Dreamy Blue Lady with Lynne Perrella and Blockhead Stamps

Hi Dreamers!
Missed you!  I was a bit busy over the weekend.  Spent a great day with my dear friend, Laurie.  Spent the day catching up and having a nice day!  So, now I am back and ready to get some blogging done.  Let's get all dreamy here in Dreamland today.  I have used a Lynne Perrella (Paper Artsy) stamp set that is available in the USA from Blockheads Paper Arts!

Materials List:
Pacific Queen Paper Artsy
Dream Sentiment-Verses Full Sheet from Blockheads
Tuxedo Black Memento; Faded Denim  and Spun Sugar Distress; Blue Pigment
Distress Stains: Faded Denim 
Clear Embossing Powder
Black Bakers Twine
CS: blue, white and black


  • Make a card  from blue CS and layer with black CS
  • On white CS, stamp the Lady with blue pigment ink and heat emboss with clear powder
  • Swipe the Distress Stain along the edges of the stamped piece
  • Add a little Spun Sugar Distress ink to the cheeks.  I just used my finger to apply the ink.

  • On White CS, stamp the banner from the Pacific Queen set with Tuxedo Black ink
  • Cut out the border
  • Stamp the word Dream with Faded Denim Distress ink on white CS and cut out in the shape of a banner flag; distress with the same ink
  • Add the banner to the card with dimensional adhesive
  • Glue a piece of bakers twine onto the banner
  • Stamp sun with Tuxedo Black ink and add with dimensional adhesive

I went a bit crazy on the inside of the card!  I think I can still write a short note if I use a black pen.  LOL

  • Stamp the Lady with Faded Denim stamping off once;  apply the Faded Denim to the edges.  
  • Stamp the suns with Tuxedo Black ink stamping off once
  • Layer with Black CS

  2. I am from the UK. I just started blogging about craft and saw you the image on the Paper Artsy blog. I love Lynne Perrella stamps too and I think what you have done with this card works so well, especially the banner and the twine. I like the sentiment too, if only we could spend more of life dreaming. Good luck with the Paper Artsy Challenge.
