If I Missed You Enough...

Would this bring you home?It's a suitcase, with a map of land and sea, so you can get your bearings. When you get closer, the little flower, which you can learn to make here, is a map you can use to find me.Stamps: Stampin' Up Old World Map Ink: Chocolate Chip Paper: Kraft, old atlas
Accessories: Big Shot & Bigz Box #2 die, Scallop Punch, Brad

Who needs a Tom Tom or Magellan, when there is such beauty in these paper routes?

Shimmery Russian Trees

I love my used Russian dictionary so much it's hard for me to use big pieces of it, so I went small with this one, but did something very fun for this week's 2S4Y.

First, I took a piece of the page and painted some Stampin' Up! shimmer paint on part of my dictionary page. It was sooo beautiful and didn't obscure the print, just made it all silvery and frosty.LOVE this look.

Then I took the three little trees fromDoodle Factory Into the Woods and stamped them on my silvery text and cut the tops out so I could paper piece them.

The rest of the card is made with specialty Stampin' Up! brushed metallic cardstock, Basic Grey patterned paper, a Stampin' Up! rubon, punches and ribbon.
Stamps: Doodle Factory Into the Woods, Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Paper: Basic Grey, Stampin' Up!
: Eyelet Border Punch, dimensionals, Square and Round punches

One of the things I really like about the DF images is the amount of white space they have - great for filling with patterned paper or security envelopes or book pages. Perfect reanimation stamps!!

Hope you're having a great Tuesday!
