Life is in the Little Things

Happy Tuesday everyone,

My card today is my submission to Whiff of Joy Stamps' Guest Designer Call. As you can probably tell from some of my previous posts, I have fallen completely in love with these stamps and it would be a dream come true to be a guest designer for such a wonderful company. Click here to learn more about the Guest Designer Call.

Our task was to create a card using any of Katharina's sketches found on her fabulous blog. I chose sketch number 23, found here.

I inked up "Willow with Cookies" with Memento black ink and stamped her onto Georgia Pacific cardstock. I then colored her in with my copics. Next, I created my card base out of SU's Barely Banana (my card base measures 5 1/2 by 5 1/2). I then layered on top of that SU's Pretty in Pink. Next, I layered a strip of Barely Banana, followed by Pretty in Pink, followed by designer paper from Basic Grey. I then ran a pink ribbon, from Michael's, across the card base. I layered my Willow image onto Pretty in Pink followed by Barely Banana, and then adhered that onto the card base. I then stamped my sentiment, from Verve's Fairy Tales stamp set, onto Barely Banana and used SU's 1 3/8 circle punch to punch it out. I then used SU's scallop circle punch to punch out the scallop circle and adhered the sentiment to that. I then adhered the entire sentiment to the card base using dimensionals.

For some finishing touches, I added Primas and Martha Stewart pearls.

I would love to hear what you think. Thanks so much for stopping by. More tomorrow :)

Hugs, Chrisitne :)
