I have had the stamp for a while and was dying to get it out and create a card with it. It was so much fun creating all the layers with my die cuts and I absolutely love the stamp! I coloured the stamped image once again with my Copic Sketch markers onto Copic paper and "fussy" cut out the image. Then came the fun part of designing the background. The "grass" paper is called "pretty please" from the Neapolitan Collection by Dear Lizzy. I used my Die-namics "snow drift" die from MFT to make the hills. I edged the grass hills with memento ink in the colour pear tart to make the hills stand out a bit. I cut out the flower border and then layered another cut out of the same die to create the different coloured flowers. Layering the grass over top of the flowers completed the bottom of the card. The cloud paper in the background is from My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad called "charm". I cut out a fence and tree from metal dies to complete the top half of the card. I glued everything onto a 6x6" card I made from white cardstock. Using some pop dots I adhered the image to hang from the tree, added a cute sentiment and presto another finished card!

Guess what????….. I finally filmed a video of me making a "Book Card". I am just in the process of trying to edit it and then hopefully I can figure out how to upload it here and onto you tube. Wish me luck!
Chat at you later,
