Stampotique Magical Mystery Tour!

Welcome to my stop on the Stampotique Mystery Tour, if you arrived here from Joanne's Blog, you are in the right place.  If you are just starting out here on my blog, you may want to jump back to the Stampotique Blog and start the tour from the beginning, be sure to leave comments as you visit the Designers Blogs, as there are TWO Mystery Prizes to be given away!

This weeks at the Stampotique Challenge Blog, Valerie is your hostess, and her challenge is to dig into your scrap pile and use 'em up, the more scraps, the better!  Why not play along with this weeks challenge using your Stampotique Images for a chance to win a $30 Stampotique GC, and a chance to be our August Guest Designer, click here for more details.

I don't know about you, but I have ton's of scraps of leftover pattern papers (and card stock), so I put them to good use by creating a Quilted Card.  The Quilt is created with MME papers and some coordinating Stampin' Up! card stock, I placed a Sheet of Scor-Tape on my grid sheet when forming the quilt, it was much easier than applying adhesive to each piece. I distressed the edges and embossed the quilt with the Damask Texture Fades Folder.

I stamped Olive Rose in Carmel on Vanilla card stock, then added this sentiment in Chocolate ink, and cut with Spellbinders Petite Oval, layering on Labels Twenty.  I created some rolled flowers by punching 1-3/8" circles from pattern paper, then cutting the circle to form a spiral and rolled with a Petal Roller and glued in place - this all from scraps!

Details:
Stamps - Stampotique
Ink - Chocolate
Card Stock - Sky, Tangerine, Chocolate, Kraft
Other - Spellbinders Dies, Pin, Petal Roller, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Scor-Tape, Big Shot, Texture Fades Folder, Sponge Dauber, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, My Minds Eye Pattern Paper, Seam Binding, Distress Tool

Thanks for stopping by, you next stop is the talented Gez Butterworth's Blog!  Remember, as you make your way through the tour be sure to leave a comment on all the Designers Blogs, because there will be 2 prize winners chosen randomly amongst the blogs. The tour ends on June 28th and the winners will be announced on the SDC Blog on June 29th.
