Welcome to the first day of our new CT presentations! I am so excited to craft with the lovely ladies whose names and blog links are found on the right side of our blog - give them a shout-out!!
Happy Birthday to our daughter, Melissa - she'll be celebrating her big event on June 10! Mama LoveBug here to share my birthday greetings with you. Birthdays are so much fun to craft and share. I really enjoy creating something that I hope will stand the test of time and be appreciated as a sincere expression of love!
Ok, so you know I love, love, love paper dolls and I bought a set of stamps, Janie's Paper Dolls from Paper Wishes, that has multiple girls of varying sizes. I stamped this one three times - one for body, one for hair, and one for dress. I then fussy cut and pieced together this gal as my focal point. Before I adhered her to the card I adhered this lovely to a piece of cardboard and cut the whole thing out again - I do this to make a sturdier doll that won't fall off or come apart.
I next used LoveBug Creations Mama's Mesh (pinky/purple HERE) and an LBC large hot pink Beautiful Bloom HERE. The hand-dyed mesh gives such wonderful texture and the bloom is so light-weight but dynamic in it's presence plus the blooms come in different sizes to accommodate your crafting needs!
The coordinating card base was from Stampin UP as well as the next dry embossed mat with xoxox. I had a new script stamp that fit well as the next layer. My birthday sentiment was from my stamp stash. I finshed this off with a bit of gel-pen accenting.
Remember no matter how you bunch your blooms, rumple your ribbon, and piece your paper, have fun with it...............cyber happy crafting............Mama LoveBug
