Cooking It Up With Katie #11 and DT Call

Hello fellow crafters!

I have decided to go for my first attempt at a design team! Katie, at Cooking it Up With Katie Challenge Blog, is looking for 4-6 crafters to join her as DT's on her biweekly challenge. Check out her site, enter her challenge, then email her with your details and maybe you could be part of the DT!

So the challenge this week was to make something girly, use paper piecing, and use at least 2 designer/patterned papers. Here is my entry:

I can never decide which pictures to use, so I'll just include them all!

The easel card is made with Stampin' UP confetti cream paper. I layered the seafoam designer over the red/pink paisley dp and then added the ribbon and the charm. The girl image is from Stampin' Up set Summer by the Sea. I stamped her on white and colored her with watercolor crayons and a blender pen. The next step was to cut her out and adhere her to the card with pop dots.

I used the Big Shot and Borderabilities die called Eyelets to make the layer on the bottom of the card. The large pearl was added at the bottom to make the easel stay up, and then I continued the pattern of pearls up the paper to make it look like the large one was part of the swirl. Added some more pearls at the top, and then because I thought it needed just a little something extra I used diamond dust in the eyelets of the border paper!

This card also qualifies for these challenges:
