Domestic Goddess

Sadly I am not the Domestic Goddess of this blog post, rather it is some DSP from Stampin' Up!  I used it on a card to enter in the latest challenge at Just Add Ink.  It's a cute little sketch, which was perfect for a cute little card.

This card actually started with the flower, and I built the rest of the card around it.  Instead of using water to wet the cardstock I used Shimmer Paint mixed with Isocol which works just as well and has the added bonus of producing a shimmery flower.

I took a few liberties with the sketch and added a cute little bow in some absolutely sunshiny-fabulous Daffodil Delight Satin ribbon.  There's nothing like a bright yellow bow to bring a smile to your face!

A piece of matching DSP on the inside, and a bit more Daffodil Delight ribbon (1/8" Taffeta this time!) and it's done.

  1. Oh, this made me smile, loving your bright cheery colours and that gorgeous flower Tina, love this card!
    Great take on the JAI sketch!

  2. I like how the Brad in the middle matched the DSP perfectly. I quite often build my cards from the main focal point (like your flower) outwards too. Chantell

  3. The flower is definitely a star Tina and worth building a card around!! Love the bright yellow of flower and ribbon :) Thanks for playing at Just Add Ink.

  4. A lovely bright cheery card and I love the bright yellow feature flower. Thanks for playing with our sketch this week at Just Add Ink.

  5. So bright and happy! I love this DSP too :)

  6. That gorgeous bow is the perfect finishing touch, Tina. Love this happy little card - cute, cute, cute!!
