Welcome Back DT Alum- Michelle Pearson as our Guest Designer for August

Hello! Michelle Pearson here and I am so excited to have been asked to be a Guest Designer for The Rubber Cafe this month!  Creative Cafe Kits  are new since I was on The Rubber Cafe Design Team and this is my first time to play with one of these spectacular kits! 

Here's a look at my first card made from all the lovely goodness in this kit!
I chose to go with the Flower Bouquet stamp set for my first card.  I just love the leaf image in this set.

Before I could stop myself I was stamping it repeatedly on some green designer paper from the My Mind's Eye Market Street 6x6 paper pad, included in the kit.  I then added some shading to the leaves with Copic Markers G46 and G43 before cutting them out.
Included in this pack were some Bazzil Bling cardstock and black cardstock.  I matted the bling cardstock on the black and then created a wreath with the leaves I had cut out.

You can see in this photo the dimension I achieved by glue dotting the bottom of the leaf and then tucking some foam tape under the top portion of the leaf.

I colored the flower with Copic Markers R29, R24, R22, R21.  Cut out the flower, apply to card with foam tape and adorn with a Queen and Co Sunflower gem.

Stamped the two leaf images and colored with Copic Markers YG67, YG17, YG25.  Attaching to card as shown.

To finish off my card I wrapped some of the green seam binding around the bottom of the card and then tie a chipboard button to your card from the MME Market Street Chipboard Buttons set.  
Thanks for letting me share my project, I look forward to sharing again next week!
