I must admit... I am a slow card maker. Even though I tend to keep my creations super simple, it is not an easy or a simple process for me. I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist and spend a lot of time thinking about the placements and layouts before I'm happy with the end result and permanently attach everything. It drives me a little crazy sometimes. Lol!
Yesterday, I had mentioned how my friend Kim Wilson was coming over to share her Lawn Fawn stamps with me. We hung out for a few hours but, at the end I only completed two cards. One I am sharing today and the other (a single layer card) I will share another day. The Lawn Fawn stamps are so much fun, I could have played for many more hours! The images are just adorable and I love how the sentiments coordinate so perfectly.
The majority of the time was spent on this card... Isn't this dress form, from Sew Lovely, just so cute! I paper pieced the dress using Hibiscus Burst cardstock for the top and white cardstock, stamped with flowers (from the same set) in Hibiscus Burst ink, for the skirt. Embellished the dress with a white silk ribbon bow. Cut slits on either side of the dress, threaded the ribbon through and tied onto a tiny bow.
I am loving this color combo! Using a gradient color scheme has become one of my favorite things to do lately. For this card I used Sweet Blush, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz and Kraft. The Sweet Blush panel was stamped with polka dots from Polka Dot Basics II and the Raspberry Fizz strip was stamped again with the flowers from Sew Lovely, both in Versamark ink. Finished it off with a gorgeous sentiment (love, love, love that font!) and True Black buttons.
Hope you all are ready for the weekend! Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy the card as much as I have enjoyed these Lawn Fawn stamps!
