Guest Designer – Maya

By | July 12, 2015

I’ve had a great time the last few days as my brother and his family have been visiting. Saturday we shopped, swam and went to the see Pittsburgh Pirates play the St Louis Cardinals. It was a great win for the Pirates in extra innings!

This morning my niece Maya and I worked on a card for her to put together and for me to put on my blog today as a guest designer.

Today’s card was designed and made by my niece Maya who is here visiting from New Jersey for a few days with my brother and his family. She really liked the butterflies from the Watercolor Wings and various butterfly framelit/thinlits, so it only made sense that the card she made for me to feature on my blog today had butterflies.

Here is a picture of her stamping the sentiment from the Birthday Blossoms stamp set in Chocolate Chip ink on Mint Macaron. The end has a banner cut and is adhered with liquid glue on the left and a dimensional on the right.

First we worked on the butterflies, she picked Mint Macaron, Lost Lagoon & Island Indigo for the ink colors and we used the Watercolor Wings stamp set. Next we used the Bold Butterflies Framelits & Butterflies Thinlits to die cut the top butterflies in Mint Macaron (small) and Night of Navy (large). Maya wanted a wood grain look for the background so I thought of a piece of the new Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper in Tip Top Taupe, we cut it to size and she used a sponge dauber and Tip Top Taupe (TTT) to add color and depth to the paper. The card base is actually Whisper White cut to 4 ¼” x 11″ and scored at 5 ½” for a top folding card. The TTT was adhered to the right side of the card and a piece of Daffodil Delight was cut and run through the Big Shot using the Fluttering Textured Impressions embossing folder. The Daffodil Delight was adhered with dimensionals and a piece of vintage Champagne Glimmer paper acts as an accent. The butterflies were adhered with dimensional and a string of pearls finishes them off.
