Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo), Ranger Stickles (Cinnamon, Diamond), StazOn Archival Ink (Jet Black, Timber Brown) , Martha Stewart Cherish punch, Ranger Liquid Pearls (Opal White), Prismacolor Pencils (PC945, PC947), Ranger Tim Holtz Paper Distresser, x-acto knife, Copic (E57), pop dots, sewing machine

I absolutely LOVE how this layout turned out! I handmade the background paper using the branch and script stamps. I then cut it to fit inside the black punched cardstock and distressed and machine stitched it to the background. I wanted this layout to be elegant but masculine enough.

This is a wedding layout so of course I had to add roses! I stamped the buds 3 times. I colored, hand cut and layered the pieces to get a 3D bloom.

Here are the rest of the layered buds. I finished them off by adding Diamond stickles to make them sparkle.

I handmade the roses with the Bella Rose collection and added plenty of greenery because our wedding was outdoors.

I stamped the lattice background stamp twice onto brown cardstock with black archival ink. I distressed it with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo distress ink and then I fuzzy cut them with an X-acto knife. I layered them on the left side of the layout. I added a few leaves and tiny flowers to cover up the brown stamped leaves from the lattice.

I stamped a few butterflies from the Bella Rose Vintage Background PreCut Set stamp. I colored some areas with my copic marker and added platinum stickles over it. I also added liquid pearl dots randomly around the cluster.

For the title, I stamped the My Guy Precut Set on white cardstock. I fuzzy cut the title and colored it with Prismacolor pencils. i finished by adding Platinum stickles over the top.

Here is the step by step write-up for this layout:
To make the background paper, stamp the branch from the Bella Rose Vase PreCut Set as well as the Vintage Life Background Precut Set randomly over the green cardstock. Lightly distress with Vintage Photo around the corners. Punch out a black border and adhere to a white cardstock. Trim the green background to fit inside and distress the edges using Tim Holtz Paper Distresser. Machine stitch around the border. Stamp the Bella Rose Lattice Background PreCut Set  twice with black archival ink. Cut out with an x-acto knife and randomly add Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain distress ink to give it depth. Adhere to left side of the background. Cut a 7” wavy circle and distress the edges with Vintage Photo. Adhere to background a bit off centered and machine stitch around the edges. Die cut a Decorative Lace Border and cut it apart. Use only the bottom side and adhere over the circle. Mat you picture with black cardstock and place over the circle and border. For the buds, stamp them 3 times each onto cream colored cardstock with Antique Linen. Restamp the bottom side only with an archival brown ink to make the leaves stand out. Color the leaves with Peeled paint and hand cut the buds. Layer them using pop dots to give them some dimension. For the roses, stamp the  Botanical Floral 1 and 2 flowers unto cream cardstock with Antique Linen and die cut them using the matching die. Mold the petals and layer them to make the roses. Stamp and die cut leaves from the Botanical Floral 2 Set as well as a few flourishes from the Bella Rose Leaves PreCut Set. Adhere them to the left bottom corner of the picture as shown. Stamp a few tiny flowers from the Flirty Fleurs Precut Set and add them randomly around the cluster. Stamp the Bella Rose Vintage Background PreCut Set a few times and cut out the butterfly. Color some areas with a brown Copic to give them some color and add stickles to make them pop. Place randomly around the layout. Stamp, color and cut out the title from the My Guy Precut Set. Add under the picture. Finally, add tiny liquid pearl drops to the center of the small flowers and randomly around the cluster.
