This has been a really nice weekend. Do you remember months ago when I said I was working on my craft room? Well, I have been struggling to get it back in order. Over the holidays I had to just stuff everything back in and then pulled it all back out and most of it has been piled up in my living room. What a mess plus it is really hard to create when you can’t find anything. This weekend I spent most of my time working on putting it back. It is still a bit of a mess but I am feeling much better about it. One more good weekend and I might be back on track.
I did get a chance to go up to the mountains and play with my friend, Bonnie, and finished this card. I used Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Dani’s Umbrella. It is stamped with Stazon ink and cut it out with a Spellbinders’ die. The dress, butterfly, and all the flowers are paper piecing. I shaded them a little with marker and added Lacy Lilac glitter. I added Sun Dazzle Sparkle N Soft to the centers of each flower. The small flower is Tiny Daisy and both of these were popped up with foam tape.
I made the pink medallion using a die and sponged the edges with purple ink and a green jewel flower. I used a purple marker directly on the sentiment, Flutter Birthday, so I could stamp the each word separately. I punched them out with a tag punch and tucked them under the jewel flower with some curling ribbon.
Bonnie taught us a really neat technique today so check back on Tuesday to see what we created.
