Guest Designer – Diane Hover


Hello Blog readers — it’s time for another guest design spot here on the Cropstop blog. Today we’re sharing an absolutely  beautiful friendship card created by Diane Hover of  Nellie’s Nest.   Here’s what Diane says about putting this gorgeous card together:

“I made a bright and cheerful card today thinking as cold and dreary

as it is here in Michigan, it just might perk me up!

I started with a favorite product of mine

Ken Oliver Color Burst.

I first misted water on my card stock,

then tapped the bottles onto the wet card stock.

I added a bit more water to get a bit more design.

You want to be a bit light on the water, so you don’t end up ‘muddying” the colors.

Also a warning, these color bursts can be a bit addictive!

I used Lemon Yellow and Orange.

I then used a Poppystamps Velvet Blossoms die to cut out my flowers.

Once dry I did another fun trick to the flowers.

take a container, add some glue and a bit of water from your

water brush, stir it around then ‘flick’ it on your flowers,

then add Wow Glitter, I used Tangerine.

To finish the flowers I added Black Flower Soft to the centers.

I embossed a white card stock panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder,

added a Tim Holtz bird cage die cut

and Creative Expressions Finishing Touches  Petite  Vinery.

 The butterfly is from Memory Box

and the sentiment is Stampendous.

I added a bit of twine to finish.”

Poppystamps Velvet Blossoms die
