Let's Catch Up!

Welcome to Crafter's Companion!!  Stacy here today with a project I made using a stamp from the super sweet new collection from the Humphrey's Corner stamp line.

I LOVE Humphrey and his siblings!!  These stamps just call to my heart.  I was so excited when I heard there was a new collection coming out.  This collection is called A Year With Humphrey.  There are 12 gorgeous new stamps for us to enjoy!!!  WOO HOO!!  lol
I decided to start with Girl Talk.  This is really just the cutest stamp ever!!   I love how girlie it is.  I stamped out the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers.  This really is the best paper to use with our Spectrum Noir markers.  And of course I colored my image with my Spectrum Noir markers!!  And why wouldn't I?  They are the best alcohol ink markers for the price!!  And they color beautifully!!! 

I also wanted to paper piece the dresses. I just love the added bit of texture and dimension it gives to my project.  So I stamped out the image twice more onto two different pieces of patterned paper.  And then I fussy cut out the the dresses.  I glued them down onto my colored image and then cut out the image with some dies on my Cuttlebug.  I layered matching patterned paper and card stock to make up my card.

I found the perfect bit of ribbon in a bag of goodies I bought from Maya Road.  I think the colors were perfect for this project.  I love how the pinks and browns go together so nicely.   I stamped my sentiment directly onto the patterned paper and added it to the front. 
I used some of my matching papers to simply decorate the inside of the card too.  I love the flowers on the ribbon and in the patterned paper I used.  This card would be perfect to enter in the May Flower Challenge on the Crafter's Companion USA Challenge Blog this month.   I hope to see your flower projects over there this month!!
