Your Next Stamp & Craft us Crazy


I'm honored to be guest designing for Craft Us Crazy on behalf of Your Next Stamp who is a sponsor of the current challenge...
~ Mom's and Flowers ~  

Now you aren't required to incorporate both themes for the challenge to enter, but I was able to by using this happy little flower, Dixie Daisy.  This image was part of the March YNS release and I LOVE it and couldn't wait to create with it!!  I've used DP from My Mind's Eye, Fine and Dandy which begged to be paired with kraft cardstock.  The kraft cardstock was embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder.   The paper panels were all machine stitched and I used tiny champagne colored heart rhinestones for a simple yet sparkly accent.  The jumbo sized ric rac was made using Papertrey Ink's die and cream colored felt.  The image was stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock and for fun I stamped the image again and popped the eyes up with foam tape for dimension.  The petals were given a sparkle treatment by using my mixture of Shimmerz and Stickles. 


 Craft us Crazy is owned and operated by my dear friend Jeri, so this a real treat for me to be designing along with her and her very talented design team.   I hope you will stop by the Craft us Crazy challenge blog and link up your Mother's Day and/or Flower project for your chance to win a $10 Your Next Stamp Gift Certificate.



Thanks for stopping by today!!

So cute Wendy!!! I dare someone to try not to smile at this one:) I love the papers you used an all that shimmer.

Paula said...

Your pairing these papers with the Kraft is spot on - the colours just bounce off each other. The eyes are just fun & with your colouring make the image just come alive.
