All Things Grow with Love

Stamps: Magnolia image, Papertrey 'Everyday Button Bits' sentiment. Ink: Memento black, Copics. Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Bella Rose DP, Papertrey white. Accessories: Nestabilities rectangle and scalloped circle, Matha Stewart leaf punch, SU scallop circle punch, Stardust glitter pen, white gel pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, jumbo paper clip.

The original plan for this card was to include the paper flower on the card, but it just seemed a bit overpowering for the CAS version of Midnight Madness Sketch challenge #46 . Instead, it ended up on its very own display -- a jumbo clip, suitable for marking any spot with a very visible paper zinnia!


The inspiration for creating this flower (first admired on the TUTORIAL on the Lord Have Mercy blog) was the Opus Gluei challenge #47 to 'use paper in a new way'. Thanks for getting me moving on trying this fun technique, Jana and Rosemary!

  1. Tild is just gorgeous Jess, wow those copic markers are brilliant, your colouring, can I say again, is amazing, and I agree the flower would have been too much on the card but as a gorgeous bookmark just wonderful, I am actually going to the tutorial now, I love it. these would look great clustered on a layout? I think. Thanks for inspiring me today. Love Melxxx

  11. Jessica your card is just so sweet and adorable. I how you paper pieced Tilda's dress with coordinating paper. And talk about paper, your background paper is amazing...just darling with Tilda. I love your Zinnia paper clip. What a great gift combo...I know I would love to have the clip as a book marker. This is just captivating and charming. Thank you so much for playing along with us at the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. We appreciate you gracing us with your fabulous creation.
