Day 3 with Vera

***Sorry this is up so late Blogger was giving me big trouble this morning . . .grr***

Good Morning! I can't believe it's Wednesday already, this week with Vera Yates is just flying by.

Before I get into today's cards I wanted to say I been seeing a lot of you are visiting this week and I'm so grateful! I hope you all our enjoying this inspiration week as much as I am :)  If you have the time please leave a comment, even if it's just a "Hi! Here's my blog". I love coming to visit you guys too! I'm always looking for new places to find inspiration :)

Today is the last day for Lawn Fawn and we are using Bannerific. This set was one of my first Lawn Fawn purchases. The banners can be used so many ways.

I decided to create a uni-sex birthday card. These are always nice to have on hand for the forgotten unexpected.

I stamped the banner several times on a white to create my own pattern paper. I then stamped it on another piece of white and cut them all out to color. Yes this is a little insane, I know :) but i have never shied away from the time consuming as long as it looks the way I had hoped in the end. It really stinks when it doesn't though lol.  I had to create a little identification system too, since every banner piece is different. I colored the blue banners with tumbled glass, broken china, and faded jeans. The orange banners with scattered straw, spiced marmalade, and rusty hinge. The green was done with shabby shutters, peeled paint, and forest moss. Once they were all colored I adhered them flat.

I cut the label with my nestabilities labels 4, then traced the outer edge on black for the layered piece. Once I put together my layered pieces I attached them with foam. The buttons have been threaded with blue yarn. Funny thing is the blue yarn is what Kelly Marie packaged my stamp sets with so I'm really all Lawn Fawn today hehe! I know the bow is a little girlie but i figured I can change it to a knot if it ends going to a male. The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn's Year One set.

I'm off to see what the AMAZING Vera made! I hope you'll come back tomorrow when we start featuring Hero Arts!
