Need a fun card layout?


Hi all! It's March, which means PageMaps.com has a whole new array of fun-filled sketches to inspire you in your own crafting spaces! I got a chance to show off one idea over on the PageMaps site and so..... thought I'd share it all with YOU!

Ok.. here's the sketch!

And..... here's my creation!


This card is pretty simple if you see how I followed the sketch, pretty much to a T! I used Becky Fleck's brand new April Showers stamp that she created exclusively for Penny Black. After stamping on different decorative papers (a mix of Teresa Collins and Jillibean Soup), I cut out my image and had fun paper piecing as I went! The sentiment was stamped on a Spellbinders  Labels Six (love how this shape looks like a little cloud!) I embossed and sanded the image as well, revealing the papers white core. 

And,when I was done layering -- I cut my image out, along with the clouds, and popped it all up with some dimensionals. Add a little glitz with glitter and a little color with a white gel pen and... ta da!
