Hello, Lakeside Stamper Readers!
It's been a bit quiet on my blog, because I'm working behind the scenes on my class schedule and projects, my Etsy store and newsletter. Although I feel a bit laid back during these lazy days of summer, have no fear there will be plenty of posts in the near future.
Today, I'm featuring a guest stamper, my sister-in-law Diane. This is a card Diane made for her boss Linda's birthday. I have to say it's quite lovely. Yellow and purple is one of my favorite color combinations, so much so, I have a huge garden in these two colors.
For this card Diane used the brand new Stampin' Up! stamp, Hello, Doily #122845. On a piece of Whisper White, Diane stamped the doily image in Summer Sun Ink (retired). Across the bottom, in Basic Black Ink, a happy birthday message was stamped. The left side of the Whisper White layer was punched with the Eyelet Border Punch #119853. A piece of Basic Black Card Stock was layered underneath and was edged using the Eyelet Border Punch once again. The Basic Black Card Stock layer really pops the stamped Whisper White layer and by using the Eyelet Border punch Diane mirrored the edge of the doily. Perfect!
The corner flowers are Stampin' Up!'s Paper Daisies #119243 which Diane dyed. How you might ask?? Diane simply took her Stampin' Spots and rubbed them over the daisies. The leaves were made from cutting up a sheet of Designer Series Paper.
All the layers were adhered on to a Summer Sun Card base and embellished with Circle Ice Rhinestones #109111.
Diane had a vision for this card and through a creative process made her vision happen, with no help from me I might add.
NICE JOB DIANE!

Color Theory Tip: Why These Colors Work Well Together…
These colors work very well together, because they're complementary colors. Complementary colors are any two colors which are directly opposite each other, such as red and green and red-purple and yellow-green. These opposing colors create maximum contrast and maximum stability.
Thanks for stopping by and please send me some of your stampin' projects!
