Clear and Simple: June Group Project

I am so excited because today is my first Group Post as a CSS DT member! For this group post, our challenge was to make our own patterned paper!

So here is my card and a few shots of the paper that I made!

Here is how I did it....

paper step 1

I took the line stamp in the set and just alternated colors!  I used Toile Pink, Hay Stack Versamagic, and Green Studio G.

paper step 2

Then I went back over it again to make a plaid design.

paper step 3

And here is my paper all finished!

paper step 4

I matted the paper with green cardstock, added some ribbon and the main focal point!  I stamped the branch image and the nest in Burnt Umber, colored the leaves in with a Copic marker and then added a pink egg! 

welcome little one

Last, I stamped the sentiment again in Burnt Umber and then colored the "welcome" in with a brown colored pencil! 

I am so glad you stopped by today!  We are off and running with Summer! We have VBS this week, along with swimming lessons everyday and three nights of softball!  We are all going to need a vacation from summer vacation!  But we are already having tons of fun!  I am also getting settled into my new room!  I decided to move in temporarily until I can decide on furniture and a good arrangement!  I have some  pics I will share soon!

Hope you have a great day!
