Listen to your Dreams

I couldn't resist this new Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Classics stamp.  The stamps create images that are like fine newsprint and stamp beautifully.    I also love my dream stamp, which another one by SA.

I started my card with a sheet of paper from the Bohemian range by Craftwork Cards.  I then stamped flourishes and the gothic windows.  The eye and mouth were stamped onto Lost & Found paper I added a little glitter to the corner of each using Copper Kettle and Golden Sparkle embossing powder.

I stamped my Dream centrepiece on another piece of Lost & Found paper and inked it up with distress.  I re-stamped it onto chipboard and cut out the 'D' which I also embossed in black.

I stuck the papers down and whizzed it under my sewing machine to add some further interest before fixing it to my card and adding the metal embellishments.  

I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Gingerloft Challenge GL49 - Stitching Real or Faux
Simon Stays Stamp - Glimmer & Sparkle


  1. I love cards like this- but never seem to be able to create them! The stamps are great- I love the sewing you added too.

  2. This is just fantastic! Love the sparkle you added to this cool card!

  3. Love the techniques and effects on this fantastic card Alexa. Brilliant.
    I also love your neck of the woods, Dorset is my most favourite county and I love Swanage particularly. I am only about 1 1/4 hours from you.
