OK, I guess this project was one that I wanted to do a sneak peak for because it was something I have not yet attempted. I do not make many projects aside from cards ((that I have shared here anyway)). It was new and unfamiliar, but I was so happy with the way it was coming along I wanted to do a sneak peak :o). It is complete now and I am so excited to share it with you. I made this for my sisters friend whose daughter had a baby. ((does that even make sense??)) HA! Well, with her being a new grandma and seeing the pics of this sweet angel, I was inspired to make this for her. It is a surprise, she has no idea I am making it. I have never even met this lady! HA! OK, back to the project. I used my huggabuggs from stamping bella for this project. Twinkle Toes and Flutterby are just perfect for this don't you think?!?! They are so sweet! I cut the letters out with my cricut. The paper was a RAK from my friend Cass that I had been holding on to for a while. I used my cricut design studio to elongate the base shape ((otherwise it would have been more square. I used the leftover paper as a template, drew and cut out the shape from a heavy chipboard. ((that was HARD!!! to get straight!)) I then cut out the cream and the pink border from the design studio. I decided the plain cream cardstock would not be enough for me. I used mod podge and added some cream mulberry paper to my cardstock base. Then I used a glitter gel paint and brushed it over top of that. After it dried ...((have I mentioned how impatient I am. I did speed it up by drying it with my heat gun every once ina while))... I then ran it through my paisley cb folder from each side. It smooshed the middle, but the ribbon hid it well and added a sweet touch to it I think. I then began layering the letters and the paper pieced huggabuggs. My cropadile was the perfect tool to punch the holes for the lace to go through. It took me a while to make but I am so happy with the result. I do hope you like it too. Have a wonderful day. God Bless!!!
I am also submitting this project to the stamp something friday challenge. I just remembered that this would qualify :o) YAY! Again, have a beautiful day. The sun is shining and God is so good. What more could we ask for?
