Guest Designer Vanessa Menhorn - Part 2

Sorry guys, this post comes with a delay - my bad!

As you know the super talented Vanessa Menhorn is our Guest designer this month. (Aren't we lucky? She's simply amazing and you need to visit her swoon-worthy blog!)

Here's what Vanessa has for you:


Hey everyone!

Here I am with my second card for this month! I hope you like it!

I love happy colors on Kraft. Paper-piecing the cute umbrella with cute patterned paper perfectly fit!

1. Make card from cardstock
2. Trim a panel of Kraft cardstock slightly smaller than the cardbase
3. Stamp the sentiment and the umbrellas onto the panel with black ink
4. Stamp umbrellas onto various patterned papers and cut them out
5. Adhere the umbrellas to the card, trim excess from edges
6. Adhere panel to cardbase

When cutting out images, always turn the paper, not the scissors to achieve clean edges. I wanted my card to be flat, but for more interest, adhere some umbrellas with foam tape.


What a great card - Vanessa is right, the umbrellas look so cute with those patterns. Do you like paper piecing? Or do you find it too time-consuming?

Thanks for visiting! :)
