Loyal Friends

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much”
― Helen Keller

Hi everyone, I am so happy to be a guest designer for {my sweet earth} today. I just love all the projects I see over here by the fabulous design team, so it thrills me to be among such wonderful talented ladies!

 I adore the papers and stamps by Susan K. Weckesser, which have a delightful, whimsical mixed media look to them in bright cheery colors! Plus they are made from 100% recycled paper made in the USA! Bonus!

This is my card that I created:

I love this Unity Stamp by Susan called Insta-Cute. I admit I am addicted to all stamps that include cameras and Polaroid frames but these red rubber stamps are large, which is just awesome to work with! I stamped the frame onto the Live, Love, Create paper and then cut the inside out and glued it over the top of the Bouquet paper with the bird on it. Perfect fit.

Two of my favorite things to do are outlining and fussy cutting. The outlining just makes everything pop and by cutting out my pieces I get to create some fantastic layering and dimension.

The only thing left to do is assemble everything together and add a few finishing touches like Helmar's Liquid Scrap Dots to give the butterfly wings dimension and Rangers Liquid Pearls to embellish the frame.

Then I used the Crafters Workshop Live in Color stencil to create a fun border on my envelope along with the smile sentiment from the  Insta-Cute stamp, I think a little mail art is fun for everyone: recipient and postal carrier alike!!

I hope you enjoyed my post as much as I enjoyed being here!
