Hey there, thanks for stopping by today for my second installment of Sassy Inspiration.. ;)
This time I thought I would break out an older stamp that I hadn't inked up - Hippy Love, available HERE from Funky Kits. Isn't she gorgeous? She was a dream to colour (aren't they all?!) I love her hair - it's beautiful!
Some of you may know about the Facebook Group challenge that has been running all week - Squares from Scraps. This was the perfect challenge for a 'quilting' technique which can be done with paper with help from an intricate embossing folder.
Here is the card. A simple square Kraft cardbase which I have distressed using Frayed Burlap DI, I have also stamped a leaf design in Crumb Cake ink down one side. The 'quilted' area measures 3.75x3.75". I used a 1.25" square punch to ensure all squares were the same size and adhered them onto some standard thin computer paper to make one panel. I then put the panel in an embossing folder - Snow Cap by Sizzix for Basic Grey (okay, its a Christmas EF, but I won't tell if you don't..) and ran it through my CB. I then went over the raised surface with more Frayed Burlap DI and around the edges. I wrapped some SU! Old Olive taffeta ribbon around the panel and tied it in a bow - then adhered the whole lot at an angle to the cardbase.
I coloured Hippy Love using ProMarkers - if you would like a colour list, let me know - then fussy cut her out and placed on the 'quilted' panel. I custom made the stick pins to coordinate with the colours on the card and attatched them under the bow using glue dots.
I stamped the sentiment in SU! Old Olive ink with a mini alphabet set from Studio G, rounded the corner and added the smallest button I could find from Basic Grey. I then distressed the edges again using Frayed Burlap DI.
I hope this has inspired you today! :) Be sure to check back tomorrow for Tracey's inspiration post! xo Lou.
