Hi friends. Joan, here today, with the Wednesday Great Impressions blog. I am half way though my March Guest Designer monthly spot and I had such a hard time narrowing down which image I would use for today's card. Have you checked out the Great Impressions online store?
Well, it was there, that I found Lizzy.
I first saw this stamp, I thought of all the occasions that I could use
her. Valentines, Birthday, Get Well, Mother's Day, well, you get the
Great Impressions Lizzy J109.
The sentiment is preprinted from a My Mind's Eye older calendar kit.
My card measures 5 x 6 1/2. I used My Minds Eye Lavender 6x6 paper pad for this project.
I started by choosing a patterned piece for Lizzy's dress. The yellow was girly and delicate.
I stamped her image on white cardstock twice (one for the whole image and one for the arm and flower) and once on the yellow to paper pieced the dress. Lizzy is fussy cut out and popped up. I colored her with my Copic and Spectrum Noir markers.
The clouds are a die from My Favorite Things.
I did some stitching around the panels. Use a Stampin Up die to cut the eyelet trim and topped it off with a dark red ribbon.
you have enjoyed seeing Lizzy in yellow today. I know that this stamp
will see a lot of ink in the future. Who knows, next time I may just
color her dress with markers.
Have you have had time to make a card or project for the Monthly Challenge "Going Green/ Recycle"? There is still plenty of time to submit your card.
Thanks for stopping by.
