Create!

I am still having way too much fun playing with the new Darling Diva's release from High Hopes Rubber Stamps! This week "Gemma" our little artist was the focus of my creativity. 

I don't know about anyone else, but after a long day there is nothing like heading for my craft room, turning on the music and pulling out the markers. I usually have to ignore the stink eye from my dog laying in the door way staring me down, but it is a relaxing way to end the day. I feel like Gemma might feel the same way...




 I coloured sweet Gemma with alcohol markers and cut her out using a banner die. There is some clear sparkle pen on the big heart and flower but it's hard to see. 
The card layout is fun to do. The middle is plastic! You form your card base and cut the middle out, glue in some plastic (today I used a page refill) and glue it on. I used the Best Glue Ever (link below) - it dries super fast, works on plastic and you don't need much of it. The sentiment on the front was created on my computer, and some ribbon and sparkly gumdrops finish off the front. 

The inside is simply some white cardstock trimmed with matching light blue cardstock, stamped with a mini heart stamp using matching ink and a sentiment.
