I made this card for the Gina K Designs Monthly Mix Challenge.
Stamp sets used: Tropical Blooms, A Beautiful Life
The paper is Lawn Fawn, Gotta Have Gingham (retired). I added the black layer when it the frame looked odd on the blue background. The black made a difference. The card base is My Favorite Things card stock. I have a set of many colors and just flip through till I have a match.
Here is the card I made last year with this stamp set.
Having fun with a new Gerda Steiner Designs stamp.
I used a Darice embossing folder for the tree. It is cut from SU Chocolate Chip cardstock, with the leaves colored with several markers laying close. I used Celebrate Autumn from Echo Park for the paper piecing. The bear is colored with various alcohol markers. This was fun to create. It has been quite a while since I paper pieced. I will post this to Gerda Steiner Designs challenge for September.
