I'm here for you!

I just love the sentiments on the new Medallion 2014 stamp set. 
 I have been using them every chance I get (which is pretty frequently since I received them for my DT projects for FOSTV).  

For my inspiration card today's challenge:  

Use Tissue Paper, 

I kept it pretty Clean and Simple, you can follow along with my photo tutorial to see the steps I took to create this card.

Dollar Tree tissue paper

3 layers for this A2 card 

I didn't have any gold brads so I simply took what I had, and gave them a coat of FolkArt Metallic Antique Gold paint

I glued the tissue paper to the top layer using Tacky Glue which I diluted with some water 

I attached the two top layers together with my ATG
 I ended up not using the tag and the first stamp, realizing the sentiment was just "a little too big" - on to plan "B".
My die cut using left over boxes from my kitchen and the same Folk Art paint used on the brads

I folded the tissue paper about 4 or 5 times (didn't count) and punched small and large flowers with My Paper Studios punches

After punching a hole in the center, I attached the newly painted brads

The base for the sentiment block was covered in matching tissue paper

and attached with the diluted tacky glue.

The sentiment block was attached to the card base with foam tape and the flowers with hot glue.

Journaling with Tsunami Rose Designs Printable Papers and Kit

This 5 x 7 journal was made using the beautiful Parisian Daydream Printable Journal kit from Tsunami Rose Designs. It's so easy to embellish and design with these papers after simply downloading and printing them. I love that I can print as many copies as I need/want to layer my pages. I love the vibrant colors and all the flowers. When I receive the kit, I print all the pages and cut them out and just pick and choose from all of the empherma and journaling cards for each page.
