I am back again today as a guest designer and blogger for Daisy. My name is MiMi Dibble and you can find my blog at THEscrapinator5000. I am super excited to be here today because I have a project for you that I dread doing on my own.
I made a card! Yes, I know that doesn't sound like any great feat to you but if you know me at all, you know I don't make cards, I don't like to make cards, I stink at making cards...seriously, I am not good at it. I am a scrapbooker so you'd think this should be no problem right? Wrong! If you saw some of the cards I have made, you'd be like...OY VEY! This woman needs help.
Well, that's where Daisy comes in. She's got sketches and digital papers...how much easier can it get. The only way this would have been any easier for me, would have been for her to come over and make it herself.
Today I used sketch # 25 from the I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose September 2012. I also used one of the new 8.5x11 Vintage Digital Printable Scrapbook Paper- "Banner Planks" - orange.
Items used from the shop:
I used the Banner Planks paper as the background for the front of the card. Remember, you can print this paper out as many times as you want. Bonus! I added some metalic peach card stock and a couple stips of lace that I layered and sewed together. The flower is painted book pages. I used 2 different colors of orange and a silver to paint the book pages. The layers were cut our using the Tim Holz die Tattered Florals. I finished the flower off with a ceramic peach rose right in the center. The banner I strung is an old shirt I stamped on and then ran through the sewing machine to bunch it up a bit. My sentiment is heat embossed and layer with foam tape onto the same metallic peach card stock under the flower.
Here are a couple of close ups of the card:
Daisy's sketch made it super simple and easy to put this card together (Click here to get your copy of September 2012 I Love Sketches by Tsunami Rose). I just love the Banner Planks paper. There are other colors including pink, purple, green, blue and black. There is even a combo pack where you get all six colors and the Wood Planks paper which coordinates perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you head over to the Zibbet Shop and take a look at all the beautiful scrapbooking paper.
