Hello, hello dear crafty friends.
Today, I want to share this easel card I made and entered recently for the Ben Franklin Crafts "2012 Stamp Aloha Card Contest." We had to use an image by either Sister Stamps, Dandelion Design, or Rubber Stamp Plantation. I chose "Mariko" by Sister Stamps because she's one of my faves and I just LOVE her pose. So "kawaii" (cute).
For this card, I used the "Floral Circle" die by Memory Box, washi paper including Mariko's kimono which I paper-pieced, Copics, Spellbinder dies, laser cut sentiment from Island Scrapbooking, flowers by Wild Orchid and All Natural Accent, leaf die by Spellbinder, leaf punch by Punch Bunch, Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart, distress ink, pearls by Kaiser Crafts, ribbon, and a bead charm that I made.
Here's a close-up of the flowers I couldn't resist splashing on.....
And another close-up.....
A HUGE CONGRATS to all the winners. It's amazing what they and everyone else created. They totally inspire me.
If you'd like to see all the entries, visit Ben Franklin Crafts Hawaii on Facebook. Thank you also to Ben Franklin Crafts for putting on this super fun contest.
