moth.  It measures about 5" tall with a wing span of 4.5". 
Also canvas has raised threads so you will not get a solid inked image.  It's cool though.
I used a Misti platform for this but not in the way you are suppose to use a Misti.
The canvas bag with a zipper doesn't lay flat to stamp inside of a Misti.  So i taped the bag to my work space and then i used the Misti acrylic "block" top backwards.  
So instead of the top folding in, i had it fold/swing out.
You are going to think, "how is that different than just using an acrylic block", right?  Well, i taped the base of Misti down also so it couldn't move, but i could still use the top and i could re-stamp two times without anything moving.  yay!
Now that is was stamped.. it looked cool without coloring it, but i chose to try a few things.
First i used Oxide inks as watercolors, by stamping my work base with the ink and adding water.  The center of the moth/butterfly was more solid than i wanted, so i started to use a lighter color for the wings.  I tried Copics on the outside of the wings, but i am not sure that the VersaFine Clair ink is compatible to the nibs of the Copics.  So i used Prismacolor pencils for the highlights.  As it turns out, Oxide ink and Prismacolor pencils are my choice of mediums.
I used Oxide ink around the butterfly/moth as well.
I used my heat gun to make sure it was dry and i started randomly embroidering around the moth/butterfly.
This bag will be a fun to use for a quick on the go bag...for walks etc.
