A Rustle in the Wind Card - with a woven paper strip background

Hi there, Connie Nichol here today with a quick card featuring one of the new stamps at Quietfire Design, A Rustle in the Wind.  I was feeling very purple this past week.

I couldn't find a lot of purple ink in my stash so I stamped with a Tim Holtz distress ink and used Elizabeth Craft Design stitched circle dies to cut the circles.

For a background, I had lots of patterned paper leftovers, so decided to weave various strips together. This is easiest if you use a removable adhesive to tack down the ends of strips on one side directly on your work surface, then just run paper strips the other way over and under, over and under.  Trim to the appropriate size and tuck under your die cut circles.  It's a fun way to use up paper scraps.  

Here's the new stamp set.  It comes with four beautiful stamps.  I also stamped the fairy and cut her out to use as an extra embellishment tucked into the paper flowers.

Be sure to pop on over to the Quietfire Designs website and check out this and the other new stamps.  So pretty!!

Supplies Used:  Bazzill cardstock, SEI patterned paper, Quietfire Design Stamps, Ranger Ink, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L tape runner, Petaloo paper flowers.
