I have been following the Stampin’ Up! 2011 Artisan Award Blog Hop and have seen some amazing projects using Stampin’ Up! products. I was blown away when I saw the card that Summer Stone made using the Kimono Kids stamp set (p156 IB&C). She had done a lot of fussing cutting but I loved how she had made the skirt flair out so I just had to have a go, this is a close up of the skirt as it is hard to see this detail in the first photo:
I used the Splitcoast Stampers Card Sketch Challenge SC342 for my layout:
The reason for all the extra pearls was inspired by Connie Collins Artisan Award winning card. She made an amazing card with heaps of swirly pearls that she had placed freehand.
The teeny tiny flowers on the little girl have been punched out with a NEW Lace Ribbon Border punch that will be available when the new Australian catalogue goes live on 1 September. As a demonstrator I got to order the punch in my pre-order this month.
