Love to Create Guest Designer

Today DigiDarlaDesigns is sponsoring Love to Create  and Love to Create has chosen me as this week's guest designer! The challenge is "The colors of summer."


Although this card is mostly blue, doesn't is just scream Summer? The image is "butterfly wonder" and I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and OMS along with Copics. Then I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities die to cut and stencil the image. I used a new Martha Stewart "lace daisies" edge punch. I love adding dimension by adding sewing machine stitching. The tri-color embossed distress paper is actually a paint color card from Home Depot! Who'da thunk? I recently found a Fiskars cloud punch on sale and just had to have it. The cute face stamp is from Peachy Keen. The grosgrain ribbon is from my stash as are the blue "Skittles." The metal sentiment is from Making Memories. I added dimension to the card by adding foam dots to the cloud and the image. Finally I added a little sparkle by using Stickles on the grass and using Copic Spica glitter pens to the hair bows and overalls hardware and added a butterfly punched with a Martha Stewart punch out of glitter paper.
