Hello Again!! I hope that everyone had a fun weekend of LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! And hopefully some crafty goodness as well!!
I'm coming to you LIVE from Maine this week!! Yep - it's school vacation and we're loving the snow, the fires and the downtime!!
But - we still have a Magically Marvelous Freebie for you today!! Lyla and her puppy are simply WAITING to be added to a card, project or scrapbook LO!! These digi stickers make for super quick creating as they are already colored in for you and help you start with a color palette!!
How cute!!!?!?!?! I love the colors as they forced me to think outside of my proverbial crafting box and reach for scraps that usually I would not! I printed Lyla out rather tall (one of the amazing properties of digi stamps and stickers is that you can make them virtually any size you want!) and trimmed her out. I then pulled out some SU! Old Olive cardstock, distressed and stitched the edges. I then, looking at my color palette, tied some SU! River Rock stitched ribbon and some bakery twine around the center. I chose a large scrap of SU! River Rock paper as my card base. Since it had been stuffed into my overflowing scrap drawer for GOODNESS knows how long, it was a bit...rumpled. So I decided to rumple it even more!! I crunched it up and distressed the edges.
I did the same with the red/ivory gingham check paper as well. I then ran my black ink pad over the check to antique it a bit.
I then created a panel using what I *think* is a scrap of SU! Purely Pomegranate with some flowery DP on it. I sewed the panel and then using my little half moon punch, created 2 layers of scalloping to add some dimension to this layer. I then created my first ever attempt at a paper flower. I think I need some practice but I am enjoying how it turned out!! I free hand cut some leaves to stick in around the flower. I added a button from my LSS to the center with some natural, linen twine from The Paper Source. I purposefully separated the layers of thread as I pulled it through the button holes to create the fluffy-ish center.
I hope you enjoy this freebie!!!
