I am loving all of the adorable banner images that are coming out lately and when I saw this stamp set from American Crafts with lanterns on a wire, it made me think of a banner only with a twist and I couldn't wait to ink it up and play with it.
I decided to make a CAS card, which is actually more difficult for me than making a card with lots of layers. I tend to gravitate toward more patterned paper and less white space and loads of layers, but I enjoyed deviating from my usual style and going with something more clean and simple. I did add some stickles for a faux glass look and some liquid pearls for the hardware that connects the lanterns to the wire, which doesn't come out real well in the photo, but came out really realistic in person.
I absolutely love the new Stella and Rose collections from My Minds Eye. I can't get enough of it. To be totally honest, I can't get enough paper in general and really, really need to use every sheet in my craft space before I buy another sheet but I'm afraid I'm just too weak. I just love pretty paper!
