Make a Wish

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a dandy week. :)

Today, I have another GDT card for i {heart} papers. I've been dying to use my new Storybook stamps, which are available at IHP. The stamps were designed by my friend Heather Campbell, and I think she knocked it out of the park! They are such sweet designs. :)

Here's my card:

Make a Wish

I stamped, colored, and die-cut the duck and butterfly using the Storybook stamps and dies (thanks Heather!). It took me pretty much forever to come up with the design...I must have nudged those papers 100 times. ;)

I used the WPlus9 Pinking Squares Die on the bottom of the My Mind's Eye striped paper. The pretty floral is from BasicGrey's Fresh Cut collection. On the vellum, I used the Paper Smooches Borders 2 die for a scallop. Here's a close-up:

The sentiment is from the Storybook set. I stamped it on a label from the MME Izzy paper and fussy cut the label from a larger sheet.

For the clustering at the top, I dripped too much mist on the heart. Oops! Usually I'm pretty haphazard with my misting and am okay with the randomness, but these splotches looked bad. :( To cover them up, I die-cut a Paper Smooches Stars heart and put the negative on the top. Yeah for saving the project! Wa hoo!

Here's a close-up:
