justjohanna Meets Daisyd


Good morning folks! Today I'm going to share some children's cards with you. Do you ever find yourself puzzled when it comes to creating these cards? I know I do. When I saw Daisyd's Wonder Years "Best Friends" cardstock chipboard, I decided that it would make a wonderful children's series. Stephanie is the artist who designed the Wonder Years line.


Here is a close up of the characters. They were coloured with pencil crayon and OMS, and Twinkling H2O's. Can you see the 3-D flowers I added to the dress? I love to embellish, as you probably know. All paper is Daisyd.




Combining stamps with stickers and chipboard opened a whole new world for me. My nieces and nephews will be delighted with these characters. justjohanna's stamps go well with Daisyd, wouldn't you agree? I think "they" think so too--just look at the smiles on their faces.










These trick or treaters are a little early, but that's okay; I always have goodies in my pantry all year round.


The next time you walk past cute characters, such as these, pick them up and try combining them with your stamps. It really does add that something special to a card.
