Time for another guest design post here on the Cropstop blog. Today we have a super cute (and FUN!!) card from my sweet friend Cheri Weston of Stamp’n Boomer.
Here’s what Cheri says about creating this adorable Valentine card: “Today is a exciting day for me, I’ve been asked my my crafting friend, Esther Asbury to be a guest designer for CropStop, a fabulous one-stop shopping place for many brands for papercrafters.
I positioned my chosen birds on my MISTI stamp positioner where I wanted them to be on the panel. After stamping them with Memento black ink, I colored them with Copic Markers. Once the coloring was done, I positioned the coordinating die over each bird and die cut them out. I then trimmed the panel with a stitched border die from My Favorite Things and replaced the birds into the negative space on the panel. This gives a lot of dimension to the individual birds. I added a MFT heart balloon die, which was cut out of hot pink card stock multiple times and stacked on top of each other. For a final touch of dimension I added Glossy Accents to the eyes. The sentiment, hearts and little bouquet are all from the Stampers Anonymous “Things/Talk” from Tim Holtz.
Thank you for asking me to be a guest designer for CropStop blog. I’ll be back next week with another project for you.”
