Paper Sundaes Design Team Call

Paper Sundaes has opened up their Design Team call. They've asked that applicants feature three projects in a blog post. I am reposting some cards that I have made recently. The first is an image from Elisabeth Bell.

I thought this stamp was so cute! The papers are digis from Sherry K Designs. The ribbon is from Wal-Mart. I used a Fiskar's Scalloped Border Punch. You can find the flower tutorial at Crafty Sisters. The centers were made using my new I-Top that I won from Frosted Designs. I really love this tool. It is so easy to customize my flower centers. For these flowers I used brown polka dotted paper with gold tulle over the top to match the tulle in the flower layers. I used small and medium I-Top brads.

Next up is an image from By Lori Designs. Her images are adorable! This little girl is a Puddle Jumper and comes in a set of three girls: Shelby, Quinn & Daisy. Shelby is attached using dimensionals which is hard to see in the picture. The challenge at By Lori Designs is a color challenge and you will see the colors listed below. The darker pink polka dot paper came from my stash and the light pink polka dots came from SKhedr Designs and is a from a digital pack called Breeze Mega Paper Pack. She has several coordinating paper packs that I am really enjoying. I used a scalloped border punch from Fiskars (that I accidentally put on the wrong side for the sketch).

I experimented with a new flower and you can find the tutorial over at Mel Stampz. It took a little longer to make, but I love the end result. I simply freehanded my petals and used pink cardstock. I did not add any dyes as the tutorial shows. The ribbon I used was salvaged from a gift sack and the centers are pink rhinestone brads.

The flower on this card is a burnt edges flower. Quite fun! I actually only had white fabric, so I colored it with my ProMarkers. The image is from Bugaboo - Ava Flower. The patterned paper is hard to see. It's a yellow paisley from Colorbok. The solid papers are from my stash. The pink paper is embossed with swirls. The yellow ribbon over the lace is organza (I colored it with my ProMarkers as well). This is the first time I've tried stitching. Boy does it take a long time! I'm not one to do much sewing. I'd rather use a safety pin instead of sew a button back on, lol. But, several of the flowers I've tried require sewing... maybe I'll get faster with practice!

And finally, I couldn't resist adding this cute little guy from DigiStamp Boutique. The sentiment is a freebie from TLC Creations. I really like how this turned out.

The papers and ribbon are from my stash. The brads and flowers are from Doodlebug Design and were part of the Blog Candy that I won from Bows & Berries.

Thanks for indulging me in such a long post of previous cards!
