Diana Girl: Growing in Unity Day 5

Today is the last and final day for me to be the returning Growing in Unity Girl this week. So far this week we have played with Ink Smooshing, Heat Embossing, Texture Paste, Black and white images, and now, COLOR, GLORIOUS COLOR!!!

I bring you day 5.

Two cards made using bright colors and patterns. One with pattern using dies and the other with pattern using patterned paper.

Diana Girl

This is the Diana Girl Stamp from Angie Blom and it is one of my favorite from the Angie Girl line. She exhibits the strength each woman has inside her and I love how empowered I can make someone feel when I send them a card using this image. 


For this beautiful, colorful, powerful card, I used the new Birch Press Dazzle Layering dies for the background. These are really neat and you layer the three die cuts to create this intricate pattern. Eye catching and bold, am I right? 


I went with the tried and true Copic Coloring for the Diana girl  and just fussy cut her out and popped her up on foam tape. Simple, more simple than it looks, for sure! 

The second card I wanted to show was this one.

You Make Cute Babies



As you can see, this is a very colorful and bold card as well. Almost all the colors are a result of the adorable paper, excluding the one bit of coloring on the heart. This card also uses simple layering of die cuts to create a cohesive looking card.

  8. Wow! The layered Birch Press dies really set off the Diana stamp. I have looked at and then passed this stamp over many times because I couldn't think outside the box for a way to showcase it. I love how this one turned out. Your week has inspired me to really work on my coloring skills and to use layers. You rock!
